Timothy J. Barrett graduated in geology with a B.Sc. (1972) and M.Sc. (1974) from the University of Toronto, and a D.Phil. from Oxford University (1979).

Following a NATO post-doctorate fellowship in Germany where his work was related to the Deep Sea Drilling Project and on-land ophiolites, Tim returned to the University of Toronto from 1982-86, as a University Research Fellow, where he continued work on these topics and participated in three oceanic research cruises to the Southern Explorer Ridge, in search of active seafloor hydrothermal systems and massive sulfide deposits.

At McGill University (1986-1992), through an IREM-MERI project, Tim was involved in a multi-year study of volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits in the Noranda mining camp of Quebec. From 1993 to 1996, at the Mineral Deposit Research Group, University of British Columbia, he acted as research coordinator for a major project on VMS Deposits of the British Columbia Cordillera. Since 1997, Tim has been involved full-time as senior geologist, Ore Systems Consulting.
