Dr. Fred Breaks, P.Geo.Advisor
Dr. Breaks is an independent geological consultant. He received his PhD in geology from Carleton University and spent 29 years at the Ontario Geological Survey. Dr. Breaks has extensive experience with petrography, mineralogy, litho- and mineral chemistry of most Archean shield rock types in a wide variety of domain settings including greenstone-rich belts to high grade metamorphic granitic gneiss and metasedimentary migmatite belts. He has 118 publications at the Ontario Geological Survey and numerous external publications (see http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Frederick_Breaks). Dr. Breaks is experienced in most deposit-types in shield areas including rare-earth elements, uranium, lode gold, banded iron formation, base metals and lithium-rich, rare element pegmatites and related S-type peraluminous granites. A noted expert on lithium, he discovered the two largest lithium-rich rare-element deposits (Li-Ta-Rb-Cs) in Ontario: Separation Rapids Pegmatite of Avalon Advanced Materials Corp. and Pakeagama Lake Pegmatite of Frontier Lithium.
Ike Osmani, P.Geo.Advisor
Mr. Osmani is a professional geologist with an MSc degree in geology and geophysics from The University of Windsor and a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia. He has 35 years of experience in field-based mineral exploration as well as resource development and research encompassing geological mapping, geophysical data interpretation, diamond drill program supervision, core logging, field project planning and supervision, and preparation of NI 43-101 technical reports as a Qualified Person (“QP”). Mr. Osmani has experience with many mineral deposit types in the Precambrian Shield of Canada and internationally, including lode gold, magmatic copper-nickel-PGE, VMS, banded iron formation, manganese, rare-earth elements, and lithium-rich, rare element pegmatites. Mr. Osmani co-developed and published a shear-hosted gold model for far northwestern Ontario and is credited with developing a NI43-101-compliant gold resource of about a million ounces (Indicated and Inferred categories) in 2011 for the Foundation Resources’ Coldstream Project in Shebandowan Greenstone Belt (now owned by Goldshore Resources). He also discovered Titanium-Vanadium mineralization while exploring and developing a magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE deposit in 2001 on Aurora Platinum Corporation’s Lansdowne House property (now Platinex’s W2 property).
Blaine Webster, P.Geo.Advisor
Mr. Webster is a professional geophysicist with 50 years of industry experience. He worked for Inco Limited and Scintrex Ltd. before founding JVX Ltd, a geophysical contracting and consulting company that carried out more than 1500 surveys around the globe and developed advanced techniques in borehole IP surveys and spectral IP interpretation. Several of the gold targets that he identified in regional studies are now producing mines or discoveries. Mr. Webster also founded and was CEO and President of Goldeye Explorations Ltd. where he identified and staked several compelling gold projects and discovered the Big Dome deposit which is now held by Aris Gold as part of their 2.3 Moz Juby Project.
