Charlie Bass - CEO and Managing Director of Eagle Mountain Mining
Science, technology, entrepreneurship and mining
If there is someone who epitomises Western Australia’s own variation on STEM it has to be Charlie Bass.
As a qualified geologist and mining engineer Charlie Bass first ventured to WA 40 years ago to work in the local mining sector.
In the 1990s he was a founder of gold company Eagle Mining and, in 2000, jointly established iron ore player Aquila Resources. After selling out of Aquila he turned his attention to fostering the business talents of WA’s scientists by opening the Centre of Entrepreneurial Research and Innovation. His philanthropy also extends to funding education for disadvantaged children.
Lately, though, his entrepreneurial attention has been drawn back to mining. His ASX-listed company Eagle Mountain Mining has acquired copper-gold leases in Arizona and Charlie is excited to be back in mining the saddle again.
