Mr. Jarvis has more than 25 years experience in exploration and development of mineral resources, both in oil and gas and metals. After a career in financing exploration projects as a stockbroker, Mr. Jarvis moved to the corporate side of the business in 1996. He joined the Board of Ultra Petroleum, which at the time was a small oil and gas exploration and development company with a large, unconventional gas deposit. As Director responsible for Corporate Finance, he raised the equity capital necessary to prove the concept and to establish enough production to finance further growth with debt. Ultra Petroleum has grown from a market capitalization of $10 million to its current capitalization of more than $7 billion.
Mr. Jarvis became CEO and President of Hard Creek Nickel Corp. in January, 2004. During his tenure the company has drilled off a giant sulphide nickel deposit and has assembled a team of talented professionals dedicated to developing the resource.
