"Allied Nevada Gold announced that Randy Buffington will join the company as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer on February 4, 2013. In addition to managing all aspects of current operations at Hycroft, Randy will provide oversight to the technical services, metallurgy, permitting, engineering and construction teams."
I don't know where Mr. Buffington's last address was, or was to be, in CDE, but his life history included managing in different desert places. He'll like Winnemucca, I'll bet. It isn't the big city. Maybe he was already in Winnemucca with CDE. I don't know. Anyway, he sports a nice title to match his fine resume. Happy trails to him.
