James Maxlow has spent over 25 years working as an exploration and mine geologist in Australia.
Dr James Maxlow was born in Middlesbrough, England in 1949.
James immigrated to Australia with his parents in 1953, where he grew up in Melbourne.
He initially studied Civil Engineering at the then Swinburne College, but soon became disillusioned with engineering and redirected himself to a degree in Geology at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, graduating in 1971.
After initially working as a mine geologist in Victoria, a brief sojourn into surveying, survey drafting, mine surveying and home building again saw James return to geology, this time in the Northern Territory and later in Western Australia.
His varying work experience being directly attributed to the fluctuating stock market and mining economy at the time – an unfortunate side effect of the profession.
James spent in excess of 25 years working as an exploration and mine geologist throughout much of Australia, gaining valuable field experience and knowledge, which he has since applied to research into his other passion – Earth Expansion.
Amidst a barrage of academic intolerance he gained his Masters in geology in 1995, followed by a Doctorate of Philosophy in 2002 at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia, including a letter of commendation from the university Chancellor for thought provoking original research.
James Maxlow interest in the Expanding Earth began when he worked in Western Australia.
James’ interest in Earth expansion stems from working in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The Pilbara region is a huge, ancient domal structure, several hundreds of kilometres across.
There, 2,500 million year old iron and silica-rich sedimentary rocks form the largest deposits of iron ore in the world.
What was so intriguing to James was that the bedded sediments, right down to finest sedimentary laminations seen in the iron ores, could be intimately correlated between widely separated sites for distances of over 300 kilometres.
James’ studies showed that, in the central portion of the Pilbara domal structure, some 30 kilometres of sediment and volcanic rocks had been eroded away.
It occurred to James that this domal structure may have been a preserved fragment of the ancient Earth, with the dome reflecting the radius of the ancient Earth.
The Pilbara Craton is an old and stable part of the continental lithosphere located in Pilbara, Western Australia.
The Pilbara Craton is one of only two pristine Archaean 3.6-2.7 Ga crusts identified on the Earth, with the Kaapvaal Craton in South Africa.
Both locations may have once been part of the Vaalbara Supercontinent or the continent of Ur.
Amazon sells a Kindle edition of his Terra non Firma Earth: Plate Tectonics is a Myth.
This book summarises research into Expansion Tectonics and is suitable for all persons interested in the geosciences.
In this book, modern geological, geophysical, and geographical evidence is used to recreate the entire 4,000 million years of our Earths geological history.
This evidence is then used to challenge the misconception that plate tectonics is the key to understanding our Earth sciences.
In contrast to a random plate tectonic process, the formation and break-up of each of the continents, as well as a sympathetic opening of all the oceans is instead shown to be simple, progressive and evolutionary.
All ancient magnetic poles are precisely located on Expansion Tectonic small Earth reconstructions of the ancient Earth, and all established poles and equators are shown to coincide with observed climate zones and biotic evidence.
Similarly, faunal and floral species evolution is shown to be intimately related to this progressive continental break-up and oceanic crustal development.
Global extinction events coincide with wholesale climate and sea-level changes, and the distribution of metallic ores and petroleum occurrences are readily comprehended.
