Mathias Forss, CEO
M.Sc. Geology and Mineralogy
mathias

Mathias is based in Hedemora, Sweden. He started back in 2004 as a private independent consultant, providing geological services to exploration companies. He has worked in Sweden, Norway and Finland exploring for precious-, iron- and base metals in a wide range of deposit types.

Mathias graduated 2006 from Åbo Akademi University with a M.Sc. degree in Geology and Mineralogy. The very next year he founded Ab Scandinavian GeoPool Ltd together with Anna Dumell.

During his career, Mathias has provided a whole variety of different services through GeoPool to exploration- and mining companies. These are tenement management, planning and supervision of drilling programs, drill core logging, bedrock mapping, soil-sampling surveys, contracting, project management, regulatory and other reporting, as well as geophysical surveys.

Jens Rönnqvist
M.Sc. Geology and Mineralogy
jens

Jens is based in Kokkola, Finland. He graduated from Åbo Akademi University in 2006, and holds a M.Sc. degree in Geology and Mineralogy.

Jens has been involved in GeoPool since 2010, but already during his studies, he worked as a junior geologist for an exploration company in Finland. Since his graduation he has been involved in many different exploration projects, but he has also got experience from mine sites. At a time he worked as a project geologist in a nickel mine, and during 2008-2010 he was a mine geologist at Pahtavaara gold mine, situated in Sodankylä.

From Sodankylä he moved over to northern Sweden, where he was active for 1,5 years exploring for a world class copper mine. Since that Jens has been involved in e.g. copper-, iron- and graphite projects in Sweden, but also in some minor projects in Finland. Beside of field exploration, Jens is working closely with tenement management in Finland, Sweden and Norway.

Robert Stenberg
M.Sc. Geology and Mineralogy
robert

Robert is based in Porvoo, Finland. He graduated from Åbo Akademi University in 2014, but has worked for GeoPool since 2010 on many exploration projects in different parts of the world, including Finland, Sweden, Norway, Indonesia, Turkey and Romania.

In 2011 Robert was involved in an IOCG- project in northern Sweden and the next year he worked in central Norway on a nickel-iron alloy exploration project. Robert found the alloy project very interesting and wrote his Master´s Thesis on the formation of the mineral awaruite (Ni2-3Fe) in serpentinized ultramafic rocks.

At a period in 2014, Robert was logging drill core at a Cu/Zn (VMS) mine in Sweden. Robert is very familiar with hyperspectral mapping and has used the method on many deposit types including porphyry copper, epithermal gold and VMS.

The past five years, Robert has actively been involved with tenement management in Finland, Sweden and Norway.
