- Bachelor of Engineering (Mining), F.AusIMM
Steve has been professionally employed in the mining industry since 1988 in a variety of operational, management and mine planning roles. Since January 1995, he worked as an independent consultant specialising in mine planning, software implementation and training. This has afforded Steve an extensive range of experience in both mining location (Australia, UK, USA, Europe, South America, Africa, South East Asia and the CIS) and commodity (gold and PGM’s, base metals, iron ore, industrial minerals and diamonds).
In early 2005, Steve co-founded a new consulting practice in Perth, Australia called ORELOGY, with the key objective of supplying specialised mine planning services to the mining industry worldwide. During this period Steve was pivotal in both growing the ORELOGY's consulting business and also the in-house development of the EVOLUTION mine scheduling solution. When the software and IP was acquired by Maptek in 2014, Steve was seconded to Maptek for 3 years as the person responsible for the continued development of Evolution under the Maptek banner.
In November 2017 he returned to ORELOGY and once again assumed the position of Managing Director. He brings a wealth of new experience back to this fundamental role and is ideally placed to guide ORELOGY forward into the future.
