Falcon Gold Corp (TSX-V:FG, OTC:FGLDF) has announced the appointment of Glayton Dias as exploration manager for its British Columbia (BC) and South America portfolio.
The Vancouver, BC-based company noted that Dias is a geologist with 12 years of experience both domestically and internationally, developing managing and exploring mineral deposits from early-stage to mine development and 3D ore estimation.
Most recently, it said his work has been focused on the Spences Bridge Gold Belt, having been posted as a project manager for the Shovelnose Deposit currently developed by Westhaven Resources with a resource of 791,000 ounces of gold and 3,894,000 ounces of silver Indicated.
Before Westhaven, Falcon Gold said Dias worked as a consulting geologist for Ximen Resoures on its multi-metallic Treasure Mountain deposit, exploration manager for Avant and Gdgeo, leading projects in world-class deposits such as ArcelorMittal’s Andrade mine, Samarco’s Germano mine, and Magnesita SA’s Serra das Eguas project, all located in Brazil.
Falcon said Dias’s knowledge and experience in precious and base metal projects on high-grade epithermal low sulfidation including porphyry copper-gold geology will add value as it restarts operations at both the Spitfire-Sunny Boy and Gaspard projects in BC, as well as at its South America projects.
