About us: The People

Christopher (Kit) Campbell, P. Geo., Principal Geophysicist

Mr. Campbell's professional life encompasses more than forty years of diverse experience in all facets of airborne and ground geophysics; he has directed projects in Canada, USA, Mexico, Australia, Africa, Russia and the Middle East. Mr. Campbell specializes in project management of new data acquisition, real-time (including on-site) quality control of data acquisition and field verification, overall processing and presentation of exploration data sets, as well as fully integrated solid geologic mapping and structural interpretations.

Upon conclusion of his 7-year attachment to the Botswana Department of Geological Survey as Principal Geophysicist and then Geophysical Advisor, Mr. Campbell returned to Canada in 1998 to establish Intrepid Geophysics Ltd. as a geophysical consulting group specializing in potential field and electromagnetic applications in the search for kimberlite, base and precious metals as well as groundwater and petroleum. The company has provided design, supervision, processing and interpretation services for ground and airborne geophysical surveys as well as providing more general GIS and mapping services for the earth resources sector.

Sean Walker, M.Sc., P.Geo., Senior Geophysicist

Mr. Walker is a Professional Geoscientist registered in Ontario, Canada with over 15 years of experience in a variety of fields within applied geophysics including; four years of mineral exploration with Kennecott Canada Exploration (Rio Tinto) focusing on Diamonds, two years with Sky Research Inc. researching the detection and discrimination of unexploded ordinance using electromagnetic and magnetic methods, and four years with Aeroquest Airborne focusing on research related to the processing and interpretation of data from the AeroTEM system. Mr. Walker founded Rock Point Geophysics in 2011 to provide consulting services to the exploration industry.

Mr. Walker completed his M.Sc. in Geophysics at the University of British Columbia in 1999 as part of the UBC-GIF under the supervision of Prof. Doug Oldenburg and earlier, his B.Sc. in Geology and Physics at McMaster University in 1996 under the supervision of Prof. Bill Morris.

About us: The Company

Messrs. Campbell and Walker have aligned their respective companies (effective December 2013) to improve upon the performance of each individual business by capitalizing on the benefits each company provides, and utilizing common resources. Specifically, we believe this alliance will allow us to provide a wider array of services and more depth, with a faster response time to specific projects.

In combination, we have completed projects for over 100 Canadian-based and International private sector companies and government agencies; the core of our business is repeat clients (companies and individuals). Services are provided to smaller companies without a geophysicist on their staff and to larger companies requiring additional geophysical expertise and capability from time to time; this work can be undertaken at our offices, in the field or at the clients’ facilities.

The scope of projects successfully completed includes the following:

  • Kimberlite exploration using airborne magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic surveys to locate both classical pipe bodies and more irregular blow and dyke -type intrusives.
  • Airborne magnetic, radiometric, electromagnetic and gravity gradiometry surveys in the search for base and precious metals, uranium and rare earth deposits.
  • Detailed ground magnetic, gravity, electromagnetic, radiometric and electrical surveys (both surface and downhole) in the search for diamonds, base and precious metals.
  • Iron ore exploration using ground and airborne gravity gradiometry, magnetic and electromagnetic surveys to identify and delineate deposits.
  • Hydrocarbon exploration using magnetic and gravity data to provide a structural context of the host basin.
  • Quality Control and Project Management on behalf of a major oil producing company of a national-scope sized triaxial aeromagnetic survey in the search for petroleum, Middle East.
  • Regional studies using aeromagnetic, gravity and satellite data to determine structures and lithologies for base, precious metal, and diamond exploration and to outline new mineralization districts.
  • Inversion of airborne electromagnetic data to produce a property wide 3D apparent resistivity model to aid interpretation on both mineral exploration and aquifer mapping projects.
  • Technology transfer, training and on-going mentoring of both geologists and geophysicists in their professional development, here in Canada and Internationally.
