The company believes newly appointed geologist Barry Bourne is “an innovator” who has designed, proposed, and implemented a full range of initiatives through his experience gained while working within the mining industry.

Titan Minerals has added geological expertise to its board of directors with the appointment of Barry Bourne as non-executive director.

Throughout his career, Titan Minerals (ASX:TTM) said Bourne has demonstrated exploration success and strong leadership qualities alongside technical ability having specialised in survey design, acquisition, processing, modelling, inversion, data integration, and drill hole targeting.

TTM said Bourne’s work with Barrick Gold Corp included six years in-country experience in developing nations (Papua New Guinea, East/West Africa, South America) and three years working on the Carlin trend in the USA.

More importantly, Bourne has advanced knowledge for targeting both epithermal and porphyry mineralisation, the likes of which TTM’s prospects in Ecuador have revealed.

Catching ‘tigers by the tail’

Titan non-executive chairman Peter Cook said this marked another transformational appointment for the company.

“Barry brings the company a wealth of experience and knowledge in evaluating and prioritising exploration targets.

“We have some ‘tigers by the tail’ in Ecuador and his extensive experience in conducting resource focused exploration will assist us in realising the full potential of our assets in this emerging gold and copper belt in South America.”
