Intro

Rogue’s mission is to ensure that their clients have the highest-quality data available for their projects. We are a group of professional geologists, data specialists and data scientists that have a passion for turning data into opportunity. Our experience ranges from grass roots programs to operating mines and covers a huge range of commodities in a wide number of districts including base and precious metals, industrial minerals, uranium, REEs. With over 45 years of industry experience working with junior, mid tier and major mining companies we know what it takes to help advance their projects and increase value.

We specialize in the following

  • Data Management (Custom Field Software, Database Development, QAQC)
  • Analysis (Geochemical, Structural, Multidisciplined)
  • Exploration Program Design and Execution
  • Oriented Core Studies and Field Portable Analytics
  • Custom Field Apps and Software
  • 3D Modelling and Analysis
  • GIS and Cartography
  • Data Compilations
  • Regional / District Scale Analysis and Targeting
Here are some examples of our work.

Work

Chris Gallagher B.Sc, M.Sc.
w/ Distinction (Geology)

Chris Gallagher is a structural geologist and President / CEO of Rogue Geoscience. He has been involved in mineral exploration since 2003 after completing his Masters in structural geology and tectonics at Carleton University. Since then he has been instrumental in developing a number of exploration methodologies and geologic data management systems utilized in the industry.

The past 15 years has exposed Chris to variety of deposit types in many different geologic terrains. This experience has provided him with the knowledge and expertise to develop a flexible data management system that aids in grassroots to advanced exploration programs. This system has continually evolved to accommodate most deposit types ranging from epithermal gold to SEDEX to porphyry systems.

Chris also has a strong interest in integrating technology with exploration and his recent focus has been on whole rock geochemistry, alteration mapping and the development of QAQC systems for oriented core work.

Grayson Clague B.Sc.

Grayson started working in mineral exploration during the summer of 2006 collecting geochemical samples, and working in a core shack. After seeing the state of paper based data collection in the industry he immediately became interested in finding a solution. After enrolling at the University of British Columbia with a focus on mathematics and computer science, he continued working during the summers in mineral exploration, building data collection systems and databases. During this time he was exposed to a wide variety of geologic field work, from grass roots exploration to brown field drill programs.

Since then he has completed his Bachelors degree and applied his programming skills to problems in mineral exploration, building Android apps for field data collection, spatial databases using PostGIS, specialized analysis apps for analysis of oriented core, statistical analytics apps, and workflow automation.

He has a passion for extracting the maximum value from data, and continues to find novel strategies to accomplish this. Including streamlining data collection, and using modern data science techniques to find trends where traditional analytic techniques fall short.
