Part 3 of our Project Management series, first published by Snowden in 2011, looks at the importance of timing in project planning and knowing what should be done when.
Snowden would like to congratulate our client, Horizonte Minerals PLC, on the posting an initial NI43-101 compliant resource estimate for its Vermelho nickel-cobalt project in Brazil.
Part 2 of our Project Management series, first published by Snowden in 2010, focuses on the importance of planning in a successful project. We have decided to republish this series to show that whilst technology has advanced, basic principles and processes are just as important when ensuring project success.
In 2010/11, Snowden ran a series of articles in our newsletter on Project Management. The focus of the series was to illustrate the practical use of project management processes, tools, and skills to achieve project success. We have decided to share this series with you as a reminder that whilst the tools and technologies may advance, the basic principles of project management will always remain the same.
We would like to congratulate our clients Neometals Ltd on the announcement of an updated Mineral Resource Estimate for their Barrambie Ti-V Project in Western Australia.

We congratulate Kore Potash Plc on their admission to trading on AIM and JSE.
