MSc Candidate Geology

Characterizing the geochemistry and alteration present at the Archean Hislop and Grey Fox gold deposits in Matheson, Ontario.


I completed my undergrad in Earth and Planetary Sciences at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec in 2011, after which I decided to take a break from school to work in the industry before beginning my MSc. I've had the fortunate experience of working in a wide variety of geological roles during this time, namely mapping and prospecting, core logging, and drill management for mineral exploration in Ontario and Quebec and as a wellsite geologist working in the oil sands in Alberta and shale gas in Pennsylvania. My MSc brought me back into the world of mining and mineral exploration, which has always been my passion, where I am focusing on increasing my knowledge of mineral deposits, how they form, and how to find them.

My current research project is focused on characterizing the geochemistry and alteration present at the Archean Hislop and Grey Fox gold deposits in Matheson, Ontario, under the supervision of Dan Kontak and Bruno Lafrance. The goal of my project is to come up with a genetic model for gold emplacement at the two deposits and how they relate to each other and to other deposits in the Abitibi, as well as identify potential vectors towards mineralization.
