Peter WinterburnIt is with great sadness and shock that Bureau Veritas Minerals informs you of the passing of a great friend and colleague, Dr. Peter Winterburn on June 21, 2019 in Chile. Peter is well known and respected in the geosciences community globally for his work in the mining industry and as a professor at the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at the University of British Columbia (MDRU of UBC). While at MDRU, he mentored and advised several M.Sc. graduate students and was a key to the scientific advancement of exploration geochemistry.

Following his tenure as NSERC/AcmeLabs/Bureau Veritas Minerals Industrial Research Chair in Exploration Geochemistry at MDRU, Peter returned to industry to work for Vale, based in Santiago, Chile. Peter’s sharp wit, kindness, and contributions to mineral exploration will be deeply missed. Our condolences go out to Peter’s family and his many friends.
