He is a qualified Mining Engineer and has managed exploration teams, mineral processing teams in addition to holding CEO roles on both Toronto Stock Exchange and Australian Stock Exchange publicly traded companies.

Rob has been intimately involved in starting or reopening six mining operations, as well as leading major expansions at three other operations.
