— Current

Responsible for all Redpath Mining Operations in Zambia. This consisted of 4 Projects / Contracts. 2 were underground development contracts. One was raiseboring a 8.4m dia ventilation shaft in 4 stages using the worlds biggest machine the Redbore 100. The other Project was also raise boring a main shaft in 4 satges. The last 500m section was completed during my term. This project also had undefground development to get to the shaft bottom position from where the raisebore head would be positioned to raisebore the bottom, and last, 500m section. All the preparation work was completed to fully equip the shaft for conveying men and materials.
Responsibilities included running the entire business, improving safety (which was a phenomonal success), implementing standards and controls. Was successful in all KPI's except that the Copper Market was in distress leading to our Canadian Executives deciding to downscale and restructure.
