Team Meeting
Pallas was founded by a team with over 10 years’ collective experience in Central Asia, having contributed to the discovery and growth of several Central Asian deposits. Our team brings deep technical expertise across orogenic and epithermal gold systems, as well as in sediment-hosted and porphyry copper deposits. We have in-house specialists in the fields of machine learning, spectral geology, and remote sensing; as well as the capacity to quickly digitize and dissect Soviet-era datasets. The net result is an incredibly strong, technically driven team with the capacity to focus on systematic generative efforts in the hunt for the next significant discovery in Central Asia.
