Hi Emma, Thank you for submitting this proposal. I know from first hand experience that it is often very hard to obtain the true opinions and thoughts of community groups to a mining project (or any project that offers potential for jobs and community investment), when there are so many perspectives to view its implications. In the case of many geologists and mining engineers (of which I am one), during the prospecting and exploration stages, we are the first point of contact for many indigenous communities surrounding the site. Our training in FPIC is very limited, and so I can see that having a framework and tool to assist us in managing expectations through FPIC will be immensely valuable.
