Stuart Burns

Editor-at-large, Co-Founder - MetalMiner
As Editor-at-large for MetalMiner, Stuart was drawn into the metals business by a fascination with metallurgy. To a struggling science grad in the 1980s, commodity traders seemed to make very big bucks. It was only as the years went by that Stuart’s visits to producers and consumers in far-flung (and occasionally hostile) parts of the world instilled in him a more refined appreciation for the wider delights of being a physical metals expert. Stuart used his scientific training and business experience to communicate effectively with engineer and buyer, local politician and corporate manager. Today, he couldn’t imagine being in any other industry, as few match the metals markets for excitement and global reach.
