Fagan has 30 years experience in the resources industry with a strong metallurgical engineering background and has worked with leading mineral sands equipment suppliers.

Zircon managing director Johann van Zyl said the appointments will play a valuable role in the company’s continued development and are part of a ramp-up program.

The company is hoping to reach its targeted annualised production rate of 35,000tpa by June 2009.
