Metal Tiger plc - Director and Thai Competent Person Report update
Metal Tiger Plc
("Metal Tiger" or the "Company")
Director and Thai Competent Person Report update
Metal Tiger (LON: MTR), the natural resources investing company is pleased to announce that the Company has taken delivery of the first draft PEA CPR relating to the Song-Toh and Boh Yai silver lead zinc mines from SRK and is currently working with the SRK team to enhance the project fundamentals and optimise the economics at the PEA level.
The draft updated PEA CPR has provided the company with more confidence with regard to the mineralisation interpretation, mine schedule and project costs. The techno-economic work is also highlighting areas for ongoing studies to increase revenue and cost accuracy for any future studies. The Company will update the market when the report is finalised.
With effect from 1st May 2017, Geoff McIntyre has stepped down from his Executive post with Metal Tiger to become a Non-Executive director of the Company. Geoff has been instrumental in helping with the proposed Thai IPO and seeing as the IPO has significantly progressed with the appropriate management having been put in place for the spin out, Geoff and the Board believe it makes more sense for a reduced time commitment. Geoff will be spending more time on his personal business interests but will still make a very valuable contribution to the ongoing success of Metal Tiger’s interests. The Board wishes Geoff every success with his personal ventures and looks forward to working with him during his continued association with the Company.
