This mini-podcast features a clash of visions between Franco-Nevada chairman Pierre Lassonde and new Barrick Gold president and CEO Mark Bristow on the value of keeping Barrick’s Canadian identity and robust head office presence in Toronto.

Mark Bristow

With Bristow becoming Barrick’s operating head on Jan. 1 with the finalization of the merger between Barrick and Bristow’s Randgold Resources, Lassonde had a few choice words to say about the matter in the media and at the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame induction ceremony in January.

During Bristow’s first conference call with Barrick shareholders on Feb. 13, he gave a fuller explanation of the company’s corporate restructuring, and rebutted what he called “those short little hysterical cries about us closing down stuff.”

Mark Bristow will be one of five keynote speakers at The Northern Miner‘s third annual Canadian Mining Symposium at Canada House in London on May 22. Click here for more details.
