Front Cover
Australian eBook Publisher, May 21, 2015 - Business & Economics - 200 pages

 Unearthing wisdom – in the widest sense as well as unearthing riches from the earth’s crust – has enabled mankind to progress and improve our way of life. Continuing the process is vital. More than ever, we are faced with an increasing rate of change and thus that on-going need to ‘keep up’. If we keep ourselves involved with the search process the rewards can be considerable. The contents of this book are designed to help people, whether they are just starting out, progressing along the road or at the end of their journey.

The twenty articles deliver much accumulated wisdom into the reader’s hands. The Foreword by John Murray gives the reader an outline of much accumulated experience, observations on current day methods as well as some suggestions for the future.

All up, the texts are a concise and valuable contribution to the process of passing on wisdom, providing suggestions for the leaders of today and inspiring the leaders in the future.

Text book wisdom is one thing but the wisdom gained from hard earned experience by people applying themselves to activities in exploration, mining, processing of minerals and then selling the output paints a lot more colour on to a broad canvas.
