Colorado-based Rare Element Resources has appointed Brent Berg as president and chief executive officer. He succeeds Randall J. Scott who is retiring after 10 years at the helm.
Berg has over 25 years of experience in the minerals industry, including 16 years in mine management roles and over 11 years working for in-situ recovery operations.
He most recently held the general manager role at Florence Copper, where he was responsible for leading the successful completion of a production test facility for in-situ copper recovery.
“Brent is a proven mining professional with extensive experience in the resource sector, including many years developing and operating mining projects in the great state of Wyoming,” said Chairman Gerald Grandey.
Rare Element’s primary focus is advancing the Bear Lodge Critical Rare Earth Project in northeast Wyoming.
