Key Personnel

Dr. Yves Lamontagne, Ph.D, P. Eng
President

Yves Lamontagne graduated in geological engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1967, then received a M.Sc. in 1970, and a Ph.D. in 1975, both from the University of Toronto. The research subjects during this period were magnetic interpretation, potential field processing, electromagnetic interpretation and modelling, and the first developments of a wide band survey system, UTEM. During and between study periods, he worked in geological and geophysical exploration for six mining and exploration companies, and did software development and data processing consulting. He carried out geophysical contract surveys and was involved in geophysical consulting from 1975 through 1979. In 1979 he founded Lamontagne Geophysics Ltd. - specializing in wideband electromagnetic instrumentation and related surveys, interpretation and software. His main research interests are in EM measuring techniques, noise reduction processing, wide band electromagnetic modelling and conductivity imaging techniques.

Bruce McMonnies, MMET, P. Geo
Senior Geophysicist

Bruce McMonnies graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Geology from RMIT in 1982. He worked with LGL in Australia in two stints 1983-84 and then in 1986-87. In 1987 he started with DeBeers Diamonds where he stayed for 20 years working in Australia, Brazil and Canada. Bruce was awarded a Masters of Mineral Exploration Technologies in 1997 from Curtin University. In 2007 Bruce joined Rio Tinto Exploration and in 2008 started consulting as BEM Geoscience Inc. Bruce rejoined LGL in 2015.

Rob Langridge, M.Sc, P. Geo
Senior Associate Geophysicist

Rob Langridge graduated in geology and physics from Queen's University in 1978 and received an M.Sc. from the University of Toronto in 1982. This has been followed up by further graduate work and teaching at Queen's University and extensive contract geophysical work. His association with Lamontagne Geophysics dates back to early 1982. Since then he has worked, and continues to work, extensively with LGL, with UTEM equipment and with LGL developments in both equipment and software. He brings to the table over 30 years of experience working with and evaluating EM field equipment, EM data and EM modelling software.

Owen Fernley, P. Eng
Geophysicist

Owen Fernley has been with Lamontagne Geophysics Ltd since graduating with a degree in Geological Engineering from Queen's University in 2001. He is involved in scientific programming in Fortran and C and has lead UTEM surveys in Sudbury and around the world. More recently, he is using javascript to create 3D environments and data plots in modern web browsers with webGL and scalable vector graphics. He is now working on methods of visualizing and interpreting EM data by connecting geophysics software to web based interfaces.

Tina Demerling, P. Eng
Geophysicist

Tina Demerling graduated from Queen's University in 1999 with a degree in Geological Engineering (Geophysics option) and received an M.Sc. from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2004. During her M.Sc. work and after, Tina worked in microseismic monitoring of assisted oil and gas development (hydraulic fracturing, etc.). Having joined Lamontagne Geophysics in 2012, Tina assists with report preparation, data QC, and field work.
