Riversdale welcomes the nomination of Mr Tadeusz Watroba as the Hancock representative on the Company’s Board. Mr Watroba has more than 40 years total experience in the mining industry, including more than 20 years managing the mining interests of the Hancock group. In that capacity he has been personally involved in the Roy Hill project’s evaluation studies, permitting, construction and operations. Mr Watroba has also worked across a range of other commodities, including manganese, gold, brown and black coal, oil shale, copper, zinc and lead, and in both underground and open cut operations.

Riversdale intends to utilize proceeds from the share issue to meet its obligations in respect of its existing debt facilities in addition to further progressing the permitting and pre-development activities at its flagship Grassy Mountain Coal Project. These works include project permitting including costs associated with the recently announced Joint Review Panel process, project detailed engineering, port reservation fees, early procurement and the further development of our team in the Crowsnest Pass. In addition, the Company is continuing to progress the re-development of the Crowsnest Pass Golf Course and Clubhouse to facilitate access to land required for the automated train loadout.

The Riversdale Board is delighted to welcome Hancock as a major shareholder of Riversdale. The Board believes the addition of Hancock to our share register further supports the view of Grassy Mountain being an outstanding hard coking coal development opportunity and anticipates a number of benefits from their involvement given their considerable expertise in large scale project and infrastructure development and well established relationships with Asia’s major steelmakers.
