Introducing the GeoGold Team

Our company, GeoGold Kárpátia Ltd. – as the legal successor of GeoGold 2002 LP. established in 2002 – provides services in the field of hydrogeology, geology and shallow geophysics since 2005.

Our company works with well-trained, experienced geologists and geophysicists.

We have developed excellent relationships with Hungarian universities educating Geological and Geophysical courses; some of their most respected experts are regularly involved in our projects. 


We are proud to work with Dr. Imre Müller, who with a professional knowledge and commitment to science, helps GeoGold Kárpátia Ltd. in its long-term plans.

OUR TEAM

Antal Serfőző

I graduated as a Geologist from Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in 2001. That time I’ve been a member of Environmental Expert’s Office Ltd. for three years, working as a hydrogeologist.

From 1999 I had the opportunity to learn hydrodynamic modelling, which gave me a huge advantage later on. Spending five years at the company also highlighted my entrepreneurial spirit was stronger than to be an employee, so the combination of creativity and risk-taking character encouraged me to change.

In 2002, together with my university classmate István Bagi and other partners we established an LP, then an Ltd.

The name of GeoGold Kárpátia Ltd. refers to acquisition of water research projects from the whole Carpathian basin. Over the years, I have led numerous projects where cross-border professional relationships have proven to be very important. 

The protection of water resources orientated me towards water research supported by geophysics. We commenced instrument acquisitions with a Hungarian-developed geoelectric instrument and even today, we keep appreciating domestic R&D intellectual capital. . I truly believe our portfolio needs to be completed with product development.

2018 has been a turning point and the company’s dreams become true: GeoGold stepped forward and has undertaken water exploration projects in Tanzania. In the medium term we would like to further strengthen our international presence. 

In my personal life my top priorities and hobbies are providing proper education to my children, go running and hiking as well as reading books. 

Páll Zsuzsanna

I graduated from the Hungarian Faculty of Applied Arts/ Department of Textile Design in 2003. During my university years I took on Romanian-Hungarian translation and interpretation works for the Environmental Expert’s Office Ltd.. Those years were really difficult for the Hungarian textile industry and I was driven by curiosity and need for work, so I joined to GeoGold.

The beginning was not easy at all and the company got contracts through state and EU tenders. In exchange I learnt how to navigate in the maze of writing tenders and EU procurements. Later on, I also committed to dealing with public procurement documentations. My further responsibilities include office management, finance and banking.

Utilizing my creativity I work on website and flyers’ layout design and I create informative presentations. 

The GeoGold team is more like a family due to my efforts. “Little tricks” needed to be put in practice to achieve this; we celebrate birthdays with cakes, carnivals, May 1st and Christmas with outdoor cooking. 

Besides my family life, my creative being keps me going on and I also take part in group exhibitions.

Tibor Mátrahalmi

I have been working for the company since 2011, when I graduated as a Geologist with a specialization in hydrogeology from the Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary)

Over the years I have been involved in numerous geological and geophysical projects. My main responsibilities are about realization of water security plans and licensing of water wells.

As a kid I loved geography and liked to be evaluated at elementary and high school competitions.

Recently, one of my favourite projects was conducting water research tasks in Tanzania with a geophysical instrument improved by the company.

In my civil life I like playing chess, I teach chess as a FIDE-Master, and I also took a degree in chess coaching at Semmelweis University of Physical Education.

István Striczki

I graduated as a Geologist with a specialization in hydrgeology from the Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in 2011. I also earned a master’s degree in Economics from the Corvinus Unversity of Budapest in 2017.

I joined GeoGold Kárpátia Ltd. in 2011. Since then, I have been working on various hydrogeological and geophysical projects including planning, field survey and data processing. From the second half of 2017, I have been involved in the company’s financial and business management as well.

As a hydrogeologist, my favourite project is our water research project in Tanzania, where we had the opportunity to face with the severe problem of water scarcity. We could also witness what it means to be able to give real help through geological research.

Magdolna Ambrus

I graduated as a Geologist and Geophysical Engineer from the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I have 25 years of experience in groundwater protection where I’ve been able to make use of my human ecology academic expertise (graduated from Eötvös Loránd University- Budapest, Hungary).

As a project manager I coordinated several cross-border projects related to water resource management and nature conservation (throughout Romania, Hungary and Slovakia).

