SENIOR GEOLOGICAL & MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT
Bruce Rubin graduated with a degree in geology from The City University of New York in 1964, and completed a year of graduate study in geology at Rutgers University. He worked in the uranium industry from 1966 through 1983 in the Western U.S., Canada, and the Middle East, including positions as the Project Geologist on the Morton Ranch property in Wyoming for Teton Exploration, a division of United Nuclear Corporation, based in Casper, Wyoming, and later as the Senior Geologist-Western Division for General Public Utilities in Albuquerque.
His most notable accomplishment was the development of the uranium roll-front zonation concept for stratabound uranium deposits, as cited:
Rubin, B., 1970, Uranium Roll-Front Zonation in the Southern Powder River Basin, Wyoming: Wyoming Geological Society Earth Science Bull., Vol. 3, No. 4, December, pp. 5-12 (PDF).
A few years after the Three-Mile Island incident and subsequent decline in uranium exploration, he worked in industrial minerals and base and precious metals, and then for fifteen years as the managing editor of weekly newspapers and magazines, including three and a half years as the managing editor of Pay Dirt Magazine in Bisbee, Arizona. He also served as the Publications/Communications Director for the Northwest Mining Association based in Spokane, Washington.
Publishing under the pen name of Vincenzo Spiaggi, Mr. Rubin released his new book, The Antelope Farm, in August of 2013. This is his 10th novel, many of which have geological themes (here). Not only a geologist, his is also a management consultant, novelist, journalist, fine arts photographer, and screenwriter. He has lived and worked professionally throughout the United States, in Canada and the Middle East.
Mr. Rubin presently plays a significant role as I2M Associates’ Senior Geological and Management Consultant, serving in a variety of support functions, including mining property evaluations, exploration functions and personnel management, corporate communications, and marketing and associated activities.
