Jean-Philippe Paiement, P.Geo, M.Sc.
Jean-Philippe Paiement graduated from Université du Québec à Montréal (2006) with a B.Sc. in Resources Geology and from Université Laval (2009) with a M.Sc. in Metallogeny and Geochemistry. Jean-Philippe specializes in ore deposit geology, resources estimation, geostatistics and structural geology.
Upon finishing his studied Jean-Philippe worked as a geologist for Teck at Red Dog (Zn-Pb) mine covering the short term mine exploration program. Jean-Philippe started working with SGS Canada Inc. as a consulting geologist for exploration and drilling campaigns in 2009. Since then, Jean-Philippe has been integrated as a full time member of SGS Canada Inc (2010) and he developed a specialization in exploration geology modelling and targeting, resources estimation, geostatistics, mine audits and sample selection.
Jean-Philippe led and participated on several technical reports and is considered a “Qualified Person” for numerous commodities such as Au-Ag veins, polymetallic deposits and industrial mineral deposits (REE, Lithium, Phosphate, Graphite and Iron Ore).
Recently, Jean-Philippe, together with the SGS team, won the Integra Gold Rush Challenge put forward by Integra Gold, with the objective of finding new drilling data using the extensive historic data. The combination of strong scientific based interpretations and machine learning to create a dynamic exploration model was valued by both an independent technical panel and a jury made of industry titans; and was awarded first prize.
