Africa‘s fifth largest gold producer, African Barrick Gold (ABG), announced today that its executive director and CFO, Kevin Jennings, has given notice that he intends to leave the company.

ABG said that Jennings resigned in order to take up a similar role at another mining company, but that he would remain with ABG as part of the team overseeing the completion of the initial stages of the operational review.

The company announced in August 2012 that it was in talks with China National Gold regarding the sale of ABG, however in January 2013, the company confirmed that discussions fell through.

Jaco Maritz, currently ABG‘s vice president of finances, will assume Jennings day-to-day responsibilities.
