Roger Moss, Ph.D., P.Geo

President and CEO, Labrador Gold Corp.

Talk Abstract:

In January of 2020, a little-known, private exploration company called New Found Gold announced spectacular assay results (92.86 g/t Au over 19 m) from a drill hole on their Queensway gold project near Gander, Newfoundland. As news of the discovery spread companies started to take a serious look at Newfoundland. With New Found Gold continuing to produce stellar assay results, and perhaps spurred on by a GSC publication comparing central Newfoundland to the well-endowed Abitibi greenstone belt, a staking rush was well under way by the end of the year. By mid 2021 companies with ground in the Central Newfoundland gold belt saw their share prices rise to lofty levels.

This talk will look at Labrador Gold’s exploration in Newfoundland and Labrador with its initial work in Labrador, the acquisition of Kingsway, and the exploration carried out there. The focus will be on the methods used to define the drill targets that resulted in the discovery of seven gold occurrences at Kingsway.

Speaker Bio:

Roger Moss is a professional geologist with twenty-five years international experience in the mining industry, including sixteen years in senior management positions. After graduating with a B.Sc. in geology from the University of the Witwatersrand, he spent several years working on exploration projects in Southern Africa, including Namibia, where he was instrumental in the discovery of the multi-million ounce Navachab gold deposit.

Dr. Moss has also worked on advanced stage copper-gold deposits in Chile, Bulgaria and Columbia and on early exploration stage projects in Mexico and Canada. Each year he teaches a field mapping course to students in the Lassonde Mineral Engineering program at University of Toronto where he passes on his passion for geology and mineral exploration.
