The Geological Years



I spent the first 13 years after high school studying and practicing the art and science of geology. The studying was done at Acadia University in Wolfville, NS and Queens University in Kingston, ON; the practicing was mainly carried out in the Precambrian of Northwestern Ontario, with brief sojourns in south central New Brunswick and Northern Manitoba.

The following vignettes are proffered as interesting, and occasionally funny, slices of the geologist's life. A few have been published in edited form in the former "Odds and Sods" column in "The Northern Miner", The Global Mining Newspaper.
