This month an article co-written with Nick Gardiner (Curtin University) on the minerals exploration potential of Myanmar was published in the AusIMM Bulletin. The article is entitled “Is Myanmar about to experience an exploration boom?“. The piece covers recent political events, such as the victorious election of Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League of Democracy (NLD) party; the history of the country and its mining sector; associated environmental and social concerns; the improving business environment; the sudden rise of the country’s tin industry; and obviously its geological potential.
