Walter has worked as a geoscientist since 1973, in Industry, government and academic positions, primarily as an exploration geologist or in research positions directed to the application of geoscientific data and methods to the discovery of mineral deposits. He currently works as The Walter Witt Experience, consulting and contracting to a range of Industry, government and academic clients.
Walter’s early career was focussed on nickel and gold exploration in the Yilgarn Craton, and geological mapping and gold mineralisation studies in the Yilgarn for the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA). In 1998, he was awarded the Geological Society of Australia’s Gibb-Maitland Medal for substantial contributions to geoscience in Western Australia, with particular consideration given to contributions that relate to the occurrence or discovery of mineral resources. Since 2005, he has worked as a geological consultant in Australia, Asia, Africa and South America. Currently, Walter is compiling a Yilgarn Gold Exploration Atlas for the CET and GSWA.
