Most of these courses are suited to both technical and non-technical professionals involved in exploration management.

Five one-day modules are offered as individual courses.

Nick Franey taught the Business and Financial Management subject of the JCU Masters of Mineral Geoscience (MGM) since 2016, working with Andy White until Andy retired.

Nick is an exploration geologist with a broad range of experience, from grassroots to advanced project (feasibility study) and near-mine operations. He has explored for most types of gold and base metal deposit in a variety of geological terranes, in more than 20 countries, on three continents.
