The Management Team of Redstone is composed of qualified professionals whose complementary skills and experience span a broad range of the mineral exploration and development process. All have one common trait, which is a passion for geology and a firm committment to the highest work standards.
Michael (Mike) Mlynarczyk holds a Ph.D. in economic geology from McGill University, Montreal, where he also worked as research associate and course lecturer, prior to joining the minerals industry. He is a registered P.Geo. in Canada, as well as a Eur.Geol. / P.Geo. in Ireland, with 18 years of international experience in a variety of geological terrains (Canada, Peru, Morocco, Ireland, Poland, Serbia, Mali, Niger). Most notably, between 2007-2013, Mike served as chief geologist for Rathdowney Resources, a Hunter-Dickinson Group company. Grown up in North Africa and having traveled widely, Mike is quadrilingual (ENG-FR-POL-SPA). He is the author of several papers published in refereed journals and a member in good standing of the Ordre Professionnel des Géologues du Québec (OGQ) and the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (IGI) / European Federation of Geologists (EFG), as well as the SEG, SGA, IAGOD, IAEG, MAC, GSA, and PDAC. A full resume is available on request and detailed credentials can be accessed in MM credentials
Wojtek (Wojciech) Retman, M.Sc., P.Eng. is a graduate of the Silesian University in Katowice and the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow (Poland), and a fluent English speaker. He has over 30 years industry experience, in particular in mining geology and in zinc-lead ore systems. In the years 1985-2009 he worked in the world-class Zn-Pb mines of “ZGH Boleslaw” near Olkusz in Silesia, where for 7 years he was chief mine geologist. After his retirement from ZGH, he devoted himself to geological consulting. He is also involved in research on the application of geophysical methods to mineral exploration at the AGH University in Krakow, and was the first to implement IP geophysics in the search for zinc-lead ores in the Cracow-Silesian district. He is the author of over 100 geological documentations, publications, and reports, including many on the geology of Zn-Pb, Cu, Ag, U, and Ni deposits, and a certified exploration geologist as well as certified mine geologist, as per the Polish state regulations.
Mariusz Krzak has a Ph.D. and an M.Sc. in economic geology from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow (Poland), where he currently holds the post of researcher and course lecturer. His interests center on the adaptation of mathematic models in mine management, decision making in mineral investment, and mineral exploration. He has been actively involved in the economic evaluation of mineral projects, with special focus over the last 17 years on sedimentary-hosted copper deposits. Mariusz is the author of over 50 refereed papers, and an additional two dozen reports and geological maps. He is a fluent English speaker, with a working knowledge of Russian language, and is well traveled. In 2001 he was visiting professor at the University of Oviedo (Spain), and subsequently attended post-graduate courses organized by London's Imperial College and Brussels' TAIEX office. Mariusz has also conducted research in Southern Peru, and practices climbing and mountaineering in his spare time.
Tom Jarzebczyk has a B.Sc. from the University of Szczecin, an M.Sc. in logistics from the University of Czestochowa (Poland), and is a fluent English speaker, owing to the fact he worked for many years in Ireland. He is a jack-of-all-trades with experience in the field aspects of mineral exploration, including leading field teams, program logistics, equipment and mechanics. Most notably, for the last six years he was involved in base-metal exploration programs in Ireland and Poland, involving extensive geochemical soil sampling programs, airborne and ground geophysics, prospecting, and drilling campaigns. In addition, he holds a degree in sociology and has a good experience in dealing with people, which together with his cheerful and friendly disposition have served him well in the community relations aspect of exploration.
