CV/Resume Details
1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]

Please allow me to briefly introduce myself. I’m a qualified Senior Geological Observer who has gained over 15 years experience in offshore basin analysis, subsurface analysis and diamond exploration with De Beers Marine, the company leading the search for offshore diamonds in the world.
A successful track record is offered in achieving challenging geological goals and objectives, communication at all levels, training of personnel, creative and innovative problem solving and administration.
Over the course of this period, my responsibilities have included; observing; recording and interpreting geological data from offshore Marine deposits, to provide information for geological mapping and evaluation of the ore deposit also to assist in ensuring that mine and plant efficiency occurs.
Other duties included development and maintenance of an Access Database to manage this dataset; specifically integration of data with ArcGIS. In short, I make sure the Senior Geologist and other project managers have the data they need to do analysis and make decisions.

I am interested in working in a high-energy, results-driven environment. I believe that any of my references would confirm that I have excellent data management and processing skills and that I am willing to do what it takes to get the job done.

Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.

• Implements new knowledge by keeping abreast of developments within the industry
• Advises mining tool operators of geological hazards and other adverse conditions that would affect mining efficiency through (i) screen monitoring, (ii) communication of geological fact pack data, and (iii) geophysical interpretation (of side scan sonar, seismic profiles and swath bathymetry).
• Logging of geology
• Geological reporting
• Compilation and interpretation of geological data
• Working within strict Safety, Security, Health and Environment rules
• Identification, interpretation and analysis of samples and data
• Inhabiting

Mining monitoring

• Ensures effective clean-up through monitoring and advising on drilling progress
• Monitors and advises on drill over or under penetration by geological observation of screens, footwall identification and interpretation of geological data.
• Ensures plant recovery efficiency by monitoring carry-over, screen blinding, waste management, and any other problems that could affect efficiency.
• Advises mining tool operators of geological hazards and other adverse conditions that would affect mining efficiency through (i) screen monitoring, (ii) communication of geological fact pack data, and (iii) geophysical interpretation (of sidescan sonar, seismic profiles and swath bathymetry).
• Identifies and advises on possible drill bit blockages by interpreting screen gravel volumes in conjunction with all the geological data

Geological Consulting

• Sources, reads and understands the geological project reports written by the Resource Geologists, prior to mining
• Establish a basic understanding of the plant layout and gravel flow, and the functions of any new metallurgical equipment (such as the IPJ).
• Possess an up-to-date knowledge of pops, carat factor, predicted carats recovered and RVCR, actual carats recovered and RvCR.
• Possess a complete understanding of the daily PPF report, and the vessel target goals (especially rate).
• Conduct ongoing comparisons of the geological trends with respect to daily pops, carats, RvCRs, and rate.
• Spatially map, in Arcview 9.2, the current mining parameters and results with the adjacent historical mining parameters and results.
• Identify and interpret all trends evident in the data wrt vessel deployment, tool deployment, plant configuration, environmental delays, rate attained, RvCR attained, grade recovered, etc.
• Identify and observe all aspects of the operation that impact on, or are impacted upon, by the geology. Such aspects include; drill bit interaction on the seabed, drill bit parameter changes such as drill bit size, the suitability of new plant technology to different geological terrains, monitoring and interpreting ROV dive footage, etc.
• Interpret these observations, in conjunction with the geological data, and translate this knowledge into recommendations on efficiency improvement.
• These recommendations fall within three spheres (i) how to improve recoveries, rate, yield and panel selection (VM) (ii) evaluating the extraction and processing efficiency by comparing the post -mined results with the estimates (Eval) (iii) assessing the accuracy of the original geological / estimation model (Prod. Geol).
• Convey these recommendations to the relevant customers (i) Vessel Management, by informal communication with the Driller and MPS, as well as involvement in the production meetings by means of geological presentations (ii) Evaluation, by the daily phone-in as well as informal telephonic and email communication (iii) Production Geology, by the daily phone-in, daily geo report, as well as informal telephonic and email communication.
