Karsten Berg studied geology at Technical University of Berlin (1974-80). At the same university concluded 1982 with a doctor title in Earth Science, specialized in geochronology and magmagenesis. Afterwards realized a postdoc in Chile (1983) and a grant ‘Feodor Lynen’ from Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation (Universidad de Chile 1984-86).
Three discoveries in exploration are pointed out here, two metallic (Codelco-Chile, 1991-2004) and one non metallic (Exploraberg, 2008):
Gaby Sur Project (1996), since 2008 Mine Division Gabriela Mistral (5.5 MT-Cu).
Casualidad Project (2003), Altamira/Taltal district, since 2004 ’discovered’ and studied afterwards by EMSA-geologists (1.5 MT-Cu, first IOCG-discovery for Codelco).
Squaremeter big sapphire outcrop of corundium-aluminium oxide deposit (2008), principally covered by sanddunes, IOCG-district Cerro Negro, North of Copiapó (scientific, but apparently not commercial interest).
