Aeonian is cultivating a portfolio of grass roots projects across British Columbia with a varied mineral inventory. Sites are selected after careful analysis and compilation of historical data, often in areas which are currently overlooked despite open ground and historical mineral wealth. Some projects spring from conceptual ideas – taking the collective knowledge we have about the Province and applying that to areas that exhibit the right geological environments.
To create viable exploration opportunities and challenge the “status quo” through means that promote stewardship of the land, contribute toward a stable climate, integrate indigenous ideals whilst moving towards the decolonization of mineral development, and build equitable relationships with all stakeholders. We are driven to find the balance between conservation, development, economic opportunity, and demand, and want to inspire other businesses to make the shift.
We will work towards redefining grassroots mineral exploration by shifting the focus of stewardship, inclusivity, and transparency into the earliest of stages of project definition. We will select projects based on their scientific merit, progressive jurisdictions, and ability to mitigate impacts. Our business model will be built off “adaptive planning”, shifting gears to suit the requirements of communities whilst reacting to changing demands. We will seek to learn as much as we teach, and strive to create projects that are sustainable, providing opportunities at every stage.
