Dr. Neal Rigby has over 42 years of experience in the international mining industry. He was the SRK Global Group Chairman for 15 years (1995 to 2010), a Corporate Mining Consultant and Principal Mining Engineer and had formerly served on the boards of several SRK Group companies. Neal has performed mining engineering, project management and management consulting for a wide range of metalliferous, coal, diamond and industrial mineral projects.
 
The major focus of his consulting work for the past 25 years has been as the director of various SRK multidisciplinary teams in numerous major due diligence audits, competent person’s reports, and other reports supporting the rationalization, merger, disposal, financing and acquisition activities of international mining companies and mining finance institutions. In this role Neal has been in a position to independently certify to shareholders, stock exchanges and financial institutions the “bankability” i.e. fundamental value and risks and opportunities of mining projects.
 
Most recently, Neal’s consulting work has been directed at the restructuring and sale of mining assets and the scoping and implementation of business improvement strategies. He has held a variety of positions in production, academia, business and consulting. Neal has undertaken projects in over 50 countries including Europe, Africa, Australasia, North, Central and South America, the Middle East, the Far East, Asia, Russia and the FSU.
 
Neal has also been increasingly called upon to serve as an expert witness in international arbitration cases providing his expert opinion on mining related issues.
