Mr. Ryan is also a founder and operator of GroundTruth Exploration, a company with a great depth of experience in Yukon exploration and developer of new exploration techniques including Drones to Drills™. GroundTruth's technological advances have revolutionized the exploration of gold reserves in northern climates, significantly cutting exploration costs, allowing crews to work year-round and minimizing environmental impact.
Rob Carpenter, a director of the Company, states: "With the addition of Shawn, we have now assembled a team which has been directly involved with every major gold discovery in the White Gold District during this era. Shawn has an outstanding track record of identifying high-quality early stage projects and his dedication and passion for exploration has led to major new gold discoveries. I am looking forward working with him and GroundTruth this season."
