Darren Burrows , Vice President

Darren graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2006 with a Geophysics (Hons) degree. Initially he worked in the deep Gold mines of South Africa analysing mining induced seismicity, and working with rock engineers to ensure safe underground mining conditions. He then moved to a Platinum exploration project in the Bushveld Igneous Complex planning drillholes, logging core and managing exploration data. Finally, he moved to airborne geophysics with Fugro / CGG / Xcalibur where he has held various roles focussing on geophysical data processing & interpretation as well as business development. At Xcalibur he helps mineral, energy, and government explorers design airborne geophysical programs to answer their exploration questions.
