This appointment is highly significant in my opinion, Tony Makuch has been associated with the growth of several successful mining companies in the past, with Kirkland lake being his last company.

I like Karora because of the production and exploration potential of not only the gold, but also the nickel, where in normal times this offers the safety of one or other going up if the other falls, as they belong in opposing sectors.

They are achieving stated objectives, are located in a world class jurisdiction close to Kalgoorlie, and look set to achieve shareholder growth in the future.

This appointment validates the potential for Karora in my view.
