José is a business savvy mining executive who has achieved continual sustainability through focused strategic workflow, staffing and business practice. He is well-versed with various project types, operations start-up, operations ramp-up and business profitability with focus on sustainability.

José has strong risk management and financial experience with proven results achieved in South America.
Phil Thomas, CEO of the Company, commented, "José and I met in Argentina on my recent trip and compared our experience and knowledge and realised the powerful tactical and strategic contribution we can make. We are excited to have Jose on our team advising us. Combining my 20 plus years of geological exploration to production experience in Argentina along with José's 20 plus years makes for a strong team to move our Argentina projects forward."
Nader Vatanchi, VP Corporate Finance of the Company, said, "one of José's major achievements was the operation of a $300 million lithium carbonate plant from definitive feasibility study to complete commercial construction. He was also intimately involved in the acquisition and readapting of the Borax Argentina S.A. Operations of Rio Tinto Plc, changing their business focus and operation priorities. There is no doubt that José's vast experience and knowledge in production and plant construction in Argentina will be a huge value-add to Spey moving forward and we are very excited to have him on our team."
