Red Lake in Ontario is one of the globe's most well-known mining destinations and has generated over 30 million ounces of gold in its history.
Rogers, a geologist with 40 years' experience, will be responsible for all exploration activities, starting immediately at its Panama Lake project, Maxtech said.
Starting out in 1980, he spent almost 30 years in the Red Lake Gold mining camp in roles as chief geologist, exploration manager and as president of a junior explorer.
The first exploration drill holes into what ultimately became Goldcorp's High Grade Gold Zone were drilled on his watch, noted Maxtech.
"Jim was instrumental in defining one of the maiden resources in the Red Lake mining district. It is a testament to the quality of the project at Panama Lake that Maxtech was able to attract someone of Jim’s caliber. He brings a wealth of experience to the company and we are delighted to have Jim guiding our exploration efforts," said Peter Wilson, CEO at Maxtech.
