“I oversee geological exploration, new acquisitions, and raise money,” says James, who has a Masters of Science in Geology from the University of Toronto. “This job requires good knowledge of geology as well as people skills.”

James previously worked as an Exploration Geologist for Cominco Limited before becoming President of Sorbara Geological Consulting Limited. He then served as Vice President for Hi Tec Resource Management Limited before assuming his current position.
