Dependable leadership through teaching and learning

Desmond has a BSc (Hons) in Geology & Economic Geology from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and has over 20 years’ industry experience in all aspects of economic geology related to 3D geological modelling, geo-statistics and resource estimation. An explorer by nature, Desmond’s vast wealth of experience covers geological exploration, mining feasibility studies, due diligence reviews and CPR’s.

Always eager to learn about different geological settings and ore formation process and always wondering where the next ‘Tier 1’ discovery will come from; Desmond’s ever-inquisitive mind-set has established a solid foundation for the vision behind B&S Geological Software cc, and a strong example for his team to follow.

Desmond enjoys travel, outdoor activities and new technologies.
