She has held senior positions to Vice President level in major TSX listed companies, and for two years was Mine Manager for the Voisey’s Bay mine in Labrador. Ms. White’s major project development and management experience provides the Leading Edge team access to a valuable set of skills.
Dr Dag Øistein Eriksen
Dr. Eriksen is based in Oslo, Norway, where he has had a long and accomplished career in REE extraction and separation chemistry. During the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Dr Eriksen was a senior scientist at Megon AS (renamed as Extratec AS in 1991) that researched leaching of various REE ores and developed the well known “Megon process” for the extraction and purification of yttrium by solvent extraction. Through his consulting roles, Dr. Eriksen is very well connected within Europe, and ideally suited to advise Leading Edge as it assesses various processing and separation project requirements.
