            I have over 30 years of experience throughout the United States, Latin America and in Africa, Arabia and China exploring for a variety of commodities in different deposit types - particularly gold, copper, silver-zinc-lead and industrial minerals. I have worked every step of the discovery process from research and initial exploration to feasibility studies involving multi-drill programs. I know what several mines looked like as raw prospects and the stages from exploration to production. My work experience shows I am very comfortable learning new technologies and working in other cultures. We speak Spanish in our home (my wife is Peruvian and trained in public and community relations). I have put my experience to use advising companies on property investment, answering investor questions, writing technical reports for properties and providing teachable moments for project geologists in different cultures.



Consulting Geologist.  Clients include Lian Hua Mining Corp.,

Oremex Resources,Gold Port, GeoXplor, Geovic, Endeavour Silver,

Allied Nevada Gold, and Ventura. August, 2007 to present.

The work Included:

  • Investment recommendations
  • Geologic and resource modeling
  • 43-101 reporting
  • Surveying competitor activity
  • Organizing a multi-drill campaign with QAQC procedures
  • Field mapping and sampling with property recommendation
  • Staff training in foreign settings.


Paguanta Resources, Chile (Mineral Securities, LTD.) Jefe de Proyecto

2006 to 2007

I met the goal of identifying drill targets on 39 sq. km. of the Altiplano within six months. I accomplished that by carrying out technical functions, developing practices, policies and a budget pertinent to the area while monitoring costs and assigning tasks to and mentoring younger employees. I continued technical functions and provided geological input while working with outside consultants following the discovery of significant mineralization. I supervised the integrating of geological mapping and geochemical and geophysical surveys with RC and core drilling to generate a published resource. March, 2006 to August, 2007

Self Employed.                                                                                               1998-2006

Business owner.  Arizona satellite TV dealership purchased when metal prices plummeted in the late 1990s. I was one of the few survivors of a rapidly changing marketplace. The business is now closed due to an unfortunate choice of partners while I was overseas. This taught me some good basic lessons about people and business.


Consulting Geologist                                                                                   1997-1998

Andean Silver, San Cristobal property, Bolivia

Logging drill core and chips to developing a geologic model of a silver-lead-zinc deposit in the Altoplano.

Self-employed.                                                                                                1992-1994

I used the Gold Fields corporate downsizing as an opportunity to try small business. I took my interest in geology and history and used it to develop interpretive cassette tapes for travelers on Interstate 40 and some side trips. It would be an interesting hobby but not a business.

I spent a small amount of time in Nova Scotia for Mississippi Valley-type zinc exploration.
