Mineral Deposit Specialist
Mickey is a geologist with over 50 years experience in the global exploration and mining industry, including the last 25 years spent creating, populating and overseeing data completeness and quality on various corporate and commercial mine and deposit databases. He holds an MSc in Mineral Exploration from Imperial College London after gaining his BSc Honours from Queens University Belfast
At DigiGeoData, Mickey is responsible for data research, completeness and quality ( including analyst training ), especially for reserves, production, geology, mineralisation, locations and mine operational aspects
Mickey started his career with 30 years at Western Mining Corporation ( WMC ) in Australia ( now part of BHP ), accumulating exploration and mining experience across virtually every significant commodity, with extensive underground and open pit experience as well as in-depth exposure to mining and treatment concepts and ore reserve compilation. Mickey worked extensively with Queens University Ontario in a joint study of the mineral economics of global mineral exploration and has co-authored several books on the valuation of the Australian exploration and mining industry. He has also spoken at many conferences, trained teachers and analysts, and has worked in over 20 countries, evaluating mines, deposits, companies and countries.
After setting up WMC’s global deposit database, Mickey helped to set up the Intierra database in Perth in 2002, which quickly became the world’s leading such database, based on the pillars of analyst training and data excellence. In this position Mickey developed his relationship with Glen Jones and all other members of the present DigiGeoData technical team. He was the lead researcher for Intierra’s renowned series of global ‘Mines and Mineral Deposits’ maps. This led to similar positions within SNL and S&P , wherein Mickey transformed databases based on rigorous QC and the implementation of industry accepted data characteristics. His last position was with InfoMine Canada
Mickey’s passion extends from data accuracy and quality to data clarity and conceptual data relationships, which will allow DigiGeoData to excel in the critically important aspects of linking exploration and mining data to geological and ore characteristics, thus providing clients with data aspects not present in other commercial databases
