Ed moved to Kamloops in 1996 from northern Ontario, where he mapped volcanic terranes and the glacial record throughout the Precambrian shield for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS). With the OGS he was Wawa District Staff Geologist and entered the private sector in 1990 as a mineral exploration geologist, primarily in BC and Ontario. He enjoys teaching and has been a geology lab instructor at TRU and Douglas College. Today he is semi-retired with exploration projects in Ontario and locally conducts school presentations, field trips, and public mineral and rock identification sessions through the outreach program of the Kamloops Exploration Group.
