Expertise

Fiona joined the BCGS in 2012 to assist in geospatial compilation of the provincial bedrock mapping, and then took on the role as Regional Geologist for the Southeast in 2013. Prior to that, she worked as a geologist in industry for mineral exploration companies in the Kootenays, and as a basin analyst examining the sedimentology, stratigraphy, diagenesis, magmatic history, geophysics, and structure of Cordilleran continental, marine, and transitional deposits.  She proposed and managed multi-year resource exploration projects including mapping, 3D modeling, resource evaluation, and grade control at a small mine. In addition, she consulted as a geomorphologist, mapping Pleistocene glacial sediments and modern-day depositional environments.
