Mr. Han holds a B.Sc. in Geology from Jilin University, a M.Sc. from the Ocean University of China, and a Ph.D. from the Institute of Oceanography, Chinese Academy of Sciences. After a few years of working and academic research in China, Deliang was invited, as a senior visiting scientist, to the University of Regina where he studied and worked for 5 years and received a M.Sc. in Geology with a focus of geomatics applications in geosciences. Deliang joined North Rim in early 2011 as a Project Geologist where he has worked on numerous potash projects in central Saskatchewan, salt/potash investigations and due diligence in the Adavale Basin of Queensland, Australia, and the Vientiane Basin in Laos.
Deliang has over 15 years of academic and mineral exploration experience in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Manitoba, as well as in South and Eastern China. His expertise is sedimentary geology and sedimentology with experience in the examination of drill cores, cuttings, and other geophysical and geochemical data, in order to create integrated geological and/or resource interpretations. His experience includes; drill planning and supervisions, core logging and review, mineral resource definition and estimate, geological modeling and data validation, GIS mapping and geo-spatial analysis.
As part of North Rim’s potash team, Deliang has worked on many potash projects including those in Canada, the United States, Australia, and South East Asia. Deliang has also acted as the project lead, and successfully managed exploration projects in Saskatchewan for a few potash companies, as well as on his international projects. In addition, he has been involved in many aspects of a project, from evaluation of potential properties, design and management of exploration programs, to the evaluation of exploration program results.
Deliang Han is a Professional Geoscientist registered with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan since 2011, with permission to consult.
