Mr. Ryan is a highly accomplished prospector who was fundamental in the discovery of the Great Atlantic Salt Deposit in Eastern Canada
Vancouver, British Columbia — Vortex Energy Corp. (CSE: VRTX | OTC: VTECF | FRA: AA3) (“Vortex” or the “Company“)is pleased to announce the addition of Shawn Ryan as Technical Advisor to the Company. Mr. Ryan is a highly accomplished prospector who will guide Vortex Salt as the Company continues to develop its Salt assets in Atlantic Canada.
Paul Sparkes, CEO of Vortex commented, “Shawn is an incredibly accomplished prospector that brings a wide range of knowledge and expertise in the salt industry. I look forward to working together and advancing the Robinson River Salt Project, as we believe it has the potential of becoming a world class salt project.”
Shawn Ryan, president of RyanWood Exploration, is known worldwide within the mineral exploration industry for adapting technology to improve prospecting. Shawn grew up in Timmins Ontario and began his career in exploration in the early 80’s working with Kidd Creek Mine’s geophysics team and various other local contracting firms. Shawn moved to the Yukon in 1990 to collect wild mushroom and settle in Dawson City. In 1996 he decided to try his luck as a Prospector. He focused his prospecting in the Dawson District looking for the sources of all the alluvial gold. His research led to perfecting soil sampling techniques that led him to mapping out many new gold discoveries.
He has been honored with the Yukon Chamber of Mines Prospector of the Year in 1998 for the Horn, high grade gold skarn discovery in the Tombstone Mountains north of Dawson City, and with RyanWood Exploration in 2009 for initiating what is now called “The Yukon Second Gold Rush”. Shawn received the Spud Huestis Award for excellence in prospecting and mineral exploration from AME BC in 2010 for the White Gold Discovery (Kinross). In 2011 Shawn was also honored with the Bill Dennis, Prospector of the Year Award by the PDAC for prospecting success with a Canadian discovery on the White (Kinross) and Coffee (Goldcorp) Projects. During the last 10 years (2012 -2022) Shawn and the GroundTruth Exploration team have been working on developing new exploration techniques (Drones to Drills ™) that have dramatically dropped the exploration cost by roughly 70%, can be worked all year round and is extremely environmentally friendly.
