“I look forward to bringing my experience into the project funding as the business leverages the upside of stage development with market expansion on its pathway to production, said Mr. Goldberg.
Expressing his delight in working with Prospect Resources, Mr. Goldberg said Prospect’s Resources, exposure to European markets, and off-taker relationships are what attracted him to being a member of the group.
“I am delighted to work alongside the existing management team to lead Prospect during this transformational period as it seeks to develop the Arcadia Lithium Project. What attracted me to Prospect is the quality of assets, the strength of management team, exposure to European markets, off-taker relationships, and supportive major shareholders.”
Prospect Managing Director Mr. Hosack said Mr. Goldberg’s financial expertise will enhance the company’s growth as it finalises offtake and progresses project finance for the world-class Arcadia Lithium Project.
“The appointment of Mr. Goldberg, a chartered accountant, and finance professional with more than 20 years’ experience in the resources sector, is a key addition to Prospect’s senior leadership team as the Company finalises offtake and progresses project finance for the world-class Arcadia Lithium Project,” said Mr. Hosack.
He further stated that Mr. Goldberg is the rightful candidate for the post with his objective to secure Project Finance.
“Mr. Goldberg brings development capabilities, African operational experience, and a track record funding mining projects. Mr. Goldberg is the perfect fit for Arcadia’s pathway to production, with his mandate to secure Project Finance utilising his broad and extensive capabilities.”
Mr. Hosack applauded Chris Hilbrands for being committed to his work for the past eight years he has served Prospect Resources.
Mr. Goldberg is a chartered accountant and finance professional with more than 20 years of experience in the resources sector. His most recent role was CFO for Tiger Resources, a copper producer in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Prior to that role, he held a number of CFO positions at producing mining companies across Africa and Australia.
