Ned Stolz joins Southern Geoscience Consultants

After holding a series of senior roles in government and industry, Ned Stolz is joining Southern Geoscience in the position of Principal Geophysicist.

Ned began his career with CRA on regional scale exploration for uranium and base metals before returning to university to complete a PhD in electromagnetic geophysics. After this he joined Western Mining to apply his electromagnetic knowledge to nickel sulphide exploration in the Agnew – Wiluna belt of WA. In 2001 Ned moved on to St Ives Gold Mine where he honed his potential-field skills and adapted reflection seismic methods for hard rock exploration. His interest in mineral systems targeting and databases lead him to the role of Group Leader – Geophysics at Geoscience Australia in Canberra, responsible for all onshore and airborne geophysical acquisition.

Most recently Ned was Manager – Geophysics and Modelling at the Geological Survey of New South Wales. Highlights included delivery of all publicly available geophysics through the MinView web portal and completion of the AusLAMP long-period MT survey across New South Wales.

Ned is looking forward to returning to hands-on technical geophysics: “Southern Geoscience offers me the chance to work in a collaborative team assisting clients with exploration projects across a wide range of commodities and geological terrains. The ability to consult with other expert geophysicists and having access to the latest processing and modelling software ensures we can deliver the best solutions for our clients.”
