Just a quick post to everyone to let you know that I am off to Sierra Leone for a week to hopefully begin a new relationship with a group of local gold miners in the centre of the country.

This is a really exciting time for me as for a number of years I have been one step removed from the miners whilst working with ARM and FLO on developing the commercial realities of the market.

Time to get hands dirty again, work with new people, rise to new challenges and be inspired again by the silent majority. The meek will inherit the earth.

As I will have little or no internet access you will be able to follow my trip via twitter @gregvalerio

I will also be filming, so will attempt to get a short movie up in my return
