Management Team

Our team includes geostatisticians and geometallurgists with diverse experience in numerical modeling for mining and petroleum projects.

Dr. Jared Deutsch

Principal Geometallurgist

Dr. Deutsch leads Resource Modeling Solutions and directs geometallurgical modeling projects. Dr. Deutsch has experience in mineral resource estimation and geometallurgical modeling for complex hard rock deposits. He specializes in integrating metallurgical data with machine learning into mineral resource models for better process predictions and increased mine value. He holds advanced degrees in both extractive metallurgy and geostatistics. Prior to joining Resource Modeling Solutions, he was a geometallurgist and geostatistician on the Carlin Trend at Newmont. Dr. Deutsch is the founder and editor of Geostatistics Lessons providing guidance on the application of geostatistics.

Dr. Ryan Barnett, P.Geo.

Principal Geostatistician

Dr. Barnett directs geostatistical modeling at Resource Modeling Solutions and is a research associate in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta. Dr. Barnett is a geostatistician and geologist specializing in the integration and modeling of multiple geological variables within petroleum reservoirs and mineral deposits. He has also worked continuously as a geostatistical consultant for the past seven years, completing projects for both mining and petroleum companies. Prior to joining the University of Alberta, Ryan worked as a geologist within the Athabasca oil sands. He continues to develop and teach courses on advanced multivariate geostatistics to industry professionals and graduate students.

Dr. Clayton Deutsch, P.Eng.

Principal Geostatistician

Dr. Deutsch oversees consulting, training, and strategic decisions at Resource Modeling Solutions. He is a Professor in the School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta where he directs the Centre for Computational Geostatistics. He teaches and conducts research into better ways to model heterogeneity and uncertainty in mineral deposits and petroleum reservoirs. His employment history also includes three years with Exxon Production Research Company and three years of experience with Placer Dome Inc. Dr. Deutsch has published eight books and over three hundred research papers.
