Fast Forward 15 seconds
In this episode, we chat to Alistair Waddell, President & CEO at Inflection Resources & Chairman at Headwater Gold. Both are junior explorers working across Australia and the US focusing on high-grade precious metals and copper assets. Alistair is an exploration geologist with a background working in Australia, South America, and North America. He is here today to talk about the exciting projects he is involved in and his experience travelling the world as a geologist.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Get out there and create your opportunities by knocking on doors. Get exposure to different deposit types, people, and jurisdictions. Young geologists need a bit of drive and perseverance and must not be afraid to take a leap of faith to gain experience. Working for junior miners as well as major mining companies really broadens your understanding. Inflection Resources has two main projects. Both mining gold and copper. The geologist Dr Douglas Haines was involved in putting together the exploration proposal for both projects. Many of the targets were on open ground, close to existing paved highways. They are currently working their way through thirty-five truly greenfield drilling targets in their NSW project. Drilling is also about to commence in their Croydon goldfields. An area that has produced spectacularly high grade finds in the past. Brownfield sites usually come with more risk than people realise. There is a trade-off. Alistair explains why he prefers to drill greenfield sites. Headwater Gold is focused on high-grade epithermal veins in the Great Basin area of Nevada. There are twelve projects to explore in Nevada.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Get out and travel before life gets more complicated with mortgages, families and whatnot. ´ ‘I recognise the self-driving geologists. They have that little bit of extra entrepreneurial attitude.’ ’I’m certainly very comfortable at taking a swing on greenfield targets that have the potential to deliver a large tier one.’ EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://inflectionresources.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/waddellalistair/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/inflectionaucu Email: [email protected] Headway Gold: https://headwatergold.com/boardofdirectors/ VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Conquering Every Mining Plant Challenge with Phil Antunes and Tony Reschkey of Simem Underground

    48:43

    In this episode, we chat with Phil Antunes and Tony Reschkey of Simem Underground Solutions. They provide custom mining solutions, designs, engineers, and manufactures site-ready Paste Backfill, Shotcrete, and Grout plants with pumping systems for on-surface and underground mining which plays an important role in the mining process. Phil is the technical director and Tony is the Vice President and they tell us more about the company and the importance of backfill solutions within mine production. KEY TAKEAWAYS Simem engineers work collaboratively, across all systems and go into the field to install what they build. They work fast. For example, for the Polaris mine, they had a massive cement rockfill plant with heating built and on its way to the Canadian Arctic, within 12 weeks. Several other examples of their complex projects are explained, in detail, in the podcast. They have experience of working in every environment, including the most extreme conditions. There is a comprehensive explanation of what the different types of backfill are, in the podcast. CAF gives you better strength. Dried-out tailings can be used in Paste Backfill. The strengths are reproducible and known. Underground backfill plants present many challenges, which are discussed in the podcast. Paste Backfill is costly to set up, but for flagship, long-term mines they are usually the way to go. No job is too challenging for Simem Underground. BEST MOMENTS ‘We don’t look at just Canada or just North America, we are truly global. ´ ‘We do the full engineering design of the plants.’ ‘The biggest differentiator we have is experience…30 years of mine plant building.’ ‘No one is pigeonholed…. We’ve intentionally made sure engineers are constantly in different areas.’ EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://simemug.com/ LinkedIn: Simem Underground Solutions | LinkedIn Email:  [email protected] [email protected] Phone: +1.604.288.2500   VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3 ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Easy to Finance and Scale Eco-friendly Potash Production Interview with Mike Ferguson

    32:52

    In this episode, we chat to Mike Ferguson, President, and CEO of Gensource Potash who are a Canada-based fertilizer development company, which is focused on developing resource opportunities with a specific focus on potash development. Mike is a professional engineer with over 25 years of experience in potash and uranium and is leading the development of this greenfield property and tells us all about the company and their Tugaske project and the sustainable production methods used.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Gensource Potash trades on the Toronto Venture Stock Exchange and the London AIM Market. Financing was very Europe-centric, so London is a good fit. Taking a modular approach enables them to start small and easily find finance, then ramp up as fast as the market allows. A single module of 250,000 tonnes production is a strong economic unit all by itself. These small modules can be run at 100% capacity from day one, which improves capital efficiencies. All product for the Saskatchewan facility is presold. A setup that virtually eliminates risk. Gensource is turning potash mining into something more akin to a manufacturing process. No salt tailings are created, which means no surface brine ponds. All of their power and heat are self-generated. They plan to become a true net-zero operation. Tugaske will be co-owned by Gensource and their partner Helm. The cyclical mining approach they use enables them to use 75% less freshwater per tonne of product. Working with Helm, Gensource is disrupting the market providing an alternative supply in a market where just five producer accounts for 75 to 80% of the supply. Gensource´s supply chain has been greatly simplified, which saves a lot of money. It also has an extremely low carbon footprint. A growing global population means demand for potash will continue to grow. Construction is due to start production, in 2024.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We are dedicated 100% to potash development. ´ ‘Gensource is about doing things differently.’ ‘We simply have no waste; we have no tailings.’ ‘We self-generate all of our own power and heat.’   EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://gensourcepotash.ca Twitter: https://twitter.com/gensourcepotash Email: [email protected] Call: 001 306 974 6414   VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3     ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Strong Drill Results from Southwestern US Silver Projects with Galen McNamara

