About the Author
WryHeat is written by Jonathan DuHamel
I am a retired economic geologist and have worked as an explorationist in search of economic mineral deposits, mainly copper, molybdenum, and gold. My exploration activities have been mainly in the Western U.S. including Alaska. I have also worked in Mexico, South Africa, Ireland, and Scotland.
Exploration geologists are trained not only in the geologic sciences, but also in chemistry, physics, botany, and geostatistics. I am also trained in the natural history of the Sonoran Desert.
After graduating from The Colorado School of Mines with a Geology Engineering degree and Master of Science degree, and before practicing as a geologist, I served as an officer in the Army Chemical Corps assigned to a unit that tested experimental weapons and equipment.
