Course "Extracting information from geochemical data" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Most specialists strongly recommend to sample every meter of the drill core or of a trench and to use multielement analysis, rather than just asking the laboratory for gold test. There are also many other types of analysis that are ignored by the industry. But even when such analyses are requested, most of the time the fed geologist is not well trained on the necessary techniques and methods to extract all the information contained in the data.

This seminar will teach you what to ask and how to extract all the important information of your data

Why should you attend:

You, as a person making decisions on where to drill or how to manage your exploration budget, will benefit from this seminar that will show you all types of analyses that can be requested to help you in your exploration goal- finding the new ore body.

You will also learn how to extract all the important information of your data, including the use of compositional data analysis.

President, Valls Geoconsultant

As a professional geologist with thirty years in the mining industry, I have extensive geological, geochemical, and mining experience, managerial skills, and a solid background in research techniques, and training of technical personnel. I am fluent in English, French, Spanish, and Russian. I have been involved in various projects world-wide (Canada, Africa, Russia, Indonesia, the Caribbean and Central and South America). Projects included from regional reconnaissance to local mapping, diamond drilling and RC-drilling programs, open pit and underground mapping and sampling, geochemical sampling and interpretation, and several exploration techniques pertaining to the search for diamonds, PGM, gold, nickel, silver, base metals, industrial minerals, oil & gas, and other magmatic, hydrothermal, porphyritic, VMS and SEDEX ore deposits. Special strengths are related to acquisition of new properties, geochemical and geological studies, management and organization, geomathematical analysis and modelling, compositional data analysis, structural studies, database design, QA&QC studies, exploration studies and writing technical reports. P.Geo. registered in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
