Tiago has more than 15 years of experience in the fields of mineral exploration and structural geology. He received his B.Sc. in Geology and M.Sc. in Structural Geology, both from São Paulo University State in Brazil.
Tiago worked as an exploration geologist for 9 years at Yamana Gold Inc., initially as Field Geologist and later as Exploration Coordinator. He managed gold projects in all stages of exploration and in various geological settings (Greenstone Belts, Porphyry-Skarn, IOGC, VMS, Paleo-placer) and specialized in data integration, target generation and pipeline management.
After joining Vektore he has collaborated on more than 14 projects combining the exploration experience with structural geology challenges presented by clients. His work is focused on structural and exploration data analysis and integration, structural logging and structural field mapping to reveal the 3D key structural controls of mineral bodies. Such models are used in exploration and resource modelling. He also contributes as a domain expert for the development of the Ore.node® software and has co-developed the Structural Convergence© concept, method, and algorithm.
