The southwest zone breccia-centered silica-undersaturated alkalic porphyry Cu-Au deposit, Galore Creek, B.C : magmatic-hydrothermal evolution and zonation, and a hydrothermal biotite perspective - University of British Columbia, 2009 - Available digitally through University of British Columbia (pdf, 7.4MB)

Biography: I attended Trinity College Dublin from 2000 to 2004 earning a BA. mod. in Geology. From 2004 to 2007 I worked as an exploration geologist, in Ireland and Mongolia, exploring for a variety of resources. I joined the MDRU in January 2007 enrolling in the masters with thesis program.

Project: My thesis focuses on characterizing the lithologies, alteration and mineralization of the Southwest Zone breccia-centered Cu-Au prospect in the Galore Creek alkalic porphyry Cu-Au district. Developing a genetic model for the Southwest Zone will contribute to ongoing international collaborative studies and the fundamental understanding of alkalic porphyry Cu-Au deposits.
