The G2 Goldfields team is comprised of professionals who have been involved in the discovery of more than 7 million ounces of gold in Guyana and the financing and development of Guyana’s largest gold mine (RPA, 43-101, Technical Report on the Aurora Gold Mine, March 31, 2020).

The Oko Main Zone discovery is the initial fruit of the application of this extensive in-country experience. Ongoing exploration within the 17km long Aremu – Oko trend has generated multiple drill targets, similar in geological setting and scale to Oko Main. The Aremu – Oko district has been a prolific alluvial goldfield since the rush of the 1870’s.

Modern exploration by the G2 Goldfields team has begun and continues to reveal the exceptional potential of this district

John Patrick Sheridan Senior

1933 – 2015

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.
