Change of Director of Operations at Almas
ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aura Minerals Inc. (TSX: ORA) (B3: AURA33) (OTCQX: ORAAF) (“Aura” or the “Company”), announces to the market recent changes in the leadership and management structure of its subsidiary, Aura Almas S.A. (“Almas” or “Aura Almas”), following the departure of Ms. Andréia Nunes from the position of Director of Operations at Aura Almas.
Gabriel Sapucaia, currently the Processing Plant Manager at Almas, will assume the position of Director of Operations at Almas. With significant experience in the mining sector, having worked for companies like Equinox and Yamana Gold, Gabriel joined Almas in August 2022. Since then, he has been directly involved in the construction process of the Almas Unit and its ramp-up, which occurred in record time, becoming a significant market benchmark. It is noteworthy that in less than a year of operation, Almas is already operating above the expected capacity.
The transition process will take place over a 30-day period, during which Andréia will work alongside Gabriel to ensure continuity and operational efficiency at the Almas Unit.
Aura thanks Andréia for her significant contributions during her tenure with Almas, especially for leading the construction and start-up of Almas, the Company’s first greenfield project, and wishes them both success in their new endeavors.
