DVP for Somerset and Bristol, Mark Howson (65-74), returned to the School on Friday 6th May to give our upper sixth a lecture entitled ‘An International Career in the Mining Industry’. Having spent almost 40 years as a mining geologist, Mark’s work with Rio Tinto has taken him across the globe to 22 countries in six continents. Talking about his travels and experiences, Mark gave the boys a fascinating insight into the industry.

Mark is now semi-retired as a consultant with copper, gold and industrial mineral projects. Many thanks to him for coming all the way from Bristol to share his knowledge with the next generation.

If you would like to return to the School to give a talk to the boys, please email the OB Club Office on obclub@bedfordschool.org.uk we would be most pleased to help arrange this for you.
