Toronto-listed Copper Mountain Mining has appointed Patrick Merrin as president and CEO with effect from April 24.

Merrin has extensive experience in the mining industry including ten years of senior executive operational and technical experience. His leadership positions focused on North American mines and projects, including most recently acting senior VP of Canadian Operations at Newcrest Mining. He was previously COO, mining and interim CEO at Dominion Diamonds, senior VP Canadian Operations at Goldcorp and VP Arizona Business Unit at Hudbay Minerals.

"His [Merrin’s] extensive operational experience, particularly in Canada and most recently at Newcrest, will be instrumental to the company as we focus on operational excellence, exploration, and growth at Copper Mountain. We are looking forward to future value creation under Pat's leadership,” said chairperson Ed Dowling.

Merrin succeeds Gil Clausen, who will retire effective May 1.
