Paul Burton R.I.P. updated with funeral details

We are sad to report the passing of Paul Burton, Camborne School of Mines graduate, erstwhile colleague, long time presenter and moderator at many gold conferences and specialist on gold and gold stocks.  Paul passed away in Cornwall UK on March 15th, after a long term battle with cancer which had returned aggressively after a period of remission.

Some years ago, when I was MD of Mining Journal, we hired Paul as editor of our gold publications and he quickly made his mark as an important contributor/expert on gold mining and gold companies worldwide setting him on course for his subsequent career.  He took the publications with him as part of a severance package and the then World Gold Analyst and World Gold – which had developed from Mining Journals’ Quarterly Review of Gold Stocks, and the International Gold Mining Newsletter (originally started by yours truly!) – were important and relevant reading within the global gold community.

After a spell with GFMS as one of their gold experts (he was managing Director of GFMS World Gold) and following the take-over by Thomson Reuters, Paul became an independent analyst, setting up his own company, Piran Mining Research With his own company, he conducted specialist research, mostly on gold, for a number of companies as well as continuing to publish World Gold Analyst which continued to  provide independent, online research on, and evaluations of,  selected gold companies worldwide.

Paul will be sadly missed within the global gold community.

Funeral is at Penryn Chapel, Penryn, Cornwall on April 4th at 11.30 am

    Lawrie,
    Thank you for sharing this. I was unaware he was suffering from cancer. He was a true gentleman and excellent analysts of the gold mining scene.
    Reminds one to enjoy life while you have the opportunity.
    Best,
    Martin
