Petroleum Assessment Geologist - Tiffani Fraser

Petroleum Assessment Geologist


Tiffani joined the Yukon Geological Survey in 2006 and is currently involved in oil and gas related research in Liard and Eagle Plain basins. She also acts as a liaison between the Yukon Oil and Gas Resources Branch and the Yukon Geological Survey. Tiffani was a member of the 2006-2009 multi-agency project: “Regional Geoscience Studies and Petroleum Potential, Peel Plateau and Plain, Northwest Territories and Yukon” with the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office and the Geological Survey of Canada. Tiffani has been employed in the oil and gas industry in Calgary, and in surficial mapping studies in northern B.C., Yukon and Alaska. As a student, she was a geological assistant for a regional mapping project on northern Ellesmere Island.
Tiffani graduated from the Geography departments at McGill (B.A. 1993) and Carleton University (M.A. 1995), and from Geology at the University of Calgary (B.Sc. 2001). Her Master's thesis looked at surficial 'muck' deposits in the Klondike region of the Yukon.
