Peter Reid is a professional geologist with 21 years' experience. Peter has strong exploration credentials having worked initially for the Regional Geological Survey of South Australia and later with Minotaur Resources Ltd. This included being involved in the discovery of the world class Prominent Hill Cu-Au deposit that was subsequently sold to Oz Minerals. During this time he generated a portfolio of nickel projects, and aided the spin out of a successful IPO, Mithril Resources Ltd, from Minotaur.
With Minotaur's support he went on to researching Australia's engineered geothermal energy potential, working closely with the University of Adelaide. The result of this work led to formation of Petratherm Ltd, a specialist engineered geothermal explorer and developer, and in July 2004 he led this through to a successful ASX listing as the founding CEO of Petratherm Ltd. With the expansion of the company both in Australia and overseas, the maturation of its flagship project Paralana, he took on the role of exploration manager in 2006 through to 2013. In 2011 he received the Australian Geothermal Energy's Association's Chairman's Award for his services to the Australian Geothermal Industry and he is the current Chairman of the Australia Geothermal Report Code.
In recent months he has reduced his geothermal commitments to focus on new ventures in minerals industry, as both a director of private exploration company and now at Lawson Gold Limited.
