Welcome friend! Spotlight mining first flickered into existence in 2018 as 'Spotlight Finland' on a jolly mining promo tour with Mawson Resources (now Mawson Gold) and the GTK (Geological Survey if Finland). We made some really cool videos, met some great people and then realised, in a vain attempt to get some free beers and see some reindeer, we'd stumbled upon a viable business niche.
Mining is thoroughly misunderstood by many and there are too few people working to communicate this in modern and accessible formats, there are even less people doing it with suitable qualifications and with honest referencing and bias declarations about their investments and motives for writing.
Liam, Teejo, Sam and Chris founded Spotlight Mining with the single goal of communicating economic geology and technical mineral exploration data honestly and at an accessible level to all.
Today Spotlight are a team of 12 enthusiastic mining and media professionals working globally in 7 languages. Our media team retain journalistic freedom as long as they continue to fact-check and reference their productions. Our technical writers all hold an MSc (or above) in a mining related subject, or significant work experience. Our Founder Liam invests personally into our corporate partners and refuses to pump/promote or support any companies he wouldn't invest in himself. Quite the opposite, he remains outspoken against such abuses of investor trust.
We have grown, but our goal of providing a wider audience with zero BS assessments of junior mining projects in terms of their team, resource potential and ESG management has only strengthened.
To honour our rootes, we have kept our original 'Spotlight Finland' logo design. We may be growing, but we won't forget where we came from and the friends who got us here. To all of you lovely people who've been part of the Spotlight adventure, our heartfelt thanks and support will always be yours.
