Mercury Free Mining Appoints Mack as Managing Director


Mercury Free Mining (MFM) has hired Bernadette Mack as managing director, a new position at the nonprofit that aims to eliminate the use of mercury from the gold supply chain.

Mack previously served as executive director of the Women’s Jewelry Association. Her industry career spans over two decades.

MFM was founded by Toby Pomeroy, who remains its executive director.

“For years we’ve been working toward our vision of eradicating mercury use among artisanal and small-scale gold miners,” Pomeroy said in a statement. “With the discovery of the highly efficient Goldrop technology, we feel we’re on the cusp of seeing our vision become reality.”

The technology is currently being tested in projects in Colombia and Sierra Leone, Pomeroy said.
