Vancouver, BC – Crystal Lake Mining Corporation (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the company, through Emerald Lake Development Corp. (the Geological contractor), has retained the geological services of a new technical team. Lightfoot Geoscience Inc. is owned and operated by Dr. Peter C. Lightfoot, PhD, P. Geo., and will provide expertise on Ni-Cu-Co sulfide ore deposits and technical advice on the exploration program. Dr. Lightfoot will focus his efforts on the Emerald Lake Project in the Fort Frances area of Northwestern Ontario.
Dr. Lightfoot was Chief Geologist with Vale Base Metals responsible for technical aspects of the exploration programs at Sudbury, Thompson, and Voisey’s Bay and tracking the developments in understanding of the geology and global supply of metals from nickel sulfide and laterite deposits. Peter received his B.A. from Oxford University in 1980, his M.Sc. degree from the University of Toronto in 1982, and his Ph.D. from the Open University in 1985. Following post-doctoral studies at the University of Toronto, he joined the Ontario Geological Survey in 1987, and worked extensively on Sudbury and undertook a joint program of research on the Noril’sk Deposits in Russia. In 1996, Peter joined Inco as Senior Geologist and worked on Inco’s Voisey’s Bay Project and international project generation. With Vale’s acquisition of Inco in 2006, he worked with a team of technical experts responsible for international project support and generation. In 2010, Peter returned to work on Canadian ore deposits by providing technical support to exploration within Vale’s operations in Sudbury, Thompson, and Voisey’s Bay. Peter is the Hutchinson Visiting Industry Professor at the University of Western Ontario and Associate Editor of Elsevier’s Ore Geology Reviews. For 25 years, Peter has been based in Sudbury, and through his linkages to industry, government and academia has been positioned to develop and assemble the ideas presented in his recent book on the Sudbury ore deposits and impact melts.
In addition Crystal Lake Mining Corp., through Emerald Lake Development Corp., has also retained Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience, a consulting firm providing geological and geophysical services. The principal geologist, Elisabeth Ronacher, PhD, P. Geo., has worked on the Porgera gold deposit, Papua New Guinea, and on the giant Hugo Dummett Cu-Au porphyry deposits at Oyu Tolgoi, Mongolia, among others. During the last ten years, Elisabeth has been involved in exploration for a variety of commodities (including Au, Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, PGE) and ore deposit types (including orogenic, orthomagmatic, VMS, Sedex) worldwide. She received a PhD from the University of Alberta and was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Colorado School of Mines.
