Dr. Allen Alper Interviews Matt Gill, MD and CEO, White Rock Minerals Ltd. (ASX: WRM), Exploring for Globally Significant High-Grade VMS (Zinc, Silver, Gold) and IRGS Gold Deposits in Alaska.
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Matt Gill, Managing Director and CEO of White Rock Minerals Ltd. (ASX: WRM), updated us on White Rock. White Rock has undergone a 3 to 4-times re-rating since Metals News started covering them, and Matt sees the potential for a much greater upside. They have an advanced JORC compliant gold and silver project in northern New South Wales, Australia, and an exciting new large gold anomaly discovery, called Last Chance, situated in the high-prospective Tintina gold belt, in central Alaska. This gold target sits within the Company’s district-scale Red Mountain project, where there already exists a maiden-JORC compliant, high-grade zinc and precious metals resource. White Rock will be drilling new targets at Red Mountain until September this year and continuing in 2021. With a fully funded exploration program for 2020 and 2021 in Alaska, promising projects in great mining jurisdictions, an excellent team, and a planned revised share structure, White Rock ticks off all the boxes, and shows promise to continue its current successful gains.
