Battery Mineral Resources (BMR) announced the appointment of Julia B. Aspillaga Rodriguez to the company’s board of directors.

Aspillaga is a mining executive and partner of several mining exploration companies. She has worked in Chile and in several other Latin American countries since the 1980’s. At present, she is Managing Partner of Andeak Global Management, a firm providing mining exploration services to several international companies.

Aspillaga has participated in the discovery and development of several mining projects, including as a partner of Dr. David Lowell in the San Cristobal gold project, in Region II, Chile at the end of the 1980’s. In the 1990’s she was manager of Bema Gold in Chile.

For the past twenty two years, Aspillaga has participated as manager and/or management advisor for several international companies, including Mineral Resource Development (Great Britain), Yorkton Securities (Canada), Endeavour Financial (Canada), Galileo Minerals (Canada), and Global Hunter Corp (Canada).

Barlaro has also held senior operational roles with Codelco, Sociedad Química y Minera (SQM), Anglo American and SCM at mines in Chile as well as at Homestake Mining (a division of Barrick Gold) in Argentina.
