Company: Qualitica Consulting Inc.
Qualitica Consulting Inc. 2020 to present – President, CEO, Principal Geologist
During my summers of mapping in the field, I realized early on the importance of a properly validated geological database as the foundation of any project. From the early days of FNX Mining Inc. back in 2002, when old projects and mines were acquired from INCO (now Vale) and being re-evaluated, it was all about ensuring the information was valid and reliable. Analytical quality control (QAQC) became a primary focus for me but also for the company. Working with great mentors over the years, QAQC at all levels became my niche, from greenfield soil samples to mine reconciliation from a sample tower and everything in between. After 15 years of practical experience at various mine sites and exploration projects, I joined Analytical Solutions Ltd to broaden my QAQC experience around the world and also to help clients with their site-specific issues. As a natural progression to this work and following my entrepreneurial instinct, I co-founded Qualitica Consulting Inc. in 2020 with a clear focus on practical analytical quality control during the entire life cycle of a mining project.
