April Whitney

Board Member


April doesn’t sit on the sidelines. You can find her out on the slopes skiing, hiking in Idaho’s backcountry, working in her garden or spending time with her husband and daughter. When April learned about the Stibnite Gold Project, she realized this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a mining company to restore an area in need of repair and decided she needed to get involved. As a board member, she wants to make sure the voices of the community are heard and that people have the information they need about Perpetua Resources' future plans. April lives in McCall and works as the communications director for Brundage Mountain Resort.

Andrew Mentzer

Board Member


As an Idaho native and avid fisherman, Andrew cares deeply about protecting Idaho’s waterways and restoring previously disturbed lands. He joined the Perpetua Resources Board because he would like to see native fish populations able to migrate back to their spawning grounds on the East Fork of the South Fork of the Salmon River and believes Perpetua can make it happen. Andrew is the executive director of the West Central Mountains Economic Development Council and coordinator of the College of Western Idaho’s ApprenticeshipIdaho program. Outside of work, you can find Andrew, his wife and dog mountain biking, trail running, skiing, or fishing off the beaten path.

Shauna Arnold

Board Member


Residents in Cascade know if they ever need help, Shauna will be one of the first ones there. She loves serving her community and joined the Perpetua Resources Board to ensure Cascade had a voice in the Stibnite Gold Project. She is the eyes and ears of the community and helps residents learn more about the project and how they can get involved. As an Idaho-native, Shauna is excited to be part of a project that transforms an area in need of repair and leaves a positive legacy for future generations. When Shauna isn’t volunteering or working as a massage therapist, you can often find her hiking, spending time in her garden or with her husband and two children.
