  • Former Group Manager
  • Mineral Resource Management R&D Group, Great Britain

Wynand Kleingeld has recently retired from his position of Group Manager Mineral Resources at De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited. He obtained his Doctors Degree in Mining Engineering specializing in Geostatistics in diamond evaluation from the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Mines de Paris, Fountainebleau, France.

Dr. Kleingeld was involved with the evaluation of resources and reserves for a quarter century, working on most based metal deposits e.g. gold, nickel, copper, niobium and platinum. He is best known for his work with diamonds,and is involved world wide in the issues related to mineral resources and reserves. Dr. Kleingeld is a Competent Person in the evaluation of mineral resources and mineral reserves, a member of the Geostatistical Association of Southern Africa, and was formerly Chairman of the Diamonds Working Group of the South African Mineral Resource Committee (SAMREC).
