Toronto-listed Lundin Mining has appointed Jack Lundin as president with immediate effect.
Concurrently, Lundin has stepped down from the Canadian base metals company's board of directors.
"We are excited to welcome Jack to the management team of Lundin Mining," commented CEO Peter Rockandel.
"His experience in mine development, as well as recognised legacy, and years of natural resource technical and economic expertise is an excellent fit for the role. Jack's addition complements our recent senior technical hires and will further enhance the operational expertise across the Lundin Mining team."
Lundin has extensive experience in the natural resource industry gained through exposure with several Lundin Group companies. Most recently, he was CEO of Bluestone Resources, prior to which he was involved in the development of Lundin Gold's Fruta del Norte gold mine, in southern Ecuador, where he served as the project superintendent.
He began his career in the mining sector working prospecting jobs on various early-stage projects in Canada, Russia, Ireland and Portugal.
