Dr Tânia Martins

Tânia Martins obtained her PhD in Geology in 2009 from the University of Porto (Portugal) studying Li-Sn-Nb-Ta mineralization in granitic pegmatites. In 2010 and 2011 Tânia worked at the University of Manitoba, Canada, on the mineralogy of alkaline rocks and carbonatites. Tânia joined the Manitoba Geological Survey in November 2011 and has since May 2023, been Chief Geologist for the Precambrian Geoscience section.

Prof David Lentz
Promotions Manager

David Lentz (PhD 1992 University of Ottawa) is Research Chair in Economic Geology at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. His principal research interests include magmatic-hydrothermal associated with the formation of massive-sulphide deposits, porphyry Cu-Mo-Au systems, and granite-related Sn-W-Mo-Au skarn, IOA (Iron Oxide Apatite) and IOCG (Iron Oxide Copper-Gold, REY, U) systems.


Prof Jens Andersen
Publications Manager and Webmaster

Jens Andersen (PhD 1996 University of Copenhagen) is Associate Professor of Economic Geology at Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter, United Kingdom. His principal research focus is to develop our understanding of metals associated with igneous rocks, including PGE, Ni, Co, V, and Ti in mafic–ultramafic layered intrusions and Li, In, Sn and W in granite-related magmatic-hydrothermal systems.
