Geophysx Jamaica is a privately held and funded Mineral Exploration company which has been operationally active in Jamaica since 2017. The company's name signifies our intent to do all required to "explore" (hence the "X"), to understand and discover the "physical" makeup and the "geology" of the island. As one of the only entities of our type in the island, we have nevertheless chosen to operate as best-in-class, and have committed to developing an in-house local team, trained and practiced in the various skills required for us to accomplish our mission. This includes exploration and mapping, operational safety, geochemistry, electromagnetic and magnetic surveying techniques, drone operation and, perhaps most importantly, diamond core drilling. We also operate the largest sample and data collection team in the region, and work closely with best-in-field minds from various parts of the world, to obtain the best training and guidance in all relevant geosciences, including novel techniques.
Our collective team has more than 150 years experience, and a passion for the island like no other...

Geologists and Geology Students:
Great opportunities available!
We are a Jamaican mineral exploration company and are expanding our outdoor and lab teams. Temporary sample collection team positions are available for up to $5,000 per day. Gain invaluable real-world experience in Soil, Stream and Rock sampling techniques. Become a team leader and see Jamaican geology in a new perspective! You may also get to learn the practical applications of aerial mapping, XRF and Hyperspectral scanning, airborne magnetometry, as well as novel sample preparation, microscopy and assay techniques.
Candidates must be willing to work outside in varied weather conditions and for extended periods in the daytime. As most geology students have already experienced, work will be performed in a variety of locations, sometimes including those with limited access, and candidates must be able to meet the physical demands of performing outdoor sample work, including hiking and occasional lifting of equipment or samples. Due to the nature of mineral exploration, sample work can occasionally entail the inadvertent collection of potentially hazardous materials.
