Experienced mining and chemical engineer
A mining and chemical engineer, Howe was appointed to the board in November 2019 as part of the company’s continuing evolution to ensure the best available skills are employed as the Abra Base Metals Project in WA moves through the development phase and into production.
Howe's experience includes six years as Zinifex Limited chief development officer, which at the time was one of the world’s largest miners and smelters of lead-zinc with assets on three continents.
During his tenure at Zinifex, Howe oversaw some of the most significant transactions in the global lead-zinc industry, including the spin-off of Zinifex’s smelters to create Nyrstar NV and restarting development of the Dugald River Mine.
