Mr Peter Seear’s early career included 4 years with an Anglo American subsidiary in Johannesburg, South Africa and he later became Technical Director of Joy Manufacturing in Johannesburg where he was transferred to the Pennsylvania USA manufacturing and technology headquarters.
Peter was a founding Director of and investor in Caledon Coal that transformed AIM Listed Caledon Resources from a $20m market cap gold exploration junior into a significant producing coking coal company in the Australian Bowen Basin. Caledon then moved to a dual listing on AIM and the Australian ASX bourse. Peter concluded the sale of Caledon to Chinese SOE, Guangdong Rising Asset Management for $530 million in 2011. In the period 2006 to 2011, a highly focussed exploration program grew JORC Resources from 126MT to in excess of 1.4 Billion tonnes. Consequently Caledon was granted one of the largest export allocations at Wiggins Island coal terminal and this cemented Caledon’s rapid future production growth.
Peter is now a shareholder and investor in coal and diamond mining ventures as well as being a major shareholder in a high technology start-up company that manufactures carbon fibre products.
Peter holds an engineering bachelor’s degree and became a Chartered Engineer prior to completing a PMD at Harvard Business School
