TYMTertiary Minerals plc is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of Richard Belcher as its Exploration Manager for Zambia.

Richard is a multi-commodity, multi-disciplined explorationist with a strong technical background and 19 years’ post-PhD experience across all stages of exploration with an emphasis on gold and base metals in Africa, including in Zambia.

He has a proven capability from reconnaissance through to resource stage in challenging environments and was most recently a senior consulting geologist to Altus Strategies before its recent merger with Elemental Royalties.
