His resume speaks for itself and his importance to our company moving forward cannot be overstated. Alan will work alongside Wayne (Holmstead), John (Grant), and Chad (Gloster), and be heavily involved with all aspects of our exploration program. I feel we have assembled a first-class team and I could not be more excited for the future,” remarked Colin Keith, Atacama’s President and CEO.

He has an outstanding track record, is highly respected, and has technical expertise combined with industry-wide connections. It is a natural fit,” said David Berry, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Atacama.
