This episode features an in-depth interview with the man of the hour in the gold-mining industry: Mark Bristow, president and CEO of Barrick Gold since Jan. 1, 2019, when its merger with Bristow-led gold miner Randgold Resources took effect.

This exclusive interview was recorded live as a “fireside chat” with senior staff writer Trish Saywell at The Northern Miner‘s Canadian Mining Symposium held at Canada House on Trafalgar Square in London, U.K., on May 22, 2019.

Mark and Trish touch on several topics, including: his fondness for extreme sports; his drive to optimize Barrick’s legacy mines; how to determine which assets are non-core to Barrick’s mission; his long-term bullishness on gold prices; and the need for expanded roles for younger mining engineers, especially in Canada.

This podcast is sponsored by the Yukon Mining Alliance (www.yukonminingalliance.ca).

  1. I played golf with Mr. Bristow once. I have been in mining for 40 years and would not have ever owned a Barrick share until they made Mr. Bristow their CEO. I think getting Mark as their CEO was and is the best thing Barrick has done in a while. By the way he still owes me like 20 golf balls. lol.
