Senior Resource Geologist
Flavie started her career as a field geologist working in gemstones mines at a number of mine sites across the world. Her interest in modelling and predicting gemstone quality took her to a role with Vale in New Caledonia as a Resource Geologist. She worked in this role for five years, in charge of estimating and reporting nickel resources using Datamine. During this time, she became Geology Manager looking after the entire process from exploration, drilling, sampling, QAQC, grade control and resource definition. As part of the role, Flavie had to take care of a team of 60 people, the contractors, setting up budgets and managing HSE across the team.
Keen to learn more about geostatistics and resource estimation, Flavie completed a Post Master’s degree at the School of Mines in Fontainebleau, France where she also learnt the use of Isatis software. She subsequently became a consultant in geology and sales manager for Geovariances, the company that produces Isatis, where she conducted training in Geostatistics and technical studies to the company’s client base.
Her efficiency in delivering results and focus on customer care adds value to any project.
