Liberty Gold Corp. (LGD:TSX; LGDTF:OTCQB) announced in a news release that its vice president of exploration and geoscience, Dr. Moira Smith, received the Association for Mineral Exploration 2019 Colin Spence Award for her "essential contribution" in discovering and delineating the Long Canyon gold deposit in Nevada when she was with Fronteer Gold.
The Colin Spence Award is given to those who significantly participated in enhancing the mineral resources in Canada or other countries by applying prospecting techniques or other geoscience technology.
"We are thrilled to see Dr. Moira Smith receive this exciting award. Very few teams make a mineral discovery that becomes an operating mine especially one as high grade as Long Canyon," Dr. Mark O'Dea, chairman of Liberty Gold and former CEO of Fronteer Gold, said in the release.
"Moira, as the technical leader of Fronteer Gold's Long Canyon team, countered conventional thinking to advance a project long ignored because the location and geology were considered wrong," O'Dea added. "Focused on geological first principles, Moira created a new geological model for this part of eastern Nevada that guided the full discovery and delineation of the multi-million ounce, high-grade, Carlin-style Long Canyon, gold deposit, which recently completed its third year of commercial production by Newmont."[NLINSERT]
