It is enormously important that mining companies maintain stability, to prop up the economy. In difficult economic times, people often turn to minerals like gold and silver as a hedge against stock market downturns, which means companies need to be able to store as much of these minerals as they can as safely as possible. All of that makes Mick Shemesian‘s job as a mineral prospector very important. They keep a large portion of the world economy humming along.

As Mick Shemesian knows, there are sometimes huge overheads associated with minerals like those, and it is often far too easy for some large players to manipulate the market to their own benefit and to the detriment of others. That makes the maintaining of large stocks of certain mineral resources critically important. And the best way to do that is for professional mineral prospectors like Mick Shemesian to do their job well and constantly locate new resources. His decades of experience has been lauded by many and he is considered an expert in the prospecting field nowadays.

His experience is also global in scope, having plied his trade on four continents, including his home continent of Australia, as well as Asia, Africa and North America. He is not only happy with his job, he is happy he can identify, review, and analyze mineral deposits anywhere in the world. While he started by working in the Pilbara region of Australia, he has also worked as a prospector on three additional continents; Asia, Africa and North America. That level of experience is likely why he has served on the Board of Directors for Arak Resources and Cobalt 27 for the past few years. It is also why he has been the Chief Executive Officer for EML since 2005.
