Prospector takes another shot
from The Vancouver Sun
It is late on a cloudy afternoon and prospector Ron Netolitzky is hunched over a fragment of drill core, 100 kilometres south of Dease Lake in remote northwestern B.C. Netolitzky, magnifying glass to one eye, is looking for gold, or minerals that suggest the yellow metal is present. He's in familiar territory. In the late 1980s, the geologist helped discover the high-grade Snip and Eskay Creek gold mines to the south. The finds sparked trading frenzies on the old Vancouver Stock Exchange as mining companies battled each other for a piece of the action.
