Meet The Team
Lawrence Roulston, CEO of Mountain Boy
I became intrigued with the GT in the 1980s when I spent part of a summer in a tent high on a mountain near the north end of the Triangle. I was overseeing an exploration program that was chasing down a gold showing. At that time, we knew little about the geology of the region and were learning on the fly. We went from concept through to drilling in that one season. The drilling hit [0.4 oz/ton over 8 feet]. At that time, it was considered a bust and we walked away. Years later, while I was writing the NL, I kept a close eye on the GT, which was advancing very quickly. When I got back to managing exploration four years ago, I made a conscious decision to focus on the GT: After seeing exploration and mining projects in every part of the world, I became convinced that there is nowhere in the world that is more prospective for big discoveries.
Lucia Theny, Vice President Exploration of Mountain Boy
I am a structural and economic geologist with experience in base and precious metal exploration. I hold a B.Sc. (Honours) in Earth and Environmental Sciences, specializing in geology from the University of British Columbia and a M.Sc. in Earth Sciences, focused on structural and economic geology from Simon Fraser University. Before joining Mountain Boy, I was a field geologist for several junior exploration companies conducting successful exploration programs on grassroots and brownfields projects. With worldwide experience, a majority of my career has been focused in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle beginning as a consultant to Great Bear when it was earning in on Mountain Boy’s BA project.
Heading the exploration program in the Golden Triangle for Mountain Boy is a dream job for a geologist. The geology is complex, presenting a fun challenge but it is worth it as the area is richly endowed.
Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, Director of Mountain Boy
I have worked in gold and copper exploration around the world. I was lucky enough to be in places that were the sites of exploration booms when there was confluence of improved access, rising metals prices, and/or new geologic understanding: Papua New Guinea in the early 1980s, Nevada in the mid to late 1980s, Latin America throughout the 1990s, and the former Soviet Union in recent years. I was thrilled to be invited to join the Mountain Boy Minerals team because I recognize the same confluence in the Golden Triangle leading to the potential for huge discoveries in this incredibly well-endowed and under-explored region.
Andrew Wilkins Project Geologist & QP
I have balanced work in two professions for over 30 years. During the winter months, I have worked as a ski guide in the helicopter skiing industry since 1986. This included being a business partner with Whistler Heli-Skiing from 1994 to 2006 before selling the company to Whistler/Blackcomb. For the remainder of the year, I have worked in the mining exploration industry as an exploration geologist since 1981. Over the years, I have specialized in working in rugged mountainous environments.
