SRK’s New Office in Kolkata

Subrato Ghosh is managing SRK’s office in Kolkata, India. The new office, SRK’s first in India, is involved with a major study of Hindustan Copper’s existing mines and operations and with detailed exploration for POSCO prospects. The primary focus of the new office is developing a core team of geologists and mining engineers with the aim of providing services for the exploration industry in India and neighbouring countries, including Indonesia.

Subrato is a Principal Resource Geologist with 16 years of experience in software applications and resource modeling. He graduated from the Indian School of Mines in 1990, then spent a couple of years working as an exploration geologist with Hindustan Copper Limited, a copper mining corporation.

Before joining SRK in August 2006, Subrato spent a major part of his time in mining IT consulting, including the promotion of mine planning software, software implementation and consulting on projects that ranged from database management to geological report preparation and tactical mine planning. He participated in country-wide capacity building projects, assisting the Bhutan geological survey in computerizing data and project management including mine planning and GIS integration. He gained GIS experience with another IT company after leaving HCL.

Subrato has worked with multiple commodities: copper, iron, chromite, coal and lignite, gypsum and limestone. He is presently working on his PhD topic, which revolves around using geospatial systems in sustainable mine management.
