The majority of Brian’s career was with Newmont Mining Corporation, most recently as the Group Executive for Worldwide Exploration, and after 27 years of service he announced his retirement earlier this year. Before Newmont, Mr. Levet started out with Rio Tinto Rhodesia and Zimbabwe Iron and Steel Corporation after earning a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of London (Derby College of Technology). Brian is recognized within the mining industry for exploration expertise and team leadership that resulted in a number of major discoveries, including the Batu Hijau and Elang copper-gold deposits in Indonesia, the North Lanut gold deposit in North Sualwesi, Indonesia, and the McPhillamys gold deposit in New South Wales, Australia. He also led the team that re-interpreted and defined the Martabe gold deposit in Sumatra, was part of the team that recognized the epigenetic origins of the Telfer gold deposit in Australia, and played a significant role in the identification of Yanacocha as a world-class gold mining camp. These successes in generative exploration highlight a key talent that is being added to EMX’s Board with Mr. Levet’s appointment.
As part of Mr. Levet joining the EMX Board of Directors, he has been granted 150,000 incentive stock options, exercisable at a price of $2.91 per share for a period of five years.
EMX is exploring and investing in a first class mineral property and royalty portfolio in some of the most prospective, but under-explored mineral belts of the world.
