Whilst employed as mine manager of a large-scale mineral sand dredging operation on North Stradbroke Island, he obtained the statutory qualifications for a 1st Class Mine Managers Certificate of Competency under the Queensland Mining Act.

On successful completion of the Yarraman Project, he managed operational support projects for CRL in the role of projects and capital manager until 2003 when he became a consultant project manager for mine development projects. Since 2003, Mr McMurtrie has worked extensively on mineral sand, industrial minerals, and iron sand mine development projects from exploration, through the various stages of feasibility studies, government approvals, project implementation, and commissioning. He now specialises in providing mine development and project management services to mining and exploration companies to assist the development of mineral resources through completion of feasibility studies, and the management of project implementation and commissioning.
