Andrea Baker

Associate Geochemist



Andrea has 10 years of geochemistry research and consulting experience which she gained during her PhD and subsequent postdoctoral research fellowship in the Earth Sciences Department at Stellenbosch University. Since joining SLR in 2020, Andrea has been involved in complex pit water quality modelling closure projects, mining waste source term generation, ground water quality investigations, TSF performance monitoring, waste assessments and site wide acid rock drainage and metal leaching risk assessments for licenses applications and closure planning. Andrea has generated several redox and speciation dependent geochemical source terms for numerical and reactive groundwater models for mine expansion and waste backfilling feasibility studies, as well as risk assessments for ESIA and prefeasibility studies for proposed mines and recommissioning / reclamation of rehabilitated pits and tailings.
