“Writing is hard for every last one of us — straight white men included. Coal mining is harder. Do you think miners stand around all day talking about how hard it is to mine for coal? They do not. They simply dig.” – Cheryl Strayed

Kylie Williams

Kylie Williams is a communications specialist and geoscientist. After working on base metal and diamond exploration projects in Australia, North America and Europe for almost a decade, she turned to science writing and copy creation.

Kylie now writes about the science and technology that make mineral exploration and mining more efficient and sustainable. She is passionate about the human side of the industry too, especially sharing stories about keeping workers and communities safe and healthy, protecting the environment, and building an equitable and socially responsible industry.

Allegra Whistler, Science Communication Intern 2018

Allegra is in her final year of undergraduate studies at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in the Earth Science program. She is interested in multiple earth science topics, and recently finished her first mineral exploration field season and completed an undergraduate thesis in hydrogeology. Allegra is enthusiastic about science outreach and enjoys teaching children about the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).

Allegra joined the Resources Writer team in September 2018 to work with Kylie as a Science Communication Intern. While working with Kylie, she hopes to establish her voice in science communication and grow her network.

Kylie was featured on the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES) blog. Read my story here: Geoscientist & Science Writer: Kylie Williams
