Rob Shives, P. Geo
Rob Shives is a geologist/geophysicist, with over 28 years post-graduate (Carleton, 1979) experience in private exploration and public sectors, in a variety of gold (vein, porphyry and epithermal) and uranium environments, with emphasis on application of gamma-ray spectrometric techniques to bedrock and surficial mapping and practical exploration for a wide variety of commodities.
As Head, Radiation Geophysics Section, Mineral Resources Division, Geological Survey (1998 to April 2007), Rob managed Section activities including the National Gamma-Ray Spectrometry Program (NATGAM), to ensure ongoing collection of high quality, public domain airborne and ground gamma ray spectrometric data over Canada's landmass. This work included airborne and ground survey design, contract preparation/supervision, data interpretation and field spectrometric studies in and outside Canada to further develop case histories in established and new geological settings. Rob has presented successfulapplications as formal published papers, short courses, talks and posters, worldwide. He has been very actively promoting practical application of airborne gamma ray/mag surveys in BC for over 15 years and has just left GSC to start a new consulting firm GamX Inc., to provide clients with interpretation/application of gamma spectrometric and magnetic surveys, training, workshops, and field follow-up supervision.
Rob worked closely with GWR's field geological team to design the 2005 airborne gamma ray/mag survey of GWR's Lac la Hache Property and to compile and interpret results in the context of a potentially large porphyry Cu-Au system, similar to many of the known deposits throughout BC's prolific Quesnel Trough. Recognition of this potential has supported a new exploration approach and the early results to date are encouraging.
Gary L. Roste, P. Geo
Gary L. Roste is a graduate geologist from the University of British Columbia. Mr. Roste graduated in 1986 and has been employed entirely in the mining industry since that time. He is currently employed by Imperial Metals Corporation at the Mount Polley Mine since August of 2003. Gary was a member of the exploration team that developed the Mount Polley Northeast zone. Previously, Gary spent several years in Argentina as project geologist for Golden Peaks Resources Ltd.
