Dr Neil Adshead brings more than 25 years of mining sector and buy-side investment experience to the Sprott team. In his role as Portfolio Manager, he will focus on asset management for the RCIC business unit. Prior to joining Sprott as an Investment Strategist in early 2012, Neil was a senior mining analyst with Passport Capital, a San Francisco-based global investment firm, where he was responsible for investment origination and tracking, trading recommendations, technical reviews and project site visits. Neil spent 10 years in exploration, mine geology and corporate roles for Placer Dome subsidiaries in Canada, Australia and Papua New Guinea, before making the move into mining sector investing. At that time, Placer Dome was one of the largest gold mining companies in the world.

Neil was awarded a Ph.D. degree in Economic Geology from James Cook University of North Queensland, Australia, in 1995. After receiving a First Class Honours degree in Earth Sciences from Birmingham University, he worked for a year as a mud logger and data engineer on North Sea oil rigs for a Schlumberger subsidiary.
