1927 - Engineering Geology

Victor Dolmage, a hardrock geologist with the Geological Survey of Canada, becomes “the first engineering geologist” in BC, leading the geological mapping of a tunnel on Mission Mountain as part of the first Bridge River project for the BC Electric Railway Company.

He later led the demolition of Ripple Rock in Seymour Narrows in 1958, an underwater mountain that had two peaks and was a major marine hazard.
