Anglo American: New processing chief appointed

Comment on this story

ANGLO American has appointed former Lonmin executive Natascha Viljoen as head of processing. Viljoen “is responsible for looking at all of our processing operations around the world from a technical perspective”, spokesman Pranill Ramchander said yesterday. Viljoen had started work on Friday and reported to Tony O’Neill, Anglo’s technical director, Ramchander said. A recovery at Lonmin from a 2012 strike was led by Viljoen, the executive vice-president for processing, and Mark Munroe, the executive vice-president for mining. Both had resigned “to pursue new opportunities”, the platinum producer said on Monday. Lonmin named Johan Viljoen as chief operating officer to replace the two vacant roles. Natascha Viljoen previously worked at BHP Billiton. – Bloomberg
