Mr Tim Dobson has 23 years of continuous, broad-based experience in a range of ASX-listed and international mining companies. Tim's early career was focused on process/technical roles at largescale gold operations including the original Boddington Gold Mine, the complex Porgera mine in PNG, and the Granny Smith mine north of Kalgoorlie. Four years with Placer Dome's project development team followed, including roles in Canada and Chile, before moving into a lead management role commissioning the first nickel laterite operation in Australia - Centaur Mining's Cawse operation.
Tim then undertook an equally challenging management role at PNG's giant Lihir Gold Mine before relocating back to Cawse as Operations Director where he oversaw the ownership change from USbased OMG to Russian-based Norilsk Nickel. Tim joined Polymetals Group in November 2008 in the role of Chief Operating Officer / EGM-Operations where he oversaw the implementation of the successful White Dam Gold mine in South Australia, and took part in the Company's recent successful ASX listing.
Much of Tim's career has focused on the management and technical challenges of operating complex mineral processing facilities in both PNG and Australia. With ten years management experience, Tim's technical and project management abilities are supported by strong operational leadership, organisational development and strategic planning skills.
Tim holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Extractive Metallurgy) degree from the WA School of Mines, is a member of the AusIMM, and is a graduate of the AICD company director program.