    22:44

    In the episode, we chat to Galen McNamara, CEO of Summa Silver Corp that is a TSX-listed explorer focusing on developing the Hughes Property in the prolific Tonopah district of Nevada. They have also commenced drilling at Mogollon, New Mexico Galen is a geologist by trade and has over 15 years of experience in discovery and capital markets. Apart from heading up Summa Silver, he also sits on a few different boards. In this episode, he talks about both projects, the progress they have made and gives us an update on the current silver market.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Summa Silver is a new silver exploration company that focuses on the Southwestern US. They have two historic properties that have not been explored using modern technology. At the Tonopah, Nevada project they are getting grades above one thousand grammes per tonne on multiple targets. The best hole at Tonopah is 4408 grammes per tonne silver equivalent over 2.8 meters. They are about to start drilling at the New Mexico Mogollon project. Currently, between 60 and 70% of silver is used for industrial purposes. In the future, that percentage will rise sharply as demand from the electric car industry grows. Good silver assets are hard to find, so servicing that demand is going to be hard. Another reason prices are likely to rise. Despite doing a lot of drilling Summa Silver is still quite well-financed- The outlook for the silver market for 2022 is good. In the podcast, Galen explains why. Many junior silver miners are undervalued at the moment.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Historically, in precious metal bull markets, silver outperforms gold. ´ ‘The demand for silver in a situation like that is gonna almost double from what it is today.’ ‘We are not trying to reinvent the wheel.’   EPISODE RESOURCES LinkedIn: https://ca.linkedin.com/in/galen-mcnamara-02a52911 Twitter: https://twitter.com/galenmcnamara?lang=en Summa Silver Twitter: https://twitter.com/SummaSilver?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor LinkedIn Summa Silver: https://ca.linkedin.com/company/summa-silver-corp   VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Exploiting Gold and Copper Resources in Safe Jurisdictions with Martin French

    25:38

    In this episode, we chat with Martin French, Executive Chairman of Chesterfield Resources. It is a mineral exploration company operating in Canada and Cyprus, focused on copper and gold and listed on the London Stock Exchange. Martin has over 30 years of experience in capital markets, investment banking and mining and has worked all over the world in Asia, South America and Africa and tells us the story of Chesterfield Resources.

You can get 10% off with the discount code DIGDEEP10 when registering at: https://minesandmoney.com/ So, listen to this podcast, get your tickets today and we will see you there...   KEY TAKEAWAYS Chesterfield Resources has just finished drilling at their Cyprus resource. Polymetal International, the gold specialists, backed them in November 2020. In July, they purchased a big copper exploration project in Labrador, Canada and partnered with Altius Minerals to explore it. Most big mining companies want to get exposed to copper and many are doing so by buying into exploration companies. The Canadian site is a sedimentary basin. Geology which typically results in good yields. There are already around 250 copper shows on the surface, so it is clearly heavily mineralised. Yet, due to it being isolated very little drilling has taken place, to date. Their first meeting with the Inuit First Nations Grand Chief, Etienne Rich went well. The Canadian brokers have responded well to their offering. Having Dr Neil O´Brien on board is paying dividends. He is well known and respected in the industry. Bottlenecks at the assay labs are causing problems. In Cyprus, exploration of the Limni South dumpsite is yielding good results, so they are looking to put together a gold oxide project. They plan to roll out IR programmes in London, then Toronto. Followed by a secondary listing in 2022.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We´ve now got two really good partners. So, for a small company, we´ve come a long way. ´ ‘It´s in a very very low-risk jurisdiction…. Also, Labrador is regarded as the best province in Canada for mining.’   EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://www.chesterfieldresourcesplc.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/chesterfield-resources-inc.

    Exploiting One of the World´s Richest Zinc Resources with Kerem Usenmez

    25:51

    In this episode, we chat with Kerem Usenmez, President and CEO of Metallum Resources who are a Zinc & Copper focused base metal resource company headquartered in Vancouver. They are involved in the mining and mineral development of base metals with interests in North and South America. Kerem has a geology background and a wide range of career experiences and is here today to talk about Metallum Resources, the progress they are making in this great mining jurisdiction and talk more about Zinc as a metal.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Metallum Resources is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchanges (MZN) Their flagship project is located near Thunder Bay, Ontario, which already has excellent road, rail, and port connections. They have about two million tonnes at 18% zinc, 1% copper, 34grams per tonne of silver and half a gramme per tonne of gold Their project has almost twice the world´s average percentage in copper richness terms and extremely rich zinc deposits. Using current prices, the EBITA numbers reach $80 million, per year. The team are experienced mine developers as well as explorers. Relationships with the main First Nations group and other communities are currently good. For zinc for the next 5 to 7 years, there will be a deficit. Plus, the demand for zinc-air batteries is growing rapidly. Potentially, creating an even bigger deficit. Metallum Resources are perfectly placed to take advantage of this demand gap.   BEST MOMENTS ‘It's an exciting time for mining, especially for zinc and copper. ´ ‘We have one of the highest-grade deposits, in the world, for zinc.’ ‘Very profitable because of the low CAPEX numbers and very very high-grade ore.’ ‘I think this is the right project, with the right commodities, at the right time.’   EPISODE RESOURCES Twitter: @metallumzinc LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/metallum-tsxv-mzn Facebook: @metallumzinc Instagram: https://instagram.com/metallumzinc?utm_medium=copy_link Website: https://www.metallumzinc.com/   VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3     ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Fast Progress for Inflection Resources and Headwater Gold with Alistair Waddell

