ioneer (ASX:INR)

ioneer (ASX:INR) is an ASX-listed lithium resource developer with a focus on the Rhyolite Ridge lithium-boron project in Nevada.

The project provides a substantial foundation for ioneer to become a responsible and profitable producer of the materials necessary for a sustainable future.

Rhyolite Ridge is a large, shallow lithium-boron deposit located close to existing infrastructure in southern Nevada, USA and owned 100% by ioneer.

Completed in October 2018, the Rhyolite Ridge Pre-Feasibility Study confirmed the project’s strong potential to become a cost-competitive, major producer of lithium carbonate and boric acid.

Board and Management

James D. Calaway
Non-Executive Chairman

Calaway is a respected business and civic leader residing in Houston, Texas, with considerable experience and success in building junior companies into successful commercial enterprises. He has played major roles in the development of both public and private companies engaged in lithium operations, oil and gas exploration and production, enterprise software and solar farm development.

Until his retirement in July 2016, Mr. Calaway served for eight years as non-executive Chairman of the Board of Orocobre Ltd, (ASX:ORE; TSX:ORL), helping lead the company from its earliest development to becoming a significant producer of lithium carbonate. With Orocobre being the only other lithium company with a significant exposure to boron, his Orocobre experience ideally suits him to help lead ioneer to become a leader in the lithium and borates businesses.
