Mike was the founding Managing Director of BC Iron Limited. He successfully steered BC Iron through initial exploration, resource definition, feasibility study, the negotiation of development agreements with Fortescue Metals Group, and ultimately the profitable production of iron ore – all in under four years from the first drill hole. When he left in May 2013, BC Iron had a market capitalisation of $500 million.
