Tommie Gouws has been appointed the new managing director of the mine.

Mbako has been with the company for 10 years, and his new position will enable him to focus on more visionary and external aspects of the business. He continues to serve the Chamber of Mines as first vice president and the Namibia Uranium Association as a trustee and past president.

Gouws served as Orano Mining Namibia’s financial manager and has been with the company for the past 13 years. He will, however, continue to oversee and be responsible for the financial department.
