Today’s Strictly Boardroom column, with Allan Trench, on, looks at the ideal composition of a mining industry board, via a theoretical case-study of a board spill proposal by a major shareholder: “Boardroom spill at Aussie gold miner: Vote now“. Readers can choose to stick with the original board, elect the proposed new board members, or some combination. Readers are also encouraged to identify other areas where the board may need strengthening.

Or should Angela, the self-made business women; Rebecca, a leader in the new generation of mining engineers; Joshua, an aggressive junior-mining deal-maker; and Chris, an expert new-generation Australian geoscientist, be brought in to freshen things up?
