Former Goldcorp president and CEO Chuck Jeannes has been added to the board of directors for Tahoe Resources, effective Jan. 1.
Jeannes brings to Tahoe more than 30 years of mining industry experience. Most recently, as president and CEO of Goldcorp, he led company's development into one of the world's largest and most successful gold mining companies. Before assuming that role, he served as Goldcorp's executive vice-president of corporate development.
Jeannes joined Goldcorp in November 2006 following the company's merger with Glamis Gold Ltd., where he held a number of senior positions and played a key role in acquiring, financing and developing the Marlin, El Sauzal and Peñasquito mines.
Prior to joining Glamis, Jeannes served as vice-president of Placer Dome Inc. and also practised law for 11 years, specializing in mining transactions. Jeannes holds a BA degree from the University of Nevada (1980) and graduated from the University of Arizona College of Law with honours in 1983.
Tahoe Resources acquired Lake Shore gold last April, including its Timmins-area assets: Timmins West gold mine, located 18 kilometres west of Timmins, and the Bell Creek Complex, located 20 kilometres west of Timmins, which includes an underground mine and processing facility.
