2 POSITION TITLE CLASSIFICATION Senior Project Geologist MINISTRY AND DIVISION Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources: Geological Division BRANCH AND SECTION Mineral Resources UNIT OR PROGRAM GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION Victoria SUPERVISOR'S POSITION TITLE Manager, Geoscience Projects SUPERVISOR'S CLASSIFICATION PROGRAM FUNCTION (Purpose of the program and of the organization in which the position operates) The main purpose of the project geology section is to conduct research and make interpretations in the field of economic geology to develop genetic models to aid exploration in the mining industry and to assist government, metal and coal resource development planning and policy. The research is based on geological mapping and interpretation of petrographic, geochemical and geophysical analyses. PURPOSE OF POSITION AND SUMMARY OF ITS FUNCTIONS The principal function of this position is to investigate, evaluate and revise or develop genetic models concerned with ore deposits and districts, coal deposits and fields, or geothermal resources. Key duties are: to propose projects and carry out research on ore deposits and known or potential ore districts on coal rank and type utilizing geological mapping and petrographic, geochemical and geophysical analyses, as well as scientific literature research; to devise genetic models of the formation of ore deposits, or to improve existing models, and to predict the extent and location of areas with the probability of discovery of future metal resources. Similarly to devise models explaining the causes and patterns of variation in coal quality and predict projections of coal-bearing strata. Also to determine the mineral or coal reserves and to estimate the potential resources on areas of study; dissemination of research results by: giving talks to geoscience, exploration and mining associations; preparing detailed geological reports and maps for publication by the ministry or in recognized scientific journals preparing written internal reports for the ministry or other agencies; holding informal discussions with members of the exploration and mining community, ministry staff and staff of other ministries to act as consultants to government and industry on resource and land use problems on the basis of accumulated regional expertise as well as on subjects such as slope stability and geotechnical conditions, groundwater supply, geothermal resources, terrain morphology, etc.; to encourage exploration for new metal and coal resources through interaction and advice to personnel in industry; to educate other geoscientists in government, industry and universities, prospectors, and the public in general through lectures on geology. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND WORKING ENVIRONMENT The Manager, Geoscience Programs, reports to the Chief Geologist in parallel with the managers of three other sections, Applied Programs, Resource Data and Analysis, and Analytical Laboratory.

3 ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND WORKING ENVIRONMENT (CON'T) The Manager, Geoscience Programs, reports to the Chief Geologist in parallel with the managers of three other sections, Applied Programs, Resource Data and Analysis, and Analytical Laboratory. The Manager, Geoscience Programs, has a permanent staff of 17 with approximately seven man years of auxiliary staff. The permanent staff includes 10 LSO who are senior project geologists, and project geologists reporting directly to him plus a secretary receptionist, senior draftsman and three technical assistants, and engineering assistant who is lapidary and scientific photographer, and an engineering assistant who is in charge of field and equipment and instruments, vehicles, purchasing and assistant curator of mineral rock, fossil collections. Summer field staff includes about 3-4 graduate geologists and undergraduates. Winter technical assistants include one or two graduate geologists and two co-op students from University of Victoria, In addition, there is a supervisor of the regional geochemical survey, and experienced exploration geologist, on contract for 8-9 months to expedite this program. The budget of Project Geology and the supplementary programs was $1, in During field work the Senior Project Geologist supervises a crew of 1-6 persons depending on the project or its stage of completion. He directs their efforts and coordinates the logistics necessary to conduct the field work. Where necessary, he instructs them in the objectives, techniques and methods of geological mapping and interpretation. In the office he instructs technicians in advanced plotting and laboratory methods. He cooperates with and discusses mutual scientific problems and aids projects geologists. A high level of self-motivation is essential to the Senior Project Geologist because supervision received is minimal. Projects are proposed as a result of discussions between the Chief Geologist, the Manager, Geoscience Programs, and Senior Project Geologists. From these discussions, general, mutually agreeable, terms of reference are drawn up which describe the goal of the project. Within these guidelines, the Senior Project Geologist has complete freedom in his method of attack. Results are reviewed annually to ensure that they conform to policy guidelines. Technical results of the projects are generally accepted without question. POSITION'S SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS AND HOW THEY ARE PERFORMED The specific functions of the position involve three major divisions: 1) Research consisting of office, laboratory and literature components; 2) Geological mapping and interpretation; and 3) Communications, Consultation, liaison and education % Research involves office, laboratory and literature research and report preparation by: preparing preliminary report for "Geological Fieldwork"; preparing preliminary maps; assigning duties and supervising technicians to curate collections, conduct routine petrography, input data to computers, etc.; selecting critical samples for chemical, petrographic and isotopic analysis; researching in a library; petrographic analysis; interpreting geological, geochemical or chemical results; finalizing interpretations of the geology of areas and ore deposits; synthesizing results to produce conceptual models; designing tests of developing conceptual models; determines the mineral or coal reserves and estimates the potential resource in areas of study; preparation of finished geological manuscript for publication and maps for lithographing; keeping abreast of current concepts and techniques in the field of economic geology.

4 POSITION'S SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS AND HOW THEY ARE PERFORMED (CON'T) 2. Geological mapping and interpretation consisting of: 30% project design, budget preparation and staffing proposals; directs pre-project data assembly including airphotos, maps, geoscience background information, mineral inventory, liaison with industry to establish mutual cooperation logistical support, and understanding of objectives toward the same area, and possibly commissioning new airphoto coverage of map or orthophoto preparation; evaluation of existing data; coordinate logistical preparation; coordinate equipment preparation and assembly and mobilization in field; preparation of general work plan, for review, direction and assignment of duties, setting and maintaining sampling and other standards; field administration; budget and logistical control; coordinates work of geological assistants, assesses results, and carries out mapping in critical areas; reviewing progress and adapting plans to meeting changing pattern revealed by progress of work; supervision in assembling field data and interpretations; field interpretation of geology and structure and significance of work. NOTE: Rocks are not scientific instruments. Analysis and mapping rocks required a deep and broad knowledge of environments of deposition, origin of rocks, etc. and considerable experience, imagination and intuition. That is, a rock outcrop is interpreted, not simply mapped % Communication, consultation, liaison, and education: lectures to exploration and geological communities to communicate details of genetic models from projects and to outline new exploration concepts; consultation to industry to initiate new or extended exploration plays, novel methods of geological study conducted to discover new exploration concepts, etc.; special resource analysis studies for ministry related to accumulated regional or commodity expertise; lectures to general public or prospectors classes on geology or resources; Liaison with committees of professional societies, other government agencies; Continuing education at workshops, conferences, etc. NOTE: The research aspect of the position is its prime function. Field and analytical work conducted form the data base on which the conceptual models are founded. 1. QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS Education, Experience and Occupational Certification An advanced degree in geology or geological engineering (preferably a Ph.D.) plus eight years relevant experience beyond the Bachelor degree. Registration as a Professional Engineer in BC or a Professional Geologist. The experience must include at least four years of economic geology, exploration or mining geology and should include experience in at least one other discipline, geochemistry, structure, stratigraphy or petrology. A senior Project geologist must have produced at least one Ministry Bulletin to completed manuscript stage or equivalent publication; have at least five significant papers published, some in recognized scientific journals; and be broadly known as an authority in Canada.

5 QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS (CON'T) 2.
