Tolga Kumova

Executive Chairman

Mr Kumova is a resource industry entrepreneur and corporate finance specialist with over 15 years’ experience in stockbroking, IPOs and corporate restructuring. Mr Kumova has raised over A$500 million for ASX-listed mining companies, from early-stage explorers through to companies at construction and operation-stage.

Mr Kumova was previously Managing Director and founding shareholder of Syrah Resources Limited (ASX: SYR), an ASX200 graphite producer. During his period of tenure at Syrah, he led the Company from delineation of the world-class Balama graphite deposit in Mozambique, through to offtake agreements with numerous globally recognised counterparties, and then to full funding for mine development.

The results of these activities generated significant returns for shareholders. Mr Kumova sees an opportunity to pursue a similar strategy again at Edleston, to define and develop a tier one asset that will meet some of the surging demand in the battery minerals supply chain, this time for nickel.
