I have lived in South Africa all my life. When I completed school in 1978 I did a trade and am a qualified Aircraft Electrician. I have an NHD Extractive Metallurgy and worked on several mines in the Gencor Group. I worked for the Process Division of Envirotech (subsequently purchased by GLV) supplying Mineral Processing equipment to the Mining Industry. I have worked for Glencore Technology since 2006 and have been in the Mineral Processing Industry for 36 years.
