Awarded To: C. Mark Rebagliati

"For outstanding achievements in international exploration and in recognition for his leadership of the Hunter Dickinson Inc. exploration team in the discoveries of the Mt. Milligan, Kemess South, Xietongmen and Pebble East porphyry copper-gold deposits, Campo Morado as a VMS district and for his lecture: "Exploration 101 & A Career in Economic Geology."
Mark Rebagliati graduated from Michigan Technological University in 1969 with a B.S. in geological engineering. He held positions in Canada with Teck Cominco, Silver Standard Mines, Newconex Canadian Exploration, Saskatchewan Mining Development Corporation; Anaconda, Selco and BP Minerals. In 1986, after being “out-placed” by BP Mark formed Rebagliati Geological Consulting Ltd based in Vancouver, Canada. As a mineral exploration consultant with a portfolio of ideas he developed an association with the Vancouver-based Hunter Dickinson group of companies, an association that has persisted for 22 years. In association with Hunter Dickinson he has been involved in exploration for PGE in South Africa and Brazil, epithermal, massive sulfide and porphyry deposits in North and South America, the Pacific Islands and Asia. He played a leading role in the discovery of the Mount Milligan, Southern Star and Kemess South porphyry copper-gold deposits in British Columbia; a cluster of polymetallic volcanic hosted massive sulfide deposits at Campo Morado, Mexico; the world-class Pebble East porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum deposit in Alaska and the Xietongman and Newtongmen porphyry copper-gold deposits in China. Mark is the 1992 recipient of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines H. H. Huestis award for excellence in mineral exploration. He was named Prospector of the Year in 1997 by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and a co recipient of their Thayer Lindsely International Discovery Award in 2007.
