London, England — MININGREVIEW.COM — 28 July 2010 – Colin Bird is to step down as CEO of Jubilee Platinum and will be replaced by Leon Coetzer, currently the platinum miner’s MD of smelting and refining.
A statement issued here said the resignation of Bird, who would become non-executive chairman, was part of a number of management changes at the company. These included the resignation of current chairman Malcolm Burne and the appointment of Eduard Victor as finance director in the place of Andrew Sarosi, who would continue as an executive director.
Said Bird on his resignation:“Following the company’s successful acquisition of Braemore Resources and the focus on commercialisation of ConRoast technology, it is appropriate and timely that I step down as CEO.”
Jubilee Platinum bought Braemore Resources, which owns the ConRoast facilities, earlier in the year.
