The professional staff of Brovey Mapping Services are geoscientists Dr. N.M. Vickery (Nancy) and Mr. R.E. Brown (Bob).
Nancy is a graduate of the University of New England. She obtained lengthy experience with gold exploration in the Archean of Western Australia (which was the basis of her Ph.D) before joining the NSW Geological Survey as a regional mapper. Her experience in the New England Orogen and Curnamona Province, and drill core research into the Thomson Orogen have given her experience in a wide range of geological settings. Nancy is presently a lecturer at the University of New England where she teaches advanced geological mapping, exploration-related GIS and exploration geophysics. Nancy is an experienced petrographer, geological mapper, and exploration geologist.
Bob is a graduate of the University of New South Wales. Bob had a
lengthy career with the NSW Geological Survey as a regional mapper and
metallogenic mapper. He has mappedthroughout the Lachlan
Orogen, has extensive detailed
mapping experience in the Broken Hill and Tibooburra regions, and
lengthy experience in the New England Orogen. Bob has undertaken
research on primary and secondary sapphire occurrence in the New England
area. His experience in metallogenic mapping has bracketed the New
England Orogen, resulting in expertise in granite-related tin-tungsten
deposits, granite-related polymetallic deposits, orogenic
gold-antimony-tungsten deposits, and alluvial and deep lead gold, tin
and sapphire deposits. Bob developed a digital field data acquisition
system in 2004 which provides a world-leading,
handheld computer-based mapping and data recording tool for geological
mappers and other field staff. This versatile and efficient system is
used by Brovey Mapping Services. Bob has held an Adjunct position at the University of New England for more than 3 years, where he teaches mapping, mobile and desktop GIS and field skills.
