Erris Resources (ERIS) , the European focused mineral exploration company, appointed Mr. Anton du Plessis as new Chief Executive Officer today.

Mr. du Plessis has over 20 years’ experience in the finance sector, with a focus on advising natural resources companies on the execution of strategic and financing transactions. 

He has held senior positions at several international investment banks including CIBC (The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce), Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. 

Mr. du Plessis has a proven track record across a range of commodities, working on transactions for a number of leading global players including Anglogold Ashanti, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton.

Jeremy Martin, Chairman of Erris Resources, commented: “Attracting someone of Anton's calibre, with a track record of advising leading mining companies, will be a positive addition to the team.” 

The appointment follows the resignation of Merlin Marr-Johnson as a director of the Company, also today, who has elected to step down to pursue other business interests.

“He has invaluable specialist knowledge, experience and a wealth of international industry contacts, which will be of particular value as we work to build the value in Erris Resources through the development of our asset portfolio and its strategy to identify high value opportunities."

Erris Resources has an established portfolio of zinc assets in Ireland and gold projects in Sweden, with support and financial backing from major Canadian mining majors including Osisko Gold Royalties and TSX listed Centerra Gold.
