The Mineline Resources Team
I personally invite you to take some time, scroll down and read through our team bio page for a more lighthearted look at the people behind the brand and a deeper understanding of who we are.
Mineline Management and Administration Team
Mineline Field Team
Mark "Chirgs" Chirgwin
Mark “Chirgs” Chirgwin has 30 years open-cut mining experience working and training in fleet management, autonomous haulage, mining equipment and primary crushers, covering over thirty mines around the world.
Previous to mining he was involved with civil construction, earthworks, concreting, carpentry and plumbing.
Mark joined Mineline Resources back in 2016, with prior history of working with Glenn at two different mining companies.
Mark lives in the NSW Tweed shire and spends his down time completing the to-do-list that his wife has mapped out for him. He also enjoys house renovations, and visiting (read-doting over) their first granddaughter.
Mark's beloved restored Mini Moke is his second pride and joy and generates much interest around the shire.
Any other spare time is spent out at Glenn’s farm helping with renovations, breaking bits on his excavator or enjoying the odd scotch or two on the back porch throwing the ball for his highly energetic Kelpie dog (Bindi).
Nolan "Noggs" Mack
Nolan “Noggs” Mack has over 24 years mining experience in many areas from equipment operations, supervision, planning, emergency response, survey and training. He spent 3 years of that implementing autonomous trucks in Western Australia and the oil sands of Canada and played a pivotal role in the development of the AHS simulators for Komatsu.
Nolan fills many roles at Mineline from data analysis, training, dispatch co-ordination, business improvement, technical documentation and project management. When he’s not at work Nolan fills many roles at Glenn’s farm including fixing bits that Glenn breaks on his bobcat and excavator, throwing the ball for the highly energetic kelpie and generally whinging about Glenn breaking bits on the bobcat and excavator.
Nolan floats between the west and East coast of Australia depending on current projects and the amount of broken bits on the farm equipment.
He also enjoys water skiing, 4wd drive buggy racing, house renovations and the odd scotch or two on Glenn’s back porch. Nolan also has a Mini Moke like Mark but has no time to restore it due to working on the bobcat and excavator.
Dylan "Ninja" Bourne
Dylan Bourne aka ‘The Ninja’ has over twelve years’ experience working in the IT industry, 10 of those spent in the mining industry.
Like all good IT professionals (Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates) Dylan dropped out of school, dropped out of New Zealand and moved to Australia to pursue a career in the Industry.
Dylan is based in Western Australia and is recently married and along with his wife are proud parents to two destructive cushion, boots and jandal chewing dogs
When not geeking out on computers at work, Dylan likes to geek out on computers at home... and also enjoys travelling, 4 wheel driving, web development, having BCFing fun and other ninja type activities.
Dylan was the first employee of Mineline and holds payroll number MLR002 behind Glenn on MLR001. Although the youngest member of the Mineline team, Dylan enjoys reminding the other members of his payroll number on regular and numerous occasions.
Dylan generally avoids the farm so he doesn't get suckered into fixing broken things on the bobcat and excavator or ball throwing for the Kelpie.
The Mineline team has saved millions of dollars and helped moved millions more tonnes for our clients. We have also moved several millions more tonnes on Glenn's back porch. For verification of either of these results we will gladly supply references.
