Mike Young

Mike Young is the CEO of Vimy Resources, a Perth-based uranium company which is developing the Mulga Rock Project in Western Australia and Alligator River Project in the Northern Territory.

Mike’s passion for uranium began when he worked in the freezing uranium mines of northern Saskatchewan for a few years after graduating as a geologist from Queens University, Canada.   He moved to the sunshine of Western Australia in the late 1980s, working as a consultant geologist before becoming the MD of BC Iron Limited, which he took from first drillhole to first iron ore shipment in under four years. 

He joined Vimy Resources in 2013, promoting his strong belief that nuclear energy is the cleanest, safest and most reliable source of power there is.
