Item description for Your Reserves Or Mine? by James Platt...

Boys, let's hear it for the Good Guys! Their turn has come! Here is healthy distrust in the machinations of corporate politicians and associated hacks who flew-in on them for lunch, flew-off-the-handle in the afternoon and flew-out again before sunset. Here is the neon-spangled night of head office generated euphoria followed by the grey dawn of reality over a field of disillusion. Here are the Bad Guys folding tents, hunting down sacrificial lambs and claiming the bounty. Here also is wry humour, sharp insight, and not a little cynicism to spice up the menu. Here are tales of journeys made to some of the world's more remote and exotic corners. Here are adventures shared with a spectrum of peoples both wild and wonderful in their cultural diversity. Here are the highs and lows of endeavour at the sharp end of the business of mineral exploration. Here is that ultimate objective of (ugh!) estimating a sound ore reserve capable of supporting a mining project. Here are feet in the dirt, backs to the wind and faces to the elements, where extremes of heat, cold, depth and altitude all too often ruled the roost. Open the book boys! Let's all give the Good Guys a great big hand!

Reviews - What do customers think about Your Reserves Or Mine??

Description of the Book  Oct 29, 2004
The book is a personal account, spiced with wry humour and served up with a touch of irony on the side, of adventures and misadventures in the life of a geologist employed by a celebrated mining company, the imperial ambitions of which self-styled colossus were inspired by two far-famed masters, the first an avuncular multinational oil giant and the other a majestically entrepreneurial South African Mining House. The book describes the thrills and spills of journeys undertaken to remote places; vagaries of deportment in both field operations and the mystic art of business travel; executive career-building imperatives, (come what may); pleasures and pitfalls of working in a culturally diverse environment; the never-ending dilemma over whose side Head Office is really on; and corporate practices both benign and bizarre - while offering insights and opinions (quite as topical as they are pertinent) on all of the foregoing.
