ABOUT

Anton has three years’ experience within the mineral exploration industry.

 

He joined RES in 2017 after completing his B.Sc (Hons) degree from Stellenbosch University. He was primarily involved in project implementation and management of multi-commodity exploration programs in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Gabon. Anton was also involved in kimberlite and lamproite assessments to determine diamond potential for projects in Angola and South Africa. This lead to Anton pursuing an M.Sc related to kimberlite geology at the University of Cape Town from 2020 until 2021. He re-joined the company in 2022 to continue his progression as an exploration geoscientist.
