Belgian geologist who taught at the Polytechnic Faculty of Mons, which was named École des Mines at the time. He prospected in the Congo and more particularly in Katanga, where he discovered immense riches. A mineral discovered in this region now bears his name: Cornetite. He and his team were given a very detailed map of the main copper deposits in the region, part of which was used to finance other shipments.
He was attached to the expedition Bia-Franqui (1891-1893). He died on 17 May 1929, aged 64.
