Dr. Rasmussen has more than 25 years of experience in mining and exploration in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Peru. Dr. Rasmussen is the Vice President, Exploration for Mines Management, Inc. and held senior roles at Echo Bay Mines and Kinross Gold Corporation and Endeavour Silver Corp. He earned a PhD in Economic Geology from the University of Washington and a masters degree in geological sciences from Loma Linda University. He is a member of the Society of Economic Geologists, Geological Society of America, Northwest Mining Association, and the American Institute of Professional Geologists. He has conducted exploration extensively throughout Mexico, having overseen programs in the states of Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi, and elsewhere throughout the Sierra Madre, as well as having been responsible for exploration in New Mexico, British Columbia and Washington State, where he has been credited with the discovery of the Emanuel Creek epithermal gold deposit for Echo Bay Mines.
