The Changing Face of Mineral Exploration — A People Story

AUTHORS: Thompson, J.F.H.

ABSTRACT: Exploration has seen vast changes over the last twenty years following a period of low metal prices and more recently high metal prices. The net result is a shortage of qualified people and the expectation that many more will retire in the next ten years. While there have been a number of technical advances in exploration, qualified and motivated people with a wide range of skills and interests are more important than ever. The people challenge will be the defining issue for the industry and educators over the next ten or more years.
