Harmen is a geologist and helicopter pilot with more than 40 years of experience in helicopter operations and mineral exploration around the world. In addition to geological expertise in a wide variety of deposit models and geological environments, he has flown various types of helicopters in a diverse variety of commercial, exploration and geophysical applications. It is this unique combination of experience as a geologist and helicopter pilot that inspired him to develop simpler and more efficient geophysical survey methods. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Saint Mary's University in 1981.
Jenny is a graduate of the University of Calgary geophysics program. She is skilled at airborne survey design, data collection, data processing, reporting, and QA/QC procedures using advanced software in complex geophysical environments. She is highly skilled in magnetic, electromagnetic, radiometric, and gravity survey design and implementation, software development, system design and testing, data processing, and advanced interpretation. She is a member of APEGBC, SEG, BCGS, and KEG.
Wendell is Precision’s electronics specialist, where his responsibilities include ensuring the trouble-free operation and optimum performance of our geophysical systems as well as R+D initiatives on new survey technologies. Prior to joining Precision, Wendell worked at Simon Fraser University’s (SFU) Laboratory for Alternative Energy Conversion as a laboratory engineer on waste-heat driven air conditioning systems. He also spent 10 years in the Physics department at SFU as a graduate student and postdoctoral fellow, working on 9 Tesla superconducting magnets, dielectric cavity resonators, scanning hall probe microscopes, and ferromagnetic resonance measurements with coplanar waveguides. This laboratory scale experience combined with his PhD and MSc degrees in Physics from SFU give him a thorough understanding of the physical principles of geophysical technologies and data collection.
Graham has more than 40 years of experience in airborne geophysical applications. He was previously Research Geophysicist and Chief Geophysicist for Normandy and Newmont in Australia, where he led the team that developed some of the world's first helicopter-towed time domain electromagnetic survey systems. His advanced technologies and methods have been used in mineral discoveries around the world. When Newmont took over Normandy in 2004, Graham continued R&D programs in airborne geophysics with GeoSolutions Pty. Ltd. Graham graduated from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 1973 and is a recognized expert in the design, development, and operation of advanced airborne TDEM technologies.
Shawn graduated from the University of Alberta with a B.Sc. in geology and a M.Sc. in geophysics. His thesis work investigated the magnetic properties of various rocks from Canada and Siberia, and he is a specialist in the determination of shear zones from aeromagnetic data. He has worked across northern Canada and Alaska in ground and airborne geophysical applications in a wide variety of geological environments and mineral deposit styles. Shawn enjoys working for Precision as a helicopter system operator in addition to applying his skills in geophysical data processing and interpretations.
Thomas earned his Master’s degree in Geophysics from the School of Engineering Geophysics at the University of Strasbourg, France. Through his education and industry experience working in Canada and Australia, Thomas developed excellent skills for data processing, constrained and unconstrained inversions, 3D modelling, data integration, interpretation, reporting, and geophysical survey design. Thomas likes to be involved directly with all aspects of a project to ensure maximum value in the delivered geophysical product. Thomas is fluent in French and English.
