About Gregg

Gregg's multi-cultural experience work in geology, economic analysis and environmental management includes tours of duty at 3 universities, 6 mining companies, and 2 government agencies since 1974.  He coordinated complex, interdisciplinary projects involving teams of up to 20 specialists for mineral resource appraisal. He has managed or investigated projects in all western United States, Canada, Mexico, Chili and Honduras.

Gregg has a unique combination of geologic modeling, economic evaluation and ArcGIS map-making skills. These skills have been applied to research in mining districts throughout California for the past 45 years. This experience has formed his theories of ore deposit genesis, means of exploring for them, and appraisal methodologies for evaluating them. Gregg also has extensive exploration in the cleanup of abandoned mine sites and served as project manager for CERCLA actions at the Klau-Buena Vista Superfund Site. He has also lead several interdisciplinary teams. He is an expert in environmental permitting and land use planning, and geologic applications for ArcGIS technologies.

Gregg has taught geology courses since he was and undergraduate at U.T. El Paso in 1979.

His credentials include:

  • Professional California Geologist
  • American Association of Petroleum Geologists
  • Geological Society of America
  • Certified Mineral Examiner
