Gold exploration success De Grey Mining has confirmed its expectation of becoming a producer by appointing mining engineer Glenn Jardine as its managing director (reports MiningNews).
Jardine's fixed remuneration will total A$362,500 per annum, with both Simon Lill and Andy Beckwith continuing in their roles as chairman and technical director respectively.
Jardine's experience includes being project manager and general manager of the Henty gold mine in Tasmania for Goldfields, project manager of the Emily Ann and Maggie Hays nickel mines, and general manager new business, COO and MD for Lion Ore Australia.
More recently he's been COO of Azure Minerals.
Jardine will start work at De Grey in May.
De Grey's recent Hemi discovery at its Mallina project in the Pilbara region is already seen as a mine in waiting.
Capital Markets firm Argonaut recently estimated the two main zones emerging at Hemi could contain about 1.9 million ounce of gold, with De Grey already having outlined 1.7Moz at other prospects it owns in the region.
