Greg Hall was the discovery Geologist at Granny Hall.
Dr. Nick Carter, P.Eng, is an economic geologist who has specialized in mineral deposit studies. Dr. Carter has been involved in the mineral industry for more than 50 years and holds degrees in geology from the University of New Brunswick (B.Sc.), Michigan Tech (M.S.) and the University of British Columbia (Ph.D.). The early part of his career included 16 years with the Geological Branch of the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines during which time he was involved in the examination of, and reporting on mineral deposits and districts throughout British Columbia including molybdenum and silver deposits in the Alice Arm area. For the past 35 years he has provided consulting services to major and junior companies in all parts of Canada, the western U.S., Mexico, and parts of Latin America and Asia.
Dr. Carter first visited the Dolly Varden property in 1964, and has spent considerable time in the Alice Arm area throughout his career, having examined more than 100 of the documented mineral deposits and occurrences in the area. The Dolly Varden property lies 26km by resource road from the village of Alice Arm, which lies at tidewater in Observatory Inlet on the North Coast of British Columbia.
George Heard, President and CEO, commented: “Dr. Carter rounds out the depth of expertise on our highly accomplished technical committee. His focus on economic geology and mineral deposit studies along with his unparalleled knowledge of the region is very helpful to achieve our goals of expanding the extent of known deposits and finding major new discoveries.”
