Survey Projects

  • Follow-up of selected geochemical anomalies, Newfoundland.
  • Reprocessing of existing geochemical data sets and assessment files to identify new exploration targets.

Research Interests

  • Interrelationships of drainage, overburden and bedrock geochemistry.
  • Development of real-time and rapid analytical techniques for geologists and prospectors.
  • Optimization of the use of field observations in interpretation of geochemical data.
