Favourite Movie Quote:
"Do it...."

Most often heard at work:
"What's that awful smell?"

I'd rather be:
Playing my drums

Steve has been professionally employed in the mining industry since 1988 in a variety of operational, management and mine planning roles. From January 1995, he worked as an independent consultant specialising in mine planning, software implementation and training. This 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 growing both ORELOGY's consulting business and also the in-house development of the EVOLUTION mine scheduling solution. This software and associated IP was subsequently acquired by mining software group Maptek in 2014.


 In February 2022 ORELOGY was acquired by idoba, part of the Perenti global mining services group. idoba are a new digital transformation service business, bringing together multiple technology and service offerings including management consulting, industrial mathematics, data science, artificial intelligence and product development. ORELOGY now provide idoba with crucial mining domain knowledge as part of their vision to co-create a better and more sustainable future, in mining and beyond.


Steve's role will be to guide ORELOGY through this new phase of the company, both integrating into the idoba ecosystem while continuing to drive and develop ORELOGY's core consulting business.
