Dr. Rob Chapman
University of Leeds, UK
Rob gained a BSc, MSc and PhD in extractive metallurgy and worked on gold, platinum and Uranium in South Africa before joining the University of Leeds. His research interest shifted to the application of gold mineralogy in exploration geology and he has worked in many areas in the Canadian Cordillera for nearly 20 years.
Britt Bluemel, MSc
Presenting together on: Gold Atlas of British Columbia
PhD Student, University of Victoria
Rebecca is pursuing her PhD at the University of Victoria (Canada) under Dr. Dante Canil. For her research, she integrates her love of igneous petrology, field geology, and geochemistry by studying exhumed arc sections to better understand the magmatic processes that occur at depth. Her current research focuses on arc magma-wallrock interactions within the Jurassic Bonanza arc on Vancouver Island. Outside of her research, she is an avid runner, baker, and cat-mom to Owen & Jack.

Consultant, Geoscience BC
Trygve Höy received his BSc in geology from UBC, his MSc from Carleton University, and his PhD from Queens University. He spent 28 years with the BC Geological Survey Branch as a research economic geologist, mainly concentrating on mineral deposits and their setting. He has published numerous research papers and geological maps covering the more highly prospective exploration belts in the southern part of the province. He has been an exploration consultant since 2002, concentrating most of his work in British Columbia, as well as in the Arctic Islands, Ontario, Quebec, Mexico, Argentina and Chile. He is a registered member of the BC Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists.

MDRU MSc Candidate, MDRU University of British Columbia
Taylor graduated from UBC in 2019. He spent three summers in the Yukon and NWT doing mineral exploration. Taylor is a M.Sc. student at UBC studying the variability in porphyry fertility of arcs in BC, Arizona, and Chile; supervised by Dr. Craig Hart at the Mineral Deposit Research Unit (MDRU).

MSc Candidate, Diamond Exploration Training School (DERTS),University of Alberta
Gabrielle (Gaby) is an MSc candidate at the University of Alberta studying the petrogenesis of the Hogem batholith using a combination of whole rock geochemistry and zircon U-Pb, Lu-Hf, oxygen-isotope, and trace element geochemistry. Her supervisors are Dr. Graham Pearson (University of Alberta) and Luke Ootes (BC Geological Survey).

Professor, Thompson Rivers University
Lauch Fraser is a Senior NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Ecosystem Reclamation in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at Thompson Rivers University. Lauch joined TRU in 2004. He is an ecologist with expertise in grassland, wetland and rangeland ecosystems. Research in the Fraser lab is focused on ecological restoration, biodiversity and climate change.
