Welcome to Irus Consulting

the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”  – Marcel Proust.

Adapting Sun Tzu: exploration strategy without the right tactics is the slowest route to discovery; exploration tactics without strategy is the noise of failure. Mineral exploration, discovery and mining is pathway involving lots of science and engineering and luck. I have visited many countries and seen a lot of rocks and most importantly mineralised rocks. In my Blog I share my passion for exploration and try to remove some of the mystery.  You may stumble across some insights and interesting ideas embedded in my observations.  If not I hope you still enjoy the stories and the magpie’s snippets of information.

Irus Consulting provides strategic and practical management advice and guidance to its clients. Time is a precious commodity. It ebbs away relentlessly for us all. Life is too short so I try as best I can to avoid the mediocre. I like quality exploration projects with passionate champions which together make the extraordinary possible. It requires belief and persistence and some magical realism combined with noodles of luck.  What a curious investment proposition?
