Mike has a blend of technical and commercial skills gained over 30 years as a mining & exploration geologist and as a resources banker which culminated in various leading corporate roles discovering, developing and operating gold and base metals projects and mines.
His industry experience encompasses mineral exploration, mining, processing, sustainability and marketing. A core strength is his ability to ‘bridge’ the gap between technical and financial considerations to build businesses. He has recent experience in the commercialisation of specialty ‘non-commodity’ materials such as tantalum, graphite, REEs, and mineral sands - all essential to the energy transformation underway. Copper, nickel and cobalt are commodities – and Helix provides an exciting opportunity to remain involved in these essential ‘energy metals’.
