Liberty Gold’s VP Exploration and Geoscience, Dr. Moira Smith, Receives The 2019 AME Colin Spence Award for Her Essential Contribution to the Discovery of the Long Canyon Gold Deposit, Nevada

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Gold Corp. (LGD-TSX) (“Liberty Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Dr. Moira Smith is the recipient of the Association for Mineral Exploration 2019 Colin Spence Award for her role in the discovery and delineation of the high-grade Long Canyon gold deposit in Nevada, U.S.

The Colin Spence Award is a prestigious Canadian Mining industry award, recognizing Excellence in Global Mineral Exploration. It is awarded to those who have made a significant contribution to enhance the mineral resources within Canada or in foreign countries through the original application of prospecting techniques or other geoscience technology.

“We are thrilled to see Dr. Moira Smith receive this exciting award. Very few teams make a mineral discovery that becomes an operating mine especially one as high grade as Long Canyon,” stated Dr. Mark O’Dea, Chairman of Liberty Gold and former CEO of Fronteer Gold Inc. “Moira, as the technical leader of Fronteer Gold’s Long Canyon team, countered conventional thinking to advance a project long ignored because the location and geology were considered wrong. Focused on geological first principles, Moira created a new geological model for this part of eastern Nevada that guided the full discovery and delineation of the multi-million ounce, high-grade, Carlin-style Long Canyon, gold deposit, which recently completed its third year of commercial production by Newmont.”


Liberty Gold is focused on exploring the Great Basin of the United States, home to large-scale gold projects that are ideal for open-pit mining. This region is one of the most prolific gold-producing regions in the world and stretches across Nevada and into Idaho and Utah. We know the Great Basin and are driven to discover and advance big gold deposits that can be mined profitably in open-pit scenarios. Our flagship projects are Black Pine in Idaho and Goldstrike in Utah, both past producing open-pit mines, where previous operators only scratched the surface.
