LEOCOR Gold Inc is a rapidly growing resource exploration & development company principally focused on strategic growth leveraging overlooked, undervalued or unexplored project potential in the province of Newfoundland, Canada. The province has become a hotspot for mineral exploration companies and investors looking for precious metals’ exposure.

Newfoundland offers one of the most extensive mining histories in Canada, with small-scale mining dating back to the 1770s, which expanded into a major industry by the 1860s. The province offers world-class geology, significant infrastructure and exceptional access to a skilled workforce.

Our district scale, Atlantic Gold Portfolio encompasses 145,975 hectares of prospective gold claims in two separate mining districts: The Western Exploit District, and the Baie Verte District across north-central Newfoundland’s Dunnage Zone.

Previous exploration has confirmed the presence of multiple zones of high-grade gold mineralization. In our most recent acquisition (Western Exploit District), prolific prospector and company advisor Shawn Ryan’s data suggests new discovery potential at scale, across previously unexplored lands.

Shawn Ryan

Technical Advisor

Shawn Ryan began his career in exploration in the early 80’s working with the Kidd Creek Exploration geophysics team and various other local contracting firms.  In 1996, while living in Dawson City, Yukon, he decided to try his luck as a prospector.  He focused his prospecting in the Dawson District looking for the sources of alluvial gold.  His research led to perfecting a deeper soil sampling technique that became a Yukon industry standard.  

2010 Award Winner, Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia (AME BC)
2011 Prospector of the Year Award, PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Assn of Canada) For his discovery of the White Gold deposit, Yukon

Shawn received the Spud Huestis Award for excellence in prospecting and mineral exploration from AME BC in 2010 for the White Gold Discovery.  In 2011, a New York Times profile went so far as to christen Ryan ‘the king of a new Yukon Gold rush’, he was also honored that year with the Bill Dennis, Prospector of the Year Award by the PDAC for his prospecting success that led to the discovery on the White Gold Property and the Coffee Projects, now owned by Newmont.

"If I was 25 years younger and I found Newfoundland first instead of the Yukon, I’d be in Newfoundland.”

Shawn Ryan is a prospector with a reputation for turning fieldwork and data analysis into tangible gold finds. Ryan has optioned ground in the Yukon with gold estimates running into the billions of dollars. Just one existing prospect alone, White Gold in the Yukon, has a potential yield of over two million ounces, according to Ryan.

In December of 2016 Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. bought 19.3 per cent of the shares in a company Ryan had formed that had 12,300 claims in the White Gold district south of Dawson City. Before that, Ryan had already made $3.5 million when an associate formed a Vancouver-based company that bought all those claims.

Today, he and his prospecting company Ground Truth Exploration Inc., hope to duplicate their Yukon success in central Newfoundland. In the process he has set off a staking rush in the province that is revitalizing its mining sector.
