The Howard Street Robinson Medal

The Howard Street Robinson Medal

2019 – JoAnne Nelson (British Columbia Geological Survey)

 

The Howard Street Robinson Medal recognizes a respected and well-spoken geoscientist who will further the scientific study of Precambrian Geology and/or Metal Mining through a presentation of a distinguished lecture across Canada. The medal is named in honour of Howard Street Robinson, a founding member of the GAC whose bequest to GAC in 1977 of approximately $100,000 makes the lecture tour possible. The bequest was ”for the furtherance of scientific study of Precambrian Geology and Metal Mining”. Thus the GAC’s Mineral Deposits Division awards the medal in odd years, and the Precambrian Division awards it in even years. The lecturer is nominated and chosen by the Howard Street Robinson Medal Committee.
