Pam Rohal joined Life Cycle Geo in November 2023 as a Senior Geochemist. She has over 20 years of experience in mining geochemistry evaluations, including geochemical modeling, closure evaluations and material characterizations. She has extensive experience in mine site permitting, operations, closure, and reclamation planning with a focus on characterization and treatment of acid rock drainage and metals leaching impacts. Her expertise in geochemical modeling consists of a wide range of complex water quality and mine waste issues including waste rock and tailings seepage, pore water analysis, acid and neutral mine drainage, pit lake modeling and prediction, and underground mine inflow. She is fluent in a range of water balance and geochemical modeling platforms and has extensive experience in mine water balance modeling and combining GoldSim and PHREEQC to simulate mine operational and closure modeling to optimize strategies for mine water decision-making. Pam has worked extensively in the United States and abroad. She has a master’s degree in Geochemistry/Hydrology from the University of Virginia and bachelor’s degrees in Geology and Chemistry from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. Residing in Evergreen, Colorado with her husband and two daughters, she enjoys mountain biking, backcountry skiing, and camping with the family in her free time.
