Logan Barber

General Manager - Geology

“Global Lithium Resources is still a young company with a very bright future. The level of expertise and the network the company has is incredible,” says General Manager – Geology Logan Barber. “I see a lot of growth ahead and I want to be part of the team that drives it.”

At GL1 as General Manager – Geology, Logan is focused on the discovery and delineation of spodumene hosting pegmatites at our Manna and Marble Bar Lithium Projects , and also assists with the evaluation of any further opportunities as they may arise.

“The best part of exploration is the excitement from discovery,” Logan says. “That moment when you see the diamond core come out of the ground or wash the chips from the rig and see something of value. Making a big discovery is the best when you can share and celebrate it with an amazing team.”

After graduating with from the University of Western Australia in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science (Geology) Hons, Logan’s first job was in gold exploration with Echo Resources, before gaining experience in iron ore with Sinosteel Midwest and Gindalbie Metals.

His introduction to lithium was through a short contract for Global Advanced Metals, drilling out at Tabba Tabba in Marble Bar. He then went to work for Mineral Resources just after they had acquired Wodgina. It was an exciting time as the company transformed the small existing tantalite deposit into a world class lithium asset.

“I enjoyed further success in my next role with BCI Minerals where I was part of the small discovery team to find the Kumina iron ore deposits in the West Pilbara, that were eventually purchased by Mineral Resources.

“While working in exploration management at a consultancy, I became part of an amazing team that acquired the Marble Bar Project, started Global Lithium Resources and defined a significant JORC compliant lithium resource at Archer.

“Early in 2022, I left the consultancy to join Global Lithium full time and my job has been focussing on the delivery of a significant resource upgrade for the Manna Lithium Project, which we achieved in 2022.”

A fan of rock climbing, Logan tries to find a good wall when time and work permits.
