NEW YORK Woulfe Mining Corp. has named Hubert Marleau interim chief executive officer after the sudden departure of Brian Wesson in February.
Marleau previously served as a director of the Vancouver, British Columbia-based mining company, as well as a director of Palos Capital Corp. He has also worked at the executive level of investment banks such as Nesbitt Thomson Inc. and Levesque Beaubien Inc., in addition to his own firm Marleau, Lemire Inc.
Wesson resigned as president and chief executive officer last month, along with vice president of business administration Amelia Wesson (amm.com, Feb. 27).
The husband-and-wife team left Woulfe "in order to pursue other opportunities," the company said previously. No further details were available.
Woulfe could not be reached for comment.
Woulfes Sangdong tungsten and molybdenum project in South Korea is expected to start production by the fourth quarter of 2013.
