Amanda Buckingham PhD has been involved in mineral exploration for 25 years. Amanda co-founded Fathom Geophysics in 2007, an award winning and industry leading geophysical consulting group that has developed worlds-best technology for interpretation under cover. Tools developed include structure detection and 3D geochemical footprint modelling of specific deposit styles as well as many other technologies; significantly increasing the chances of discovery under cover.

Dr Buckingham’s early career involved work as a geoscientist and project manager at majors such as Rio Tinto as well as listed juniors in both Canada and Australia and several years consulting at SRK. Amanda has extensive exploration experience in North and Sub-Saharan Africa, Canada, US, Mexico, South America, South East Asia, Russia and several countries in the former Soviet Union.
