Anne Tomlinson (formerly Morrell) graduated from the University of Auckland, New Zealand in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science (Geophysics) and Bachelor of Arts (German). She continued her studies at Auckland graduating with a Master of Science majoring in Economic Geology and Applied Geophysics in 2004. Her thesis was a geophysical characterisation of low-sulfidation epithermal ore deposits of the southern Coromandel region, New Zealand using potential field methods integrated with geological and geochemical data.
Anne began at SGC in 2005 following two years working as an exploration and mine geologist at epithermal and orogenic lode gold operations in North Queensland and Western Australia for Newmont. As a Principal Geophysicist, she is responsible for the design, management, processing and interpretation of ground, downhole and airborne geophysical surveys associated exploring for a wide range of mineral commodities on both domestic and international projects. She has particular experience with epithermal gold and porphyry copper-gold systems in the Pacific Rim region. Anne carries out specialised modelling and interpretation of geophysical data in particular litho-structural interpretations of potential field datasets.
Anne is an active member of the ASEG, AIG and Society of Economic Geologists. She was a Councillor on the AIG Federal Committee responsible for Membership and Qualifications (2012-2017) and remains on the Membership and Education Committees, and is also a past President of the WA Branch of the ASEG. Anne has an interest in Geoscience outreach to primary and secondary students and is involved in the CSIRO’s Scientists in Schools program.
