Biographical Information

"Mr Williams is a geologist with over 35 years experience in mineral exploration and mine development. He was the President and CEO of Equinox Minerals Limited, a dual listed TSX - ASX resources company which he co-founded in 1993 with the late Dr Bruce Nisbet. He was instrumental in the financing and development of the major Lumwana Copper mine in Zambia which resulted in Equinox being one of the world’s top 20 copper producers. Following the ramp up of Lumwana, Equinox embarked on an acquisition program that resulted in the takeover of the Citadel Resource Group for $1.2 billion, targeting development of the Jabal Sayid Mine in Saudi Arabia. Equinox was taken over in mid-2011 by Barrick Gold Corporation for $7 billion, bringing to an end a challenging and exciting 18 year history at Equinox. Mr Williams joined the Board of OreCorp as Chairman in December 2011." [1]
