I have worked on a range of projects throughout Queensland and NSW, including a number within the Sydney Basin, Clarence-Moreton Basin, Surat Basin and Bowen Basin. I am experienced in running multiple rig exploration programmes and highly experienced in core and chip logging. I have also mentored graduate geologist to become proficient in core logging and in the management of drilling rigs. My wide ranging experience in exploration and mining operations ensures that I can achieve your organisations objectives for current and future projects in an efficient and cost effective manner. As part of my professional devlopement I am learning web development and design using the web standards of HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and PHP. I have founded the digital magazine Earth Citizen Magazine and I work on the magazine in my spare time, submiting a long form essays once a week. Also thats me in the video, working on a wireline drilling rig in the Qweensland outback.
