Services provided range from basic sample preparation to research development and providing analytical tools to enable research objectives, aiding in initial grant proposals and report and manuscript writing in intepretational stages.
A specialist in;
Igneous and metamorphic petrology (e.g. tectono-magmatic and mineralisation processes).
Fluid inclusion assemblage petrography and microthermometry (e.g. oil-gas or mineralising fluid migration).
Stable isotope systematics in high-and low-temperature geochemical systems.
Gas isotopes and geochemistry.
Report and grant writing/compiling research data and interpretation.
Petrographic sample preparation, descriptions and interpretation;
Thin section and other mounted media preparations at HD Analytical Solutions.
Petrographic descriptions and interpretation.
Advice and assisting in geological/archaeological field-based operations;
Geological mapping and sampling.
Geochemical profile sampling.
Applications of other geochemical techniques to enhance research objectives;
Contacts with Canadian University analytical facilities provides an in-road to the best facilities to provide additional petrologic and geochemical analyses where required. I am experienced in a range of analytical tools;
electron microprobe analyses.
CL and UV petrography.
fluid inclusion microthermometery and laser-Raman/FTIR spectroscopy.
stable isotope analyses and application and interpretation of various other geochemical data.
Personal access to, or secondment out to trusted university facilities across Canada with whom I have close connections.
Tutorials/workshops in petrography, petrology and geochemical analyses can also be arranged.
Rates are negotiable depending on objectives (i.e. Industry versus Academic research collaborations). Thin-section services are listed here.
