Cornish Lithium boosts top team

Patrick Forward (l) and Henry Chalcraft

Cornish Lithium has appointed two new people to its senior management team.

Patrick Forward has been named head of project development – hard rock minerals while Henry Chalcraft has joined as land agent.

Forward brings a wealth of experience of developing a multitude of hard rock base and precious metals projects across the globe.

Chalcraft, meanwhile, has enjoyed a successful career in both land management and minerals extraction. Cornish Lithium says the combination of his experience in these two sectors will be of great benefit as it looks to consolidate its mineral rights portfolio.

Founder and CEO, Jeremy Wrathall, said: “On behalf of Cornish Lithium, I would like to offer Patrick and Henry a warm welcome to the company. We are delighted to continue to attract such high calibre individuals as we work towards the development of our exciting portfolio.

“They will be joining us at a busy time as we work towards the publication of the maiden resource statement at Trelavour and the commissioning of the pilot plant at United Downs. These activities will be key milestones in our journey to establish an innovative minerals extraction industry for Cornwall and the UK.”
