Prospector News Editor’s Note: I was fortunate to work with and get to know Larry for the past few years prior to his illness. His contribution to our industry is immeasurable and his character first class. He had an ability to cheer people even in the darkest of moments. Our sympathies are extended to the staff at American Manganese and to Larry’s family…. MF

The Company’s board of directors has made the following appointments, which are effective as of today’s date:

  • Zarko Meseldzija, director and CTO, has been appointed interim CEO.
  • Shaheem Ali, CFO, has been appointed a director to fill the vacancy on the Board.

“Throughout his career, Larry demonstrated great perseverance and resolve,” says Mr. Hildebrand. “His efforts have given the Company an exciting opportunity at the forefront of an emerging green energy field. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish to express our condolences to the Reaugh family, and our gratitude for Larry’s hard work for so many years.” says Mr. Hildebrand.


“Having worked side-by-side with Larry for several years, I can confidently say that Larry was a great leader and mentor to many of us,” adds Mr. Meseldzija. “Under his direction, we have grown as a pioneer in the lithium-ion battery recycling industry and our team stands ready to ensure that his vision is carried out, and that the interests of the Company’s shareholders are looked after. Larry will be sincerely missed, and we extend our deepest condolences to the entire Reaugh family.”
