Personal profile


Quentin received his BSc in Geology from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (France) in 2009 and his MSc in Economic Geology from Luleå University of Technology (Sweden) in 2011. Quentin subsequently moved to Western Australia and worked as an exploration geologist for BM Geological Services Pty Ltd. During that time, he spent 6 months at Carosue Dam with Saracen Gold Mines and 2 months in Kambalda with St-Yves Goldfields. Quentin put an end to his fly-in fly-out life in order to undertake an exciting and challenging PhD project at UWA under the supervision of John Miller (CSIRO), Nicolas Thébaud (UWA-CET) and Stanislav Ulrich (AngloGold Ashanti). His study was entitled “4D evolution of the Sadiola-Yatela gold district, Kédougou-Kénieba inlier, West Africa. Quentin’s multidisciplinary study was a one-on-one project with AngloGold within the larger West African Exploration Initiative (WAXI). His research has documented variability in gold mineralisation at the deposit-scale and indicated that the Eburnean tectono-thermal event (ca. 2080-2050 Ma) represented the geodynamic engine that empowered orogenic gold mineralisation in the Kédougou-Kénieba inlier. The results of his research were aimed directly at aiding Brownfields and Greenfields exploration strategies. Quentin completed his PhD in 2016 and stayed at UWA as a postdoc within the WAXI collaborative research project. His research aimed at investigating the "Multiscale Architecture of Gold Systems in the Paleoproterozoic domain of the West African Craton"

Current projects

Quentin is a postoc within the Yilgarn 2020 collaborative research project. The primary goal of of his research is to develop a set of criteria or “toolbox” that may be applied to identify, rank, and target the critical fluid pathways within selected gold-nickel camps in the Kalgoorlie Terrane. His multiscale and multidisciplinary study involves geological mapping, structural mapping, lithofacies analysis and sequence stratigraphy, lithogeochemical characterisation of volcanic rocks, U-Pb geochronology, and the geologicla interpretation of geophysical datasets.
