Travis Ferbey

Quaternary Geologist, British Columbia Geological Survey

Travis Ferbey is a Quaternary Geologist with the British Columbia Geological Survey. For the past 20 years, he has mapped and described surficial deposits in British Columbia where his work has focused on using drift sampling as a tool to assess the mineral potential of underexplored areas in the central part of the province, and conducting aggregate potential surveys in the northeastern part. More recently, Travis has further developed indicator minerals in tills as a method for detecting drift-covered base and precious metal deposits, in collaboration with colleagues at the British Columbia Geological Survey, the Geological Survey of Canada and universities. He currently offers a course in applied Quaternary geology at University of Victoria.
