On behalf of Namibia’s mining sector, the Chamber of Mines wishes to congratulate Mr Angula Kalili as the new 2nd Vice President of the Chamber of Mines of Namibia, who was elected at the AGM on 16 September 2020. The position fell vacant following the resignation of Mr. Irvinne Simataa due to management changes at Skorpion Zinc mine.
Mr Kalili, a mining engineer by profession, has over 20 years of working experience in the mining industry and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise to lead and drive the activities of the Chamber. After he graduated from Wits University in 2000, Mr. Kalili began his career at Navachb gold mine, followed by a combined working experience for seven years in Mali and Tanzania. He then returned to Namibia to work at Navachab and Trekkopje uranium mine.
In 2017, Mr. Kalili was appointed as Chief Operating Officer of Swakop Uranium, where he still holds office today. He also holds an MBA from the University of Liverpool, in the United Kingdom.
In expressing his gratitude to industry, Mr. Kalili said “the local and international mining industry remains a significant pillar of many economies, and its dynamic and continuously changing nature keeps me motivated to continue contributing to the industry wherever I am required. I am therefore honoured and humbled to have been elected to serve on the Executive Committee of the Chamber of Mines.”
The Chamber team welcomes Mr Kalili as part of the Executive Committee and looks forward to serving under his leadership and guidance.
