U3O8 Corp, a Canadian-based uranium exploration company, has appointed John Ross as chief financial officer.
Ross is a chartered accountant with over 25 years of experience in the financial management of Canadian publicly listed exploration and mining companies operating in South America, Africa and Canada. Previously, he served as CFO of Colossus Minerals, an advanced explorer in Brazil; Cronus Resources, a gold explorer in Mexico, recently amalgamated with Continental Gold; FNX Mining Company, a nickel and precious metal producer in the Sudbury Basin; and IAMGold Corp, a gold producer with operations in Africa and exploration in Ecuador, Brazil and Argentina. He started his career in the mining industry at Rio Algom. Ross was instrumental in FNX Mining’s transition from an exploration to a development company and he contributed to IAMGold’s development into an intermediate gold producer. He also implemented IAMGold’s decision to convert its cash to gold immediately prior to the sustained increase in the gold price.
U3O8 thanks Carmelo Marrelli for his contribution as CFO and helping the company progress from inception to become an advanced exploration company.
