Geological Society of London – Geoscientist – September, 2012

A particular strength lies in linking financial, technical and environmental aspects, giving the reader a clear picture of how and why things are done the way they are. Anyone reading it will have gained a very good introduction to the business and will be able to enter into informed debate on aspects of an industry which underpins our everyday life. 

The mining business is extremely complex and involves a wide variety of geological professionals working alongside others with technical skills. An overview of the industry, explaining concepts and bringing an appreciation of how its various parts link up, has long been needed.This book has the wide-ranging ambition to fill this gap, and it does it admirably.
