The move serves as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy to add more capability and depth to grow its integrated geoscience business.
Manager of Exploration, Marcus Willson stated: “Ian brings a wealth of international gold experience, particularly in Birimian and the epithermal space. In recent times, he has spent five years with IamGold heading up their regional exploration efforts in the Guiana Shield of South America.”
