To assure a successful outcome of its exploration programs on the eastern part of the Opinaca metasedimentary basin, Stelmine has appointed two geologists, each with distinct areas of expertise to its Exploration Committee. They are Normand Goulet (Structure) and Michel Boily (Geochemistry and Metallogeny). The latter will be Chairman of the Exploration Committee.
The mandate of the Committee is to provide scientific support to Stelmine exploration teams through goal setting, exploration targets, development of exploration programs, project supervision, , and and selection of exploration tools.
Dr. Normand Goulet (Bsc, Université de Montréal; DEA and Doctorate, Université de Grenoble, France and PhD, Queen’s University, Kingston) is a full tenured professor in geologya t the Université du Québec, Montréal. Dr. Goulet brings a vast expertise in the domain of structural geology, tectonics, deformation of metalliferrous deposits and petrology. He has over forty years of experience managing teams of geologists working for government or private agencies in Canada or abroad. In particular, Dr. Goulet carried out geological studies on themetasedimenary Opinaca basin and participated to the initial exploration work on the Courcy property. Professor Goulet directed several research projects on gold (Abitibi, Dominican Republic, Maroc, Mali), nickel (New Caledonia, Ivory Coast, Albania, James Bay), uranium (Otish and Torngat Mtns.), and on polymetallic mineralization (Nunavut). He further participated in mapping and the completion of a new geological and metallogenic map of Mali.
Dr. Boily is an expert geochemist and metallogenist specializing in the interpretation of precious and rare metal deposits in Precambrian volcano-plutonic terranes for the last 25 years. Prior to consulting for the mining industry and government agencies, Dr. Boily was involved as a research associate at MERI/McGill in the study of several rare metals deposits located in the Quebec province; notably the Strange-Lake deposit in Labrador (Zr, Y, REE), the St-Honoré mine in the Saguenay area (Nb, REE) and the Québec Lithium Mine in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt (Li). Since 1992, Dr. Boily has conducted exploration and technical evaluation of gold, base metals and rare metal properties located in Archean greenstone belts and the Grenville Province of Quebec, in the Anti-Atlas Proterozoic windows of Morocco, Northern Mexico, Argentina and Nicaragua. Dr. Boily graduated from the Université de Montréal in 1988 with a PhD in geochemistry and carried out post-doctoral studies at the University of Chicago. Since 1984, Dr. Boily has been the author of various publications in international scientific journals and has written numerous technical reports. Dr. Boily is currently a registered Professional Geologist in good standing with l’Ordre des Géologues du Québec.
