2014 - Present: Marketeye.org Boutique

Since the summer of 2014 I have been providing consultancy services  under my bespoke research boutiqe brand Marketeye.org.  While remaining faithful to the natural resources sector, I have branched  out to management consultancy in a wider field. Although this is  expanding my knowledge base, I would love to return to an executive  role in the mining and metals industry. Contact me on andrew [at]  zemek.com. 

2009-2014: Exploring for Metals in Poland

This 5-year period covers two employments: 2009-2011 as a Director of  Operations, Europe (Board position) with Strzelecki Metals Ltd listed  in Sydney (ASX), and 2011-2014 with the New York City based Electrum Group (private equity) as a Senior Adviser. In both cases my work  concentrated on all aspects of mineral exploration in Poland: applying for  mineral concessons, dealing with government departments; preparing  exploration programs and supervising day-to-day operations of two local  companies there. I was also involved in fundraisng in Australia and  takeover negotiations.

2005-2009: Preparing to build a Zn/Pb mine

in Greenland + exploration + fundraising

For over 4 years I was the Chief Operating Officer (Board position) of  Angus & Ross plc (A&R), a London-listed (AIM) mineral exploration  junior. The company had exploration properties on 5 continents, but my  main focus was on Greenland, where A&R was preparing to re-open the  legendary Black Angel zinc-lead mine. Apart from the day-to-day running  of the company, numerous fundraisings, supervising exploration  programs, and dealing with the Government of Greenland I was closely  involved in preparation of a Bankable Feasibility Study for the project.  I  was also involved in A&R’s gold exploration JV in China.  

2002-2004: Selling Technical Services

In 2002 my colleague Richard Thompson and I opened and ran the  London office of the US/Canadian technical consultancy Norwest  Corpoartion Ltd. The company offered technical consultancy services  to the metal and coal mining sectors, oil sands and oil shale sector,  governments etc.  I was a Director of the London Office performing a  sales role and looking after the accounts of the company.  

1999-2002: Analyst, Lecturer, Journalist

During this 3.5-year period I worked as a freelance consultant within  the metals and mining sector. My assignments came from clients like the  World Bank, US Government (DoE), McKinsey & Co, major mining  equipment manufacturers, the Mining Journal Research Services, United  Nations, Raw Materials Group, World Gold Council, CRU and others.  I was the Chairman and (later) Management Committee member of the  Association of Mining Analysts, I wrote country reviews for the  Mining Journal, and I lectured on commodity trading courses run by  Euromoney. I also developed a commodity hedging software for a metal  trading client and wrote a book on environmentally and socially  responsible mining published by the United Nations (a free PDF  download is available through this link).  

1992-1998: Trading LME Futures & Cathodes

For over 6 years I worked for the London office of a large Polish copper  and silver producer KGHM Polish Copper. I started as a Copper  Trader progressing to the Managing Director of the London operation.  During that time I acquired an intimate knowledge of hedging with  futures on the London Metal Exchange (1000s of positions) as well  as physical commodity trading of copper, silver & gold and metal  concentrates. I was in charge of £600m+ turnover company and trained  many junior traders. 

1987-1992: Supplying UK industry with ball

bearings and steel products

In 1987 I was seconded by Warsaw-based import-export company  IMPEXMETAL to take up a Sales Manager position in London. I was  supplying ball bearings and other steel products to UK and Irish clients  including major manufacturers of cars and agricultural machinery. This  position gave me a good exposure to the precsion engineering sector. 

1978-1987: Importing 13,000 types of ball


Between 1978 and 1987 I worked in Poland, my coutry of birth. As a  Sub-Department Manger I was in charge of imports of over 13,000  different lines of ball bearings and similar products required by the Polish  industry.
