Mr. Jimmy Goolsby, Geologist and member of the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, states “Mr. Graeme Finley grew more both personally and professionally than anyone I have worked with during my career.

The mission of the Wyoming Board of Professional Geologists is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by promoting the practice of geology by professional geologists and by providing fair and balanced regulation of the geologic profession.
The Board's regulatory responsibility includes the discipline of professional geologists licensed in Wyoming as well as seeking the prosecution of unlicensed persons who violate the Wyoming Geologists Practice Act.
