Walter is a post-doctoral research officer at the CET, currently studying the Archean Burns Cu-Au deposit, in the Eastern goldfields of the Yilgarn Craton. Walter graduated with B.Sc (hons) from UWA and was awarded his PhD at James Cook University in 1985. He subsequently spent extended periods working for the Geological Survey of WA and Sons of Gwalia Ltd., where he mapped and studied Archean greenstone belts and the mineral deposits (especially gold) within them. In 2005, Walter started his own consultancy company, The Walter Witt Experience. This experience, and links with the CET, took him to China, Africa, South America and Scandanavia to study and explore for mineral deposits of gold, copper, REE and cobalt.
