Speaker: Treye Konrath, PE

About The Speaker: Treye Konrath graduated from the University of Arizona in 1998 with BS in Animal Science.  He worked for a few years for Cargill in their Animal Feed Division before going back to school at New Mexico State University where he completed a second BS in Civil Engineering.  After graduation, he worked at Grenier Engineering as a structural engineer.  Working on commercial and industrial projects gave him exposure to the mining industry, where he eventually joined Freeport-McMoRan as Senior Engineer.  Treye has worked extensively as project engineer, tailings engineer/superintendent and now as the Crusher Operations Superintendent at Freeport-McMoRan’s Safford site.
