Aim- and NYSE-listed Caledonia Mining has announced that James Mufara has agreed to join the group as COO with effect from May 1, following the departure of Dana Roets from the business on February 29.

Mufara previously worked for Harmony Gold Mining Company, where, as regional GM, he headed a complex portfolio of operations consisting of five mines and 15 000 staff, mining 450 000 oz/y of gold, the company points out.

He has over 25 years of experience in the mining sector in Southern Africa, including 13 years in leadership roles.

His career has been primarily gold-focused, but also with exposure to nickel, copper and chrome mining.

His experience includes deep-level underground mining and openpit operations, which is relevant to the existing underground operation at Caledonia’s Blanket mine, in Zimbabwe, and the group’s development projects at Bilboes and Motapa which will be openpit.

Mufara holds a BSc in Mining Engineering and an MBA.

“I am delighted James will soon be starting his new role at Caledonia. He will be joining us at a pivotal moment in Caledonia’s development and I know the team will benefit from his wealth of experience. I very much look forward to working with him,” says CEO Mark Learmonth.

“I am excited that I will be joining Caledonia and look forward to working with the talented team to drive operational performance across the group's high-quality portfolio,” Mufara adds.
