(Kitco News) - Pretium Resources (NYSE:PVG) announced Thursday that Richard O’Brien will take over as board chair following the retirement of Robert Quartermain, slated for the end of the year.

Previously O'Brien was president and CEO of Newmont Mining Corporation and president and CEO of Boart Longyear Limited.

“It has been a great personal privilege to have been involved with Pretivm from exploration through to its development as a profitable mid-tier gold producer,” Robert Quartermain, Executive Chairman of Pretium, said in a news release. "As incoming Chair, Richard brings a depth of understanding of the gold business that will be instrumental in helping the Board steward Pretivm to its next level of success for shareholders.”

Quartermain incorporated Pretium in 2010 and the Brucejack Mine went into production in 2017.
