Trevali Mining Corp. said Oct. 12 that it overhauled its board with new directors and chairman appointments after Catherine Gignac, David Huberman and David Korbin resigned from the company's board, effective Oct. 11.
Jessica McDonald, Russell Ball and Dan Isserow were added to Trevali's board to fill the posts of the outgoing directors, while director Mike Hoffman was appointed chairman to replace Huberman.
McDonald recently served as president and CEO of BC Hydro and Power Authority, Ball is CFO at Goldcorp Inc. and Isserow is co-founder, president and CFO of Silica Ventures.
As a result of the appointments, Trevali's now board comprises eight members, five of which are independent.
"I look forward to working with our newly constituted board as we continue to execute on our strategic plan following the recent acquisition of the Rosh Pinah and Perkoa zinc mines," Trevali President and CEO Mark Cruise said.
Trevali outlined plans in March to acquire certain assets from Glencore for about US$400 million, including stakes in the Rosh Pinah zinc mine in Namibia and the Perkoa zinc mine in Burkina Faso.
