Dual-listed Centamin, which operates the Sukari mine, in Egypt, has appointed Hendrik Faul as an independent nonexecutive director, effective July 1.
He will chair the new technical committee and become a member of the audit and risk, and the sustainability committees.
Faul has 30 years of mining industry experience across a range of commodities and jurisdictions. He is a qualified mining engineer.
Most recently, from 2013 to 2019, he was CEO of Anglo American’s Copper business, including the Los Bronces and Collahuasi mines, in Chile, and the Quellaveco greenfield project, in Peru.
“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Hennie as a member of the Centamin board. I am confident he will provide an invaluable contribution to our refreshed board.
"His recent experience as CEO of Anglo American Copper in particular, running two of the world’s largest openpit mines, means that he is ideally suited to take on the role of chairperson of our newly established technical committee,” comments Centamin deputy chairperson Jim Rutherford.
