Technology Metals Australia Appoints Mining Industry Leader Dr Carmen Letton As Non-Executive Director

Technology Metals Australia Ltd (ASX:TMT) has invited mining engineer and mineral economist Dr Carmen Letton to the board as a non-executive director, replacing founding director Sonu Cheema as he steps back into the role of company secretary.
Letton has 35 years’ global mining experience with a background in senior leadership roles in operations, business improvement and operational excellence.
She has particular technical expertise in open pit and underground mines across multiple commodities and the many stages of asset development.
Letton was most recently the head of resource development and life of asset planning (Asset Strategy Development) at Anglo American, having previously worked at BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Newmont, Newcrest and several other international mining companies.
“A great addition to the TMT board”
“The appointment of Dr Letton is a great addition to the TMT board. Her extensive mining experience and technical background is going to be very important as TMT advances its Australian vanadium development strategies through the implementation of the Murchison Technology Metals Project,” Technology Metals Australia chair Michael Fry said.
“Dr Letton’s appointment to the board follows the recent engagement of Elisha Civil, a highly credentialed finance professional who was most recently group manager finance and tax at Fortescue Metals Group (ASX:FMG), as chief financial officer commencing early September 2022.”
Letton was selected as one of the “100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining” in 2016 and 2018 by Women in Mining UK.
She holds a PhD Mineral Economics from the University of Queensland and a Bachelor of Engineering (Hon) (Mining) from the West Australian School of Mines, Kalgoorlie.
“I am excited to join the TMT team at this critical point in time,” the incoming non-executive director said.
“The advanced development roadmap for the Murchison Technology Metals Project represents a unique and industry-defining opportunity at both domestic and global levels.
“This is highlighted by the rapidly advancing energy storage and steel-based consumption applications of vanadium that will result in a positive generational and environmental change for our local and global communities.”
