Dr Ned Stolz

Senior 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.
