Bill is the author of two popular books on the topic: the recently published Resource Reckoning: a Strategist’s Guide from A to Z and the 2012 milestone Resource Rulers: Fortune and Folly on Canada’s Road to Resources.

In this episode Bill touches on a wide range of topics that include: the legal framework underpinning native land rights in Canada; the 279-decision “winning streak” of aboriginal groups in Canadian courts with respect to land-rights cases; psychological pitfalls to avoid at the negotiating table; native land rights in Labrador, Quebec and British Columbia; and tales from his days as an advisor to Inco as it negotiated with Innu and Inuit groups near its Voisey’s Bay nickel project in Labrador.

In a promoted-content Mining Minute segment, Max Sali, CEO of newly listed Barrian Mining (TSXV: BARI), talks about his firm’s Sleeper silver-gold project in New Mexico, which complements his firm’s flagship Bolo gold asset in Nevada. Visit www.barrianmining.com for more information.
