Caledonia appoints Mufara

Caledonia Mining Corporation has tapped James Mufara as its chief operating officer, effective May 1.

Mufara was previously at Harmony Gold Mining where, as Regional General Manager, he headed a complex portfolio of operations consisting of five mines and 15,000 staff, mining 450,000 ounces of gold annually.

He has over 25 years of experience in the mining sector in southern Africa, including 13 years in leadership roles. His career has been primarily gold-focused, but also with exposure to nickel, copper and chrome mining.

Mufara’s experience includes deep-level underground mining and open-pit operations, which is relevant to the existing underground operation at Blanket mine and Caledonia’s development projects at Bilboes and Motapa, which will be open-pit.

CEO Mark Learmonth said: “I am delighted James will soon be starting his new role at Caledonia. He will be joining us at a pivotal moment in Caledonia’s development and I know the team will benefit from his wealth of experience. I very much look forward to working with him.”
