Burkina Faso – TSX-listed gold junior True Gold Mining has appointed Peter Hardie as the company’s new CFO, effective 2 November 2015, replacing Ryan Torvik.
Torvik, who has been with the company since the prefeasibility stage at Karma, is being replaced by Hardie who joins True Gold from Nevsun Resources, a dual-listed gold-copper-zinc company with a flagship mine in Eritrea, East Africa, where he served as Finance VP and as CFO, having led the finance team at Nevsun as it grew from a junior developer to a producer.
Hardie was involved in the financing, construction and mine start-up, operations, government negotiations, and led all areas of finance, including treasury systems and reporting.
Also fluent in French, Hardie has West African experience from when Nevsun built and operated the Tabakoto mine in Mali.
“We are excited to have Hardie join our strengthened team as CFO and we are delighted to be able to attract someone with his hands-on operational experience and skills to True Gold.
“As we transition into a gold producer, we feel it’s important to continue to build upon the operational and African mining experience, and French language skills, within the corporate team. Hardie will play a key role in achieving our goal of building a mid-tier producer,” says True Gold CEO Christian Milau.
