Adriatic Metals Appoints Industry Veteran Laura Tyler as Non-Executive Director

Adriatic Metals PLC has announced the appointment of industry veteran Laura Tyler as a Non-Executive Director, effective 1 July 2024

Ms Tyler brings over three decades of mining industry expertise, specialising in technical, technology, and safety applications for Tier 1 projects globally. Her distinguished 20-year tenure at BHP Limited (BHP), the world’s largest listed mining group, saw her take on several pivotal roles. 

In her new role at Adriatic Metals, Ms Tyler will initially serve on the Sustainability Committee and the Remuneration & Nomination Committee. This strategic appointment aligns with Adriatic’s commitment to bolstering its Board as it advances towards becoming a premier European producer of critical metals

As the inaugural Chief Technical Officer (2020-2024), she spearheaded BHP’s digital transformation, following her impactful terms as Asset President at Olympic Dam (2018-2020), Chief Geoscientist (2016-2020), and Chief of Staff to BHP’s CEO (2015-2018). Notably, her role as Asset President of BHP’s Cannington mine enriched her understanding of polymetallic underground mining.

Ms Tyler’s career spans the Americas, Australia, the UK, and Africa, with significant contributions to the base metals, diamonds, aluminium, and iron ore sectors. Her robust educational background includes qualifications from Harvard Business School, the Australian Institute of Directors, Women & Leadership Australia, a MSc in Mining Engineering from Camborne School of Mines, and a BSc in Geology from Cardiff University.

Her credentials in sustainability are impressive, currently serving on the Board of the Australian Federal Government Net Zero Economy Agency and leading the Diversity Committee at the Mining Council Australia Workforce Committee. She has also held numerous international leadership roles within the Women in Mining organisation.

Commenting on the appointment, Michael Rawlinson, Chairman of Adriatic Metals, stated, “Laura Tyler is a very welcome addition to the Board, providing exceptional knowledge of not only the technical complexities of mining and producing from polymetallic orebodies, but also embracing and implementing the latest cutting-edge technologies in the mining industry. This unique offering, along with her understanding of the highest levels of safety, governance, and diversity, aligns perfectly with Adriatic’s corporate ethos and focus on sustainable and modern mining in Europe. I and the rest of the Board and management are excited to be working with Laura as we embark upon the next phase of our growth strategy and ramp up to commercial production and beyond”

This appointment marks a significant step in Adriatic Metals’ ongoing evolution, underscoring its dedication to excellence and innovation in the mining sector.
