    #68 - The BHP Xplor Program with Sonia Scarselli

    On this episode, we are joined by Sonia Scarselli, VP of BHP Xplor, a programme initiated by BHP that is dedicated to accelerating innovative, early-stage mineral exploration start-ups to find the critical resources necessary to drive the energy transition.

    The BHP Explor Program is searching around the globe for the next generation of explorers that are ready to think about the earth’s minerals systems differently to unlock copper, nickel, and other critical mineral deposits.

    #66 - Defining Discovery with Scott Briscoe (Part 1)

    How is something so fundamental to mineral exploration like the nature of what constitutes a discovery can have such a poorly accepted industry-wide definition?
    Maybe it is like the old adage, if you do not know which port you are sailing to, then no wind is favourable. If everyone can define discovery, then does that mean no one can define discovery?

    On this episode, we are joined by Scott Briscoe, and we try to understand what constitutes a discovery in mineral exploration

    #65 - Ideas That Must (Part 6)

    #65 - Ideas That Must (Part 6)

    At the end of our interviews, Steve and Ahmad always ask the guests two questions: what is something they think needs to live or be maintained in the mining industry at all costs; and what is something that needs to die or be jettisoned out of our industry?
    We thought it would be interesting to put together some of the responses we have received to those questions over the past year.
    So on this episode of Ideas that Must Die and Live in Mining, we are joined by, Mike Porter, Evren Pakyuz-Charrier, Tim Foden and Shaun Usmar.

Interested in resource exploration? Add this one to your list.

Excellent podcast discussing past present and future of the resource exploration industry. If you have any interest in resources add this one to your list. Everything from historic discovery stories to the philosophy of science. Well researched content with relevant guests presented in a format that is easy to listen to. Well done team! keep them coming.

Started off well...

Started off with useful, entertaining and interesting interviews and has now digressed into rubbish. This is the stuff that plagues the industry, all concepts and no rocks!

Let’s talk about discoveries, past and present!
