Jürgen Kraus 

Geologist and Ph.D

Jürgen Kraus was born into the former Benedictine brewery “St. Michaelsberg” in Bamberg, Franconia (Northern Bavaria). Bamberg offered 65 breweries at around 1900 of which 10 still exist. It is widely considered to be the world’s beer capital, offering the unique “Rauchbier”.

Jürgen is a structural geologist and international exploration geologist with his own consulting company, Franconia Geoscience Ltd. He is also a director of the Canadian Global Exploration Forum (CGEF) and co-chair of CSPG’s International Division. Jürgen held his first petroleum-related position in 1987. He received an M.Sc in Structural Geology and Geophysics from Göttingen University in 1991 and a Ph.D. in Structural Geology from the University of New Brunswick in 1998.

After assignments with the Geological Survey of Canada in Ottawa, Aachen Technical University, and the Saskatchewan Geological Survey, he joined Shell Canada in 2001 and created drillable prospects in the Foothills at Waterton and Pincher Creek. After establishing his consultancy in 2003, Jürgen has created prospects and developed new play concepts in deformed basins in China, Mongolia, North Africa, and Europe. He also worked on Inca gold deposits in the Ecuadorian Andes.
