Mark Bartkoski, a registered Profesional Engineer, is a 37 year veteran of the mining industry.  He began his career with a couple engineering degrees from Virginia Tech and then spent the next 10 yrs working his way up the operation ranks from an underground equipment operator, to all phases of production support.  During next 20 yrs Mr. Bartkoski has started-up 2 new mining companies, and lead the rebuild of numerous others.  His style is known to be aggressive, process oriented, value driven, and very employee empowering.  At that point in his career, he wrote a book called Building Integrity, taught its fundamentals in numerous universities, and started international consulting work helping companies through the reorganization process.  In 2015 he syndicated with four other mining executives to purchase a number of distressed metallurgical coal companies. Walters Canada was one of those purchases.  Mr Bartkoski joins us as the President of Conuma Coal Resources.
