Peter George has been a naughty boy

My thanks to reader K for the headsup on this one. Check out this little section of this news release dated January 12th 2016 (your humble scribe’s highlights):

Mr. Peter Thomas George, P.Geo., was the QP for the Barkerville Project
in B.C., owned by Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. Faced with a public
hearing, Mr. George entered into a Consent Order with APEGBC by which
Mr. George admitted to unprofessional conduct in producing a substandard
technical report for Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. that failed to meet
the requirements of NI 43-101.

Mr. George also admitted to producing two
substandard technical reports for Rubicon Minerals Corporation for its
Phoenix Gold Project in Ontario
. Mr. George must pay a fine of $15,000,
costs of $20,000, and is subject to a number of conditions on his
membership with APEGBC, including the requirement that he not perform
mineral resource or reserve estimations as defined by NI 43-101.

Barkerville, ya say? Failed to meet 43-101 requirements, ya say? And Rubicon, ya say? Problem with the geological model at Phoenix, ya say? Now why does that one suddenly spring to mind…
Oh by the way, Peter George is the very same geol who brought us the Pretium (PVG) gold resource numbers but hey….fuggetaboutit.

PS: Reader MZ also reminds your author that Peter George was the man behind the Sans Gold resource. Spot any connections yet, Canada?

PPS: And reader JM notes that, “Peter George did Gold Eagle Mines “geologic potential” in Red Lake right
before Goldcorp paid $1.5B for the company. You could ask Goldcorp
how well there Cochenour (Bruce Channel deposit) project is going but
there is a pretty common theme forming

UPDATE: Good mailbag received on this from reader R, here.

UPDATE 2: IKN receives this from PretiVm investor relations:

In regards to the post Peter George has been a naughty boy  January 12, 2016
It states: “Oh by the way, Peter George is the very same geol who brought us the Pretium (PVG) gold resource number”
George has had no association with Pretium’s Brucejack project and has
never worked for Pretium Resources Inc. so the details you have posted
are misleading.
I would request you make that correction or let me know how you substantiate that claim so I can address it.
Thank you
