Early Days

My initial experience was with the Uranerz group in the 1970`s and 80`s where I worked on numerous uranium projects. Working my way up to project geologist on:


I took a break and headed for Germany and South Tirol (Italy) and wrote a doctorial thesis on the sedimentology and mineralogy of U-Cu and Pb-Zn in sandstones guided by Professor Wopfner of Cooper Basin fame.

Back to work - 1988 onwards

After a bit of gold at Marvel Loch --- it was back as a senior uranium geologist with PNC Australia firstly in the Patterson Province targeting the Kintyre unconformity model and later in the Harts Ranges near Alice Springs targeting the metasomatic model.
