Peter Born  Ph.D., Senior Exploration Consultant, prospector and Director

Peter Born is an exploration consultant with more than 35 years experience exploring and evaluating mining properties for senior and junior Canadian resource companies. He also spent a ten year period of research in basin exploration at university and government. In addition Dr. Born did exploration and research for sedimentary ore deposits (zinc, copper, uranium and gold deposits).

Peter has past experience doing mineralization modeling, and exploration for Western Mining (WMC International Ltd) as well as modeling mineralization at the Aquarius mine (Timmins, Abitibi greenstone belt) for Echo Bay Mines.  He worked extensively in Archean greenstone terrains throughout Canada and modeled/explored gold systems/alteration halos in both iron formation gold deposits as well as vein type deposits.  Dr. Born dealt extensively with QA/QC issues with respect to data handling, assessment and uncertainty in generating ore reserves, mineralization and other vector models. His Ph.D. work includes an extensive study of the mineralization environment for the Timmins gold camp (>80 million oz. of gold). During his PhD studies he was a three time recipient of Canada’s prestigious National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Post-Graduate Scholarship (1991-1993). He was one of the authors/leaders for the 1999 GAC Field Guide 3B: Controls for Gold Mineralization in the Southern Abitibi Greenstone belt.
Since 2000 he has been working from his Ottawa-based consulting firm for select Canadian resource companies, including VP Exploration for several junior mining companies (2007 to present), directed exploration for gold, lithium, base metals & uranium. Mr. Born is currently involved with 9 junior mining companies (none in Alberta) either as CEO, VP Exploration or director.
