Queen's University at Kingston (commonly shortened to Queen's University or Queen's) is a public research university located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Founded on 16 October 1841, the university predated the founding of Canada by 26 years. Queen's holds more than 1,400 hectares (3,500 acres) of land throughout Ontario and owns Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England. Queen's is organized into ten undergraduate, graduate and professional faculties and schools. The Church of Scotland established Queen's College in 1841 with a royal charter from Queen Victoria. The first classes, intended to prepare students for the ministry, were held 7 March 1842 with 13 students and two professors. Queen's was the first university west of the maritime provinces to admit women, and to form a student government. In 1883, a women's college for medical education affiliated with Queen's University. In 1888, Queen's University began offering extension courses, becoming the first Canadian university to do so. In 1912, Queen's secularized and changed to its present legal name.

B.Sc. in Geology

University of Ottawa is a bilingual public research university in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The main campus is located on 42.5 hectares (105 acres) in the residential neighbourhood of Sandy Hill, adjacent to Ottawa's Rideau Canal. The University offers a wide variety of academic programs, administered by ten faculties. The University of Ottawa was first established as the College of Bytown in 1848 by the first bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ottawa Joseph-Bruno Guigues (French priest). Placed under the direction of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, it was renamed the College of Ottawa in 1861 and received university status five years later through royal charter. On 5 February 1889, the University was granted a pontifical charter by Pope Leo XIII, elevating the institution to a pontifical university. The University was reorganized on 1 July 1965 as a corporation, independent from any outside body or religious organization. As a result, the civil and pontifical charters were kept by the newly created Saint Paul University, federated with the University. The remaining civil faculties were retained by the reorganized University.

Bear Creek's continued success is firmly rooted in several exploration principles for the discovery of economic mineral deposits: Discovery motivated The management and staff of Bear Creek share an unparalleled instinct for successful mineral projects. For instance, J. David Lowell, (former Chairman), has managed programs leading to the discovery of 10 ore deposits. Both Mr. Lowell and Bear Creek's current Chairman Catherine McLeod-Seltzer have substantial Peruvian experience. In 1993 they co-founded Arequipa Resources, the most aggressive gold exploration company in Peru, which was taken over by Barrick in mid-1996. Agile decision-making Bear Creek's depth of experience leads to effective decision-making regarding potential prospects. A field-oriented management style and a flat organizational structure provide for timely decisions and a continued focus on the most prospective targets. Having successful and experienced explorationists in the field to rapidly determine the economic potential of a prospect and to complete the acquisition provides for opportune response to market conditions. Field-directed application of funds Bear Creek has expended, on average, over 80% of its budgets on direct project exploration such as geologic mapping, drilling, geochemical sampling, or metallurgical test work. Focus on Peru Bear Creek's Peru-based management team is a blend of U.S. and Peruvian expertise with over 16 years of exploration experience in the country. By focusing on Peru, Bear Creek has developed valuable relationships with local gold and silver companies and property holders, and the company's field programs are provided the full support of management including valuable technical oversight. Bear Creek's experience in Peru provides a unique, in-depth knowledge of legal aspects of the Peru mining business as well as the business contacts necessary to explore and negotiate effectively. The team also offers broad experience with the complex social and environmental issues involved in exploration and project development in Peru. About Bear Creek Mining Company Bear Creek Mining was formed in 2000 as an exploration and development company focused on Peru, a mineral-rich nation with a favorable investment climate. The Company's Corani and Santa Ana Projects collectively host reserves and resources containing more than 500 million ounces of silver, plus by-product base metals, and provide near-term production potential and excellent leverage to silver prices. A positive Pre-Feasibility Study for the flagship Corani Project estimates average annual production of 10 million ounces for the first six years of a 27-year mine life, with low cash costs and fast payback of capital costs. A positive scoping study for Santa Ana has examined a proposed, low-cost "pure silver" mine producing 5 million ounces annually in the first six years of an estimated 12-year mine life. Bear Creek Mining maintains aggressive exploration programs to expand resources at its core projects and add shareholder value to other quality properties. The Company is led by a socially responsible management team with an exceptional track record of mineral discovery and mine development success in Peru. History of Bear Creek Mining Company Until 1994, Bear Creek Mining Company was Kennecott Copper Corporation's U.S. exploration subsidiary. As exploration managers of the Kennecott subsidiary, Andy Swarthout, and Gerry Van Voorhis played a large role in building Bear Creek's reputation of integrity, being a leader in innovation, and developing exploration technology applications for discovery. In June 2000, Mr. Swarthout and Mr. Van Voorhis rejoined forces to form and obtain financing for a private company to continue exploration in Peru. The Bear Creek name was chosen for its positive historical significance and its reputation for emphasis on diligent geologic field interpretation combined with sound business practices. The objective of the new company was to use its Peru experience to perform grass roots generative and acquisition programs for copper and gold during a period when exploration efforts were decelerating and attractive properties were becoming available within favorable Peru mineral belts. Field evaluations, followed by drilling, would then be performed to add value to the properties. Financing was finalized in July 2000 with the formation of Peru Exploration Ventures, a Limited Partnership. A commitment of US$1.9M was raised from a group of respected mining executives, including J. David Lowell, former executives of ASARCO and Southern Peru Copper Corp., ex-outside directors of ASARCO, and MK Gold Corporation. David Volkert, former exploration manager of Peru for Barrick, was hired as vice-president of exploration, and the Peru exploration program was initiated in July 2000. By 2001, Bear Creek had focused its efforts to concentrate solely on precious metals exploration, and the current portfolio reflects the emphasis on high-quality gold and silver targets. During the two-year program from 2000 to 2002, Bear Creek established itself as a competitive, effective, and credible exploration company in Peru. The success is largely attributable to our staff, but also, importantly, to our low overhead of less than 20% of expenditures. Over 80% of the budget was applied to direct fieldwork and property evaluations, with 21% of the total budget dedicated towards drilling. The strategy to effectively drill test a property following a positive field evaluation is a long-held belief by Bear Creek management as critical to the discovery of ore and adding value for our investors
