Ian Burron

PhD Student
University of Manitoba

Ian Burron is a geologist and PhD candidate at the University of Manitoba with experience working on uranium, gold, and magmatic sulfide deposits. He is currently studying the geochemistry of how and why uranium is sourced, deposited, altered, and remobilized in uranium deposits to better understand their origin and histories, as well as guiding government policy for disposal of high-level nuclear waste. His previous research includes using geochronology to constrain atmospheric chemistry and ore deposition in South Africa’s Witwatersrand goldfields and developing geochemical mineral exploration methods. His industry experience includes working as a geologist on the Madsen Gold Project in Red Lake, Ontario, conducting fee-for-service analytical work for various companies, as well as independent prospecting in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.
