Small church

Today’s Strictly Boardroom article on, with Allan Trench is on mine project evaluation practice and entitled: “2020 mining project evaluation: Take me to church“. It is generally accepted that mine project evaluation is a source of concern in the industry. There are several ‘churches’ of thinking about how it can be improved: the ‘Temperance Movement’ takes a regulatory approach, the ‘Assumptionists’ focus on better and more data inputs, whilst the ‘Methodists” advocate for new evaluation techniques. In reality it is likely to require the efforts of each of these constituent churches to get mine project evaluation where it needs to be. A broad church is required.
