Tyler Acorn MSc

Engineer and Geostatistician

Tyler received a Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering in 2008 from Missouri University of Science and Technology and a Master of Science in Mining Engineering specializing in Geostatistics in 2017 from the University of Alberta. Supervised by Clayton V. Deutsch, Mr. Acorn conducted research exploring the effect of the uncertainty in geologic resource models on mining projects and methods for managing the associated risk.

Tyler joined APEX in 2020 and has worked on a range of resource estimation projects of base metal deposits. His primary responsibilities include leveraging green and brownfield geological data using geostatistical and statistical techniques; creation of custom computer programs; preparing data for mineral resource estimations; and the preparation of NI 43-101 technical reports and assessment reports.
