I am a geologist with over 20 year's experience working in mining (open pit and underground), resource evaluation / development and brownfield / greenfield exploration in Western Australia and West Africa. I’ve worked in a range of commodities and mineralisation styles including narrow vein high grade, stockwork, lateritic and BIF hosted gold, structurally-controlled base metals (lead-zinc), iron ore (DSO and magnetite) and graphite. I can produce JORC compliant resources and act as a Competent Person for gold, lead-zinc and iron ore of mineralisation.
My broad experience has seen me work closely with native title groups, landholders and government departments in Australia and West Africa, develop and manage budgets, and mentor co-workers building strong teams with a commitment to safe work practices.
