James Wallis, M.Sc. (Eng), P. Eng.
Mr. Wallis has 35 years of experience in all phases of mineral exploration and mine development. He has served in senior mine management positions throughout the world, with companies such as Noranda, Kerr Addison, U.S. Borax, Amax and others. While employed as the Mine Engineer at the Allan Potash Mine by U.S. Borax and Chemical Corp., Mr. Wallis was instrumental in the development of the mine - from shaft sinking to the design and selection of underground mining equipment for a large-scale trackless mining operation. Additionally, he spent time at U.S. Borax operations in the U.S. evaluating the economics of their open pit and underground mining operations, gaining knowledge and experience in boron production. Mr. Wallis successfully served Kerr Addison as the On-site Manager of Operations during the feasibility study of the Adanac Molybdenum Deposit.
