I've spent plenty of time at university and in education, both working and "working" (as I put it earlier).

Most of the people I have worked with are under the impression they are exceedingly hard workers. The words "Ivory Tower" and "Bubble" immediately spring to mind.

I am sorry that you are not having any luck.

Only suggestion I can offer is to try to source and locate UK companies that are involved in those particular sectors and try emailing them direct.

Most contributers to this site are hobby mine explorers and mining historians, regardless of all the rants that you seeing, if someone on here could help you, they would.

This kind of comment really irks me, under the NCB we where world leaders in safe coal production, "good old Maggie", and Scargill, representing the NUM had a personality clash and really f*cked it up, this is too long ago to regain now, but it is refreshing to know that other countries are still asking for our advice, even though the expertise is passed.

Grandad a lead miner,

me, flourspar miner,


I wasn't having a pop at how things were done in the past or in the future, just saying that the present Government needs a kick up the arse to promote mining in this country again. It is one way to generate wealth.

A quick search on google on "UK gas exploration consultants" reveals several companies that advise in the areas you mention. My impression is that there are not that many experts on modern gas exploration on this site. Consultants are probably more likely to want to give lectures than research organisations and other private mining companies.

This seems to be a generic enquiry sent to every match from a word search. It's clearly from someone who doesn't understand that they are asking for several different areas of speciality, or us simply casting the net to see what comes up.

I get enquiries of this sort all the time, anyone doing contract work in the energy or extractive sectors does, and ignore them completely.
