Turner Mining Group added new members to its Utah mining team.

The team additions include several new hires with experience in mine engineering, planning, estimating, safety and operations, the company says.

“We have made investments to put the highest caliber team in place to perform contracts of longevity and complexity,” says Keaton Turner, founder and CEO of Turner Mining Group. “We are excited to continue building the runway to deliver the quality of work expected from a full-service provider.”

Bill Oglesby joined the team as director of planning and estimating. Oglesby brings 26 years of experience in large mining projects, Turner Mining Group says. Oglesby will oversee estimating, planning and on-site operations. His experience spans crushing, leach pad construction and expansion, drilling and blasting, tailings facilities, mechanical, structural and concrete, along with expertise from building new plants to closure and reclamation.

Austin Anstoetter was named director of operations at the company’s Utah team, bringing advanced project management and estimating skills coupled with knowledge of large civil construction and complex mining projects. Anstoetter has experience operating mine facilities from greenfield to closure and reclamation. In his new role, he will oversee the coordination of resources across mining projects.

Chris London is the company’s new safety manager. London is from Australia and brings more than 20 years of experience in the mining and oil and gas industries. He will oversee safety programs across several operations. London has knowledge of heavy mining equipment, pit management, hazard recognition, incident investigations, safety analysis and Mine Safety & Health Administration standards, according to Turner Mining Group.

Trista Vanderhoof joined the team as procurement and office manager. She brings nine years of experience in construction, field systems integration and mining. She will oversee procurement, assist with subcontractor management and estimating, coordinate field resources and manage the Utah office.

“These team members bring very specific expertise across different aspects of the mining sector, allowing us to grow to meet our client’s needs,” says Lennie Boteilho, senior vice president of mining at Turner Mining Group. “Today, we are better equipped to handle anything that comes our way.”
