Key Personnel

Troy Unrau, P.Geo
Co-founder and Technical Lead

Prior to co-founding Lithogen, Troy delved into the many various geophysical pursuits, from planetary science, mineral exploration, environmental and geotechnical consulting, to instrument hardware and software development. This experience has spanned Canada and beyond, from the oil sands in Alberta to the metal-rich deserts of South America to contaminated cold war era outposts in the high arctic. Furthermore, he has a history in open-source software design and a predisposition towards ‘outside the box’ solutions. When a geophysical solution doesn’t exist, but should, Troy is the one to make it happen. As Technical Lead at Lithogen, Troy’s goal is to provide the highest level of technical aptitude, service, and support to our rental and services clients.
