ANDY RANDELL, BSc, PGeo, QP

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, CHIEF GEOLOGIST, DIRECTOR & FOUNDER OF AEONIAN RESOURCES

Andy is a professionally registered geoscientist, and a white settler of English ancestry, living as a guest on unceded xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil Waututh) territory.

He graduated from the University of Cardiff (Wales) in 1998 with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Geoscience, but initially specialized in paleontology.

He took a break from geology due to a lack of opportunity in the United Kingdom in the early 2000’s, and so worked in the banking sector as a Financial Planner working on developing the new “Green” and ethical funds.

In 2003, he made contacts within the industry and was offered an opportunity to work as a Geotechnician for projects in Guyana. This eventually led to Projects in Yukon Territory, first as a Project Geologist for Victoria Gold, and then Chief Geologist for Ryan Gold Corp. The economic downturn in 2011 / 2012 forced Andy to diversify, which is where he established his consultancy, SGDS Hive and working with a wide range of clients and projects across the globe, including consulting for a sustainability project for the United Nations. He also established the non-profit Below BC which performs outreach and educational opportunities in geoscience. In 2016 he received the Bedford Young Mining Professional Award through the Canadian Institute of Mining (CIM).

Currently Andy sits on the board of Directors for the Association of Mineral Exploration (AME), and is the Chair of the CIM Geological Society and the newly formed advocacy body, BC Society of Engineers and Geoscientists. In 2020, Andy also took an opportunity to teach two 4th year university courses at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, namely the Indigenous Relations and Sustainability course and Mining Law & Ethics. In 2015, Andy and several industry peers founded “Below BC”, a non-profit association dedicated to outreach and education for Earth Sciences in the public space.

Andy founded Aeonian Resources to explore a more sustainable and transparent form of mineral exploration with the hope to inspire change at the grassroots level.
