Chaarat Gold CEO Artem Volynets joins the podcast this week for a feature interview with acting editor-in-chief Trish Saywell. Volynets discusses the challenges, strategies and opportunities of mining in the former Soviet Union.Artem Volynets joined Chaarat Gold as a non-executive director in March 2018 and is now the company’s CEO. He made a name for himself as the CEO of Russia’s En+ Group from December 2010 until June 2013, where he implemented strategies to make the group a global leader in mining, metallurgy and energy. Prior to that, he was senior vice-president of strategy at Sibeian-Urals Aluminium Co. (Sual), and played a role in the US$20 billion, three-way merger of Sual, Rusal and Glencore’s aluminum assets to create UC Rusal, where he worked as deputy CEO and director for corporate strategy. Volynets also helped orchestrate UC Rusal’s US$2-billion initial public offering on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. He left the En+ Group about six years ago and started looking for opportunities in the fragmented gold sector, consolidating small, typically privately held companies in Russia and other countries in Central Asia.