    44:55

    In this episode, we chat to Alistair Waddell, President & CEO at Inflection Resources & Chairman at Headwater Gold. Both are junior explorers working across Australia and the US focusing on high-grade precious metals and copper assets. Alistair is an exploration geologist with a background working in Australia, South America, and North America. He is here today to talk about the exciting projects he is involved in and his experience travelling the world as a geologist.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Get out there and create your opportunities by knocking on doors. Get exposure to different deposit types, people, and jurisdictions. Young geologists need a bit of drive and perseverance and must not be afraid to take a leap of faith to gain experience. Working for junior miners as well as major mining companies really broadens your understanding. Inflection Resources has two main projects. Both mining gold and copper. The geologist Dr Douglas Haines was involved in putting together the exploration proposal for both projects. Many of the targets were on open ground, close to existing paved highways. They are currently working their way through thirty-five truly greenfield drilling targets in their NSW project. Drilling is also about to commence in their Croydon goldfields. An area that has produced spectacularly high grade finds in the past. Brownfield sites usually come with more risk than people realise. There is a trade-off. Alistair explains why he prefers to drill greenfield sites. Headwater Gold is focused on high-grade epithermal veins in the Great Basin area of Nevada. There are twelve projects to explore in Nevada.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Get out and travel before life gets more complicated with mortgages, families and whatnot. ´ ‘I recognise the self-driving geologists. They have that little bit of extra entrepreneurial attitude.’ ’I’m certainly very comfortable at taking a swing on greenfield targets that have the potential to deliver a large tier one.’ EPISODE RESOURCES Website: https://inflectionresources.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/waddellalistair/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/inflectionaucu Email: [email protected] Headway Gold: https://headwatergold.com/boardofdirectors/ VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

    Build Your Personal Brand and Be Genuine to Enjoy an Interesting Mining Career with Alex Atkins

    36:57

    In this episode we chat to Alex Atkins who is a mine engineer by background and now holds a number of non-executive directorship positions. We met a few years ago at a mining conference in Melbourne and I know how passionate she is about mining. She is on the podcast to talk about her passions in ESG, diversity and inclusion and digital transformation. We also talk about non-executive directorships and what you need to do if you’re looking for NED opportunities. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Being ready to pivot and use your skillset differently opens all kinds of doors. The mining industry is becoming more diverse and family friendly. Virtual working is now much more commonplace. Partly due to CoVid. ESG has become especially important for the mining industry and for those who invest in it. Genuine diversity creates a safe environment in which people are not afraid to speak up about issues quickly. Meaning that problems get solved fast. Know what your life purpose is and project that out. Being honest like that builds trust. Think about what you have to offer in terms of what is valuable, rare, imitable, and non-substitutable. Be commercial in your mindset. Don´t be too airy-fairy. Tie in details of actual business benefits to make your points. Try to deliver your message at a point when people are ready to hear it. APIs are a great way to join data and digital solutions up to solve many of the industry´s biggest problems. When it comes to NEDs, usually the company comes to you. For that to happen you need a strong personal brand. Write papers, mentor, speak publicly and volunteer to build your brand. Only join a board where you can be authentically you. Being on several boards enables you to be involved in a wide range of projects. Listen carefully and be ready to make your points succinctly.   BEST MOMENTS ‘I found my way back into the mining industry through consulting. ´ ‘I used what was rare about me, what was valuable about me to influence others.’ ‘Being on boards feels entrepreneurial.’   EPISODE RESOURCES LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexatkins/ Email: [email protected]   RECOMMENDED READING: Working Backwards by Colin Bryar & Bill Carr - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Working-Backwards-Insights-Stories-Secrets/dp/B08KSDMDDV/ Range by David Epstein - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Range-Generalists-Triumph-Specialized-World/dp/B07PCS26MN/   VALUABLE RESOURCES mailto:[email protected] https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-tyson-3a26a68/ http://www.mining-international.org https://twitter.com/MiningConsult https://www.facebook.com/MiningInternational.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC69dGPS29lmakv-D7LWJg_Q?guided_help_flow=3     ABOUT THE HOST Rob Tyson is the Founder and Director of Mining International Ltd, a leading global recruitment and headhunting consultancy based in the UK specialising in all areas of mining across the globe from first world to third world countries from Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
