What is Orefind?
Orefind is a geological consulting company that represents the partnership of two successful structural geological consultants Dr Brett Davis and Dr Jun Cowan. Our mission is to make a measurable, material difference to mineral exploration
and mining projects through an integrated approach of data collection, modelling, and interpretation. We combine our more than 50 years of research, industry knowledge, and experience with ‘state of the art’ rapid 3D modelling and investigation methods so that our clients get the maximum benefit in the quickest time possible. From our home base in Perth, Western Australia, we service our clients across the globe. We combine our structural expertise with the analytical skills of our associate Dr Scott Halley (geochemist, also based in Perth).
Structural geology and geological modelling - our philosophy and approach
Our investigation of hundreds of mineral deposits shows that structural geometry represents the fundamental control on the flow of mineralising fluids and the deposition of mineralisation
. However, there is a lack of recognition and/or documentation by exploration and mining personnel of the importance of structural geological features
Orefind investigates structural geological issues at all scales. We use observations and data from ongoing outcrop, core, and mine sources to progressively update an interactive 3D model that addresses the needs of exploration or mining optimisation. Findings from deposit-scale analysis and construction of 3D geological models are incorporated with prospect-, regional-, and core-scale relationships.
Why call us?
Our investigation approach is successful with both major and junior companies. Orefind delivers a high-quality 3D model of your deposit during the first week of investigation. You will see the benefits of our analysis in two to four weeks, not months. Our presence on-site allows ongoing incorporation of core-, mine-, and deposit-scale relationships into the model in real time. And while we're on-site, we can train your people using our popular workshops on field-based structural analysis and deposit-scale implicit 3D modelling techniques.
