Newfoundland Gold is an alliance of companies focused on the advancement of mineral exploration and mining projects in Canada’s Newfoundland. Collectively these industry leaders are committed to bringing awareness to an exciting and supportive jurisdiction while generating shareholder value through responsible and innovative exploration and development.
We’ve assembled an experienced leadership and advisory team with decades of success in exploration and discovery including renowned prospector, Shawn Ryan.
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.
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.
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.
