About Michael Dehn
Mr. Michael Dehn brings an extensive track record working with some of the biggest names in mining, including executive leadership at numerous publicly traded companies and works on several projects that later went on to be acquired. Mr. Dehn’s experience spans early grassroots stages to advanced mineral exploration and production, including his well-known expertise in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt. Mr. Dehn began his career as one of the most notable geologists at Goldcorp Inc., just before the Red Lake High-Grade Zone Discovery, working as part of exploration teams instrumental in delivering multiple producing mines. Working with Goldcorp for 10 years, managing off mine site exploration with a team of up to 75 employees and consultants, and annual budgets often above CAN$20 million, Mr. Dehn and his team initiated the deep drilling at the Cochenour Mine in Red Lake District which is now in production (later sold to Evolution Mining Limited alongside Red Lake and Cambell mines and processing facilities for $375 million in cash, with up to an additional $100 million if new deposits are discovered).
During his tenure at Goldcorp, Mr. Dehn was also active in the exploration at Saskatchewan Minerals (later acquired, now Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals Inc., one of the world’s leading producers of natural high-quality sodium sulfate) and at Havelock Lime (also acquired, now part of Graymont Ltd., North America’s second-largest supplier of lime and lime-based products). Mr. Dehn filled similar roles consulting at Caledonia Mining Corporation when the company was active in diamonds in the North West Territories, and operating gold mines in South Africa while developing a gold mine in Scotland. Mr. Dehn has since gone on to fill key management roles at numerous publicly traded companies with listings across multiple exchanges including the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange owned by TMX Group Limited, Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and Berlin Stock Exchange.
“I’m very excited to be able to work with the strong technical and financial team at Temas Resources to advance the flagship La Blache property, particularly in light of my past work in that area, as well as having the opportunity to bring forward other high-value opportunities,” said Mr. Dehn, incoming President and CEO of Temas Resources. “The well-financed position at Temas Resources, alongside an agile and aggressive management team, presents our stakeholders with an opportunity to benefit from rapid identification of overlooked, high-value opportunities. It is the intention of Temas Resources to bring key mineral projects to production in the most efficient timeline and with the most effective use of capital possible.”
Mr. Dehn’s expertise in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt is well known, but less know is his abilities and experience in industrial minerals deposits, from discovery through permitting, and metallurgy testing through to customer acceptance. Having worked previously in the La Blache Anorthositic intrusive he worked closely with Process Research Ortech Inc. who have developed a process of leaching, solvent extraction, and micritization that has lead to commercially acceptable Titanium(IV) oxide from ilmenite ore for the paint and plastics industry. Mr. Dehn has also worked within apatite rich Anorthosite’s across the Grenville, rich in phosphorus for the fertilizer industry. He has permitted Fe-Ti-V rich anorthosites, and the focus of much of his last 10 years of Quebec focused exploration and development has been on ore bodies very similar to Temas Resources’ La Blache deposit.
