Registered Professional Geoscientist (P.Geo.) – Province of British Columbia; Fellow of the Association of Applied Geochemists; Member of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences; Member of the Society of the Geochemical Society; Recipient of three distinguished awards in the applications of mathematical/statistical geosciences.
Eric has +35 years of experience in a range of geosciences disciplines including mineral exploration, geologic mapping, geochemical surveys and resource assessment. Eric is an internationally recognized expert in the evaluation and interpretation of geochemical survey data at continental, regional and camp scales. This includes geochemical data derived from rock/drill core, till, lake sediment, stream, soil and weathered materials geochemistry. His expertise has been used to identify and isolate areas of mineralization for a range of commodities including precious metal, diamond, base metal and uranium deposits. Eric employs the use of advanced statistical methods that include spatial analysis to characterize and validate geochemical processes associated with background lithologies, alteration assemblages and key mineralization signatures. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and has made many presentations at mineral industry conferences.
Eric’s studies and consultancies have included the following commodities and deposit types: Lode gold, volcanic-hosted massive sulphides, porphyry, intrusion and sedimentary hosted uranium, IOCG
Eric has carried out work in: Canada, Australia, USA, Ireland, Greenland, Argentina, Mexico, Indonesia, Middle East
He has extensive experience in statistical and modelling software including: R Statistical Modelling Environment, Quantum GIS, ENVI, ERMapper, ArcGIS
