Keith Jones in for George at GindalbieGindalbie Metals chairman George Jones will step down from the role in April - coinciding with the company officially launching its Karara iron ore project in the Mid West. He will be succeeded by Keith Jones, who is due to become national chairman of accounting firm Deloitte in June after holding the managing partner role in Perth for more than a decade. George Jones initially stepped down from the chairman role at Gindalbie in 2009 due to health issues, but resumed the chair the following year after its then chairman Geoff Wedlock died in a plane crash in West Africa. Mr Jones remains chairman of Sundance Resources, which is in long-running takeover negotiations with China’s Hanlong Mining.Dowling takes chair at SiriusFormer Ernst & Young Perth managing partner Jeff Dowling (pictured) has been appointed chairman of nickel explorer Sirius Resources. Mr Dowling will take over from current chairman Steve Lowe, who has opted to step aside and remain as a non-executive director.

Mr Dowling spent 40 years at Ernst & Young. Since retiring from the accounting firm, he has been appointed as a director of Atlas Iron and chairman of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.
