"Spud" Huestis Award Excellence in Prospecting and Mineral Exploration Recipients: Rob Carpenter, Craig Finnigan, Adam Simmons, Tim Smith and Alan Wainwright Rob Carpenter, Craig Finnigan, Adam Simmons, Tim Smith and Alan Wainwright were the recipi- ents of the 2013 H.H. "Spud" Huestis Award for excellence in prospecting and mineral exploration. They are rec- ognized for their role in Kaminak Gold Corporation's exploration and develop- ment of the Coffee gold project. The 100 per cent owned Coffee gold project lies within the emerging White Gold District of west-central Yukon. In June 2009, Rob Carpenter and Craig Finnigan reviewed the early property data with its attractive gold-path´Čünder element geochemical anomalies; based on these observations, they recognized the favour- able exploration potential for major gold occurrences. This assessment prompted the acquisition of the key claims by way of an option agreement with Yukon pros- pector Shawn Ryan. The project has since expanded by staking to cover approxi- mately 600 square kilometres. Under the leadership of president and CEO Rob Carpenter, Kaminak raised and invested $77 million in an aggressive exploration program from 2009 to 2012.
