Australian-based Monger Gold has announced the appointment of experienced lithium and development professional Adam Ritchie as chief executive officer following an extensive global executive search. 

Ritchie has over 20 years’ experience in the resources sector having worked for multiple global leaders in the metals and mining space. Monger Gold said its Board believes Ritchie’s intimate technical and commercial knowledge of the lithium market makes him the ideal candidate to lead the company through its next exciting phase. 

“Adam is the former project director of Pilbara Mineral’s world-class Pilgangoora Lithium Project and brings tremendous enthusiasm and experience to assist MMG’s growth into a globally recognised lithium business. Adam has a deep understanding of the lithium space and significant experience having worked on numerous world-class mining projects,” said Peretz Schapiro, non-executive chair.

“A business is only as good as its people, and with Adam at the helm, we are confident that we will deliver significant shareholder value.”
