Ian Grant, AScT
I graduated from BCITâ??s Mining and Mineral Exploration Technology program in 2014 and have been working ever since at McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. in Prince George. Prior to graduation, I worked at Gibraltar Mine for a year as an Engineering Co-op Student, where I was heavily involved with environmental and geotechnical monitoring, surveying and reclamation. At McElhanney, I started out doing odd jobs and data entry, but soon began working on much more complex projects writing reports. Eventually I became proficient in AutoCAD Civil 3D and RoadEng, so I began to undertake design and drafting projects. Currently, I mainly design and drafts roads and open pit quarries, in addition to assessing permitting requirements and completing permit applications for these projects.
Why I Became A Technology Professional
- For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to work with rocks in the great outdoors and not be cooped up in an office. Becoming a Mining Technologist allowed me to accomplish both of these goals.
