Gowest Gold Ltd. is saddened to announce the recent passing of Gregory ‘Greg’ Hart, the company’s previous Mine Manger.
Mr. Hart died in Timmins, Ontario on August 29th in his 61st year.
Mr. Hart joined the Gowest team as Mine Manager in September 2017, bringing his over 38 years of direct experience in leading mining and construction activities to fortify the foundation for the development of the Bradshaw gold project.
Prior to that, he had been Underground Manager and Manager of Operations for Goldcorp’s Porcupine Gold Mine in Timmins, as well as VP, Operations with Dumas Contracting.
Gowest Chairman, C. Fraser Elliott, said: “This has been an extremely sad day for all of us at Gowest as we have lost a friend, colleague as well as a valuable member of our team. During his brief four years with us, Greg provided not only exceptional technical expertise and leadership in advancing our flagship Bradshaw gold deposit towards production, but also a dedication and work ethic that have been so important to our development. With our new and highly experienced mining leadership in place as announced last week, we look forward to honouring his clearly expressed faith in Bradshaw and to continuing his good work. On behalf of the Gowest family and our Board, our condolences go out to his family and to his many other friends.”
