Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) has appointed mining and chemical engineer Stewart Howe as a non-executive director.

Howe has considerable senior management experience in the global lead-zinc industry.

The appointment has been made as part of the company’s continuing evolution to ensure the best available skills are employed as the Abra Base Metals Project in WA moves through the development phase and into production.

Chairman Adrian Byass said: “Stewart has unique experience in the lead/zinc industry including knowledge of customers, smelting industry dynamics and strategic counterparts.

“We believe those capabilities round out our board’s experience as Abra continues construction and moves into production.”

Previous experience

Howe's experience includes six years as Zinifex Limited chief development officer, which at the time was one of the world’s largest miners and smelters of lead-zinc with assets on three continents.

During his tenure at Zinifex, Howe oversaw some of the most significant transactions in the global lead-zinc industry, including the spin-off of Zinifex’s smelters to create Nyrstar NV and restarting development of the Dugald River Mine.

Prior to Zinifex, Howe spent 23 years at BP in various executive and management roles.


Howe has a Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical), Master of Engineering (Mining) and a Master of Applied Finance.

He is also a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and fellow and chartered professional of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
