Western Australia-based mining company Equinox Resources has named highly experienced mining executive Jiahe “Gower” He as its new chief executive officer. 

He, who is also an expert in the iron ore, lithium, and battery metals industry, brings to the role over 20 years of experience in the resources sector. 

The new CEO recently held several senior positions at Mitsui, overseeing the company’s strategic trade ad investment plans across a variety of commodities, such as Iron Ore, Lithium, and other battery-related minerals. 

He managed stakeholder management at various levels within the mining industry, both domestically and internationally, and planned and executed division strategies for the Australian and Japanese headquarters. 

He also managed joint venture engagements including marketing and global partners networks, implemented company marketing, and operational strategies, oversaw joint ventures, and managed mergers & acquisitions, stakeholder management, and dispute resolutions. 

“The appointment of a highly experienced executive such as Gower as Chief Executive Officer will allow us to continue to work towards our strategic plans of developing our world-class Hamersley Iron Ore assets and to work in parallel on the exploration of our recently secured Canadian exploration areas,” said Robert Martin, Equinox’s chairman. 

“The board welcomes Gower and looks forward to working with him moving forward to achieve these goals,” Martin added.
