Robert Adamson
GeologistGeologist

Bob Adamson commenced consulting in economic geology in 1993 following 25 years in technical and management positions with the CRA, Newmont, BP Minerals and Cluff groups.
He is experienced in the exploration and mining of base metal and gold deposits throughout Australia, New Zealand, southern and eastern Africa, northern Asia and northern Canada and has had significant involvement in the discovery and development of gold and base metal mines in several of these regions. He is also experienced in diamond and semi-precious stone exploration (especially eastern Australia).

Bob specialises in exploration appraisals and project management with emphasis on best-practice drilling and sampling procedures, the recording of data and the development of practical geological models of mineral deposits. He conducts geological audits of mineral resources and ore reserves for the appraisal and/or valuation of exploration and mining properties, with a focus on the geological aspects that impact mine profitability.
Clients include major mining companies, merchant banks and legal firms, and junior exploration companies in Australia and internationally. He presently provides part-time executive services to Klondike Source Limited, a gold exploration company listed on the Newcastle Stock Exchange.
His assignments extend to technical appraisals and valuations of exploration and mining properties in satisfaction of ASX and ASIC requirements, and as an expert witness in mining litigation.
