As a senior-level geologist, he has participated in the generation, assessment, and acquisition of projects, structurally based field mapping, and selection of exploration drilling targets, including First Liberty's recently acquired Arabia Project. Dr. Johnston is also engaged in ongoing research on the genesis of Carlin-type deposits and their relationships to porphyry and polymetallic deposits, and has published an exploration model used successfully to discover the Helen Zone at the McCoy-Cove property in Nevada.
