Chief Geologist

Dr Natasha Henwood (FGS)

Natasha is an Exploration Geologist with specialisms in structural geology and geological mapping. After graduating from the University of Leicester in 2004 with a First Class MGeol (Geology), she went on to complete a PhD on the Palaeoarchaean tectonometamorphic evolution of southern West Greenland at the University of Edinburgh.

Natasha has recently worked as an Exploration Geologist with London-based AIM-listed Junior Explorers and as a Senior Exploration Geologist with a UK-based consultancy. In these roles, she used GIS software to integrate field, structural and geochemical data, developing geological models that formed the basis for JORC-compliant Exploration Targets and Mineral Resource Estimates. She has extensive experience in the mapping of complex basement terranes, having worked on regional mapping projects with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and on early- to advanced gold and iron ore projects in Kenya and Greenland respectively. She also has experience in data acquisition to JORC standards (core logging, sampling, QA/QC) and in data management (auditing, management and database troubleshooting).
