Pacific American Holdings Ltd (ASX:PAK) has appointed David Thompson as VP of Operations to the Elko Coking Coal project in British Columbia, Canada.

Progressing towards completion of PFS

The Elko project has nine coal seams drilled out to a JORC-compliant level and is proximate to key infrastructure such as existing rail to the port of Vancouver, which provides direct access to the target north Asian markets.

PAK continues to advance Elko towards the completion of a pre-feasibility study for the project.

PAK’s chairman Geoff Hill said: “Appointing a highly experienced Canadian Coal professional to our team is an important milestone for PAC and will enable us to accelerate the development of Elko into the world‐class coking coal project we believe it to be.

“The appointment of David Thompson now means we have a seasoned and trusted professional based at Elko and we welcome him to our team.”
