Dr Benjamin van der Hoek

Doctor of Philosophy (University of Adelaide, 2014)
Thesis title: Regolith expressions of concealed gold mineralisation in the central Gawler Craton, South Australia.

B.Sc Hons. (University of Adelaide, 2009)
Thesis title: Biogeochemical expression of uranium mineralisation by Eremophila shrubs in the northern Flinders Ranges - western Lake Frome plains, South Australia.

B.Sc (University of Adelaide, 2008)
Majors: Geology, Environmental geoscience

Current research: I am working as a geologist/geochemist with the Deep Exploration Technologies CRC (DET CRC) on the Lab-at-Rig® Futures project. This project involves investigating the workflow and geological sample quality when drilling with a Coiled Tube drill rig, and the subsequent real-time geochemical and mineralogical analysis of the samples.
