Exploration Geologist AMA - Fire Away!

Howdy – waving

Pretty excited to be doing my first reddit AMA and with a bunch of geos and interested folks. I am happy to answer as many geology, exploration, and industry related questions as possible. I will be inviting some friends here from another thread, you know who you are, behave yourselves, keep questions on topic, and welcome to the wonderful world of geo nerds!

I am an exploration geologist focusing on hydrothermal gold, VMS and to a lesser extent Au Cu porphyry deposits. I have worked in the Alaskan coastal mountains, northern Hudson Bay region, Middle East, the Ecuadorian Amazon, South Pacific islands, and done academic research in the Marianas trench region.

I am currently located in the South Pacific. I have a H.Bsc with a double major in Geology with a rather boring thesis on long range structure analysis in alkali infused silica glass – spoiler, it doesn’t exist. I also have independent contributions to academic papers on sea floor VMS deposits that will hopefully one day see the light of day.

With the industries ups and downs I also work as a yacht captain, and first mate on an offshore ocean racing sailboat. This is the only thing that has gotten me through the industry downturns while keeping a smile on my face.

Some of my work areas include:

β€’ Field work has been focused with junior and grass roots companies designing and implementing all facets of exploration programs looking for and developing hydrothermal Au, VMS and Au porphyry prospects.

β€’ A few years with producing Au mines production logging, undertaking brown and green fields exploration as well as some underground mapping.

β€’ Government work developing mineral databases, statistical modelling, deposit validation and input to assist in creating investment based junior sectors.

β€’ Academic work developing a knowledge driven approach to targeting current and paleo VMS deposits in the Marianas back arc basin (near the Marianas trench: That deep place the pseudo emo band is from).

Geology is a wonderful and ongoing adventure that keeps my squirrely brain occupied, my thirst for exploring the world quenched and my ego always in check.

Fire away!

How accurate is mine geologist's prediction?

Mine geologists make many prediction about underground geology. For example, shape and the amount of orebodies, dip and strike of a fault.

I know this kind of predictions are not 100% accurate and the accuracy varies by companies. But, could you provide me the average accuracy based on your personal experiences?

Any Environmental Geologists out there?

I need advice..

I have a Geology Degree and want to study further. I want to study towards becoming an Environmental Geologist but I'm not sure if it is the right direction to go. I also don't know much about it. I did a short course in Environmental Management. Is it similar? Do you focus on drawing up EIA's? Or is there other things you can also do?

A geologist who could care less about rocks, what are my prospects?

So I’m a geologist grad (just a few days ago!!) and I honestly could give 2 s***s about rocks. I don’t find them extremely interesting or cool to research. I don’t have a rock collection and have 0 interest in starting one. However I do care about what use they are, how they form, what they entail and how they can be utilized or understood to better our lives. I think geology can play a major role in solving global problems in terms of energy supply and the environment but all my professors and classmates ever seem to care about are only these damned rocks and how cool they look. Am I on the wrong path for a good career?

Boots: We are coming to the time to start putting boots on the ground again in the northern hemisphere, would you help a new and upcoming geologist out and recommend some boots?

It's that time of year where I am looking at new boots to break in and I was wondering what you all swear by. Personally I've been trying several brands and so far have enjoyed stuff from the Columbia brand the most, but it never lasts more than a season in my experience. So I was wondering what you all use.

Add on: Looking for some non-steel toe boots. There was a recent thread on here with steel toes specifically. If someone is interested in that thread here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/geologycareers/comments/k6qnxc/favorite_work_boots/

I'm a former Mine Geologist in Canada, AMA!

Hi all,

I've been a geologist for the last 7ish years working across Canada in exploration and mining.

My educational background is a science degree with a geology specialization. My experiences have ranged from early and mid stage exploration for both diamonds and gold, as well as early, mid, and closure stages of diamond and gold mining operations respectively.

I started my career while still in University, with summer jobs that involved a lot of digging of dirt into buckets, to steadily gaining experience and responsibilities and becoming a licensed P.Geo.

I feel my AMA will be most beneficial to current students thinking about a career in exploration/mining or those early in that career. I will aim to be as honest as possible as this type of work environment and career has just as many negatives as it does positives.

So let's get the ball rolling and AMA!

Upper management opportunities as a geologist in an engineering firm?

Looking over the senior management profiles for many geotechnical engineering firms, I don’t know if I have ever seen a geologist make it to principal or senior management levels. I have seen hydrogeologists (like me) make it to upper management but they tend to have engineering backgrounds. I am early in my career, so this is not really a concern.... more a curiosity, but does anyone have any anecdotes of Geoscientists making it to senior management in an engineering firm?
