Tom Paddon is the President and CEO of Baffinland Iron Mines, Ltd. The company is currently developing Canada’s newest and most northerly iron ore mine, the Mary River Project, located on Baffin Island in the Qikiqtani region of Nunavut in Canada’s High Arctic.
Mr. Paddon’s previous experience of developing and operating the Voisey’s Bay Project, also in Canada’s north, involved successfully integrating the rights of indigenous peoples with unparalleled environmental performance standards and the developer’s commercial interests. The Voisey’s Bay Project set new benchmarks for achieving social license and commercial success in remote mining operations.
Construction is now underway at Mary River.
