Fabien is a passionate geoscientist and joined Equity in 2020 after ten years of international field, research, and industry experience, mostly in porphyry-epithermal systems in the Western Tethyan belt and North American Cordillera. He brings a practical rock-first approach that he utilizes to develop camp- to lithospheric-scale metallogenic models in orogenic belts. Fabien combines geoscience knowledge and exploration field data to reduce exploration risks and improve exploration decision-making.

Significant Projects

INTEGRA GOLD RUSH CHALLENGE, QUEBEC, CANADA

Part of the Data Miners team (2nd place) that developed and applied of machine learning tools to identify brownfields exploration targets at the Archean Sigma and Lamaque orogenic gold deposits in 2016. This involved 3D geological and structural modelling, advanced GIS processing, target definition and ranking, and led to the foundation of GoldSpot Discoveries Inc.

WESTERN TETHYAN METALLOGENY PROJECT, TURKEY & GEORGIA:

Research lead on the regional metallogeny modules in the Anatolian belt (1500 x 200 km), Artvin district (90 x 60 km) in Turkey and Adjara-Trialeti belt (200 x 70 km) in Georgia (Mineral Deposit Research Unit, The University of British Columbia). Characterization of Cretaceous to Miocene porphyry, epithermal, skarn and VMS districts and belts, temporal, spatial and geochemical evolution of magma fertility, and determination of the tectono-magmatic framework. The project outcomes provided the industry sponsors with foundation knowledge to make informed exploration decisions.

EMERSON PROSPECT, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

Managed the greenfields exploration program that involved RAB drilling for undercover bedrock mapping and sampling, surface prospecting, line-brushing and 3D IP survey.

LA MARTINIERE PROSPECT, QUEBEC, CANADA

Part of the exploration team on a greenfields heli-supported diamond drilling program on orogenic gold and VMS targets as core logger and rig supervisor.
