Luca Giacovazzi is the Chief Executive Officer of Wyloo, which manages a diverse portfolio of production assets, projects, exploration growth opportunities and cornerstone investments in Australia and Canada.
In early 2022, Wyloo acquired Canadian-based Noront Resources and its world-class nickel-copper-platinum-palladium Eagle’s Nest project and large-scale chromite resource.
In 2023 Wyloo acquired Mincor Resources, a nickel producer in Western Australia’s prolific Kambalda region delivering 15 thousand tonnes of nickel from its Cassini and Northern Operations mines per year.
Wyloo has partnered with IGO to develop Australia’s first integrated battery material facility in Kwinana, Western Australia, producing high-value nickel dominant precursor cathode active material (PCAM) for the battery supply chain. The company also plans to build a downstream processing facility in Ontario, Canada.
Luca is committed to enabling a safe supply of high-grade critical materials, from extraction to processing, using the highest standards of environmental sustainability and in partnership with local and First Nation communities.
Luca was previously at Credit Suisse, where he successfully completed numerous metals and mining transactions in Australia and internationally.
He holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Chartered Accounting) from the University of Johannesburg, a Master of Management from the University of Sydney and a Master of International Management from the London School of Economics (CEMS).
