About Us, Our Mission and Our Vision
Our mission and vision statements are easy. Our mission is to find gold and our vision is we find one or more economic gold deposits and develop or sell those deposits for a profit. When it makes sense for shareholders, we will employ the joint venture model.
Western Pacific Resources Corp. is a gold exploration company with outstanding management and geological teams. Western Pacific has the right people, financing support, and projects in place to succeed in making a world class discovery.
Warwick Smith is the company's CEO. Warwick provides the finance (with the help of his key advisors) and drives the promotional efforts. He also has extensive media contacts, helping create shareholder value and market awareness at a lower cost than your average mining company's marketing budget.
Eric Saderholm (President) is heading up the exploration side of the business. With a combined discovery resume of roughly 30 million ounces of gold in North America and beyond, his success speaks volumes about the potential chances of Western Pacific making a major share-moving discovery. Eric Saderholm worked for Newmont Mining for 12 years where his final position was Carlin Trend Exploration Manager, Regional Geologist. Eric was also the Chief Geologist at the Phoenix Mine, Lone Tree Complex and Mule Canyon Mine, all located in Nevada.
Eric is well known on the Nevada/Idaho mining scene, and our acquisition of Mineral Gulch (formerly Black Pine Mine), is due to his contact base and knowledge of local opportunities in the West, and in particular, Nevada and Idaho.
Mineral Gulch is in the south-eastern corner of Cassia County, Idaho. Historical production amounted to approximately 500,000 ounces of Gold. Pegasus Gold acquired the property from Noranda and produced gold from several small open pits in the late 1980's through the mid-1990's.
