Muslim Lakhani, a Pakistani American is Chairman of NAT Power Pakistan (PVT) LTD. He is an entrepreneur and a philanthropist with over 35 years of global experience in the private sector. He has developed natural resources projects and led business ventures in the Middle East, Europe, USA, and South Asia.
Muslim has traveled widely throughout the world, in his youth as an international polo player, and later charting new entrepreneurial paths globally. Beginning his career in 1975 in the UAE, he was involved in a number of projects from starting Dubai’s first polo club with others to helping launch Abu Dhabi’s first commercial radio station, Capital Radio Abu Dhabi FM in 1979.
Throughout his journey, he has undertaken several high-risk ventures. In early 1999, he spearheaded a publicly listed company on the Toronto Stock Exchange, a heavy oil project in Egypt with a debt of over USD 25 million when the price of oil was less than US $12/barrel. When he left in 2003 and the company changed hands, it was in positive cash flow and producing under 4000 bbls/day. Eventually, the company was sold in 2006/7 to a very large fund for just under a billion dollars, when the price of oil was around $120+ a barrel.
In 2003/4 as chairman & chief representative in Pakistan, he helped with a top team of international & local mining experts to re-activate a publicly listed Australian mining company on the ASX, which had a non-stop drilling program. This resulted in the discovery of one of the world’s largest dormant copper mines when the price of copper was nearly at its historical low. This discovery was taken over by two of the largest copper and gold mining companies in the world in the late 2005/6. This discovery is in the remote province of Baluchistan, Pakistan. All of the exploration cost was a result of foreign direct investment (FDI). Today, it is among the most valuable strategic national asset worth Billions of dollars for Pakistan and Baluchistan.
Muslim is driven by the entrepreneurial spirit and believes that risk is rewarded if greed is not the driving factor, to read his full background please click the link: http://www.mlresourcesllc.com/mlstory.php.
