our team

VRM was established by Paul Dunbar and Deborah Lord in 2019 offering specialised consulting services in mineral asset valuation. Lynda Burnett joined VRM as an Associate in 2020.

Drawing on extensive, global exploration, mining, financial and governance expertise we provide technical, commodity specific expertise to assist clients in response to project requirements. We facilitate the cross over between technical and commercial, legal, accounting, corporate and strategic.

Our team offers objective, independent advice and are recognised practitioners and specialists under the VALMIN Code and competent persons under the JORC Code for most mining commodities. We work with our network of associates when we need to supplement our specialist skills.

We have published numerous independent reports to support listings and corporate transactions on stock exchanges globally, including the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
