Mining company Critical Metals, which is developing the Molulu copper/cobalt mine, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has appointed Gordon Thompson as nonexecutive director and chairperson of the board’s technical committee as of April 1.

Thompson is COO at copper mining company Copper 360 and a nonexecutive director at Contango Holdings.

“His extensive industry experience and engineering background, including several years in technical consultancy and strategic planning, as well as direct technical and commercial work experience in mechanised surface – opencut – and shallow to ultradeep underground mining operations, will be an invaluable asset to Critical Metals,” the company says.

Thompson's previous management roles in the mining industry include being COO of Tiger Resources, CEO of Taurus Gold and COO of Central African Mining & Exploration.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Thompson set up and became a technical consultant at Gordon Thompson, a mining Investment consultant advising midtier investment funds seeking mining opportunities in West Africa.

“We are delighted to welcome Gordon as the chair of our technical committee and newest member of the board of Critical Metals. His deep understanding of the copper mining industry, and exceptional technical prowess and engineering background, bring a wealth of knowledge that will undoubtedly enrich our decision-making processes.

“Moreover, his extensive experience in the DRC at the CAMEC, Kipoi and Chemaf operations, coupled with his record of delivering results, will greatly strengthen our future strategic capabilities both in the DRC and regionally.

“Furthermore, Gordon has already visited the Molulu mine and has an early understanding of the first actions that need to begin in order to maximise its potential,” says Critical Metals CEO Russell Fryer.
