Rossouw will be responsible for the development of Hodges’ Morupule South and Moiyabana projects in the coal-rich southern African country.

Roussouw’s most recent assignments were as chief executive of Toronto-based Maple Minerals and as advisor to the chairman for Philex Mining Corporation, the largest gold and copper producer in the Philippines.

He has more than 25 years of international mining industry experience having also held senior technical, operational, project and executive management roles with BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Anglo American, Goldfields and Placer Dome.

The appointment of a new technical operations manager coincides with Hodges’ recent progress with Morupule South and Moiyabana.

The Perth-based company said last week that initial wash testing at Morupule South confirmed the presence of numerous shallow export quality coal seams.

A maiden JORC resource for Moiyabana is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2012.
