A competent leadership team is one of the must ingredients required for becoming a successful organisation. A strong leadership team takes prudent decisions to ensure that the business achieves its targets, creates value for its shareholders and taps new opportunities.
In the metals and mining space, while many explorers pursue opportunities of different scales, a technical and commercially experienced board and management team is required to provide expert guidance and manoeuvre the exploration and strategic activities.
QX Resources: Pursuing the Golden Future
QX Resources Limited (ASX: QXR) is one such company that boasts of a skilled and qualified leadership team, taking prudent decisions.
Thanks to the leaders’ acumen and their efficient management of the exploration and development endeavours, strategies and implementation appear to be on the same wavelength for the Queensland-focused gold explorer.

It is to be noted that the Drummond Basin in Central Queensland boasts of >6.5moz gold endowment as well as a long history of mining. Additionally, QXR holds the right to earn up to 90% ownership.
Interestingly, QXR is managed by four directors who have been successfully guiding the Company through its strategic advancements. They hold a proven track record of exploration plus project development/operations in Australia and worldwide.
