In this episode we welcome into the Toronto studio author, geologist and communications professional Nean Allman to talk about her newly published coffee table book “A history: Placer Development Limited and Placer Dome Inc.”
Nean and Northern Miner editor-in-chief John Cumming explore the rich legacy of the Vancouver-based major that grew to become one of the world’s largest gold mining companies before its takeover by Barrick Gold a decade ago. Nean shares stories that include Placer Dome’s exotic origins and its connection to U.S. aviator Amelia Earhart and her final flight in the South Pacific.
