Mr. Kyba’s experience spans grassroots exploration to deposit delineation for precious and base metals as well as five years of regional oversight of all exploration and mining projects in northwestern B.C. for the provincial government. During his 5+ year tenure as Regional Geologist, he completed extensive site visits and field work investigating the variety of mineral deposits throughout the region. This work resulted in several government publications and a map identifying favorable areas to explore for minerals, commonly known as the ‘Kyba Red Line’; a stratigraphic unconformity located within 2 km of nearly all major deposits in the Stikine Terrane. His map remains in use today.
