SRK Further Expands Diamond Group

VANCOUVER, BC – JANUARY 29, 2019 – The SRK Vancouver Mining team welcomes Principal Geologist Herman Grütter to its Diamond Group.

 Herman is a business-minded geologist with over 25 years’ experience. He has advised clients across a range of applied geoscience disciplines during exploration, development. and resource-level evaluation of diamond (and porphyry-copper) projects.

Prior to joining SRK, Herman filled primarily technical roles covering greenfields targeting and applied research and development (De Beers), diamond industry consulting (Mineral Services Canada), project valuation and commodity analysis (BHP), and resource delineation and expansion (Peregrine Diamonds). In these roles, he advised major, mid-tier, and junior companies in safe, effective technical program execution for over 100 greenfield and many brownfield and resource-stage projects budgeted at $200K to $30M annually and located throughout Africa, the Americas, Europe/Scandinavia and Asia Minor. He has parlayed the major project advisory experience he gained at Ekati, Alto Cuilo-Luange, Fort ala Corne, and Chidliak into risk assessment and financial metrics that support realistic buy-side or sell-side analysis during corporate mergers and acquisitions or financing transactions.   

Herman has a PhD in metamorphic petrology and structural geology from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. He is a regular invited speaker at diamond industry conferences, a presenter for professional short courses, and a guest lecturer at geoscience research institutes. He has authored and edited dozens of journal publications, many concerned with the diamond sphere.

“Over the past 20 years, I have encountered Herman's work on world-class as well as smaller diamond projects,” said Corporate Consultant Jarek Jakubec, “and have consistently been impressed by his insights into the diamond industry and his skills in diamond project evaluation and development. His expertise will be invaluable to our diamond group as we strive to deliver comprehensive services tailored to current and future clients alike.”
