Research that Rocks: 15 Years of International Collaboration, Enhancing Exploration and Resource Development

 About the Talk

Dr Hollings’ research is focused on the relationship between igneous petrogenesis and mineralization. This talk will highlight the results of that research in Northwestern Ontario.


About the Speaker

Dr. Hollings completed his Ph.D. at the University of Saskatchewan in 1998 where he investigated the geochemistry of the 2.7-3.0 Ga Uchi Subprovince from Red Lake to Pickle Lake. During a two-year NSERC funded postdoctoral fellowship at CODES Dr. Hollings participated in a multi-disciplinary research project investigating the genesis of giant copper-porphyry deposits in Chile. As a faculty member at Lakehead University since 2001, Dr. Hollings is continuing his research into the relationship between igneous petrogenesis and mineralisation in Northwestern Ontario, the Philippines and S America. Hollings is currently the Chair of the Department of Geology and Director of the Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Mining and Exploration, both at Lakehead University and the President of the Volcanology and Igneous Petrology Division of the Geological Association of Canada.
