It would be remiss to not acknowledge and honour in these pages the legacy of one of Canada’s ‘mining mavericks’, Patrick’s father. John Patrick Sheridan Senior began his career as a prospector in Northern Ontario and Quebec in the 1950s. Over the subsequent 40 years, he developed many copper, nickel and gold properties in Canada and abroad from Guyana to Spain. Mr. Sheridan was highly regarded for his role in developing the Lac des Iles Mine in the 1980s, a source of palladium, platinum, and other metals.
Later in life, Mr. Sheridan became a mentor to innumerable prospectors and is remembered by the Globe and Mail as a ‘legend’ in the industry. JPS and his beloved wife Margorie were ardent and early advocates of human rights and were known for their lifetime of philanthropic work. Their love of the north, its people and wilderness never wavered.
Patrick Sheridan Junior is proud to continue the legacy of his much-loved father on behalf of the Sheridan family. Learning first-hand from a pioneer of responsible exploration, Patrick Junior continued his father’s life’s work.
