His past natural resource clients have included: Metallica Resources, Ultra Petroleum, Silver Standard Resources, Strathmore Uranium, Penaco Energy, Guyana Goldfields, and Boron Chemicals.

Dr. Zajac obtained his BA and MSc degree from the University of British Columbia and a PhD from the University of Michigan. Steve has worked in progressively ascending roles while with IOC, Hanna Mining and its affiliates and currently has an active international mining consultancy.
