Dr John Bryan

John Bryan, now Executive Chairman, was Managing Director of McElroy Bryan Geological Services Pty Ltd (MBGS) from 1979 to 1997. He joined that consulting group in 1970 following several years of post graduate study and a period of regional mapping with the NSW Geological Survey. Since 1970 he has been involved with numerous coal exploration and coal mining ventures, mostly in Australia but also overseas. Recent assignments, personally undertaken by John, have included a large number of coal resources and reserves audits, assessments of coal exploration areas in NSW and Queensland, appraisals of operating coal mines and reviews of coal exploration programs.
Overall supervision of the geological staff at MBGS for 20 years, and assistance with a wide range of exploration programs, has provided a very comprehensive background of coal resources and reserves in Australia. Clients over the last 10 years have included major corporations involved with coal mining, small companies undertaking grassroots exploration, and consulting engineers.
