Data Scientist
Mikhail is a programmer with a background in geosciences. He holds a B.Sc. degree in Earth Sciences and M.Sc. degree in Planetary Geoscience from Brock University. He wrote his M.Sc. thesis on the structural geology of Valles Marineris, Mars, based on morphometric analysis of LiDAR topography. His current PhD research (conducted at Jacobs University Bremen) involves developing and implementing geospatial interoperability standards so that data from different sources can be used together to constrain distribution of extraterrestrial mineral deposits.

Alex Gallardo

Exploration Manager
Alex is an exploration geologist with extensive planning and management experience in global gold and base metal systems. His Masters project (Laurentian University) focused on the application of spectral imagery of glacial clasts for grassroots exploration. Prior to joining the company, Alex worked closely with the team through the discovery and growth of the Regnault gold system and additional project advancements of the company’s Quebec projects.

Vytautas Banys

Exploration Manager
Vytautas is an exploration geologist who has been responsible for planning and managing multi-faceted grassroots exploration projects since 2016. Prior to joining the company, Vytautas worked with DeBeers and Groundtruth Exploration, across northern Canada and United States, advancing projects through large-scale reconnaissance to drill-stage exploration.

Mathieu Charette

Exploration Manager
Mathieu is an exploration geologist with over 15 years of experience in the mineral industry with a focus on gold exploration. He has implemented multiple drill programs from grassroots to late-stage exploration projects across Canada, Latin America and West Africa. Mathieu was first involved with Kenorland in 2019 supporting the Chicobi and Frotet projects before joining the team in 2022.

Cédric Mayer, P.Geo.

Senior Project Geologist
Cédric is a senior project geologist with extensive experience in greenfield exploration. His Masters project (Laurentian University) was focused on correlating the Merensky Reef to the Platreef in the Bushveld Igneous Complex using strontium isotopes. Cédric has worked with both government entities (Ontario Geological Survey and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada) and mineral exploration companies focused on grassroots to advanced stage exploration for gold, Ni-Cu-PGE and VMS deposits. His most recent role as project geologist focused on resource expansion drilling at the Martinière Gold Deposit in the northern Abitibi greenstone belt, with Wallbridge Mining Company Limited. Cédric joined the team in 2022, focusing on geological modelling and management of drill programs at the Frotet Project.
