XRF Specialist

I am a Geochemical Consultant, having spent over 45 years in the management and application of analytical chemistry, mineralogy and geochemistry to geological exploration, and in the development of advanced analytical techniques and automation systems.  I was introduced to X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRFS) in 1967, and have retained a life-long interest in the technique despite incursions into other disciplines.  I specialised in X-ray fluorescence spectrometry using both wavelength dispersive and energy dispersive techniques. Publications include a variety of papers on the mineralogy and geochemistry of the Witwatersrand gold-bearing reefs and on XRFS and electron microprobe methods. 

After 30 years in the corporate world I now practice from Cape Town, South Africa, as an independent geochemical consultant, and specialise in the design, optimisation, calibration and quality management of laboratories, mainly in the minerals industry, and present training courses in X-ray fluorescence spectrometry and in quality management.  Clients include commercial, mine, smelter, waste recycle, refractories, mineral sands, mineral processing, refinery and research laboratories, consulting, auditing and accreditation organisations, and suppliers of analytical equipment.  Consulting services include assistance with the calibration and optimisation of X-ray fluorescence spectrometers.
