Current and recent projects comprise consultant research services and voluntary activities related to Geotourism and geoscience outreach. Examples of the former include an ongoing investigation of potential artisanal carving stone resources on the Labrador coast (Nunatsiavut Government), and work related to assessment of mineral potential in Nunatsiavut (Labrador) and Nunavut for planning purposes. Other previous projects include review of Earth Science textbooks, and research services related to legal matters connected to mineral exploration projects.

Outreach activities include long-term involvement in the 'geologist-in-residence' outreach program on Fogo Island, Newfoundland (Shorefast Foundation). Other current outreach activities include providing some geological advice and writing assistance to to the CABOX global geopark project in western Newfoundland, and development of geological hiking logs for sections of the East Coast Trail around St. John's.

Previous projects completed through the Geological Survey since 1995 are very diverse, and emphasized mineral deposits research (Rare-Earth Elements, gold, base-metals in VMS and sedimentary settings, magmatic sulphide deposits, iron-ore, granite-related mineralization, and various industrial mineral commodities). Regional geological mapping projects in both Newfoundland and Labrador were completed between 1985 and 1995. More details can be provided upon request.
