Suggested Types of Projects for Tim Hopwood:


1.       Successful track record for discovery of new reserves around mines with depleted reserves or around old mine areas. Extension of mine life, even when others have given up long ago.

2.       Good money can be made by acquiring an option over a suitable old mine area with a goal of discovery of new reserves in the vicinity of that deposit by exploration.

3.       Field Mapping and Structural Mapping to discover new ore deposits.

4.       Successful track record for generating new mining projects.

5.       Problem Solver.

6.       Regional identification of high probability targets for very large deposits, using ERTS, magnetics,gravity, geological environments.

7.       Acquire and develop a Russian gold mine. (Detailed Knowledge of Russian data sources, Government and Commercial Contacts, opportunities).

8.       Build up a data base on mineral deposits in Russia (my wife is a highly experienced commercial and technical Russian translator, Hopwood speaks and can translate Russian).

9.       Hopwood has a collection of photographs, maps, figures and reports and samples, from over 300 mines, which can be used to compile a digitized format teaching course on Geological environments of Ore deposits (similar to the original successful Australian Mineral Foundation Course). The original documented sample set (together with polished thin sections) the basis for this former successful AMFcourse is now stored at Data Metallogenica, now serviced by Dr Peter Laznika and Dr Kerry O’Sullivan at the former AMF Site in Adelaide.

10.    Hopwood has visited and collected relevant literature and notes of the critical role of geology in the selection of premier-cru vineyard sites in both the Bordeaux and Burgundy (Baune) Districts in France. There are very specific geological factors which influence the quality and flavor (and the price) of wines produced from theses areas. These same factors also appear to operate in Australia. This knowledge can substantially reduce the cost and time of establishing new high quality vineyards.
