Peter Munk in 2007.
In this episode Northern Miner editor-in-chief John Cumming and senior staff writer Trish Saywell look back at the remarkable life and career of Barrick Gold founder Peter Munk, who died on March 28.
From humble origins as an immigrant to Canada, Munk showed an acute business savvy that shone brightly through a series of ventures that ranged from consumer electronics and South Pacific resorts to gold mining and real estate.
