Mining stalwart joins AfriTin board

AIM-listed AfriTin Mining, a mining company with a portfolio of near production tin assets in Namibia and South Africa, has appointed mining stalwart Terence Philip Goodlace to the board as a non-executive director with immediate effect.

The company welcomes Goodlace’s appointment and the expertise in mining that he brings.

His mining career commenced in 1977, and has spanned more than 40 years. He spent the majority of his career at Gengold which merged with Gold Fields of South Africa to form Gold Fields in 1998 and he worked his way up from being a miner through to become the COO in 2008.

He has significant experience in leading underground and open pit operations in South Africa, Australia, Ghana and Peru. For five years during this time he was responsible for creating, implementing and facilitating the strategic and operational planning processes and outcomes for all Group operations. This included executive responsibility for group mineral resource management, environmental management and sustainable development.

He then spent three years as the CEO of Metorex and served on the Impala Platinum Holdings board for two years as an independent non-executive director and four and a half years as the CEO.

He is currently an independent non-executive director at Gold Fields and Kumba Iron Ore.

In 2017 he was appointed onto the South African Mining Extraction Research, Development and Innovation steering committee which has been set up to advance new mining technologies under the auspices of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research.

“I would like to join with my board of directors in welcoming Terence to the board of directors of AfriTin. Terence brings a wealth of experience to an already strong board, with a particular emphasis on mine development and management,” says CEO Anthony Viljoen.

“As the company continues its rapid transition from an exploration and development company into a full scale tin miner, Terence’s experience will be valuable in assisting the technical team in driving our objectives forward.”
