Dr. Alan Chamberlain, PhD.
President & Chief Geologist
Forty five years in mineral exploration and mine geology/development. Project development and supervision has involved grass roots exploration, regional reconnaissance, property evaluation, RC and core drilling, surface and underground mine development. The above projects have been for base, lithofile and precious metals accompanied by reports, presentations and in conjunction with various geophysical systems.
Exploration projects range from Proterozoic sediment hosted precious and copper/cobalt deposits, mesothermal gold/silver systems, porphyry gold, copper/molybdenite, molybdenite, tin, tungsten deposits to epithermal/ volcanic hosted precious metal deposits and placer gold. Mine work related to these mineral settings are: Gooseberry Mine – vein gold and silver; Round Mountain Gold – disseminated epithermal gold deposit.; Cove/McCoy Mine - porphyry and sediment hosted base metal and gold mine; Getchell Mine – sediment hosted gold; Bald Mountain Mine – porphyry gold. Porphyry gold/copper exploration and drilling in the Huancavelica Dept., Peru; porphyry copper exploration and drilling at Piedras Verdes, Sonora, Mexico, Coeur-Rochester Mine evaluating gold/silver satellite deposits. The latest project was consulting geologist for the Pershing Gold’s Relief Canyon Mine, Lovelock, Nevada.
Geotechnical work has been with Alyeska Pipeline in planning re-routes of the oil transmission line related to rock/soil instability. Monitor well drilling with Nye County, Nevada at the Yucca Mountain storage site was related to data collection for future planning.