We have been working on numerous common topics and projects since GeoGold was founded. I am active member of the team since 2019 May. 

Recently I’ve been leading national and international water resource protection projects and participate in field measurements as well as research and design works.

My favourite pastimes are climbing, caving and diving, so the project in Aggtelek-karst area is much-loved one for me, where tasks are a complex compound of  nature conservation surveys, analyses and measurements.

Ilma Balázs

I’ve been working in the company since 2007 as a Geologist and Geophysical Engineer. 

During this time I participated and led several national and international hydrogeological and geophysical projects. At the beginning most of the tasks were focusing on diagnostic investigation of water resources and environmental protection. Nowadays geophysical surveys are gaining ground. 

Usually Ive been involved in projects as a true-born generalist dealing with field geophysical measurements, data processing and interpretation, well hydraulics testing, hydrodynamic modelling, planning and writing of tenders.

My favourites are classic research projects, where we use a variety of methods; we analyze data from different points of view and systemize them accordingly. That’s why I enjoyed so much the water research projects in Aggtelek and Tanzania.

Some say that lucky are people whose work coincides  with their hobby. I think that I’m one of those lucky persons, who also like hiking, climbing, and reading a lot.

Márton Bujdosó

I received my Master’s degree in Geophysics from Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in 2017. During my university years I had the opportunity to work on many projects and to practice what I had learnt. I joined the company in 2018 October, where my job is planning, implementing and evaluating engineering geophysical projects. I find it important to carry out field work precisely and effectively with having proper quality control, as some would say “There is no delicious food without good ingredients”.

I like to spend my free time in nature and do a lot of trips both inside and outside the country. I’m also passionate about taking classic and drone photos, which I would like to use for illuminating my professional presentations.

Bence György Fehérvári

 I’ve graduated from the Szent István University, (Gödöllő, Hungary) with a degree in Agricultural Environmental Management Engineering, specialized in Nature conservation and landscape ecologyin 2010. 

Geology, collecting minerals and fossils has been part of my life since my childhood. I participated in several kids’ camp as a volunteer and environmental educator. Later on, I organized nature conservation and geological education camps with the Pangea Cultural and Environmental Association.

I’ve been working with GeoGold KárpátiaKft. since 2018. My main tasks are preparation and coordination of field measurements, land adjusting, maintenance and storage of the special instruments.

My favourite project was the geophysical survey of radioactive waste repository, Bátaapáti, where I worked from the preparation stage till the completion of the measurements.

In my spare time I like to go hiking and I keep volunteering in my association. I take part in several environmental education and volunteering programs including river tours and archaeological excavations.

Sándor Jákfalvi

I graduated as a geologist and hydrogeologist from Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in 2010 and I’ve been working for GeoGold Kárpátia Ltd ever since. During my university years I took on field work at the company.

Over the years, I have been involved in hydrogeological and geophysical projects where my main tasks included diagnostic works of water resources, organizing field measurements, sampling and drilling. I also got familiarized with hydrodynamic modelling. 

My current responsibilities include hydrogeological modelling, field geophysical survey, instrument testing and developing. 

My favourite works  are related to complex research projects that combine hydrogeological, geophysical tasks and modelling, for example civil engineering of mobile dams and modelling of fractured aquifers.

As a hobby I’ve challenged myself in several team sports but cycling remains the most relaxing one.

Tamás Lukács

I graduated from Eötvös Loránd University as an exploration geophysicist and then as a hydrologist in 2017. I have been employed at the company since February 2019. Besides many field works, during my university years I mainly focused on borehole geophysics as well as modelling and inversion of geophysical NMR measurements.

Currently, my main activities concern the design, implementation, data processing, evaluation and project management of near-surface geophysical surveys. My favourite parts of the work are special, non-standard data processings and evaluations that require programming and theoretical problem-solving abilities. My hobbies are hiking and photography.

Dr. Imre Müller

Returning from Switzerland to Hungary in 2002, as a retired university professor I immediately joined hydrogeological education at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. That’s when I met the founders of GeoGold. Many professional conversations, field trips, and the application of geophysical methods led to sympathy and friendship. I have been part of the new scientific adventure and challenges where I was not only a professional advisor but also a really good friend following the path of GeoGold… as if I were a “Godgrandfather”.
