Mr C G Smith
As a mineral geologist with over 38 years experience in exploration and
development in Scotland I have a comprehensive knowledge of the nation's
resources and a good understanding of the many problems facing today's
extractive industry. Since retiring from the British Geological Survey
in 2000 I have cofounded Border Geo-Science, an independent consultancy,
based in central Scotland, that specialises in the provision of
geologically-based minerals information and advice to the private and
public sectors. I am also registered as an expert witness.
My priorities are to see the Institute grow at local level, to promote
greater interaction between local branches and societies, and to
encourage awareness, particularly at secondary education level, of the
need for minerals within a sustainable framework. In addition to serving
on Council, I am a member of the Applied Earth Science Editorial Board
and a past president of the Scotland Branch.
