Platmin appoints new CEO

New Platmin
CEO Tom Dale
Johannesburg, South Africa — MININGREVIEW.COM — 27 October 2009 – Platmin Limited has announced the appointment of Tom Dale as the company’s CEO with effect from 1 December 2009.

This follows the announcement earlier this month that Ian Watson was retiring as the CEO and an executive director of Platmin.

Dale has had a long and successful career in the South African mining industry, and has held various senior positions, including managing director of Gencor’s gold division and of Gold Fields Limited. Subsequently he was CEO of Mopani Copper Mines in Zambia, and thereafter CEO of Sallies Limited. He holds a BSc (Honours) degree in Mining Engineering (University of Newcastle Upon Tyne) and an MBA (University of Witwatersrand).

Commenting on his appointment, Dale said: “Platmin is uniquely positioned with a large,  shallow resource base on the cusp of production. Taken to its full potential, it will be a very significant industry competitor, and should realise much value for shareholders. It is a privilege to join the Platmin team as it pursues that ambitious vision.”
