Research and Development

The company’s research and development strategy, led by veteran gold geologist and Executive Chairman Eduard Eshuys, is based on the extensive research of Distinguished Professor Ross Large, former Head of the Centre for Ore Deposit & Earth Sciences (CODES) of the University of Tasmania. Professor Large is a member of DGO’s specialist consultant team that includes Professor Neil Phillips, former Head of Exploration and Mining at CSIRO and a specialist in gold mineralization, Dr Stuart Bull a sedimentary basin specialist and Barry Bourne of Terra Resources, a highly experienced mineral exploration geophysicist.

Research undertaken by CODES has identified a concentration of the world’s major gold deposits during several distinct geological time frames coinciding with periods of higher than normal concentration of gold in the oceans. DGO’s landholdings have been acquired in favourable locations in sedimentary basins of analogous geological age.
