Welcome to wow.gl Professional Geology Services
wow.gl is the trading name for the sole proprietorship, Mark Hutchison PhD RPGeo (CVR - 41819499) registered in Greenland. This is the vehicle for minerals exploration services throughout Greenland. However, with over 25 years as a qualified geologist, in addition to Greenland I have extensive experience in managing projects at a high level internationally on five continents.
I invite you to take a look at my Linkedin profile.
I am an RPGeo in the fields of mineral exploration and geochemistry and can offer 43-101/JORC Qualified Person services. I have focussed on green- and brown-fields exploration, throughout the world but specialising in the Arctic. However, I have also worked as Exploration Manager responsible for active mine-site development in Australia and I am knowledgeable of the full supply chain from financing, exploration, and through to exploitation and remediation.
My specialties are in re-worked and primary igneous-hosted commodities including copper, gold, diamonds, rare earths and other ciritical metals, nickel, and also lead-zinc. I maintain strong and continuing academic collaborations and my publication record can be found here.
