White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX:WCN) has identified and implemented savings of circa $500,000 per annum by rightsizing its management and exploration team, and lowering admin expenses.

The company secretary and CFO role will now be outsourced, the head office will also be moved once the lease expires in June 2019, and Todd Hibberd has waived his $30,000 director fees.

White Cliff’s Nicholas Ong said: “It is unfortunate that White Cliff has to let go some of its staff, however the cost reductions were necessary to reduce cash burn and enables White Cliff to re-direct its resources toward exploration work which ultimately drives value to shareholders.”

The company’s exploration team and support staff in Kyrgyzstan remain unaffected.

Following the departure of a senior geologist, the Australian exploration team will now consist of Hibberd and an exploration geologist.

The reduction of headcount will not impact the Company’s ability to continue with its exploration work at the 90% owned Aucu Copper-Gold project in Kyrgyzstan and gold-cobalt-nickel projects in Western Australia.
