Rob McEwen, Chairman of McEwen Mining and McEwen Copper is returning to speak at CTMF as a guest speaker during the Tuesday May 9 reception. Rob will speak about:
Entering a New Super Cycle for Metals Without the Workforce to Maximize the Moment!
Geopolitical tensions, trade sanctions have disrupted global trade. As a result, countries as well as large multinationals are beginning to scramble for metals, something they haven’t thought about for a long time. The energy transformation is adding to the demand for secure and in many cases in-country sources of supply. Compounding our ability to scale up to meet this increased demand is the shortage of graduates, in the west, looking to work in exploration, mining and processing. Our challenge is a bit of a paradox. What do we have to do to attract individuals to an industry out of favor with the general population but offers some of the highest paying jobs in many countries?
Rob is the Chairman, Chief Owner of McEwen Mining which has four mines located in USA, Canada, Mexico and Argentina. Associated with the gold industry all of his career, the first 18 years in the investment industry and since 1990 as CEO of several gold mining companies. He is the Founder of Gold Corp Inc. where Rob grew its market capitalization from $50 million to over $8 billion. At McEwen Mining (MUX) he owns 17% of the company, and takes a salary of $1/year. The cost of his investment in MUX and McEwen Copper exceeds $220 million. Rob and his wife have donated over $60 million to encourage excellence and innovation in healthcare and education. Rob is the recipient of many awards; including the Order of Canada, Canadian Mining Hall of Fame member, Honorary Doctor of Law Degrees from York University and Western University.
