Sam Coalridge

Senior Consultant (Vancouver & Western Canada)

Sam comes from a long line of miners, back to his great great grandfather who was a “Fortyniner” in the Californian gold rush. He was born in Vancouver and trained as a geologist, becoming the Chief Geologist of a small gold mining company in the nineties. Recently he has travelled the world as an independent geologist Consultant, but kept his office in Vancouver where he runs a team of two researchers. His local knowledge and expertise are an obvious asset to Westminster Mining, so he recently became the Consultant for Western Canada and Alaska.
