Dr James Maxlow

Dr James Maxlow was born in Middlesbrough, England in 1949. His passion for geology no doubt was inherited from a family history of “ironstone workers” supplying iron ores mined from the Cleveland Hills, south of Middlesbrough, to the foundries and steel rolling mills of Middlesbrough during the 1800s.


James immigrated to Australia with his parents in 1953, where he grew up in Melbourne. He initially studied Civil Engineering at the then Swinburne College, but soon became disillusioned with engineering and redirected himself to a degree in Geology at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, graduating in 1971.

After initially working as a mine geologist in Victoria, a brief sojourn into surveying, survey drafting, mine surveying and home building again saw James return to geology, this time in the Northern Territory and later in Western Australia. His varying work experience being directly attributed to the fluctuating stock market and mining economy at the time – an unfortunate side effect of the profession. James spent in excess of 25 years working as an exploration and mine geologist throughout much of Australia, gaining valuable field experience and knowledge, which he has since applied to research into his other passion – Earth Expansion.
