Kiruna April 29, 2021
Copperstone Resources AB appoints Anna Tyni as the new President and CEO. She will take up her position on May 1, 2021. Anna Tyni was recruited to Copperstone in October 2020 as head of the operations in Kiruna with the overall responsibility for the preparations for the reopening of the Viscaria mine. As the Viscaria project now advances, it is natural to appoint a CEO with long industry experience, proven good leadership skills and local roots. She replaces Michael Mattsson, who takes on a new role as Head of Business development and remains on the company's management team and board.
“At this stage, it feels really good and very right to hand over to a person with solid industry experience. In less than a year, Anna has proven herself very competent and created a strong drive and commitment in the organization in Kiruna. Copperstone is entering an important phase with the work on the environmental permit application, and I will now have more time to devote to mineral exploration and M&A, which means that the timing of this change is optimal", says Michael Mattsson, CEO of Copperstone in a comment.
Anna Tyni has 20 years of experience from several leading positions within LKAB, primarily in enrichment, production and logistics.
“It feels very exciting and inspiring to take on this role and challenge. Above all, I am very excited to be a part of and lead a team that has a unique opportunity to reopen a mine in a modern and sustainable way, in my own hometown. We are happy and proud to be the first listed company in Kiruna and the first mining company based in the area. Our goal is to coexist with all the stakeholders in the area. We have the potential to create around 250 jobs and to become an important player and a reference object for the transition to an electrified and more sustainable society.”, says incoming CEO Anna Tyni in a comment.
