Barrick executive to step down in latest shakeup at gold miner

Another Barrick Gold Corp. executive is leaving amid upheaval at the world’s largest gold producer.

Sybil Veenman, the miner’s senior vice-president and general counsel, will exit at the end of September.

She joins the exodus of Barrick veterans who have either been pushed out or decided to split since John Thornton became chairman in April and started cleaning house.
