Dr. Sillitoe is an internationally recognized independent geologic consultant.

The new August 2009 paper puts the Sleeper Gold Project into perspective relative to current conditions. The paper contains recommendation for ongoing work and comments on the importance of bulk tonnage potential at Sleeper as well as the high grade targets (to view "August 2009 Exploration Potential of the Sleeper Gold Property", by Dr. Richard H.
