A new lithium boss in town


Keep up with the latest executive movements across the mining sector, featuring Core Lithium, Kalamazoo Resources, and Hawsons Iron.


Core Lithium has appointed Paul Brown as chief executive officer (CEO), following the resignation of former boss Gareth Manderson in March.

Brown was formerly CEO of Hastings Technology since September 2023. Prior to this, he worked at Mineral Resources (MinRes) for eight years, progressing from general manager of the Pilbara operations to CEO – lithium and iron ore.

“Core is an excellent company with the potential to grow into a significant lithium company,” Brown said. “I will focus on an operational review of the Finniss lithium project and the opportunities for the exploration program to grow resources.”


Kalamazoo Resources executive director Paul Adams will transition to a non-executive director role at the company. At the same time, Adams will become managing director of Kali Metals, of which Kalamazoo is a significant shareholder.

Adams has been Kalamazoo’s executive director since 2020, leading exploration efforts at the Ashburton gold project, with significant results.

The Ashburton project is currently subject to an option to acquire agreement with De Grey Mining.


Hawsons Iron has appointed Tom Revy as the company’s new CEO. Revy has over 35 years’ of resources industry experience, including as managing director of graphite developer Evion Group.

Revy founded Evion in 2016 and only recently left the company after production commenced.

“The board is delighted Tom is joining the company as CEO, given his considerable experience both advising on major development projects and leading junior mining companies from exploration through to … production,” Hawsons chair Jeremy Kirkwood said.

“Our Hawsons Iron project, which has been granted major project status by the Federal Government … is recognised as a potential supplier of critical feed material for the decarbonisation of the global steel industry.

“The board considers Tom’s appointment critical for completion of our proposed bankable feasibility study and the commencement of project construction.”
