The Environmental Geochemistry Group at the University of Saskatchewan is led by Dr. Matthew Lindsay, who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and the NSERC/Syncrude Industrial Research Chair in Mine Closure Geochemistry. Our research examines how interactions among chemical, biological and physical process influence element distribution and mobility in groundwater and surface waters. Much of our research is aimed at constraining relationships between minerals, metal(loid)s, and the biogeochemical cycling of carbon, sulfur and iron. Our overall research objective is to develop new strategies for mitigating impacts of mining and other anthropogenic activities on water resources.
