The CIM Red Lake Branch Exploration Roundup 2010 was held this past June at the Cochenour Hall in Red Lake, Ontario. Over 40 participants attended the morning session presentations, which focused on exploration in the Red Lake camp. Kicking off the session, Andreas Lichtblau and Carmen Storey of the Red Lake Resident Geologist Office gave an overview of local exploration activities of the previous year. Other speakers included Ian Russell of Rubicon Minerals and Jim Rogers of Mega Precious Metals who presented in-depth updates on their respective companies’ projects.  Over 20 people were treated to an afternoon field trip, led by Goldcorp’s chief geologist Dean Crick, to Tucker’s Knob — a new stripped outcrop area — courtesy of Goldcorp Inc.’s Red Lake Mines.
