In this episode we chat to Alistair Ross, President and CEO at Rockcliff Metals Corporation who are a well-funded Canadian major explorer in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt, hosting mines and deposits that contain copper, zinc, gold and silver.

We talk about Alistair’s life mission is “to bring nobility to the mining industry.” An exciting chat about the what design features in a mine could be altered to fundamentally improve the safety and health and performance of the industry and much more….


  • The mining industry has been hugely beneficial to society in lots of ways, but it also has a legacy of negativity that is sometimes difficult to overcome. Perception needs to be changed.
  • Those with highly stressful jobs, can suffer from a compromised immune system. This makes those in the mining sector especially susceptible to certain infections, and requires a greater level of self-care.
  • Improving the mental health of mining workers may be impossible, but our industry should in no way ever detract from their mental health at any time. It is up to us to ensure that happens, and so improve the nobility of mining.
  • As upper level management, we should seek to hire supervisors and managers who are not simply good miners, but who care about people, and who can provide real leadership as well as empathy.
  • The challenge for larger mining companies, is to retain and encourage a sense of agility instead of becoming complacent.
