VANCOUVER — It’s been more than two decades since veteran geologist Ron Netolitzky won the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada’s Bill Dennis Prospector of the Year award for his role in exploring and financing the Eskay Creek and Snip discoveries in northwestern BC. But Netolitzky-led Skeena Resources (TSXV: SKE; US-OTC: SKREF) is hoping that this scene of past success will reveal more discoveries.
Netolitzky serves as the company’s chairman and was instrumental in picking up the dormant, 36 km2 Spectrum gold project in BC’s Golden Triangle along the Stikine Arch, which sits 37 km west of Imperial Metals’ (TSX: III) Red Chris copper-gold mine.
“I find if you can’t follow the Tecks and Norandas of the world, sometimes you have to look for the individuals that have been successful in the business,” Netolitzky comments during an interview.
“And one such geologist is John Brock, who was really involved in a lot of ways with the discovery of Red Chris. Spectrum was another property he was exploring in the area around the same time, and I had happened to be working on a project next door,” he continues.
