Stockhead’s ‘Garimpeiro’ columnist Barry FitzGerald is back in the radio booth for another instalment of The Explorers Podcast.

In this episode Barry talks with Phil Crabb, industry veteran and director of Ora Gold (ASX:OAU).

Boasting 50 years of experience in the minerals exploration game, Phil has been responsible for floating 12 public companies, many of which were successful explorers before they were taken over.

Some of the standouts include United Minerals Corporation, whose high-grade Railway iron ore deposit adjacent to BHP Billiton’s (ASX:BHP) Mining Area C led the mining giant to make a $204m takeover offer, and Gascoyne Gold Mines.

Gascoyne, which found the Yilgarn Star deposit, was taken over by Sons of Gwalia and Coeur D’Alene Mines.

During this time, Crabb also discovered the Plutonic Bore gold mine, Black Lady gold mine, the Mt Henry gold resource near Norseman, the Copernicus nickel deposit in the Kimberley, and the Marvel Lock gold mine.

Now focused on Ora Gold, Phil oversees the company’s majority holding in the Abbotts Greenstone Belt just 20km northwest of Meekatharra and is looking to carry out a low-cost development of its existing shallow gold resources like the Crown Prince prospect within the Garden Gully project.

So tune in to hear the pair discuss faith in the Murchison, an undiscovered Kalgoorlie and Costello’s gold reserve blunder.
