There are some new faces to New Gold’s administration team.

The company has hired Yohann Bouchard as its new Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer.

Bouchard held a similar position with Yamana Gold, which was recently bought out.

Bouchard also has held key operating and technical positions with Primero Mining Corporation, IAMGOLD Corporation, Breakwater Resources Ltd. and Cambior Inc. over his 25-year mining career.

Two other former employees of Yamana come to New Gold’s technical leadership team.

Luke Buchanan becomes Vice-President of Technical Services, while Jean-François Ravenelle is the new Vice-President of Geology.

Buchanan was Yamana’s Senior Vice President of Technical Services at Yamana.

He also worked for Newmont Corporation, AMC Consultants and Primero Mining Corporation both in Australia and Canada over the last 18 years.

Ravenelle most recently worked at BHP Group Limited as its Structural Geology Practice Lead for Metals Exploration after serving as Director of Geology at Yamana.

New Gold also promoted Ankit Shah to Executive Vice President of Strategy and Business Development.

Shah joined the company in 2010 and served as Vice-President of Strategy and Business Development since September 2019.

“Our mission of being a leading intermediate gold and copper producer remains unchanged. With the additional bench strength and experience, I am confident our team can help lead our operations and our Company towards our goal of increased production at lower costs, delivering sustained free cash flow over the coming years,” states Patrick Godin, President and Chief Executive Officer.
