Ronald K. Netolitzky, M.Sc. Geology

President & CEO, Director

Mr. Netolitzky has over 40 years of experience and has been very successful in mining exploration. He was the President and CEO of Santoy Resources Ltd., an exploration stage company focused on discovering and developing high-grade uranium deposits throughout North America, before becoming Virginia Energy Resources Inc. Mr. Netolitzky has been directly associated with three major gold discoveries in Canada that have subsequently been put into production including, Eskay Creek, Snip and Brewery Creek.

Ron Netolitzky was the first to recognize the gold potential of the La Ronge Gold Belt. In the late 1970s, Ron initiated the acquisition of a large land package comprised of a prospecting permit and claim blocks (about 200,000 hectares) covering most of the prospective area north of the Churchill River (similar to the area presently held by Golden Band).

Ron was later to be instrumental in the discovery of the Snip, Eskay Creek and the Brewery Creek gold deposits in BC and Yukon, earning him the Prospector of the Year Award in 1990 from the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. Most recently, his Viceroy Exploration was acquired by Yamana Gold Inc. for its Gualcamayo gold deposit.

In May of 2010, Ron was an integral part of Osisko Mining Corporation's acquisition of 77.28% interest in Brett Resources Inc., which was strongly endorsed by the shareholders. The acquisition represents a healthy ROI for Brett Resources shareholders. Ron also sits on the board of several publicly traded companies.

Prior to Goldbrook, Brian was a Director of the regional mapping and economic geology group with the British Columbia Geological Survey, where for over 20 years he acquired extensive experience dealing with government issues and organizations. He also has had significant expertise in mineral exploration during his career with a number of senior mining companies, notably Falconbridge (now Xstrata) and the exploration of the Donaldson, Katinniq and 2&3 Ni-Cu-PGE deposits in the Raglan Belt, Quebec, during the early 1970s. Brian's career also includes managing exploration programs in Peru, project geologist exploring for diamonds and other commodities in Africa, managing diamonds, gold and base metals projects in British Columbia for BP-Selco, working on gold, coal, base metals and industrial minerals in the Canadian Maritimes, VMS exploration in Archean greenstones in central Canada, and he made uranium discoveries in the southern Athabasca Basin for Uranerz Exploration and Mining.
