David ShawPh.D. Geology
Since completing his doctorate in 1980, Mr. Shaw has worked both in the technical and financial communities within the resource industry. Seven years were spent with Chevron Resources in Calgary and Vancouver, employed initially as an in-house structural consultant on both metal and hydrocarbon exploration programs and then as a member of a hydrocarbon project financial evaluation team. Upon leaving Chevron, he initiated and developed the Resource Research Group at Charlton Securities Ltd., Calgary before assuming the position of Senior Mining Analyst, Corporate Finance, at Yorkton Securities Inc. in Vancouver. Throughout Mr. Shaw’s career, he has built strong relationships with European financial institutions and the global mining community.
“I joined First Mining because the timing was opportune to acquire technically robust projects at distressed prices. The technical and management teams were both experienced and very capable with impressive track records - all in all a very good combination” - D. Shaw
