Vice-President Exploration, Noront Resources
Ryan Weston, Noront Resources’ Vice-President Exploration, is a Professional Geologist with over 15 years exploration experience nationally and abroad. He has explored for VMS deposits in the Mexican Cretaceous belt, komatiite-hosted Ni-sulfides in Australia’s outback and porphyry and epithermal mineralization in the Peruvian Andes.
Since 2012 Ryan has been focussed on exploration and development within Ontario’s highly prospective Ring of Fire district which hosts world class chromite resources, a significant magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE deposit (Eagle’s Nest) and numerous VMS occurrences, all discovered within a span of less than 10 years. Ryan is an ardent believer in the continued prospectivity of the belt and believes there are more high-quality deposits yet to be found. Ryan received his MSc in geology from Laurentian University in 2002 and is a recent MBA graduate from the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University.
