August 14. (MiningNamibia)-Anglo American's Skorpion Zinc mine has appointed Dave Bentley as the new general manager.
Bentley replaces Gerald Boting who has been appointed as project manager for the recently approved pre-feasibility study of the Gamsberg zinc project in South Africa, effective 1 September.
Boting served as the general manager since its commissioning in 2002, and has done remarkable work over the past six and a half years in building a world class operation and team. Under Boting's leadership, Skorpion Zinc received the Anglo American Chief Executive Officer’s Safety Award in 2007 as well as achieving design throughput capacity at the operation in that same year.
Bentley has been instrumental in establishing the discipline of continuous improvement within the zinc division.
John MacKenzie, CEO Zinc, commented, “I would like to thank Gerald for his enormous contribution and dedication to Skorpion Zinc and to the Rosh Pinah community, and to wish him well in this new exciting and challenging opportunity. I would also like to welcome Dave Bentley and look forward to working with him in the future.”
