Introducing Brian Miller, the CEO of Astra Exploration. With a diverse background in exploration and mining, Brian’s leadership is shaping our organization and propelling Astra towards new horizons.
Born and raised on a small farm in rural Idaho, Brian is a natural problem solver who embodies the values of hard work, determination, and a hands-on approach. He started his career in exploration and mining in 2005 and committed himself to creating value wherever and however he could. This attitude allowed him to immerse himself in various facets of the field, including operations, logistics, and project management. His willingness to tackle any challenge head-on and lead by example has set him apart as a leader who takes action and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
To complement his operational expertise, Brian pursued a background in business and finance, graduating from the University of Idaho with a comprehensive skill set in 2010. This well-rounded acumen has played a pivotal role in his success, enabling him to navigate the intricacies of the industry with astuteness and strategic insight.
Before co-founding Astra Exploration in 2020, Brian held positions including CFO and VP of Business Development at Kiska Metals Corp.

Reputation and character are the foundation of Brian’s approach to business. His upbringing on a 5th generation family farm in rural Idaho instilled in him a deep commitment to hard work, perseverance, and integrity. These values are in the fabric of Astra Exploration, creating a team culture of commitment towards integrity, excellence, and value creation.
