Chief Operating Officer
Grant has 20+ years experience in the mining industry, including underground contract mining, production roles, work in the mining software sector, and has been consulting internationally for the past 12 years. Grant has expertise in project valuation and management, ore reserve estimation, mine planning in both underground and open pit realms.
Grant’s project experience ranges from small-scale narrow-vein deposits through to large-scale massive sub-level open stopes and block caving; from the cost constraints of nickel/ gold to the ventilation issues of underground uranium and high-altitude mining. He has built mining process models and has trained engineers and geologists in the breakdown of technical processes and the application of software.
Grant has completed a Masters in Mineral Economics where he has developed exhaustive financial models, included quantifying the Mineral Resource Rent Tax in Australian iron ore, applying the Chilean fiscal regime to copper mining projects and predicting share value accretion from simulated, multiple-asset addition, decision trees for investment funds. His most recent economic endeavour involves optimising project sizing using variable discount rate financial models.
