It’s always fun to have the experts on Dirt Talk – not only do co-hosts Aaron Witt and Alex Horton learn about the guest, they learn an extraordinary amount in general. And on episode 90 of Dirt Talk, the guys definitely learn tons from Johnathan More. Johnathan is the Chairperson & CEO of Starr Peak Mining Ltd, a Canadian-based company focused on exploratory mining and land acquisition. Johnathan also now lives in Aaron’s hometown (Scottsdale, AZ) and sends one of his kids to Aaron’s old school.

Aaron and Johnathan get into the nitty-gritty of acquiring land in order to start drilling, why there are so many mining companies in Canada, and what the land development process looks like to start a mine.

Thanks to Johnathan More and Starr Peak Mining Ltd!
