Based in Vancouver, Canada, Mr. Tomlinson brings over 30 years of experience in metallurgical research, engineering and operations support. For over a decade, he worked in the corporate technical services groups at Goldcorp and Barrick Gold. He founded Turnstone in April, 2021, and has subsequently worked on the Texas-based Round-Top project in developing a fully integrated flowsheet to support development of this lithium and rare earth orebody.
Company chief executive officer Patrick Morris notes: "Today's announcement is another milestone event in the development of our venture. Our company is laser focused on the development of clean, sustainable extraction and processing solutions for claystone deposits, and with this appointment, we look forward to transforming our strategic technical ambitions into commercial viability. We welcome Marcus to the team and look forward to building value together."
Upon Newmont's acquisition of Goldcorp, Mr. Tomlinson served as a director, modelling, in the Newmont global projects team (2020 to 2021). During this period, he supported the expansion project at the world renowned Pueblo Viejo mine, among other large-scale initiatives. At Goldcorp (2012 to 2020), he served in the corporate technical services team as director, metallurgy and research. During this time, he developed a patented process for concentrate enrichment, and supported preflotation and pyrite leach projects at the Penasquito mine. He also worked on projects to improve leach efficiency and reduce effluent toxicity. He was also involved in development of Goldcorp's GeoMet strategy to improve predictability of metallurgical performance and financial expectations from projects and operations.
Prior to this, he served as manager, metallurgy, with Barrick Gold Corp. (2008 to 2012) in the technical services group, offering modelling and metallurgical support to global operations and development projects.
Mr. Tomlinson has also worked with a number of major engineer companies: Worley Parsons Mining & Metals (2007 to 2008) in Australia; AMEC Americas Mining and Metals, Canada (2003 to 2007); Ausenco, Australia (2001 to 2003); AMEC Simons Mining Group, Canada (1999 to 2001); and Fluor Daniel Mining & Minerals (1996 to 1999). His career started as a senior metallurgist with Anglo American Research Lab (1992 to 1995) in South Africa. He gained lithium knowledge through Turnstone's involvement with the Round-Top project and battery recycling project research.
