New Gold Inc. (New Gold) has announced the departure of Cory Atiyeh, Executive Vice President, Operations, effective as of yesterday.
With the recently announced sale of the Mesquite mine and the sale of Peak mines earlier in the year, New Gold is repositioning itself as a leading, Canadian-focused intermediate producer with a simplified operational structure focused on two operating assets.
Over the coming months, Renaud Adams, President and CEO of the company, will work directly with the General Manager of Rainy River, Chuck Hennessey, and the General Manager of New Afton, John Ritter, to provide support and oversight for both operations, particularly at the Rainy River mine during this critical ramp-up period.
"The entire New Gold team would like to thank Cory for his significant contribution to the company over the past 12 years, and we wish him all the best with his future endeavours. On a personal note, I would like to thank him for his assistance during my transition as his knowledge, perspective and contribution have been invaluable," commented Renaud Adams, President and CEO.
He continued: "I am looking forward to working directly with our General Managers at Rainy River and New Afton as we execute on our strategic direction and create sustainable value for our shareholders."
