BOARD OF DIRECTORS
DR ANDRE COFFA
BSc., Dip Geol., PhD (Geol.)
Dr Andre A. Coffa has twenty-five years global experience as a professional geoscientist and project manager in the resource sector. Andre gained a breadth of international experience working in diverse resource environments, with both large multi-national and small multi-faceted firms. During his tenure in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa he worked in many capacities: as explorer, in appraisal of newly discovered resources and leading multi-billion-dollar resource developments. Working in outback Australia, he has led various remote field campaigns and been instrumental in large new ventures. He has also led the Sustainable Development effort for Shell Americas and been part of the energy transformation in solar, wind and tidal energy companies. He started his own energy services consultancy company in May 2013. Andre is a past President of the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia and currently serves on the executive committee of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Emmett D’Urso is a graduate of the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Science and Arts double degree in mineral geology, environmental science, and anthropology. He has spent most of his career in precious metals exploration, both in Western Australia and Victoria, contributing to all aspects of the exploration process through to the resource stage. Emmett has extensive experience in executing and managing exploration programs, being an advocate for a strong exploration rationale, constrained by sound science. As URO Corporation’s full-time exploration geologist, Emmett is integral to the success of its ventures. He is very excited to be a part of URO’s new exploration team, looking for the next big discovery in the Northern Territory. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his son, bushwalking and flying light aircraft.
“I have worked for many junior explorers over my career, and I have to say that URO’s exploration ground is by far the most interesting I’ve seen, both in terms of the variety of potential commodities, as well as a mixture of hard rock and sedimentary targets.” Emmett D’Urso
Senior Exploration Geologist
John McIntyre is a field geologist with over 40 years of experience, mainly in metalliferous exploration at all stages from regional targeting to resource drilling, but also in operating mines. He has explored for gold and base metals in the Southwest Pacific, South America, and Iran, having been instrumental in major porphyry copper discoveries in Chile and Peru. He has explored for hydrothermal, and sandstone hosted uranium in Chile and Argentina, lithium brines and iron deposits. He has also been an early adopter of the use of IT in remote field environments.
Cain's lifelong love of minerals and fossils led him to graduate with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Geology at RMIT University. After completing his degree, he went on to work in field geology across Australia starting out west at Kalgoorlie, Mt Magnet and Port Hedland and travelling through Pine Creek NT, Hughenden Queensland, Mt Lyell Tasmania and Haunted Stream Victoria. He has experience with base and precious metals exploration, leading numerous remote field campaigns over the past 25 years.
