Trevali has been appointed Gerbrand van Heerden Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective June 1, 2018.
Gerbrand most recently served as Trevali’s Senior Vice President – Business Initiatives and Development.
He joined Trevali in 2017 following the Company’s acquisition of the Perkoa and Rosh Pinah mines.
Gerbrand is both a Chartered Accountant from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of South Africa and a Chartered Professional Accountant in British Columbia (CPABC) and has over 18 years of experience in various senior management roles in the mining industry.
He commenced his career with Deloitte in South Africa, after which he joined Metorex Limited, a listed mining company as Group Financial Controller in 2004.
Gerbrand’s appointment comes following the retirement of Anna Ladd-Kruger who served as Trevali’s CFO since 2011.
“His extensive base metals and finance experience will provide a solid foundation to the Company as it continues to evolve into a global, mid-tier miner,” said Dr. Mark Cruise, Trevali’s President and CEO.
Trevali is a zinc-focused, base metals company with four mines: the wholly-owned Santander mine in Peru, the wholly-owned Caribou mine in the Bathurst Mining Camp of northern New Brunswick, its 80 percent owned Rosh Pinah mine in Namibia and its 90 percent owned Perkoa mine in Burkina Faso.
