STRATAMODEL INC

Stratamodel provides technical services and geologic consulting to the mining, construction, environmental, and education industries. Services include mineral exploration, geochemical surveys, geologic field mapping, digital stratigraphic models, subsurface investigation and modeling, geographic information systems, GIS data acquisition, hydrogeologic investigations, and database construction.

Stratamodel is solely owned and operated by Thomas Bell, PhD, a registered professional geologist with over 30 years experience as a consulting geologist to the mining, petroleum, environmental, and geotechnical industries. Dr Bell has practiced geology as a professional geologist, geologic analyst, and geologic researcher for private companies and public institutions including the US Geological Survey, Arco Oil and Gas, Anaconda Copper, Utah International, Broken Hill Proprietary, and the Pennsylvania State University. With a background as a minerals exploration geologist, he brings to bear a wealth of practical experience derived from geologic field mapping, mineral and groundwater exploration, drill supervision, borehole logging, soil and water sampling, heavy mineral and stream sediment surveys, prospect generation, and project management. Much of his geologic field work has been conducted in the classic geologic terrains of Africa, North America, and South America.

Dr Bell is a seasoned field geologist with a working knowledge of geographic information systems, geostatistics and computer programming. The conceptual models that he implements by constructing accurate two and three dimensional digital groundwater, soil, stratigraphic, and mineralization models all have a basis in observations of the natural world.
