|Dr Reg A Olson Ph.D., P. Geol.|
North American Uranium Advisor
Dr Olson is one of Canada's foremost uranium advisors. While he has broad experience across a range of mineral commodities, he has a special interest in uranium, for which he commenced exploring in 1969. Between then and 1982, he explored extensively in western and northern Canada for various types of uranium deposits, including both Athabasca-type and Elliott Lake-type unconformity-related deposits, sedimentary and roll-front type deposits, vein type deposits, uranium-bearing IOGC deposits, and uraniferous pegmatites. He has visited numerous uranium camps and districts, including palaeoplacer deposits at Elliott Lake in Ontario and Witwatersrand in South Africa; unconformity deposits at Rabbit Lake, Cigar Lake, McLean Lake, Key Lake, McArthur River and Cluff Lake in the Athabasca Basin; basal conglomeratic deposits of the Blizzard-type in southern B.C.; the former Midnight mine near Spokane, Washington state; various sandstone-hosted deposits in the U.S.A. (e.g., tabular deposits in the Uravan district and Monument Valley, and Shinarump channel deposits in the Colorado Plateau; Gallup district in New Mexico, and South Texas roll-front surface-mineable deposits); and selected IOGC-style deposits (e.g., Wernecke breccias in the Yukon, and selected prospects in the Bear-Slave region of NWT).
His consulting career spans 40 years and includes exploration for and evaluation of precious metal (gold, silver, platinum group elements), base metal and uranium deposits. His exploration method and management expertise covers the range from grassroots to pre-feasibility stage exploration. His role with Kirrin includes the review of suitable uranium exploration projects in Canada, the identification of appropriate consulting and operating teams, the review of exploration plans and programs, monitoring plan and program implementation, the appraisal of results and recommendations for future programs.
Dr Olson gained his Ph.D. in Economic Geology from the University of British Columbia in 1977 and his M.Sc. in Economic Geology in 1971 from the University of Western Ontario. His B.Sc. Honours degree in Geology was awarded by the University of British Columbia in 1968. Dr Olson is the author or co-author of several academic publications. Among his exploration successes are the discovery of the George Lake and Goose Lake gold deposits at Back River region, NWT and the gold deposits existing within the Committee Bay region of Nunavut.
Dr Olson is a Professional Geologist with APEGGA, a Fellow of GAC and CIM, and a Member of CSPG, SEG, and PDAC. He is also a qualified person under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
Discovery Consultants has actively consulted to the mineral exploration industry since 1984. At present the firm has two partners, Tom Carpenter and Bill Gilmour. Both partners have more than 35 years world-wide exploration experience each and are Professional Geoscientists with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia.
Discovery provides full-service consulting to the minerals exploration and development industry. It provides clients with program design and planning; field collection of geochemical, geological and geophysical data; design and implementation of quality control and quality assurance procedures; supervision of programs; and compilation, interpretation and reporting of results. The programs can range from property examinations through to development drill programs.
Tom Carpenter and Bill Gilmour are qualified to write National Instrument 43-101 technical reports, used by clients listed on Canadian Stock Exchanges to report findings and to raise funds. As well, Discovery has collaborated with other professionals with specific expertise to produce 43-101 mineral resource reports.
Most of Discovery's recent clients have been Canadian junior mineral exploration companies, although in the past Discovery has worked for such majors as Teck-Cominco. In the last six years, Discovery's projects have included:
|Dr. David Lentz|
REE technical advisor
David Lentz has particular expertise in rare earth element and other granophile mineralized systems. He is Kirrin's leading REE advisor and his responsibilities include REE project selection both in Canada and internationally. Dr Lentz is a full professor on the Fredericton campus of the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and holds the UNB Economic Geology Chair. Prior to this he worked as a researcher with the Geological Survey of Canada and the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources. Dr Lentz is a professional geoscientist registered with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick and is a qualified person under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. For more than 20 years he has been an active volunteer in the field of geology and has made many outstanding contributions to the Geological Association of Canada¹s (GAC) Mineral Deposits Division. He received the GAC Harvey Gross Young Scientist Award in 1999, the Canadian Institute of Mining and Petroleum's Distinguished Lecturer Award for 2007/08, and the CIM Boldy Award in 2009. Dr Lentz is a major contributor within the geological community and is acknowledged internationally as a leading commentator on REE. He is a strong promoter of the GAC worldwide: in 2007 he received a GAC Distinguished Service Award. Dr Lentz is also an associate editor for several economic geology journals.
|Michel Proulx P.Geo. M.Sc.|
REE operating consultant
Michel Proulx was awarded his B. SC. in Geology in 1983 and his M. Sc in Rare Earth Elements Geochemistry in 1987, both by the Université du Québec à Montréal. He has worked in the public and private sectors, with particular emphasis on field exploration. He has long experience of managing geological teams as well as responsibility for developing and implementing regional exploration strategies. He is a Professional Geologist with Ordre des Géologues du Québec.
Michel was the first to recognise the REE potential in the Grevet Township, Québec and to develop a new REE stockwork-type mineralization model.
Michel has consulted to a 'who's who' of exploration and mining companies, among them Agnico-Eagle, Band Ore Resources, Cambior Resources, Entourage Mining, Freewest Resources, Furry Explorations, Galaxy Resources, GYG Exploration, Lynx Canada Exploration, Lyon Lake Mines, Matamec Resources, Murgor Resources, Ontrack Exploration, Osisko Explorations, Pro-Or Mining, Radisson Mining, Ressource Antoro and Starfire Minerals.
|Greg Moseley M.Sc.|
International Uranium Advisor
Greg Moseley's role with Kirrin Resources is the identification and review of suitable uranium exploration projects outside North America. Greg brings to this role over 40 years' experience in more than 25 countries, including senior positions with Gencor, Vengold and De Beers. His M.Sc. in Mineral Exploration was gained with Distinction from London in 1981 and included all critical elements of exploration and exploration management. The dissertation involved the development of a largely litho geochemical "Mineralisation Index" to discriminate mineralised granitoids.
During the past two years, Greg Moseley has applied his uranium experience to reviewing projects for Kirrin Resources in Botswana, Madagascar, Mozambique, Niger, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. His expertise in uranium comes from both the current period of interest in the commodity as well as from the in the 1970s, the last 'bull market' for uranium. During the latter period Greg Moseley gained particular experience in, inter alia, sandstone hosted, surficial and granitic hosted deposits.
In addition to his experience on the African continent, Greg Moseley has spent many years working in North and South America and in Asia. In Brazil, while responsible for Gencor's mineral exploration programmes in South America, Greg was responsible for bringing the Sao Bento and Santa Quiteria gold projects into production.
