Included as a magazine in our latest issue is our newest research report entitled New Frontiers in Mining Finance, which analyses the results of a Northern Miner reader survey of attitudes towards alternative mining financing, culminating in a must-read roundtable discussion between 13 Bay and Howe street heavyweights.
The topics dealt with include the present state of mining finance; royalties and streaming; private equity; flow-through and charity flow-through; and equity crowdfunding.
The roundtable participants represent all facets of today’s mining finance scene: Ian Ball, president and CEO of Abitibi Royalties; Carol Banducci, executive vice-president and CFO of Iamgold; Andrew Farncomb, managing partner at Cairn Merchant Partners; Liam M. Fitzgerald, partner and national mining leader at PwC Canada; David Harquail, president and CEO of Franco-Nevada; Oscar A. Jofre, Jr., regulated crowdfunding advisor at KoreConX; Trent Mell, president and head of mining at PearTree Securities; Randy Smallwood, president and CEO of Silver Wheaton; Kerry Smith, vice-president and senior mining analyst at Haywood Securities; David Thomas, managing director (Canada) of Resource Capital Funds; Rod Thomas, president of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada; Darin Wagner, president and CEO of Balmoral Resources; Chad Williams, president and CEO of Red Cloud Mining Capital. Northern Miner publisher Anthony Vaccaro served as moderator.
The research report was sponsored by Toronto-based securities firm and flow-through specialists PearTree Securities.
