Vale's Manitoba Operations have a new acting general manager of mining and milling following the departure of former general manager of mining and milling Stu Waring, whose last day on the job came earlier this month after he accepted a promotion to the company's Sudbury operations.
"Stu [Waring] has accepted a promotion to our Sudbury Operations where he will be the General Manager of Mines and Mills," wrote Ryan Land, manager of corporate affairs for Vale's Manitoba Operations in an e-mail to the Thompson Citizen. "In the interim until we name a permanent replacement, Warren Brass, Manager of our T-1 Mine, will serve as Acting GM for Mining and Milling."
Land said Waring had done much to secure Thompson's long-term mining and milling future and that he would be missed.
"We know that he will have a lot to offer our Ontario Operations," wrote Land. "It is precisely because he feels Thompson is sustainable, the transition planning for 2015 is in hand, and our culture of SafeProduction continues to move us positively towards our goal of Zero Harm that he felt that he could take on the next challenge. Those that know him know this was a significant decision, and they also know that he will be spending as much of his summer and vacation as possible with his family and at his cottage, right here in the north."
The Citizen attempted to set up an interview with Waring through Vale's Manitoba Operations but he has yet to respond.
