Gilbert Malose Thobejane

Gilbert Malose Mashilo Repo Thobejane

Nickname: 'Repo Slenda and Morwa'

Section Geologist, Twickenham Mine ANGLO PLATINUM


Currently resides in: Limpopo, South Africa

Born in Moshira South Africa

I am a hard working Geologist who has enough experience in mining and exploration. At the moment I'm looking for a more senior position at any operation. My mining experience includes open pit mining and underground trackless and conventional mining. I have both Merensky and UG2 experience. I worked for both Diamond and Platinum mines. My experience is well above 7 years and I originate from Burgersfort and have worked at Two Rivers during exploration of the second shaft. I need a new challenging job at the moment.
I’m a true speaking person, very transparent, honest and polite in everything I do or say but most people hate me for it. I don’t fear anything and I certainly do no fervors. I don’t have enemies except unfair people and those who do corruption. When it comes to doing the right thing and talking the truth I don’t care who says what and who is it going to affect, I just do it.

In my career I trained lot of successful Geologist during their junior level some of them during their training time as graduates.

I was in charge of the biggest section at Khuseleka 1 Shaft and open pit project at Khuseleka 2 shaft. I manage a drill rig for surface drilling and two underground drill rigs for cover and prospect drilling.
I’m now running Twickenham Shaft of the Twickenham Mine project. I'm looking for a new better and challenging job at the moment.
