There will be many experts discussing opportunities and how miners are raising capital today including key note speakers Peter Grosskopf, CEO of Sprott & Managing Director of Sprott Resource Lending and Douglas B. Groh, Portfolio Manager, Tocqueville Asset Management. They will speak about the investing, lending and outlook for capital raising and financing of gold projects and companies as well as changing current equity financing trends and return of public equity investing through actively managed and dedicated funds. 

Doug Silver, Portfolio Manager at Orion Mine Finance will also be a key note speaker talking about the importance of and How to Optimize All Mine Stakeholders’ Concerns and how society’s and capital market rules of conduct are continuing to evolve, requiring mineral and mining companies to adapt to the times. The old adage “We only work for our shareholders” no longer passes the smell test. Today miners and explorers need to optimize all stakeholders’ concerns in order to obtain and maintain their social license. A question is whether this is economically feasible. Doug will discuss the paradigm shift and discuss how investors and owners are adapting to change.

These themes will be discussed in other CTMF round table panels with time for audience Q&A. Join us, hear, meet with and get your questions answered by many other excellent speakers and panel discussions at CTMF 2020 as well as during six 
engaging, excellent workshops.
