Victoria Peacey

President / Resolution Copper

Peacey has been in the mining industry for over two decades across a wide range of disciplines. She started her career in 2001 as a project engineer and the Bingham Canyon mine and worked across the Kennecott Copper complex including the mine, concentrator, smelter and refinery covering engineering, technical studies, environmental and reclamation.

She then moved to Marquette, Michigan in 2008 as Manager of Environmental, Permitting, Health, Safety and Land for Rio Tinto’s Kennecott Eagle Mine where she developed and implemented a strategy to successfully obtain all Federal, State and County permits and approvals for a new Greenfield underground mine, concentrator and tailings facility to facilitate new copper and nickel production.

From 2010 to 2020, Peacey held a variety of roles at Resolution Copper covering external affairs, communications, communities, environment, permitting and cultural heritage. The work over that time focused on nature, water, the environment and cultural heritage so the mine will be operated in a way that preserves and protects the natural surroundings.

Through 2021 and 2022, she led Communities and Social Performance for Rio Tinto Americas and Chief of Staff for the Chief Operating Office of Rio Tinto Copper. Her current role is President of Resolution Copper.

Peacey lives in Gilbert, Arizona with her husband and three children and has a bachelor’ degree in applied geoscience and a master’s in civil engineering.
