Maeve Murphy has been active in both the Mining and Exploration Industries for over twenty years, in various aspects of geological computing. She was exposed to the acQuire GIM Suite in its early days in Zambia in 2000 and has seen many changes to the solution since then. She has worked in various capacities for large corporations and consulting companies and spent some time as an independent consultant. She thrives on solving problems and helping users reach a point where they can maximise the use of their data investment.
While working independently, Maeve provided a service to a gold mine in Northern Ontario, providing end-user support on site and remote assistance to the DBAs.
In recent years, Maeve was involved with the collection and storage of Rock Engineering data in GIM Suite which allowed the integration of field data and office applications along with geology and assay data. Much time was spent enhancing the data collection with the goal of minimising errors at the point of data collection.
Much of what Maeve knows comes from the many years working on various projects in different settings and commodities and is excited to be a Nova Partner.
