 DENVER, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyprus Amax Minerals Company (NYSE: CYM) today named David H. Watkins, a prominent mining executive, as Senior Vice President Exploration. The appointment of Watkins, 49, will be effective Feb. 1, 1994. He will report to Milton H. Ward, Cyprus Amax Minerals Company chairman, president, and chief executive officer.

Metall Mining and Minnova merged in 1993 and now holds precious and base metals and industrial minerals interests throughout the world.
 Cyprus Amax Chairman Ward said, "David has extensive international experience in finding, acquiring, and developing significant properties. This experience, particularly in regions of great interest to Cyprus Amax, makes him an exceptional addition to our team at a time when we are striving to significantly expand our worldwide resource base."
