Mike Etheridge

Dr Mike Etheridge is a geologist who has had a varied career in universities, a government research organisation and in industry. He was a director of Consolidated Minerals prior to its takeover by Palmary (AIM) and Ariana Resources (AIM). In 1989, Dr Etheridge switched from public sector research to industry and co-founded the geoscience consultancy business Etheridge Henley Williams (EHW). EHW grew to over 30 staff on three continents before it merged with the SRK Consulting group to become SRK’s Australasian business in 1997. In 2004 Dr Etheridge left SRK Australasia, where he was chair, to pursue a career as a professional company director in the resources and related R&D sectors. His relationship with Sagon Resources (formerly Clancy Exploration) stretched back to 2004 when he was founding non-executive chair of Geoinformatics Exploration (TSX-V) from which Clancy Exploration was spun out in 2007.
