He holds a B.ASc in Geological Engineering from the University of British Columbia, a M.Sc in Geological Engineering from Queens University, and has completed post-graduate studies at Stanford University.

Mr. Riedell is a geologist with over 35 years of exploration experience with an emphasis on porphyry copper-gold deposits. He has worked with Newmont, Exxon Minerals and BHP Billiton where he served as Chief Geologist. Since 2009 he has served as a consultant on advanced copper-gold-molybdenum exploration and development projects. He is a graduate of Williams College with a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Geology, and received a Master of Science degree in Geological Sciences from the University of Washington.

The Project

Porphyry copper-gold mineralization occurs on the Sheslay Property; defined by significant historical work completed by different operators from the 1970's to 2007. Five drill ready targets have been identified to date: (Star, North Star, East Star, Copper Creek and Pyrrhotite Creek). All 5 porphyry style targets are permitted for drilling. Four of the targets are clustered within the 12 square kilometre Star target area. There are multiple distinct porphyry style targets also occurring in the Pyrrhotite Creek area located 4 kilometers to the southwest.

"We are excited to have Ted and Brock on board; their expertise in the region and the deposit type will help focus and guide Prosper's work" said Peter Bernier, President and CEO, "The Multi-Year Area Based permit will allow the Company to thoroughly drill test the 5 known porphyry copper gold targets while conducting further exploration of the property."
