Chief Executive Officer & Director
Reli Wald is a geologist and geophysicist researcher at Israel Chemicals R&D Institute with over 20 years of academic and professional experience. Her MSc focused on a major paleoecological shift in the northern Negev, Israel. Using field mapping and petrology she tracked the drowning of the Cenomanian carbonate shelf. During her PhD she specialized in seismic stratigraphy and 3D modelling that bridge between geological and geophysical data-sets. Her model produced a subsurface cube down to 1000m below the surface of the northern valleys of Israel providing engineering, seismological and hydrological information relevant for infrastructure planning and exploration. Reli worked at Shefa Gems during a period of vast findings within the Kishon Mid-Reach. She produced a 3D model of the alluvial placer and took part in major exploration activities towards defining it as an Indicated Resource (2014-2016). Reli’s PhD study area partly overlaps Shefa Gems exploration permit. Thus, she contributes her knowledge from the subsurface of the northern valleys into Shefa Gems Source-to-Sink model.
