Richard Osmond, P.Geo
Richard has over 25 years of experience in the mining sector including experience with INCO (VBNC), Falconbridge and Anglo American. He was involved in exploration discoveries at Vale’s Voisey’s Bay deposit (with Archean Resources and VBNC) and Glencore’s Raglan mine (with Falconbridge). Richard was later hired as a senior technical leader with Anglo American responsible for North America and Europe focused on Ni exploration in northern Canada, Alaska and Scandinavia as well as IOCG and porphyry Cu-Mo exploration in Mexico and Alaska. While working at Falconbridge and Anglo American, Richard was instrumental in the development and advancement of the SQUID technologies for Ni exploration, which led to several new discoveries including the Raglan 7 and 8 deposits and the discovery of Anglo’s new Sakatti Ni-Cu-PGE deposit in Northern Finland. In 2007, Richard resigned from Anglo American to work in the junior mining sector and founded GlobeTrotters Resource Group in 2009. GlobeTrotters is a private prospect generator focused on base and precious metal exploration in South America. GlobeTrotters’ use of proprietary in-house remote sensing data as well as their risk management approach to exploration has already lead to the grass roots discovery of the new Elida porphyry Cu-Mo-Ag deposit in central Peru.
