Self-employed since 1994 as Mining Engineering & Management Consultant/Contractor
By 2009 I was aware that ASX-listed mining and exploration companies were misleading ASX Compliance officers to publish reports that did not comply with the JORC Code. My efforts since then to correct this include a presentation to a visiting Chinese delegation on 'Management of exploration and development of mineral resources: How Chinese parties considering investing in Australian mining and/or exploration have been misled by JORC Code reports'. I cited published evidence from several cases where Chinese investors had suferred, including the still current, and particularly newsworthy, Citic-Mineralogy case.
