Raymond Caron won a Ph.D. research poster award (2nd prize, doctoral category) at the 7th annual PDAC-SEG Student Minerals Colloquium held earlier this month in Toronto, where he presented his research entitled: Correcting airborne gravity data for overburden thickness using transient electromagnetic data. He introduced a new methodology that removes the gravitational contribution of sediment from gravity data using airborne transient electromagnetic methods. This research will benefit mineral exploration efforts in Canada and aquifer mapping, and may also aid city planning by revealing hidden bedrock topography. Raymond is co-supervised by Dr. Claire Samson, Dr. Michel Chouteau (Adjunct Professor) and Dr. Martin Bates (Sander Geophysics).


Congratulations, Raymond!
