Having previously led production at Paladin Energy Ltd. and acted as a consultant to BHP Billiton plc, Rio Tinto and Marubeni Corp., Chalmers has decades worth of global uranium mining experience, the company said.

“Mark brings the suite of skills that we believe Energy Fuels needs to continue our growth and development into the future,” said Chairman J. Birks Bovaird in a statement.

Under the guidance of Antony, Energy Fuels went from a small uranium project developer into the largest uranium producer in the U.S. in 2017, the company said.

“We are well positioned to capitalize on increasing uranium prices and other opportunities in the future,” added Bovaird.

Shares in Tornto were unchanged at C$2.14.
