 Debswana, De Beers’ Botswana joint venture, has appointed Jwaneng mine chief Albert Milton as managing director.

Milton will take up the position on December 1, succeeding Balisi Bonyongo, who is retiring, De Beers said Wednesday. Bonyongo will remain at Debswana as a consultant for three months, the miner added.

Milton has worked at Debswana for more than 25 years, and has been general manager of the Jwaneng asset in Botswana since 2013. He has held management positions at a number of other De Beers projects, including the Orapa, Venetia, Letlhakane and Damtshaa mines.

De Beers and the Botswana government each own half of Debswana, which contributed 68% of De Beers’ production in the first nine months of 2018.

“Albert will be taking all his many years of outstanding experience in the organization to lead Debswana in its next chapter,” said Bruce Cleaver, CEO of De Beers and chairman of Debswana. “There are very exciting times ahead for Debswana, with a huge [number] of opportunities on the horizon, and I believe Albert is the ideal candidate to take the business forward and maximize its potential.”
