Royal Nickel CEO moves to Anglo American

The former Inco executives who are running Royal Nickel Corp. are losing one of their own, as the junior miner’s chief executive officer departs for a top job at one of the world’s largest mining companies, Anglo American.

Royal Nickel CEO Tyler Mitchelson, who worked for years at giant Canadian nickel miner Inco, has been recruited to help Anglo American CEO Mark Cutifani improve the company’s mining operations.
