    My research is focused on the structural geology and mineral deposits in Archean greenstone belts, particulary in the area of Shoal Lake, Ontario. I also have an interest in Rice Lake area, Manitoba.. Shoal Lake and the surrounding area has a long history of gold mining dating to before the opening of the Winnipeg Aqueduct in 1919. Cougar Metals NL currently holds options on the Shoal Lake gold properties held by Sheridan Platinum Group Ltd. and Kenora Prospectors & Miners. I have supervised or co-supervised several research projects by B.Sc. students examining the geology and geophysics of Little Cameron Island where the Duport Mine is situated and the structural geology of the Duport Deformation Zone.
