In this episode we chat to Molly Hunsaker from Hunsaker Incorporated, whose family controls 100% of the Majuba Hill District, a large contiguous land position, located northeast of Reno, Nevada where their copper, silver and gold project is comprised of extensive mineral and surface rights held by private ownership, patented mining claims, and Federal Lode Mining claims.
Molly is an experienced field geologist and talk us through her journey, working with her father in the family business and the exciting project that unearthing at Majuba Hill.
- Molly works in the wester United States, and specialises in early-stage exploration projects being staked from ground zero.
- Exploration geology involves beginning at the fundamental exploration stage, and deciding whether or not a mine is worth pursuing.
- Working in a family business can be challenging, especially when you love what you do. Down time is hard to find, as business creeps into every aspect of life.
- The ultimate goal of the project is to make as significant a contribution to geology as possible. This is the legacy being aimed for by the Hunsacker family.
