Cardno experts to present on latest downhole geophysical logging techniques in surface mining at AEMA Annual Meeting

Cardno experts, Kevin Andrews and Paul Dockweiler will be presenting on the latest technologies in surface mining at the American Exploration & Mining Association (AEMA) 122nd Annual Meeting, Dec. 5-9, in Reno, Nevada.

The collection of geotechnical information, though not a top priority for many mines, is often required for completion of even modest pit slope stability assessments. Acquisition of this data using downhole geophysical techniques is fast and accurate and provides cost-effective options when working within a limited project budget. During their presentation, Kevin and Paul will provide data collected via downhole geophysical logging techniques, and share how these methods are used in changing market and regulatory conditions.

The AMEA Annual Meeting is the second largest annual mining convention in the US, consisting of short courses and technical, legislative, and policy sessions. The AEMA is a 121 year old, 2,500 member trade association based in Spokane, Washington. Learn more about the AEMA by visiting their website.

Kevin holds masters level degrees in both geology and mining engineering, and has over 14 years of experience in the mining industry. His experience includes field management of multi-drill mineral exploration programs, hydrogeological field work, and geological/geotechnical field mapping.

Paul is a geologist with over 15 years of experience in mineral exploration and resource development, including discovery, mapping, modelling, and reporting of gold, silver, and rare earth minerals. He serves as project manager for slope stability assessment projects and frequently conducts field investigation phases for slope stability evaluations.
