Bruno Lafrance

Professor of Structural Geology
Laurentian University

Dr. Bruno Lafrance is a structural geologist with the Mineral Exploration Research Centre and a professor at the Harquail School of Earth Sciences, Laurentian University. He specializes on the applications of structural geology to the study of ore deposits. His research focuses on the primary structural controls on the formation of ore deposits and their subsequent modification during orogenic events. Although most of his research has been on gold and volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits, Dr. Lafrance also research the structural controls on the formation and modification of Ni-Cu-PGE deposits in Sudbury, Ontario, and gold endowment on craton scale in the Archean Superior Province.
