Brian Alers is an independent professional consulting geologist and qualified person for NI-43-101 technical reports who specializes in cost-effective mine evaluations, environmentally sensitive permitting and management of a wide variety of gold, silver, copper, zinc, uranium and rare earth element bearing exploration projects throughout the western United States.

Brian K. Alers has over 30 years of mining industry experience as a geologist, exploration manager, and mine geologist.  He cut his geologic teeth in the Carlin Trend of Northern Nevada and at the calderas of the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado with Homestake Mining Co., and Anaconda Minerals Inc. After managing exploration programs for alkaline Au porphyry and volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits in Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona and New Mexico for close to 10 years with American Copper and Nickel Co. (INCO). He formed a small consulting firm in 1993 focused on the structural controls of ore deposits and the interpretation of complex vein relationships in 3-dimensions.

This extensive background in gold exploration makes Alers and Associates Ltd. the best choice for NI43-101 Technical Report preparation because instead of simply providing an engineering report, Alers and Associates Ltd. is qualified to recognize the real-life exploration potential of any mineral deposit and properly expand the mineral reserve or resource estimate. Countless years of boot-on-the–ground experience has provided the advanced field skills and understanding of ore systems needed to determine the appropriate exploration approach to define a proven and probable mineral reserve or resource.

Brian Alers has the experience necessary to wade through mountains of historic paperwork and quickly determine the status, validity, and potential of any type of mining property. Computer models are only as good as the geologic data that goes into them, and the successful integration of sound geologic observations into the digital database is critical in the generation of mineral deposit models and valid mineral resource/reserve estimates.

Brian Alers is a Qualified Person as defined by Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 43-101 (NI-43-101) standards to prepare detailed NI 43-101 technical reports. He also offers a less expensive Project Evaluation Report that is designed to organize all the previous work into one coherent report and provide a meaningful cost estimate for a full blown NI 43-101 compliant report.

Brian Alers received his Bachelor’s degree from University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado in 1982 and attended Graduate School at the Colorado School of Mines, Golden Colorado from 1999-2002. He has been a Registered Professional Geologist in good standing for American Institute of Professional Geologists since 2010 (CPG-11488), a Registered Professional Geologist in good standing for the State of Wyoming since 1991 (WYPG-2951), a member of the Society of Economic Geologists since 1989, a member of the Denver Region Exploration Geologists Society since 1981, a member of the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists since 2007 and is a Colorado Class A industrial Wastewater Treatment Operator.

Over the years, Brian Alers has developed the unique observational skills, abstract thinking, and independent judgment needed to see what everybody has seen, but think what nobody else has thought. He is fully aware that the art of discovery is elusive by nature and often rooted in happenstance. The secrets of the earth will not reveal themselves to the casual observer, they are only revealed through many years of experience on the outcrop.
