David Twist

Founding Partner AMED Fund

David was born on 12 November 1953 in St Helens, U.K. He attended Cowley Grammar School in St Helens before graduating with B.Sc. (Honours) in geology at the University of Reading, U.K., in 1975. He subsequently obtained his doctorate from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1980, before joining Impala Platinum Mines in Rustenburg. In 1981, David returned to university life with a tenured research appointment at the University of Pretoria, where his research was focussed on the Bushveld Complex. He has written a number of publications in international geological journals and, in 1988, he was awarded NASA research funding to support his sabbatical year as visiting professor at the University of New Mexico. In 1990, David left university life to develop mineral exploration ventures in partnership with Rudolph de Bruin. The two have now worked closely together in the African mineral sector for more than 25 years. David is actively involved in many aspects of the minerals industry and has acted as executive/non-executive director in various listed and unlisted mineral exploration and development companies, including Platmin, Sephaku Holdings, Taung Gold, Universal Coal and others. He is a partner in African Mineral Exploration and Development (AMED), a Luxembourg-registered private equity fund focussed on the exploration, development and exploitation of mineral resources in Africa. David is a fellow of the Geological Society of London and a member of the Society of Economic Geologists.
