Michelle McKeough M.Sc.
Michelle attained a B.Sc. Geology (2008) and M.Sc. Geology (2013) from the University of New Brunswick with a focus in geochemistry and economic geology. She began working with Terralogic Exploration in 2010, carrying out field exploration and drilling programs while completing her thesis work. During this time, exploration projects in northern Saskatchewan coincided with her research, which incorporated a regional study evaluating the enrichment of uranium, thorium, and rare-earth metals in pegmatites.
After graduating with a M.Sc. Geology she moved to Cranbrook, BC and continued to work with Terralogic Exploration on various exploration projects in northern Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Her experience in the exploration industry to date includes: on-site project management, including logistics and budget control; historical data compilation and property assessments; technical report writing; regional geological mapping (1:10K – 1:20K) to detailed trench outcrop mapping (1:5K – 1:1K); geochemical surveying, including biogeochemical, till, soil, stream-sediment and lake-sediment; gamma-ray spectrometer surveying; oriented drill core logging and chip logging; managing geochemical, geological, and downhole drilling data, including QA/QC of data; 2-D and 3-D analysis of drill hole data.
She has assisted in planning and carrying out successful exploration projects in the following ore deposit types and mining districts in Canada:
Epithermal silver-gold-base metal targets, Golden Triangle, north western British Columbia;
Volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) and mesothermal gold targets in the La Ronge Gold Belt, Tabbernor Lake Belt, and Flin Flon Belt, northern Saskatchewan;
Uranium+/-thorium-rare earth metal targets: basement-hosted and Athabasca Basin-hosted, northern Saskatchewan;
Multiple vein-hosted and structural-controlled gold, silver, and base metal targets in the Cariboo Mining District and Kootenay Mining District, British Columbia.
