Craig Richardson BSc, P.Geo.
Craig received his BSc in Geology from the University of Calgary in 2011. He completed his undergraduate thesis on the greenschist/amphibolite rocks around the 777 VMS deposit Flin Flon, Manitoba. He has been a registered member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) since 2011 and a Professional Geoscientist (P.Geo.) since 2021.
Craig has worked on numerous projects in Canada including VMS, Au-Ag epithermal systems, porphyry, sedimentary hosted uranium, carbonatite REE, and orogenic gold deposits. He spent 8 years in Cambodia exploring for epithermal and porphyry deposits and discovered the Halo porphyry system. This discovery led to a geophysics and drilling program funded by JOGMEC (Japanese Oil, Gas, and Metals National Corporation).
Craig joined APEX in March 2020 and has supervised several field-based mapping, logging, and drilling programs in BC and Nunavut, and written portions of numerous NI 43-101 reports. Craig has over 10 years of Canadian and international mineral exploration experience including prospecting, sampling, mapping, trenching, drilling, geophysics, and GIS on grassroots exploration to evaluation stage projects.
