Taurus Gold Claims Industry Experience as the Catalyst for Their Exponential Growth, in African Business Review

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2012) - Although Taurus Gold Limited has only been in existence for little over year, the wealth of experience and knowledge that its workforce boasts -- particularly in its senior management team -- has seen it enjoy huge success. The company has a workforce of 129 employees, but this rises to 300 if you count temporary, associated and contracted staff.

Gordon Thompson, the Chief Executive Officer of Taurus Gold, looks to employ people who are brimming with industry experience: "I hire the best skills that I can find and I pay for them," he says. "We pay on average about 10 percent ahead of the market. We have managed to put together what I believe to be one of the finest, exploring and mine development teams around," cites Thompson.

Thompson himself is a mine engineer by trade and has enjoyed numerous successes in his specialism over the years. The highly respected African explorer, Helen Pein, who has been responsible for finding diamond, gold and titanium mines, is also involved with Taurus. The company's Chief Operating Officer, Walter Shamu, is again a talented mining engineer and also developed a number of mines and Michelle Jenkins, the Chief Financial Officer is both a trained geologist and qualified chartered accountant.
