(Ecofin Agency) – The Misisi project hosts 3 million ounces of inferred mineral resources, 250 km from Bukavu in South Kivu. In recent weeks, its Canadian owner has formed a new team of managers to ensure its development.

The Canadian Avanti Gold announced on May 7 the appointment of Ian MacLean as new Managing Director. With more than 25 years of experience in the mining industry, he is now primarily responsible for the development of the Misisi gold project in the DRC.

Following the appointment of Ghanaian mining industry veteran Samuel Jonah as Chairman of the Board earlier this month, another well-known name in the African mining sector joins Avanti. Mr. MacLean spent 15 years in the management of B2Gold, a Canadian company active in the Fekola gold mines in Mali and Otjikoto in Namibia.

I am honored to accept the role of CEO of Avanti Gold. I look forward to working with Samuel Jonah and the rest of the Board, as well as the experienced technical team, to create shareholder value through exploration successes “, commented Ian MacLean.

The main mission of this new team should be the development of the Misisi project, through increasing resources. Located 250 kilometers south of Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province, the project hosts inferred mineral resources of 3 million ounces.
