Dr. Doug Gould Bsc. (Chemistry) MSc. and PhD (Microbiology)
Dr. Gould is a retired senior research scientist who was employed at Natural Resources Canada's CANMET-‐MMSL labs in Ottawa where he worked as chief microbiologist principally active in mine and smelter site reclamation research. Dr. Gould works on a collaborative basis with ETDC where his expertise in microbiology and chemistry are important attributes to bring to the company. Dr. Gould played an important role in the research project that examined biological removal of arsenic using test facilities in Trail and as well completed important work on the subject in Ottawa. He has also helped develop stirred tank bioleaching techniques for leaching nickel ores. He is an expert in the microbiology of bacteria that are useful in metal removal processes. An expert in anaerobic bacteria he has many years of experience working with metal removal using bioremediation processes, including biofilms, permeable reactive barriers, anaerobic digestion and rhizofiltration. Dr. Gould pioneered the development of the DT-‐clay polymer, used in remediation work for mercury and has published on this class of compounds. He holds the U.S. patent on the use of dimercapto-‐thiadiazole for preventing acid mine drainage. He has published more than 60 papers in scientific journals, holds 5 patents and he published 16 book chapters and review articles, 44 conference proceedings and 109 client reports. He has given technical courses in South America (Brazil, Argentina and Chile), as well as throughout North America. He has also worked in research laboratories in Singapore and Japan.
In the past Dr. Gould has held adjunct professor positions at the State University of New York (Syracuse) and Carleton University (Ottawa). He is presently an adjunct professor at the University of Waterloo. He has served as co-‐advisor for numerous graduate students and been asked to be an external examiner for PhD students at four different universities.
