Johan Swart - CEO
I add value with my ability to apply knowledge and experience gained over more than 30 years. This helps to facilitate creative solutions for my clients. My experience includes coal exploration and modelling of coal deposits, underground and open cast mining, coal sampling, analysis and QAQC as well as data management. I am a Competent Person as specified by SAMREC, JORC and NI43-101. I can sign off reports and technical audits which enable my clients to register their projects on different securities exchanges globally. My strengths are in coal exploration planning and management, geological modelling using MINEX software, resource reporting and evaluation of coal projects and reporting of results.
I have worked on projects in most of the coal fields in South Africa. International experience include: Mozambique, Botswana, Russia, Mongolia and Zimbabwe. The range of services included exploration planning and management, modelling and resource estimation, competent/qualified person's reports, feasibility studies, project evaluations, model and resource audits, opencast mining and underground mining as well as coaching of young geologists. I have also managed exploration, feasibility and due diligence projects.
Although most of my experience is in coal, I also have experience in base metal exploration, sampling and analysis, quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) and alluvial diamonds.
