Reinson tapped as First Mining Gold COO

Canadian producer First Mining Gold has selected industry veteran Jeff Reinson as its incoming chief operating officer effective March 28.

Reinson, with more than 25 years of experience in project development and engineering leadership, was most recently interim general manager of Greece operations for Eldorado Gold. Prior to that, he served as vice president of project development for Bluestone Resources and Goldcorp, where he was project director of the Peñasquito mine in Mexico.
