This episode features Agnico Eagle Mines vice-chair and CEO Sean Boyd in a “fireside” chat with Northern Miner publisher Anthony Vaccaro. The in-depth interview was recorded live on-stage at The Northern Miner‘s Progressive Mine Forum held at the MaRS Discovery District in downtown Toronto in October 2018.
Sean and Anthony cover a wide range of topics, including: innovation at Agnico’s Goldex and LaRonde gold mines in Quebec; what it was like to follow in the footsteps of Agnico founder Paul Penna; how to foster prudent succession and internal promotions; and Agnico’s emerging Nunavut operational platform.
We also have the second of our “Sponsor Spotlight” segments: brief interviews with key personnel from the top sponsors of the Progressive Mine Forum. This episode has Canadian Mining Journal editor-in-chief Alisha Hiyate catching up with Sandvik’s Mikko Koivunen on the sidelines of the event. Mikko is Business Line Manager of Mine Automation and Digital Solutions at Sandvik Mining and Rock Technologies in Canada.
