An Australian resource geologist has launched, a new educational source aimed at leveling the playing field for most investors.

His new ebook, ‘Understanding Gold ‘ sets out the key features of economically viable mineral deposits and enable investors to confidently interpret company reports.

Australian based geologist Jason Barnett has spent the past decade working in underground and open-cut mines in Australia and Canada, producing top-level resource estimates for various commodities including gold, iron ore, copper and nickel.

“Mining companies release results all the time, and the truth is, those results can have a real, material impact on share price,” he explains.

“Unfortunately, their reports are often hard to understand if you’re not an engineer or an experienced trader, and can be quite misleading for the ordinary investor.

Being able to interpret these results can mean the difference between identifying a good potential investment and a bad one.”

Barnett says he developed the educational ebook after realising that even the most basic information about mining exploration was out of reach for most Australians.

“I couldn’t find any information that ordinary people could access; it’s usually the kind of detail that’s circulated in the upper echelons of resource companies or discussed behind board room doors.”

His has completed two ebooks, one on gold and the other on iron ore. Both are based on Barnett’s own mining and commodities experience, as well as a series of interviews with top-level mining executives around the world.

Many of the interview subjects spoke to Barnett, on the basis of anonymity, because they backed his vision of demystifying the resource exploration process for ordinary Australians.

“A lot of these guys are fed up with companies issuing reports written purely to impact their share price, rather than as part of the regulatory reporting process,” he explained.

“The ebooks are unbiased, simple, and easy to read, and can really give pretty much anyone an understanding of basic mining and resource exploration principles in an afternoon.” Sign up to get a sample of the ebooks.

He is currently working on two more ebooks, targeting copper and nickel commodities.

Barnett warns, however, that knowing how mining companies report their resource results and being able to interpret their discoveries does not necessarily guarantee a meal ticket in the stock market.

“There are still many factors that go into a profitable trade, like the company’s executive management, global conditions, and other pressures on the market day-to-day.”

Barnett’s ebooks are available online at for $49.95. Sign up to receive a free sample.
