VANCOUVER – David S. Jennings, born in 1942 and lately director of project development at Hunter Dickinson Inc., has passed away. He was born and raised in Pennsylvania but after completing his PhD at McMaster University, he stayed in Canada working for Anaconda at Britannia, British Columbia, mapping and interpreting the geology of the region, and then continued with Cypress Anvil in Faro, Yukon. Subsequently, Jennings worked with several exploration companies in the Vancouver mining community and from 1996 became a principal of Hunter Dickinson. Dave is remembered as a brilliant and passionate geoscientist but even more importantly, as an honest and good-hearted person whose advice and friendship were widely sought.
A celebration of Jennings’ life and contributions to the mineral exploration industry will be held for all his friends and colleagues on Monday, June 13, 2005, 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Cristal Room, The Metropolitan Hotel, 645 Howe Street, Vancouver, B.C.
