Change in Regional VP for Australia/Oceania. 

The regional VP for Australia/Oceania has changed.  Dr Roger Skirrow who has been the regional VP in recent years has resigned from his position after recently retiring from Geoscience Australia.  We would like to take the opportunity to thank Roger greatly for his service to the SGA.

The new regional VP for Australia/Oceania fter a unanimous decision by the SGA council will be Professor Cam McCuaig.

Cam is currently the Principal Geoscientist within the Geoscience Centre of Excellence, for BHP Billiton. He received his Honours degree in Geology and Energy and Fuel Science from Lakehead University in 1988, and his PhD in Geology from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996. In the subsequent employment with the international firm SRK Consulting, Cam rose to the position of Director in the Australasian practice, where he garnered 10 years experience in providing solutions to the mining and exploration industry, from greenfields exploration to mine-based geology and valuations of projects. Cam’s experience spans 6 continents and numerous commodities in geological terranes ranging from mid-Archaean to Eocene in age, including Au deposits of all styles, polymetallic intrusion-related and skarn deposits, volcanic-hosted massive-sulphide deposits, Archaean komatiite-hosted Ni, sediment-hosted Cu, amongst others. In August 2005, Cam left SRK to take up the Directorship of the Centre for Exploration Targeting at the University of Western Australia and was in this position for 11 years before moving to BHPB.
