Chief Executive, Executive Director since 2020 / Gascoyne Resources
Richard Hay joined Barrick (then Plutonic Resources) in 1996 and in 1997 was appointed geological superintendent at the Darlot gold mine. He played an integral role in delineating a resource in excess of 2 million ounces at the Centenary discovery extending the mine life by more than 10 years. From late 2007, he held the position of general manager Yilgarn Shared Services and led the integration and operation of a suite of 8 functional areas supporting Barrick’s Plutonic, Darlot, Lawlers and Granny Smith mines from a centralised Perth base. In recent times, Mr Hay was involved with several ore purchase agreements reached with third parties to treat ore at Barrick processing facilities.
