Ecuador announces interim Mines Minister

Mining Journal Online, June 22, 2007

Ecuador`s president Rafael Correa has chosen Jorge Alban as the interim Minister of Energy and Mines until the new permanent minister is chosen, Pippa Jeffcock of Dynasty Mining told Mining Journal.

"There are two main contenders for the permanent position, Mauricio Davalos Minister in charge of coordinating Economic policy and production and Fander Falconi, National planning Secretary for Ecuador" she said.

Ms Jeffcock also added that the successful candidate would only be in the position for two months until the ministry was split into two separate units and a new minister "who, according to the government, will know about mining" is chosen.
