Wendy Keiller - Geologistwendy@vbkom.co.za

 

After graduating with an honours degree in geology, I began my geoscience career at the world’s deepest mine with AngloGold Ashanti.

I have loved every moment of this fascinating and diverse career choice. After gaining solid experience as a mining geologist, I had the opportunity to gain experience in local resource estimation of the world-famous Witwatersrand Gold Reefs. A natural affinity and keen interest in geostatistics sparked further studies towards my M.Sc. in Resource Estimation at the University of the Witwatersrand.

As a geologist I enjoy the pressure of unique daily challenges and enjoy working on value adding projects, some include: statistical geozoning; evaluating the use of new technology on narrow tabular orebodies; and estimation methods for new technology mining. I have recently joined this fantastic team at VBKOM and look forward to gaining multi-commodity experience in orebody modelling and estimation across the globe and have just returned from a manganese exploration project in Gabon.

I am an independent and ambitious person who enjoys taking educated risks to advance both my professional and personal life, focusing on continuous improvement with a drive for perfectionism.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and spend most holidays visiting loved ones scattered around the world. I find nature rejuvenates my energy, so I enjoy hiking, walking my dogs and usually won’t say no to any new adventure.
