Metallurgical Systems Founder and Managing Director
John is an experienced metallurgist, engineer and consultant, as well as founder and managing director of Metallurgical Systems. He is a member of the Export Council of Australia, a fellow of AusIMM, and an Alternate Director of Austmine. He is passionate about increasing transparency and improving compliance in the global mining sector, and speaks regularly at industry events.
John has a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) from UNSW, and worked as a pilot with the Royal Australian Airforce before dedicating himself to the metallurgy sector. In 2006, John founded Elemental Engineering, delivering sophisticated process simulation and process development consulting services to the minerals processing industry.
During this time, John saw many plants operating without any detailed insight into their performance. Data capture and analysis were done manually, using error-prone, time-consuming spreadsheets, and most analysis was limited in its scope. John sought to improve this situation by bringing data and analytics into the minerals processing sector, and in 2010, founded Metallurgical Systems.
Under John’s ownership and management, Metallurgical Systems has grown to feature a strong team of specialists, including software developers, data scientists, engineers and metallurgists. We also have a dedicated research and development team to ensure our suite of software is continually evolving and exceeding our customers’ expectations.
