Case Study: VP Exploration – Africa

To ensure its optimal position in a rapidly changing market, a gold major retained Stratum to recruit a VP of Exploration for their African assets with the goal of building exploration capacity on the continent.

It was an opportunity for the successful candidate to put their mark on a growing exploration pipeline in a company with an exceptionally strong executive team, exploring most Tier 1 assets, supported by the most robust balance sheet in the industry.

The mandate was to attract an individual with the credibility and capability to lead the Regional Exploration Team to discover an economically viable Tier 1 gold deposit that would significantly impact the company’s earnings and growth.

The incumbent would manage more than 100 employees with exploration projects in six countries and a regional exploration budget of 45 M USD.

The role encompassed brownfield, greenfield, and generative exploration, as well as working closely with the Mineral Resource Management team.
