A big step but only a short walk for geologist Simon
Simon Kavanagh has joined the Wheal Jane Consultancy team as a Mining Geologist to help expand the scope and capabilities of the business.
Although he will now be applying his knowledge and skills to a different aspect of geology, he has not had far to move to his new office literally just two doors down the corridor from his previous employer SGS Minerals who are also based at Wheal Jane!
Prior to joining SGS Minerals in 2013, Simon had worked for gold mining companies in Northern Ireland and Finland after completing his BA in Geology at Trinity College, Dublin and his MSc in Mining Geology at the Camborne School of Mines.
Simon will be carrying out petrographic analysis, mining searches and environmental surveys throughout the southwest from the company’s base at Wheal Jane.
Simon commented: “I’m looking forward to helping Wheal Jane expand and grow, and hopefully get to put my knowledge of geology and the southwest to the test.”
