Uranium Resources Names Ted Wilton as Vice President and Chief Geologist

Texas Business reports:  LEWISVILLE—Uranium Resources Inc, a uranium development and mining company with resources in New Mexico and Texas, appointed Dean T. (Ted) Wilton as vice president and chief geologist.

Wilton, who has over 40 years of experience in the mining industry, will be responsible for the development and implementation of exploration and delineation policies, systems, processes, procedures and controls related to both the exploration and development of existing properties as well as identifying potential new projects.

 “Ted’s extensive technical and managerial experience will be a great addition to the team as we advance our Los Finados project in Texas and prioritize opportunities within our 183,000 acres using the 19,000 drill logs we own in New Mexico,” said chief executive Don Ewigleben in a prepared statement. “He will be instrumental in guiding our exploratory, definition and development drilling activities and importantly, will be a strong contributor as we continue to evaluate opportunities to grow our asset base in New Mexico.”

Wilton worked in greenfield to advanced stage mineral exploration and development programs in a variety of regions from North America and Latin America to Australia and New Zealand. He participated in the discovery of a number of uranium and gold deposits which includes a variety of technical and leadership roles at Freeport McMoRan Inc., Kinross Gold Corporation, Neutron Energy Inc, Victoria Gold Corporation and most recently Klondex Mines Ltd.

Wilton graduated from New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and is a certified professional geologist.
