  5. 5. 5Technical AdvisorsTony Floyd, P. GeoMr. Floyd obtained his academic credentials in the United Kingdom. First with a B.Sc. Honours degree in geology from the University ofNottingham and then a M.Sc in Mineral Exploration and Mining Geology from the University of Leicester. In 1987 he formed BridgerResources Inc. Bridger was one of the first juniors to conduct exploration and development in Chile. In 1990 Bridger became a highgrade gold producer from its La Pepa project in the Maricunga district of Chile. In 1993 political change in Peru led Mr Floyd to formInca Pacific Resources Inc. Inca Pacific was amongst the first wave of explorers in Peru which allowed it to assemble an impressiveportfolio of prospects. In 1999 this came to fruition when a very significant discovery was made at its Magistral Copper/Molybdenumproperty. In 2002, Ross Beaty, Anthony Floyd and Robert Pirooz founded the Lumina Copper Group (comprised of Lumina Copper Corp. and itssuccessor companies: Regalito Copper Corp., Lumina Resources Corp., Northern Peru Copper Corp. and Global Copper Corp.), ofwhich: Regalito Copper Corp. was acquired by Pan Pacific Copper Co., Ltd. for approximately CAD $135 million in 2006; LuminaResources Corp. was acquired by Western Copper Corp. for approximately CAD $27 million in 2006; Northern Peru Copper Corp. wasacquired by China Minmetals Nonferrous Metals Co., Ltd. and Jiangxi Copper Company Ltd. for approximately CAD $455 million inJanuary 2008; and Global Copper Corp. was acquired by Teck Cominco Limited for approximately CAD $415 million in August 2008.Mr. Floyd is currently chairman of Inca Pacific Resources Inc.Bert Jeffries, P. GeoMr. Jeffries is a graduate of the Mackay School of Mines, University of Nevada-Reno, with a Bachelor of Science degree in geology. Heis a registered professional geologist with over 30 years of experience across the mining spectrum, ranging from exploration to projectand construction management. As part of the original Cordex exploration syndicate in Nevada, Mr. Jeffries contributed to multiplediscoveries including the Pinson, Florida Canyon, Sterling and Prebble gold mines. He also worked as a consulting geologist,managing exploration that resulted in the discovery of the Beartrack gold mine in Idaho.In the area of mine-construction management, Mr. Jeffries has worked extensively for major and mid-tier miners, including BarrickGold, Western Goldfields and Kinross Gold. He was a member of the Barrick team that developed and constructed the Pierina goldmine in Peru, the Bulyanhulu gold mine in Tanzania and the Veladero gold mine in Argentina. During this period, he also worked inChile as the project manager for the El Indio and Tambo gold mine closure project, and worked on Barricks Pascua Lama project inChile-Argentina and the Lagunas Norte project in Peru. More recently, Mr. Jeffries managed construction for Western GoldfieldsMesquite gold mine in Southern California and Kinross Golds Fort Knox gold mine in Alaska.
