Awful news from the Yukon. ATAC VP-Exploration, Julia Lane, died in plane crash yesterday.
She was 33.
Smart, savvy and very, very kind. She had achieved so much and had a brilliant career ahead of her.
I met her at Rackla a couple of years ago. She took the time to explain the geology of the deposit in simple enough terms that even I could understand it.
The Yukon is a very small place and the mining and exploration community even smaller. There are a lot of heartbroken people mourning the loss of this brilliant, young, geologist.
Here’s a write up which captures Julia’s sheer enthusiasm.
