Dr. Stewart Blusson and his wife, Marilyn, share an enthusiasm for the wilderness and the stimulation of discovery; and together they explore broad horizons. In 1981, he left the Geological Survey to explore the modes of formation of mineral deposits from Mexico to the Arctic, piloting his own plane and helicopter over vast areas. He discovered a number of important occurrences of gold, copper and other metals in Canada and the U.S.; most recently a diamond-bearing kimberlite pipe in the Northwest Territories in 1991. Dr. Blusson continues to conduct arduous scientific fieldwork in the mountains of northern and western Canada and in the Canadian Shield. Energetic, determined and innovative, he quietly pursues dreams of new discoveries.
