Calum Morrison has been named vice president of corporate development, the Red Lake, Ontario exploration group said.
He has over 15 years' experience in the mining industry, having worked both in corporate development and investment banking roles.
"Over eighty percent of our district-scale Dixie property has yet to be explored, and Great Bear will remain focused on building upon its track record of exploration success through 2020 and 2021," said Chris Taylor, president and CEO at Great Bear.
"However, even at this early stage, interest in our discoveries has been very strong. We are very pleased to welcome Calum to our executive team as we are confident he will help us maximize shareholder benefit through the growth of strong relationships within our industry, as the company continues to advance the Dixie property."
Morrison has managed and led negotiations on numerous transactions worth over $5 billion in total; including acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures, and other strategic initiatives.
Most recently, he was a senior member of Teck Resources Ltd's (NYSE:TECK) corporate development team.
Shares nudged up 0.157% in Toronto to C$6.38.
