Greatland Gold plc, a precious and base metals exploration and development company, has announced that its new CEO, Shaun Day, commenced his role at the company on 8 February 2021.
As announced on 15 December 2020, Shaun Day succeeds Gervaise Heddle, who will remain on the Board and part of the Executive team until 12 March 2021 to ensure a smooth transition. Shaun Day is a seasoned industry executive with over 20 years of experience in leadership positions across established mining and infrastructure, investment banking and international accounting firms. He has extensive experience in capital markets with a track record of leading successful transactions including M&A of publicly listed companies, farm-in agreements and raising capital.
Day, CEO of Greatland Gold plc, said: "I join Greatland at a very exciting time for the business and with a strong platform in place to drive further growth. Greatland will continue to progress its core strategy – advancing Havieron while pursuing value from our other exploration targets with tier-one potential. Beyond this, I intend to apply my experience from growing major mining companies to oversee the development of Havieron and to scale-up the wider business.
"2021 is set to be an exciting year for Greatland as we embark on multiple exploration campaigns in the Paterson province. Havieron continues to evolve and we are confident that it will further expand in scale as Newcrest undertakes its extensive growth drilling programme over the next 6 months, with a view towards potential commencement of mining operations within three years. In addition, we are preparing the imminent launch of the 2021 exploration programme for the Juri joint venture, which will test multiple high priority targets, as we finalise plans to conduct further exploration across our 100% owned targets in the highly prospective Paterson region.
"There is significant opportunity ahead of us and I am looking forward to creating further value for shareholders."
