With over 30 years of experience, I have worked in mining and exploration, groundwater consulting and mine de-watering. I have completed many geological projects, including gold and platinum exploration and was fortunate to be involved with the initial exploration and start-up of the ultra-deep Northam Platinum mine and the low grade/high tonnage Tarkwa Open-cast mine. Here I led a &gt;$1 million / year diamond drilling programme at what is now a world class operation.<br />
<br />
My groundwater consulting has exposed me to a broad spectrum of projects, including exploration and feasibility studies, developing water for urban municipalities and rural communities, developing sanitation/WASH protocols, compiling impact assessments for EIA&#039;s, assessing water quality and contamination investigations, monitoring and audits for environmental compliance and undertaking drought relief interventions etc.<br />
<br />
Typically, my clients have included municipalities, government departments, NGO&#039;s, property developers, organised agriculture, manufacturing and industry, waste disposal contractors, renewable energy utilities and bottled water plants etc

What happens when dry ground gets wet, or when wet ground gets dry? Climate change, infrastructure development, drainage and dewatering and other project life cycle implications are mostly focused around drying wet ground, or wetting dry ground. In soil. In fractured rock. In karst. These are my topics of interest. I currently work at the Department of Geology, University of Pretoria, doing research in the cross-disciplinary fields between Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Vadose Zone Hydrology.
