Mr. Taj Singh (biography)
With over 22 years of global mining experience, Mr. Singh has demonstrated his capabilities in both the operational and business aspects of mining. Most recently Singh was founding President and CEO of NOA Lithium Brines Inc. (“NOA”) and he still currently acts as a Strategic Advisor. During Singh’s time leading NOA, it advanced significantly, with opportunistic asset acquisitions as a private company, completion of its reverse-takeover and going-public transaction, successful funding rounds, and substantial exploration success; the company rapidly emerged as a premier lithium explorer in the prolific Argentine lithium district.
Prior to NOA, Singh spent five years as founding President and CEO of Mexico-focused Discovery Silver Corp (“Discovery”) leading its tremendous growth. The market capitalization of Discovery increased approximately thirty times (30x) to over C$500 million during Singh’s time, establishing Discovery as one of the preeminent development companies in the precious metals sector. For four years, starting at the time of its 2016 go-public, Singh also served as Director and Lead Independent Director of the board of GT Gold Corp. which was subsequently acquired by Newmont Corporation for approximately $400 million.
Other roles during Mr. Singh’s career include Vice-President Business Development for Mexican gold producer Timmins Gold Corp. (since acquired by Argonaut Gold Inc.), Mining Equity Research Analyst at Macquarie Capital Markets, and over 10 years working in various operations, engineering and project development roles for major diversified miners Inco Limited and Vale Limited. Mr. Singh is a Professional Engineer (P.Eng), a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), a Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree (Metallurgy / Minerals Processing) and a Master of Engineering degree (Metallurgy).
