Mitch has 35 years of experience in geological mapping and resource evaluation in British Columbia. He is a recognized authority on the remote and mountainous northwestern quadrant of the province. Mitch has a particular interest in the geological setting of volcanogenic massive sulphide, lode gold and porphyry deposits, and their tectonic/paleogeographic setting. His emphasis is on structural and volcano-stratigraphic controls to mineralization.


Mitch’s work at the BCGS has focused on mapping projects in northwest BC: Haines Triangle (Windy Craggy VMS district), Tagish Lake area (Llewellyn gold belt), Taku-Tulsequah area (VMS, mesothermal (orogenic) gold), Iskut River (VMS, porphyry Cu-Au), Jennings-Teslin Lake area (VMS) and the Atlin and Dease gold camps.
