Transcript of Will Scott's Profile
William Scott That's me My work experience: When I am not in school, I work for a mineral exploration company called Matrix Aviation Solutions and Exploration Logistics. I have worked for matrix, on and off now, for about three years. In my position at Matrix, I am responsibnle for the construction of new camps. This entails efficient allocation of time, resources, and materials (as remote sites are subject to weather implications; thus, camp re-supply can be limited). Matrix provides the logistical capabilities for mineral companies. They construct and manage remote exploration camps for geologists and diamond drillers. As well, Matrix can provide aviation logistics and expiditing of fuel, food, and materials. This picture is an example of an exploration camp situated above the Arctic Circle. Here's a picture, at the same camp, that shows the ingenuity of the local labourers. These "igloo" style entrances to the Weather Haven tents, not only look cool, but prevent the snow from blowing over every night. Personal Profile In addition, I also assist in the camp management of already established camps. This means I coordinate daily / weekly flight loads, waste management, and other various construction projects; as well as, maintenance on tools, generators, vehicles, and heating and water systems. Here's an example of a camp relocation project I played a large role in. In addition to work experience, I am a fourth year business student at Mount Royal University. I am enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program, majoring in Marketing.
