Surefire Resources has announced that it has appointed a new CEO, effective immediately.

Jan De Jager has more than 25 years’ experience across operational, finance, commercial, strategy and business development roles in the mining sector and has held senior leadership roles in AVZ Minerals, Covalent Lithium, Roy Hill and Xstrata Nickel in Australia. 

Surefire Resources said that Mr De Jager has gained extensive experience in various greenfield and brownfield projects from scoping stage into production where he was intimately involved with deal structuring and project financing.

Surefire’s Executive Chairman, Vladimir Nikolaenko, said “The Board and I are delighted with the appointment of Mr De Jager and consider him to be a valuable addition to the Surefire team. He will greatly assist in aggressively progressing and advancing the company’s key vanadium projects at Victory Bore and Unaly Hill, Perenjori Iron Ore, its Yidby Gold discovery and Kooline Silver-Lead project.”

Mr De Jager said, “It is a privilege to be entrusted to lead Surefire as its next CEO and I look forward to the opportunity of driving the progression of Surefire to its full value and the realisation of substantial increase in value to its stakeholders from all of the company’s projects, particularly from its world class vanadium deposit during a period where the world seriously needs sustainable production of critical minerals more than ever before.”
