Dominic Roberts has been working in the Balkan’s natural resource sector for over a decade. As Operations Director of Mineco he is responsible for the deployment of new projects, opening the Olovo lead mine in 2017 and the optimisation of the Group’s three operating base metal mines in Serbia and Bosnia. After reading geology at Bristol University Dominic joined the British Army, deploying on operations across the globe including tours in both Bosnia and Kosovo. Following a policy secondment to the Cabinet Office in London and a command tour in Iraq, Dominic left military service in 2007. He ran the first commercial waste retreatment project in the region (ferro-chrome slag) subsequently joining Mineco in 2014. Believing in both the potential and the absolute future requirement for European metal mining Dominic has been a driving member of the H2020 Innovation funded IMP@CT project from its fruition in 2016.
