Tony Barresi, Ph.D., P.Geo
Dr. Barresi is an economic geologist with greater than fifteen years of base and precious metal exploration experience. He has conducted successful exploration programs on grassroots and brownfields projects, and specializes in volcanogenic massive sulfide, porphyry and epithermal deposit exploration. He also has experience conducting exploration for rare-earth-element, Mississippi-valley type, iron-oxide-copper-gold, skarn, orogenic gold, and diamond deposits. Tony obtained his B.Sc. (honours) from Saint Mary’s University in 2004 and Ph.D. from Dalhousie University in 2015. His Ph.D. thesis focused on the interplay between island-arc evolution and metallogenesis as recorded by the Hazelton Group in northwestern British Columbia, within one of Canada’s premiere metal districts. Tony was awarded the prestigious Mary-Claire Ward Geoscience Award for his thesis by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) and the Geological Association of Canada (GAC).
