Dr. Simon Dorling is a geologist with extensive experience in the evaluation, exploration and development of mineral resources projects with a strong technical background and focuses on geological aspects of mineral systems.

Simon graduated in 1991 from the University of Bonn/Germany with a Masters Degree in Geology and in 1995 received a PhD from the University of Western Australia in Economic Geology.  He has since been an industry geologist with small and medium size exploration and mining companies, but spent most of his career with a Perth-based geological consulting firm working on projects around the globe.

During his PhD, Simon gained specialist technical knowledge in sediment-hosted base & precious metal deposits and structural geology. Through the exposure to deposit settings in a variety of geological environments, over more than three decades, he has acquired the technical depth and a pragmatic approach to the application of science for exploration and mining.
