Rössing Uranium Limited has appointed Werner Duvenhage as their Managing Director effective from mid-August.
Duvenhage joins Rössing Uranium from Langer Heinrich Uranium where he has been holding the same position since 2010.
During his time at Langer Heinrich, he gained experience across all aspects of construction, commissioning and operations.
He is also the current President of the Chamber of Mines of Namibia, and previously held the position of Chairman of the Uranium Stewardship Committee.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and an honours degree in Financial Management.
In a press statement the company said Duvenhage’s experience in the national uranium industry, his strategic focus and his demonstrated approach to safety and leadership in his previous roles makes him an ideal candidate to take over the leadership of Rössing Uranium Limited.
According to the company the current MD Chris Salisbury will remain in the Managing Director’s role until after Duvenhage’s commencement and until a comprehensive handover has been completed.
