Ian spends about half of his time working on mining engineering, planning, and studies. The other half? Stantec business initiatives. As a senior mining engineer, he’s focused on mining method selection, production rate selection, and financial modeling.
Recently, Ian completed due diligence work for a company looking to acquire a mine. He reviewed the technical mining plan, focusing on risks and opportunities as well as reviewing for information that might have been missing or wasn’t considered. Ian also works with Stantec’s Innovation team as an innovation coach. His goal? To guide talented people, bring visibility to their ideas, and hopefully support commercializing those ideas.
When he isn’t at work, Ian volunteers his business planning expertise to local startups. He’s helped start-up mining technology companies develop their value proposition and grow their businesses. He’s also an avid traveler having visited approximately 40 countries and every continent except Antarctica.
