What would you like to read in 2022? 

Hey everyone, how’s 2021 treating you thus far?

It’s that time of year again, when we start to think about what you might like to read over the next 12-18 months.

If you’ve been with us a while, you’ll know the drill. Send me your ideas for topics, no matter how weird and wonderful. As long as they’re mining related, there are no silly suggestions.

If you’re new to The Intelligent Miner then welcome, it’s nice to have you here! 

As a consumer everyone is a stakeholder in the mining process, whether they realise it or not. This publication is all about making mining relatable for masses and helping those within the industry who are thinking outside of the box to make mineral and metal extraction more sustainable, share their work with the world. 

Each month, content on the blog revolves around a common theme. This month – August 2021 – we’re looking at maintaining a social license to operate. Next month, in September, it’s all about creating agility from an operational level all the way to the boardroom.

And each year, usually around now, I ask newsletter subscribers what or who they would like to read about going forward. Use your imagination; if you can think it up, I can research and write it. I’ve attached this year’s editorial calendar so you can get a feel for what we do. And send me your ideas. I’m looking forward to receiving your suggestions.

Enjoy the rest of the summer/winter, depending upon where you’re based, and I’ll see you in a few weeks!
