A new day rises at Greatland Gold with the appointment of a new chief executive, Shaun Day, who will replace Gervaise Heddle in the role.

Day has filled various leadership positions across mining and infrastructure during the past 20 years, having served as chief financial officer for companies including Northern Star Resources, Sakari Resources, PTT Company, Straits Resources (now Aeris Resources) and Amcom Telecom.

He said he was joining Greatland at an exciting time for the business as it advanced the Havieron project in Western Australia.

“(The year of) 2021 is set to be an exciting year for Greatland as we embark on multiple exploration campaigns in the Paterson province,” Day said.

“Greatland will continue to progress its core strategy, advancing Havieron, while pursuing value from our other exploration targets with Tier 1 potential.

“Beyond this, I intend to apply my experience from growing major mining companies to oversee the development of Havieron and to scale-up the wider business.”

Heddle will remain on the Greatland Gold board until March 12 to ensure Day’s smooth transition into the position.
