Alamaden owns 100% of this project, which covers the Ixtaca Gold-Silver Deposit, one of Mexico’s premier precious metals deposits, discovered by Almaden in 2010.
Morgan graduated from the UBC Geological Engineering program in 1994. He earned his Masters of Science in Geology at the University of Auckland, studying geothermal systems and epithermal gold deposits and his Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Exeter (Camborne School of Mines) studying the geology and mineral deposits of eastern Mexico. His Ph.D. research was combined with the prospecting program he led in Eastern Mexico for the Company. This exploration directly led to the Company’s involvement in the Caballo Blanco and Ixtaca projects and the subsequent discoveries made on these projects.
