Exploration for tin and tungsten in Namibia
During my geological M.Sc.studies at Goettingen University 1981 - 1987 I had the opportunity to gain first hand experience as field assistant in exploration and natural resources in Austria (gold exploration 1982 in the Austrian Alps) as well as in Namibia (Uis tin mine). This triggers a lasting fascination for ore deposits and economic geology, that never left me since.
After finishing my degree in geology and mineralogy I continued with a course in "Economic Geology" 1988 at Rhodes Unviersity, Grahamstown, RSA. Upon returning to Germany I started an Ph.D. project about phosphate fixation in artifical wetlands at Witzenhausen and Goettingen. I obtained an Ph.D. degree in engineering in summer 1991. After working with the engineering office AEW / Hanover in 1992 I decided to found my own independent consulting business Hydrobuero - Dr. Krassmann in early 1993.
For more than 20 years now Hydrobuero - Dr. Krassmann offers professional consulting and services in the fields of economic geology and mining history, project generation and exploration of mineral commodities, appraisal of geothermal and energy storage potential in abandoned mines as well as hydrogeoology and exploration and documentation of underground structures / souterrains.
Recently the consulting focus of Hydrobuero switched more and more to the mineral resource industry, a topic I am especially fond of since long. To suit these changes in consulting services, this website was accordingly named "Mineral & Exploration - Dr. Krassmann".
I am a member of the German International Mining Consulting Group network and therefore have close contacts to many other senior mining and geology experts, which may help to solve any of your natural resource and mining related questions. I am also a member of the Federation of Eurogeologists and hence a Competent / Qualified Person sensu international NI43-101, JORC and PERC standards.
