Kenneth Williamson (M.Sc., P.Geo), or simply Ken, is a professional geologist with over 15 years of experience in the gold mining industry. Ken graduated from the University of Laval with a Masters Degree in Structural Geology, in 2002. From 2000 to 2004 as a Ph.D. candidate and from 2004 to 2010 as a Special Projects Geologist, Ken would have spent 10 years working at the Goldcorp Red Lake Gold Mines, where he developed a strong interest in integrating his structural geology expertise and mapping skills into 3D geological models. Ken has been, amongst other tasks, in charge of the elaboration of both the unified Campbell-Red Lake deposit-scale and Red Lake district-scale 3D litho-structural models.
In 2010, Ken accepted a job for the “Bureau de l’Exploration Géologique du Québec” (BEGQ) where he had the opportunity to work on a regional mapping campaign in the Matagami area; which culminated with the elaboration of the Matagami district-scale 3D model. From 2011 to 2013, he took the position of Project Geologist with InnovExplo, a Val-d’Or-based consulting firm, where he developed his Mineral Resource Estimate skills. Late in 2013, he joined Premier Gold Mines, first as a Senior Geologist, and later as the Manager of the Technical Services, where he was responsible for providing geological, modelling and resource estimate expertise to various project teams. In 2017, Ken returned to the consulting business and created 3DGeo Solution inc. (3DGS) shortly after. Since then, through 3DGS, he is providing structural geology expertise, as well as 3D litho-structural modelling and integrated Mineral Resource Estimate solutions to various clients.
