Alfonso Rodriguez MSc, P.Geo.
Alfonso has over 15 years of experience as a geoscientist working in the mineral exploration and mining industry. He is a Professional Geoscientist (P. Geo) registered with Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (EGBC) since 2015. He graduated as a Geologist from the Santander Industry University in 2005 and received his MSc from the University of British Columbia in 2014, where he worked on the hydrothermal evolution of Andean epithermal and porphyry precious metal deposits.
He was a member of the Ventana Gold Corp. geology team, which successfully defined a world class gold deposit in the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia before being taken over by AUX in 2011 (currently MINESA S.A.). More recently, Alfonso was part of the GT Gold Corp. team contributing to the Tatogga project, located in BC’s Golden Triangle, until its acquisition by Newmont Corp. in 2021. Alfonso’s experience ranges from grassroots to advance stage exploration projects as well as developing underground and open pit mining projects in several jurisdictions. Alfonso re-joined APEX in 2021 as a Senior Project Geologist and is involved in field work, project planning and management, data analysis, training, and technical reporting.
