About

About me…

My name is Carly Leonida. Welcome to The Intelligent Miner.

I am a UK-based technical writer and editor and have spent the past decade writing for and managing some of the mining sector’s leading publications. I’m often asked by businesses to share my knowledge of the industry and, in 2019, I established The Intelligent Miner in order to do just that.

In addition to running my own consultancy, I also serve as European editor at US-based publishing house Mining Media International, contributing to titles such as Engineering & Mining Journal and Coal Age*.

I hold a first-class degree in geology and geography from the University of Brighton, and was named one of the most influential women in mining in 2016 by Clear Creek Media.

What I offer…

The blog

The Intelligent Miner blog focuses exclusively on the newest mining technologies, delivering both original content and carefully curated articles from across the globe to your phone or laptop.

If you are interested in contributing an article or collaborating on a sponsored project you can contact me here.

Editorial services & marketing

I offer independent editorial services for companies operating in and around the mining sector. These include: ghost writing, production of blog posts and whitepapers, feature writing for B2C and consumer publications (both print and digital) and influencer marketing.

I am also available for interviews, panel discussions and conference speaking opportunities. If you are interested please call or drop me a line.

Consultancy & education

I love sharing my knowledge and, depending on your interests, can run sessions by the hour to help boost your own know-how and that of your team.

Perhaps your company is looking to buy some new equipment or launch a new product? I can help with your market research. If you have employees in non-technical roles who would like to bring their understanding of the mining sector up to speed, I can run an educational session for them. Or maybe you run a publication yourself and would like to learn how to embrace digital publishing and grow your brand through social media?

For rates and availability, please get in touch.
