Experienced with both exploration and mine geology. Supervisory experience on exploration drill rigs in central Montana, southern Idaho, and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Provided contract core logging services to the Stillwater mine at Nye, Montana, and served as Senior Mine Geologist at Montana Resources in Butte, Montana. Have also conducted various types of research on pavement design and written numerous research reports for the Montana Department of Transportation.
Organized and scheduled a two-week sampling and testing program around Montana, and have continued distress surveys on these road segments for the past 5 years. Used statistics to compare performance of two different classes of pavements to determine the most cost-effective construction practice. Designed and priced out reserve drilling program, put program out to bid, and supervised the drilling and completion of the project. Visited and evaluated a number of prospect submittals, and completed reports on why they were not good acquisitions.
Organized and scheduled a two-week sampling and testing program for local calibration of a new pavement design method around Montana. Distress surveys on these road segments for have been continued for the past 5 years. Used statistics to compare performance of two different classes of pavements to determine the most cost-effective construction practice. Assisted with report on impact of oilfield traffic in eastern Montana with ARCView. Did extensive field testing of dynamic cone penetrometer to characterize different soils classes and analyzed results.
