He’s back!

Bill Beament, the driving force behind the Northern Star Resources (ASX:NST) juggernaut which generated such exceptional returns for shareholders, is returning to the Resources Rising Stars (RRS) Gold Coast investor conference with his new company Develop Global (ASX:DVP).

Armed with two high-growth Australian battery metals projects and the mining contract for Bellevue Gold (ASX:BGL), Beament is heading to RRS next month to speak personally with investors.

Investors can register to watch him present either in person or online, at www.resourcesrisingtars.com.au. Attendance is free.

The exceptional drilling results released by Develop today highlight the strong growth outlook for the company’s Sulphur Springs copper-zinc project in WA’s Pilbara.

The results contain extremely high-grade assays such as 65.1m at 3.5% copper equivalent. They are consistent with Develop’s strategy to upgrade a substantial proportion of the Inferred Resource to the Indicated category.

This will pave the way for an increased Reserve, optimised mine development plan, revised project costings and finalisation of funding options.

The assays also extend the known mineralisation, highlighting the potential to increase the total inventory. This mineralisation will be pursued in a follow-up drilling program later this year.

Beament is also working flat out behind the scenes on Develop’s recently-acquired Woodlawn zinc-copper project in NSW. Woodlawn, which is on care and maintenance, comprises an underground mine, a significant JORC Resource and Reserve and a new processing plant.

Beament will update RRS conference delegates on his plans to capitalise on the huge opportunities flowing from the electrification of the world.

He will be joined at the Rising Stars conference by Bellevue Gold chief executive Darren Stralow, who is working closely with Develop in its role as mine contractor at the company’s Bellevue Gold Project in WA.

Bellevue is fully-funded and on track to become a 200,000oz a year producer. At the same time, it aims to be the first carbon-neutral gold mine, further increasing its investment appeal to global institutions.

Bellevue and Develop are just two of more than 40 high-growth resources companies which will present at next month’s conference.

In line with this year’s theme of “Be on the Right Side of the Boom”, the conference will feature some of the biggest names in the hottest commodities, including lithium, nickel, copper and critical minerals.

There is also a host of leading ASX gold companies, ranging from early-stage explorers through to project developers and well-established producers.

And there is a keynote address from former Federal Liberal Party leader and highly regarded commentator John Hewson.

The two-day conference will be held on June 7-8 at the RACV Royal Pines Resort. Morning and afternoon tea, lunch and networking drinks are provided each day and there is no attendance fee for investors.

RRS is Australia’s leading investment conference with a strong emphasis on retail investors. Now in its 19th year, the conference prides itself on enabling investors to talk directly to company managing directors, providing an unrivalled opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the projects, their potential and the investment proposition.

Other presenting companies include lithium producer Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS), copper miner Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR) and Chalice Mining (ASX:CHN).

Among the many other high-growth companies presenting at this year’s conference are nickel miner Mincor Resources (ASX:MCR), emerging mineral sands producer Strandline Resources (ASX:STA), successful copper explorer Stavely Minerals (ASX:SVY) and new gold producer Calidus Resources (ASX:CAI).

Uranium explorer DevEx Resources (ASX:DEV) will be there along with its Tim Goyder stablemate, lithium developer Liontown Resources (ASX:LTR), and Brazilian nickel developer Centaurus Metals (ASX:CTM).
