Mike Binns

Mike was known to most people as a Robertson Research geologist, geochemist and geostatistician based in Sydney and Bowral. He travelled for the company to many out of the way places around the world and to most mineral provinces in Australia.

Later he formed his own company Minstat Pty Ltd and contracted mostly to Nord Pacific working on their Simberi Island gold project and Girilambone copper deposits (Tritton).

He moved to Brisbane in 2003 and worked for Hatch and later Nord Resources until his retirement.

Mike’s funeral took place in Brisbane 23rd May 2022.

His ashes will be interred at Cherrybrook Uniting Church, 134 New Line Rd, Cherrybrook, Sydney, on Tuesday 28th June at 1.30pm. There will be a short service at the wall for those who wish to attend with refreshments after.

Mike had motor neurone disease (MND) which is little understood and for which there is no cure. He requested if people felt inclined a donation be made to MND Australia Research.
