This week we’re talking cash, capital markets and industry trends in 2018. Matt is joined on the floor of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC) by Oxygen Capital founder and chairman Mark O’Dea to discuss the current state of the market and the recent rally in commodity prices (6:55).

O’Dea has built 9 companies over the past 15 years generating $3 billion in shareholder returns. He recounts his experience financing and building the Karma gold mine in Burkina Faso with True Gold Mining during the recent downturn. The company was acquired by Endeavour Mining (TSX: EDV) for $240 million in late 2016 (9:45).

We also chat about alternative financing models, access to capital and greenfield exploration. O’Dea also outlines Oxygen’s two most recent base-metal projects, Discovery Metals (TSXV: DSV; US-OTC: AYYBF) in Mexico and Sun Metals in British Columbia.

Meanwhile, Matt drills down into Pretium Resources‘ (TSX: PVG; NYSE: PVG) recent struggles in the market following an underperformance at its flagship Brucejack underground mine in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle (22:08). He discusses the company’s response to the market criticism and The Northern Miner’s exclusive interview with Pretium president and CEO Joseph Ovsenek.
