About

Short bio

Kylie Williams is a communications specialist and geoscientist. After working on base metal and diamond exploration projects in Australia, North America and Europe for almost a decade, she turned to science writing and copy creation.

Kylie now writes about the science and technology that make mineral exploration and mining more efficient and sustainable. She is passionate about the human side of the industry too, especially sharing stories about keeping workers and communities safe and healthy, protecting the environment, and building an equitable and socially responsible industry.

“Writing is hard for every last one of us — straight white men included. Coal mining is harder. Do you think miners stand around all day talking about how hard it is to mine for coal? They do not. They simply dig.” – Cheryl Strayed
