Wayne is a graduate in Earth Sciences (Geology) from the University of Toronto. His extensive experience covers the complete geological and geophysical suite of exploration techniques with an emphasis on Ontario and Quebec.

Melkior is adequately positioned in the current environment to continue its important exploration business.

Jens Hansen, P. Eng, CEO of Melkior stated, "Wayne's appointment brings important exploration talent to Melkior and emphasizes the Company's strong commitment to exploration in Ontario and Quebec.
