M.Sc., Manager, Surficial Geology, Yukon Geological Survey
New Geoscience: Research and Knowledge for Exploration
Jeffrey Bond is a Surficial Geologist and Manager with the Yukon Geological Survey. Over the past 22 years, Jeffrey has explored many remote corners of Yukon in his goal to unravel its recent geological history. His research projects have spanned both the glaciated and unglaciated landscapes in the Territory. Projects have included reconstructing the glacial history of areas such as Whitehorse, the Pelly Mountains, the Big Salmon Range, Keno Silver District, White River area and early Pleistocene (2 Ma) glacial deposits along the Stewart River. Other projects have included placer gold studies in glaciated terrain (Mayo Mining District), collaborative drift prospecting projects with the Geological Survey of Canada (Anvil, Finlayson and Glenlyon districts), and soil geochemistry studies in the Klondike. Over the last three years Bond has shifted his focus towards Yukon placer geology and together with his team is responsible for documenting the geology and work history at more than 160 placer mines. Bond completed his B.Sc. in physical geography at the University of Calgary and holds a M.Sc. in geomorphology from the University of Alberta.
