Joe Cain (HGI) 2015

Joe Cain is our new staff geologist, and comes to us with a diverse background of geoscience skills developed over 15 years as an exploration and resource geologist. He received his M. Sci. degree in geology from the University of California, Davis in 2006, and holds B.Sci degrees in both geology and environmental science from Northern Arizona University. Joe excels in geologic analysis and interpretation of both field-based data and computer modeling and analysis output. He has provided clients with field services such as drilling oversight of multi-rig campaigns, geotechnical core logging, geologic mapping and sampling, and coal-bed methane desorption analysis. He is competent in computer-based analytics as well including GIS, 3D geologic modeling, geostatistical analysis, and well log correlation. In addition to his field and computer-based expertise, he has experience reporting to NI 43-101 and JORC code standards, due-diligence review, and developing NEPA documents for federal management agencies. Currently, Joe is involved with integrating geologic and geophysical data to support secondary mining recovery, hydrogeologic studies, and environmental remediation efforts here at HGI, and we’re dang excited to have him because he puts the ‘Gee’ in geophysics….
