Travis is a Quaternary geologist with expertise in surficial geology mapping, Quaternary stratigraphy, and surface sediment geochemical and mineralogical exploration methods.

Education

University of Victoria (B.Sc., 1999)

University of Victoria (M.Sc., 2004)

Expertise

After working five years in northeast British Columbia on aggregate potential assessments for the Ministry of Energy and Mines, Oil and Gas Division, Travis joined the British Columbia Geological Survey in 2007 as a Quaternary geologist. Since then he has mapped, and sampled tills, in the Interior Plateau of central British Columbia.  This work has focused on mineral potential assessments of underexplored areas and development of surface sediment exploration methods.  Most recently this research has investigated the use of porphyry indicator minerals, recovered from till samples, for detecting porphyry mineralization covered by Quaternary sediments.
