Bernard was appointed managing director in August 2007. He has more than 25 years’internationalexperience inmineralexplorationand minedevelopment. His diverse mineral industry experience includes gold, copper, zinc, diamond, lithium and boron exploration in Australia, Europe, Africa, North America and South America.

He led the Company’s listing on the ASX in 2007 with a focus on gold and copper exploration in Nevada and Peru.
In early 2016 Bernard visited a little-known lithium-boron deposit in southern Nevada – later to be renamed Rhyolite Ridge. He realised the potential opportunity and quickly secured a 12-month option over the Project to give the Company sufficient time to fully assess and evaluate the unique and poorly understood deposit.

Bernard is a member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, the Society of Economic Geologist and the Geological Society of Nevada.
