Bill has over 50 years of management and executive experience in all facets of mine design, construction, and operations.

Inventus has engaged Snowden Optiro, a global consulting firm that has unique experience with paleoplacer gold systems, to conduct a geostatistical study of the recent drilling and bulk sampling data from Pardo. The most recent surface bulk sampling results (see press release dated September 27, 2022) returned a gold grade of 3.4 g/t Au for the 4,979 tonnes processed, which compared favorably to the predicted grade and tonnage of 3.3 g/t and 5,526 tonnes, respectively. The aim of the Snowden study is to optimize our upcoming resource drill program, providing adequate data to support a maiden mineral resource estimate. Once the study is complete the resource drill program can be properly planned with an anticipated start date early in the second half of 2023.
