Patty Rehn is the owner of a specialty geochemical consulting firm. For 25 years, she has provided site-specific design and execution of custom geochemical surveys, primarily mercury vapor, using a patented technique for mineral exploration and environmental quality monitoring. The surveys range from small orientation studies to projects of 7000 samples spanning multiple years. These data informed property exploration and target drilling for clients including Barrick, Newmont, New Sleeper Gold, Buenoventura, Noranda/Hemlo, Goldfields and the Canadian Geological Survey.
She also offers custom development and evaluation of experimental geochemical exploration techniques. She is currently focused on the application of mercury vapor and soil pH surveys for the exploration of geothermal systems.
