Blue International Group, an integrated mining, energy, and infrastructure business focused on sub-Saharan Africa, has announced the appointment of Adam Clode as group Chief Operating Officer (COO).

In this newly created role, Adam will support the company’s evolution, moving away from a divisional structure to become more centralised and multi-functional, including optimising its processes and efficiency to ensure long-term shared value creation for all stakeholders. His immediate remit will include overseeing the continued turnaround of the Bogoso Prestea gold mine, located within the world-famous Ashanti Gold Belt in Ghana, and supporting the development team on development and acquisition of new projects. This includes the Bumbuna II Hydroelectric power project in Sierra Leone, which is targeted to commence construction in 1H22.

He has a good track record of developing resource projects from defined resource through to operations, across Africa, Asia, and Australia, within both the energy and mining sectors. This includes Deputy Project Manager for a platinum concentrator development in South Africa, Deputy Project Manager at RWE’s £850 million Pembroke Power Station in West Wales, Manager of Projects for African Minerals’ US$3 billion Tonkolili iron development in Sierra Leone, and General Manager of Projects for J Resources’ (Indonesia) gold portfolio. Adam has held Board positions as both Executive and Non-Executive Director. He graduated from the University of Western Australia with Honours and has a Master’s in Project Management.

Andrew Cavaghan, Group CEO and Executive Director of Blue, commented: "We welcome Adam into this newly formed role and are pleased to add another high-quality individual to the executive committee. Adam’s experience is highly relevant as we build an integrated mining, energy and infrastructure business in sub-Saharan Africa that seeks to achieve long-term, safe and sustainable returns for all stakeholders.”
