Adam is a director of and has provided consultancy services to ECR’s Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”) since April 2018 and has been involved in the supervision of drilling programmes and has undertaken geochemical and rock chip sampling and geological mapping campaigns.
He has considerable experience in geological interpretation, geotechnical and fault modelling, geological mapping and sampling, turbidite sequence-structural interpretations, wireframing and 3D modelling using Vulcan Software.

ECR Chairman David Tang commented: “Adam has been a key member of the ECR team since the day he joined, and I am delighted that he is now assuming an executive director role. I know he impressed our CEO on his recent trip to Victoria, and, looking forward, the Company will now benefit from his guidance and input on a higher strategic level.”
ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe added: “My decision to join ECR was very much influenced by the manner in which Adam has managed the Company’s ongoing drilling campaigns in Victoria as well as the skillset and vision demonstrated in his assessment and acquisition of the Lolworth Range project. My recent trip served to confirm my early impressions, and I very much look forward to working closely with him and benefitting from his expertise as we develop our asset portfolio.”
