Northern Gold Mining is shaking up its senior management as the Toronto-based junior miner moves toward production at its Golden Bear project in northeastern Ontario.
Martin Shefsky, the company’s interim president and CEO succeeds Nuno Brandolini as board chairman.
Eric Moeller, a company founder and an independent director, has been named the new president-CEO and will remain on the board as an executive director.
“I want to thank Mr. Brandolini for his service as chairman, and congratulate Mr. Moeller in his new role in leading the company as it transitions its flagship Garrison Property towards production,” said Shefsky in a June 9 statement.
Moeller, a professional geologist, is a principle with Nanoparticle Consultancy and has more than 35 years of experience in exploration, mine development and permitting, mine-mill management, reclamation, and international sales and product development.
Northern Gold’s main focus is the exploration and development of its properties at the Golden Bear Project in the Larder Lake Mining Division.
The company has a portfolio of advanced projects, including the Jonpol and Garrcon Deposits and the Buffonta Property located on its Garrison Property.
The company has submitted an advanced exploration mine closure plan to the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines to remove up to 150,000 tonne bulk sample from the Garrcon deposit, 100 kilometres east of Timmins.
