Dr. Thompson Ph.D., P.Geo., is a hydrogeologist specialized in numerical modeling of groundwater flow and transport, mine site assessments, and groundwater investigations. His mining focused work has been related to mine dewatering/depressurization, tailings and waste rock seepage assessment and management, closure and reclamation, regional groundwater resource impact assessments, and groundwater contamination. He has experience with industry standard modeling packages such as MODFLOW, FEFLOW, and HydroGeoSphere. His numerical modeling for mine sites has included 1D tailings and waste rock storage facility cover evaluations, 3D regional-scale models to support permitting and environmental assessment, 2D and 3D pit slope scale modeling to support slope depressurization, and 3D models of tailings storage facilities to support tailings dewatering and/or tailings seepage management evaluations. He has worked on hard rock mines throughout Canada, United States, South America, Australia, and the Dominican Republic, as well as Alberta Oil Sands operations.
