Mr. Stone is a registered Professional Geologist (OGQ - 02170 'temporaire restrictif') in the province of Quebec, Canada and is fluent in both English and French.

Prior to Laurentia, the bulk of his experiences came in the Australian iron ore industry, with his focus turning to gold since his relocation to Montreal in late 2017. He holds a Bachelor of Science (Mineral Exploration and Mining Geology) from Curtin University in Perth, Australia.

Albert Contardi, Interim President and CEO of QcX Gold commented, "I am pleased to welcome Aaron to the QcX team and am confident that his skill set is a perfect fit for QcX as we explore our Golden Giant and Fernet properties in James Bay and the Abitibi. He has a strong working relationship with Laurentia Exploration, our geological consultants, he is very proficient in modern exploration techniques and he is eager to lead our exploration programs and make discoveries."
