In 2023 Jessica took on the role of Senior Mineral Resource Geoscientist to coordinate efforts to maximize efficient and effective development and use of geoscience databases and tools. Jessica joined the BCGS in 2015 as the Mineral and Coal Assessment Geoscientist where she was responsible for the review of mineral and coal assessment reports and maintained the ARIS and COALFILE databases. Previously, Jessica worked as an exploration geologist in western and northern Canada on a variety of projects and mineral deposit types. During this time, she completed her M.Sc. degree at UBC (MDRU) on the Red Chris porphyry Cu-Au deposit.
