Brazilian Nickel (BRN), a private UK company developing the Piauí nickel project in Brazil, has appointed Patrick Boitumelo as COO, André Simão as CFO and Jorge Tapia as project director.

Boitumelo joins BRN from Lundin Mining, where he was part of the executive leadership team and held the position of senior VP technical services and growth. He has previously held various senior positions at Vale, Rio Tinto and De Beers.

Simão brings more than 25 years of experience within the mining, technology and finance sectors, specialising in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, venture capital and private equity, and digital transformation.

Simão was CFO at Brazil-focused Ferrous Resources, which acquired, developed and operated distressed mining assets, and was later sold to Vale. More recently, he structured and negotiated more than $100-million in structured finance for developing and acquiring new mining and technology assets at SJK Capital and Genesis Mining, as CEO and CFO.

Tapia also has more than 25 years’ experience in managing small- and large-scale projects, overseeing engineering, construction, and maintenance programmes. Tapia was previously project manager for Antofagasta Minerals’ MLP INCO and Antucoya projects, in Chile, and for AngloGold Ashanti’s La Colosa project in Colombia.

Adrian Harvey has stepped down as the company’s CFO.  He will remain with BRN in his role as company secretary.
