Farhad Abasov, Millennial’s Chair, commented “We are very pleased that Dr. Stauffer has decided to join Millennial's Board. Dr. Stauffer has a long, distinguished career in potash, phosphate and fertilizer applications and marketing as well as the junior mining sector. Over his career he has developed international programs promoting the benefit of balanced fertilizer applications, particularly in developing countries including Africa, and he will be instrumental in our efforts to bring increased food production to the region. The addition of Dr. Stauffer continues our efforts to form a strong potash-focused Board and we are looking forward to his contributions as we accelerate the development of our Banio Potash Project in Gabon.”
Dr. Stauffer has had an extensive career in agriculture development and the fertilizer business. He has worked in both the public and private sectors in research, education and chemical production and sales. In 1988, Dr. Stauffer became a regional director of PPI and PPIC and in 1994 was promoted to the position of Vice President, International Programs at PPI and became the President of PPIC. During his tenure as President of PPIC, Dr. Stauffer coordinated PPIC's seven international research and education-based potash and phosphate market development programs throughout Asia and Latin America. Dr. Stauffer has lectured on the role of potash and phosphate in increasing food production and the role of balanced fertilizer practices in maximizing crop yield and income opportunities for the farming community.
Dr. Stauffer’s mining experience includes time as Allana Potash’s Chairman from 2010 to 2015 where he successfully guided the company through the exploration and feasibility stages at its Danakhil Potash Project in Ethiopia culminating in the sale of Allana to Israel Chemicals Ltd. in 2015. Dr. Stauffer obtained his B.Sc. (Agriculture) and M.Sc. from the University of Guelph and obtained his Ph.D. in Agronomy from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University.
