As president of BRS, Mr. Beahm has managed multi-disciplinary professional project teams and successfully managed the completion of numerous multi-million dollar planning, design, and construction projects.
In the past 5 years, BRS has completed numerous uranium projects which include a variety of mineral resource, PEA, and feasibility studies and technical reports for ISR, open pit, underground, conventional milling, and heap or vat leaching projects.
