George Jones was chair of PCF Capital Group, Gindalbie Metals and Sundance Resources. Mr Jones initially stepped down as chair of Gindalbie in 2009 due to health issues, but resumed the chair in 2010 after its then chairman Geoff Wedlock died in a plane crash in West Africa. Mr Jones also resumed the chairmanship of Sundance at the same time, following the death of Mr Wedlock and the other Sundance directors. He was a non-executive chair of Minera Gold and Portman Mining. In September 2010, he was appointed as a strategic consultant to Centaurus Metals. Mr Jones has made substantial financial contributions to the Ear Science Institute of Australia, and the ESIA's new Subiaco centre was named the George Jones Family Centre in 2011. He is a board member of the Parkerville Children's Home and a supporter of the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre. Mr Jones was named Western Australia's Senior Australian of the Year 2012 for his work with charities and the not-for-profit sector, and was awarded the 2011 Gold Medal for WA by the Australian Institute of Company Directors in recognition of his role as a corporate leader, notably at the time of the Sundance Resources disaster.
