DRA Mineral Projects

Angus Fynes-Clinton has been appointed managing director for DRA Mineral Projects, replacing Leon Uys, who remains CEO of the DRA Group of companies.

The new appointment is the result of the DRA Group’s drive for globalisation and will free up key members of senior management to focus on expanding international operations. While the company already maintains a large footprint in Africa, its aim is to globalise the successful DRA brand.

As a part of the group’s growth initiatives the African business has been re-structured through the creation of DRA Mining which will work with DRA Mineral Projects and Minopex to form a complete mining solution.

Angus has an extensive track record with DRA having worked for 15 years in the company’s EC&I department as project engineer, manager and eventually as director. He prides himself for having gotten his hands dirty on a number of major projects all over the world including Snap Lake and Victor diamond projects in Canada, the Alrosa diamond project in Russia, coal DMS plants in China and Indonesia as well as a number of projects closer to home such as Twistdraai, Marikana and Western Plats.

Says Fynes-Clinton, "DRA Mineral Projects has an excellent team of engineers capable of designing, managing and constructing fit-for-purpose mineral processing plants. My aim as the company’s new MD is to retain its distinctive capabilities, improve on them where necessary and empower the company to deliver superior, innovative engineering projects to the mining industry."
