Quentin received his BSc in Geology from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (France) in 2009 and his MSc in Economic Geology from Luleå University of Technology (Sweden) in 2011. Quentin subsequently moved to Western Australia and worked as an exploration geologist for BM Geological Services Pty Ltd. During that time, he spent 6 months at Carosue Dam with Saracen Gold Mines and 2 months in Kambalda with St-Yves Goldfields.
Quentin put an end to his fly-in fly-out life in order to undertake an exciting and challenging PhD project at UWA under the supervision of John Miller, Nicolas Thébaud and Stanislav Ulrich. His study was entitled “4D evolution of the Sadiola-Yatela gold district, Kédougou-Kénieba inlier, West Africa. Quentin’s multidisciplinary study was a one-on-one project with AngloGold within the larger West African Exploration Initiative (WAXI Stage 2). His research has documented variability in gold mineralisation at the deposit-scale and indicated that the Eburnean tectono-thermal event (ca. 2080-2050 Ma) represented the geodynamic engine that empowered orogenic gold mineralisation in the Kédougou-Kénieba inlier. The results of his research were aimed directly at aiding Brownfields and Greenfields exploration strategies.
Quentin followed up with a postdoctoral position within WAXI Stage 3 during which he investigated a number of gold deposits across Ivory Coast and Ghana. There, he used a multiscale and multidisciplinary approach combining field geology, structural geology, petrography, geochronology and the interpretation of geophysical dataset. From June 2019 to May 2022 Quentin was leading one of the key modules of the M0530 Yilgarn 2020 collaborative research project.
