Feature Author

Dr. James Siddorn

James Siddorn has 19 years of experience in the structural analysis of mineral deposits. He specializes in deciphering deposit-scale controls on ore plunge in precious and base metal deposits and in the district-scale geological interpretation of geophysics for exploration targeting. He has completed numerous deposit- and district- scale structural studies in support of gold, Ni-Cu-PGE, and uranium exploration.

James has conducted strategic and technical reviews for exploration and mining projects around the globe. In addition, he provides technical input for geoscientific programs evaluating site suitability for deep geological nuclear repositories.

James has taught more than 30 applied structural geology courses internationally to over 1,500 exploration and mining geologists and engineers. In May, 2013, he was recognized by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum with the Past Presidents’ Memorial Medal “for leadership and excellence in the field of Structural Geology”.
