CBH Resources says it hopes to find a replacement for Rasp Mine boss Tony Davis by December.

Mr Davis spent 16 months as the general manager of the recently opened Rasp Mine before finishing on Friday.

He is set to take up work with a junior company, United Mining.

CBH Resources chief operating officer, Visko Sulicich, said the exit won’t have an impact on local operations.

“We’re sad to see him go but that’s life in the mining industry,” Mr Sulicich said. “We all move on.”

Mr Sulicich said the company would start looking for a replacement in the next few months and hoped to have a new boss by Christmas.

The $155 million zinc, lead and silver mine employs 160 people and is expected to have a life of more than 15 years.

Mr Davis held positions with Rio Tinto, Pasminco and Western Mining before taking up the role of CBH Resources’ GM in Cobar in January 2010.

Mr Davis was yesterday contacted for comment.
