John Elliston has been involved in the conduct and supervision of mineral exploration and research for over 45 years. After early experience as a chemist and consulting geologist he joined a progressive mining company in 1956 where studies led to developing an understanding of the nature and origin of the local mineral deposits. His work and application of the new concepts led to a series of exploration successes and the opening of these new mines resulted in dramatic growth of the company. He was appointed to the board of the parent company in 1969. As an Executive Director he was responsible for the activities of a number of technical subsidiaries including Geopeko Limited and he also became a director of several large mining and industrial companies. He directed the exploration and mine geological teams who went on to develop further significant Australian resources.
