Combining a wealth of knowledge from more than 50 contributors, the Mineral Consultant’s Handbook (MCH) provides useful and practical advice on a range of relevant topics for those working as, or considering becoming, a minerals consultant. The MCH is centred around principles and while primarily aimed at minerals professionals navigating the early stages of becoming a consultant, this handbook will also be a useful tool for more experienced professionals.
The publication is made up of 18 chapters along with an extensive collection of useful documents and templates included as appendices.
The text was initially drafted and released in digital format by John F Dunlop FAusIMM(CP), a well-respected minerals consultant with more than thirty years of experience, on behalf of the Minerals Industry Consultants Association (MICA), a society affiliated with the AusIMM which merged with the AusIMM Consultant’s Society (ConSoc) in 2018. Contributions and additions to this initial draft were received and compiled to produce this second edition, which now joins the prestigious collection of AusIMM monographs.
