Biography of William Lewis

William Lewis has several decades experience working in the Canadian mining sector including Manitoba and the Northwest Territories. He graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1985 with a degree in Geology. Prior to his position as an underground geologist (later Head Geologist) at New Britannia Mine in Manitoba Bill Lewis worked at the mill as Crusher and Roaster Operator in Yellowknife at Giant Mine from July 1992 to January 1994 after being hired on during a strike. From January 1994 to 1996 he would take up the position of underground (production) geologist initially overseeing production from the Dick and Ruttan Zones below the 1780 level and later Hogg zone until his appointment to Senior Geologist position in August of 1997 and later Chief Geologist in January 2003. During this period he would be responsible for the annual resource and reserve estimations, geological budgets, exploration programs. Due to a curtailed exploration budget following the low gold prices in the 1990’s and early 2000s the New Britannia Mine closed in March of 2005. Bill would move on to work for his current employer, the Toronto based Micon International Limited consulting firm.
