Warren Pratt

(BSc Geology, Hull, 1986; PhD Structural Geology, University of Wales, 1990) has a strong mapping background and a decade of British Geological Survey field experience and training. In the first half of the 1990’s he worked mainly on volcanic rocks in Wales, on engineering geology projects, and in the roofing slate industry. In 1994 he won the President’s Award of the Geological Society of London for detailed thematic mapping. Apart from the UK, he has extensive world-wide field experience in a great variety of geological terrains. Since 1995 he has worked extensively in Au, Ag and Cu exploration, including consulting on some World Class mineral deposits. These include Navidad (Argentina) and Ventana Gold (Colombia). Dr Pratt has a track record of generating Au/Cu targets in under-explored areas, for example, the CaƱicapa high sulfidation Au project, discovered during a World Bank program in Ecuador. He is also part of the team that recently discovered the Igor Au/Ag epithermal deposit (Sienna Gold Corp) in Peru. He is fluent in Spanish. Over the last few years, presentations have been made at metals- and petroleum-related international conferences in France, UK, Peru and Finland. Dr Pratt is a Competent Person as defined by Chapter 17 of the UKLA Sourcebook.

Don Allen

(MSc Geological Engineering and Economic Geology, University of British Colombia, 1966) has over 30 years of experience in Au/Cu exploration. He has experience in mapping sedimentary and igneous terrains in Canada, the United States, Ecuador and Bolivia. Apart from his mapping skills, Don specializes in the application of integrated geological, geochemical and geophysical information to evaluate mineral deposits, especially porphyry Cu (Mo, Au) and epithermal precious metal deposits. He has considerable experience in the design, implementation, and management of exploration programs. He is also skilled in several exploration computing programs (Oasis Montaj, Surpac) and is qualified to write technical reports for Canadian stock exchanges (PEng registered in British Columbia). He is fluent in Spanish and is based in Quito, Ecuador.

Tom Rowe

(BSc Geology, Hull; MSc Mining geology, Camborne School of Mines) is a junior exploration geologist with experience in North, Central and South America, as well as the United Kingdom. The majority of his work has focused on epithermal and orogenic gold, and gold-copper porphyry mineralization. This work has primarily focused on surface and underground mapping and logging to evaluate both brown- and greenfields projects. Previous work experience includes a mine geologist position within a sylvite-polyhalite mine; routinely logging core and face mapping.
