About Us

We are a 501 c3 tax exempt non-profit science corporation.

MagmaChem Research Institute

This research institute solely exists for the progression of a socially responsible public. Our geologic models are specific and predictive, helping to develop a more sustainable future for Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG).

Our vision is to change the way people observe the Earth; and our mission is to transfer to industry, academia, government and the public these innovative and integrative concepts and technologies for a better understanding of the Earth and its processes.

For over 50 years now, MagmaChem has been hard at work figuring out this planet. With most of the funding coming from major oil and mining exploration companies, we've been compiling world-wide data and synthesizing the data of the natural history of our planet. You are becoming part of an amazing story that will carve a future that looks nothing like the past.

Become a member today and gain access to the latest publications and webinars from the MagmaChem team. See our YouTube page for examples of the webinar series from 2020 and the new publications of 2021.

  • I have known Stan Keith and Monte Swan for over 20 years. They have always been pioneers ... always thinking way ahead ...way out of the box. The Geosciences are mainly an inexact science and the importance of that open creative mind and the power to visualize the processes is key. Coming out of this “lock-in" time frame it’s even more important to think with such an open mind that the earth’s integrated processes are clear and respected to bring mankind forward to discover their own potential and the magnitude of new ideas. With Troy Tittlemier on board, they have that creative energy to propel them forward. Magmachem is a company to watch. - - - Susan Morrice, Geologist and Co-Founder and Chairperson Belize Natural Energy

  • You can throw any tectonic, geophysical, mineralogical, and geological question at this Model, - and you can find it's solution and explanation from using it. - - - Martin Hovland PhD, former Engineering Geologist with Statoil, Professor Emeritus University of Bergan, Senior Advisor Shell

    Because Magmachem is so utterly data driven, they now possess a world class mineral and relationship database that may support both exploration for minerals and hydrocarbons for years to come. Their data base is also a true treasure trove that ideally should be subjected to voluminous research by clever students somewhere. - -  Hans K Johnsen, PhD, Petroleum Engineer and former Program Manager Staoil's New Ideas R&D Group

  • The MagmaChem Earth System Model is unique and immensely powerful as an analytical tool, which can be used to explain mineral deposits of all types, - saline, lacustrian, deep-sea, hydrothermal, or volcanic. It represents a powerful dynamic, synoptic, and analytical tool, which can be used to understand mineral deposits and also act as a powerful predictive tool to finding several types of mineral deposits in relation to rock types, the tectonic setting and its history of any global area in question. Therefore, this is the professional geophysical explorationists ultimate tool of choice. - - - Martin Hovland PhD, former Engineering Geologist with Statoil, Professor Emeritus University of Bergan, Senior Advisor Shell

    The most intriguing concept of the MagmaChem technology is the unique Layered Chemical, Petrological and Geophysical Mantle Model which explores the consequences of plate tectonics in a much larger detailed framework, where the different processes operate in a larger context than previously known. These processes set up movements of masses and heat from the inner to the outer parts of planet Earth, through magmatism and movements of hydrothermal fluids, processes that lead to the fractionation of the mobilized masses into mixtures of the various components. Furthermore, they have developed an advanced system for modeling these processes both in time and space allowing them to make predictions of the potential occurrences of mineral resources within a region. - - - Hakon Rueslatten, Geologist and former Research Advisor at Statoil R&D Center, Trondheim.
