Directors


Mr Alex Mackenzie

Executive Chairman

Alex graduated as a chartered accountant in 1971 and for many years worked at Price Waterhouse concentrating on the mining sector.

From 1985 he has been a consultant to the mining industry and has held directorships in a number of mining companies operating in Senegal, Ghana, Solomon Islands, Ecuador, Brazil and Australia. Since 1993 he has worked predominantly in Senegal promoting and developing the country's mineral resource industry. He discovered the potential of the Sabodala gold project and the Grand Cote mineral sands project in Senegal and has worked in conjunction with Mineral Deposits Ltd to bring these world class projects to fruition.

As a consequence of this work, he has established a strong relationship with the Government of Senegal.

Alex was the founder of Bassari and has been the Senegal Project Manager since Bassari listed on the ASX in 2008.

He was appointed a Director of Bassari Resources Limited on 12 April 2013.
