Brendon Samson

MSc Candidate Geology

Brendon joined Metal Earth in 2017 as a MSc student studying structural geology. His research is focused on the structural history and control of lode gold mineralization in the Malartic segment of the Larder Lake – Cadillac Deformation Zone in close proximity to the Canadian Malartic gold mine.

Originally from Saskatchewan, Brendon graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a BSc Honours degree in Geology. While obtaining his undergraduate degree, Brendon was involved with the earth science student group by assisting with organizing events, managing fundraising efforts and acting as a student representative for APEGS. During the summer field season, he worked for the Saskatchewan Geological Survey as an assistant for a reconnaissance mapping project. His undergraduate research project developed during the field season, which focused on the field relationships, petrology and geochemistry of a magmatic Ni-Cu deposit occurring in layered-mafic intrusions. Upon graduation in 2016, he worked as an analyst for an investment attraction initiative led by the Economic Development Division of the Saskatchewan Provincial Government.
