VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 24, 2020 /CNW/ - FireFox Gold Corp. ("FireFox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that renowned exploration geologist Dr. Quinton Hennigh has joined its Technical Advisory Board.
Dr. Hennigh joins a team of senior explorers from Finland and North America. The Technical Advisory Board also includes Dr. Rich Goldfarb, a founding FireFox team member, and one of the most published researchers in the world on orogenic gold deposits. The technical team from GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) ("GoldSpot") has also been in the field with FireFox geologists during the summer. These external experts will continue to work closely with Dr. Petri Peltonen, FireFox's exploration manager, and technical directors, Timo Maki and Patrick Highsmith.
Dr. Hennigh began his distinguished career in gold exploration after obtaining his PhD in Geology/Geochemistry from the Colorado School of Mines. After working with major gold companies such as Newcrest Mining and Newmont Mining, Dr. Hennigh founded Novo Resources Corp (TSXV: NVO), acting as its CEO and currently serving as Chairman. Among his notable project involvements are First Mining Gold's Springpole gold deposit in Ontario, Kirkland Lake Gold's acquisition of the Fosterville gold mine in Australia, the Rattlesnake Hills gold deposit in Wyoming, and Lion One's Tuvatu gold project on Fiji, among many others.
"We are excited to welcome Quinton to the FireFox team. He is among the most focused and creative explorers in our business," commented Patrick Highsmith, Chairman of FireFox. "The Central Lapland Greenstone Belt is an emerging gold terrane with analogies to other important orogenic gold belts, but only now are we seeing sufficient geophysics, geochemistry, structural geology, and drilling to unlock the next wave of discoveries. It is perfect timing to integrate the ideas from Goldspot and our Technical Advisory Board ahead of our planned winter drill program."
