Owen Cannon

Australian Operations Coordinator - Senior Mining Consultant

Melbourne, Australia

1) Tell us a bit about yourself 

I graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2011, completing a Bachelor of Engineering in Mining (B. Eng. Mining).  After finishing uni, I went straight into work, working in the mining industry (operational positions) for 6 years before applying to work at Mining Plus. 

 

2) Tell us about your position at Mining Plus

I've been part of the Mining Plus team for 2.5 years. I started my journey at MP as part of the Operations team and worked on various sites around Australia. Recently I have taken on the role of the Australian Operations Coordinator. Working closely with Stuart Bodey our MP Operations Manager. 

 

3) What do you enjoy about your particular position and Mining Plus? 

Because I started off my Mining Plus journey as part of the Operations team, and with my current role, it is really rewarding to be able to assist other team members that are starting off their mining operations journey.

My experience at MP has given me a hands-on and educational perspective and allowed me to develop a stronger relationship, whilst mentoring my team members. I'm very fortunate that I get to work with some of the best mining professionals in the industry on a daily basis! 

4) Any hobbies and what do you do in your free time? 

I'm a big outdoors person! On the weekends and in my free time you can probably find me fishing on my boat named the 'SeaPig' or camping and exploring. I also play footy for West Footscray and enjoy keeping active.
