About Us

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.
