John Buckle, P. Geoph., P. Geo.
–Mr. John Buckle, P.Geo., geophysical consultant to the company has been involved in the discovery of a variety of mineral deposits. Mr. Buckle’s insight and interpretation of airborne geophysical data pinpointed the kimberlites that led to the Ekati and Snap Lake diamond mines in Canada’s Northwest Territories. He identified the Eastern Deeps airborne anomaly of the giant Voisey’s Bay nickel mine. For Desert Sun in Brazil, his interpretation of ground IP geophysical data discovered new resources that led to the re-opening of the mined-out Jacobina gold deposit is now in production by Yamana. The discovery holes at the rich El Domo VHMS deposit were spotted by Mr. Buckle. He re-processed and interpreted 40-year-old data that resulted in the targeting of the Lisle zone copper-gold porphyry on DBV’s Hat project.
Thomas E. Lisle, P. Eng., Advisor
–Mr. Lisle was responsible for identifying the geologic potential of the Hat Property and the nearby properties of Firesteel Resources. He worked in the Sheslay area of northwestern British Columbia in the 1970s and discovered the Dick Creek copper property currently being explored by Firesteel and Prosper Gold. In 1993 he, with Erik Ostensoe, staked the Hat Property and in subsequent years completed various technical surveys that confirmed the presence of an important porphyry-type environment. He is a co-vendor of the Hat Property.
