Rory’s primary language is English with a working knowledge of French.

Monica McCullough (H.B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc.): Geologist
[precious metals, magmatic sulphides]

Monica McCullough, originally from Thunder Bay, studied at Lakehead University where she underwent the Honours Bachelor of Arts program majoring in Geography while concurrently studying in the Bachelor of Education program. Monica graduated in 2012 from the H.B.A. and B.Ed. programs, and enrolled in the Master of Science program in Geology in the fall of the same year. Monica focused on Sedimentology with her Master’s thesis entitled “Sedimentology and Paleogeographic Reconstruction of the Strata in and Adjacent to the Sudbury Impact Layer in the Northern Paleoproterzoic Animikie Basin”. She graduated in 2017. Monica worked for Bjorkman Prospecting and GOOD Mining as a Prospector Assistant, collecting historical samples. She also worked with Rio Tinto Canada as a Geotechnician for their Ni-Cu-PGE projects near Thunder Bay. Monica is a member of the Northwestern Ontario Prospector Association (NWOPA).

Gary McLearn (B.Sc., P.Geo.): Senior Project Geologist
[precious metals, base metals, magmatic sulphides, coal, ruby, oil sands, iron, hematite, diamonds, awaruite]

Gary McLearn, born, raised and currently residing in Nova Scotia, is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA).  He is a graduate of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Bachelor of Science with Major Geology Degree (2003). Mr. McLearn has over 13 years experience in mineral exploration in Canada and internationally.   His primary role is that of a project or senior geologist, supervising drilling programs, logging core, and writing technical reports. Some of the various deposit types Gary has experience with include copper (chalcopyrite, chalcocite, malachite), zinc, gold, coal, ruby, oil sands, iron formation, kimberlite, awaruite (Ni-Fe alloy), magmatic sulphides (nickel-copper-PGEs) and more recently, high-grade hematite in Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. Gary is fluent in English with a working knowledge of Spanish and basic French.
