Larry Reaugh, founder and director, and David Robinson, director, both passed in late 2022. They will be sorely missed not only for their expertise and contributions to Goldrea, but that they each possessed strong and endearing personalities.

Carl von Einsiedel

P.Geo, QP – Exploration Manager

Carl is a Vancouver based consulting geologist with decades of experience as a project generator and exploration contractor in BC and Mexico. “Goldrea purchased my Cannonball claims in July of 2016 and when Seabridge recognized the similarities between Quartz Rise and KSM a few weeks later I knew they had an amazing opportunity.  When Seabridge announced plans for 8,000 meters of drilling at Quartz Rise this spring and Enduro Metals raised another $11 million for the Newmont Lake Property to the north I knew it was time to give Goldrea an option on my Adrian claims and do everything I can to help them prove that this part of the Golden Triangle is just as well endowed as the rest of it”!
