- David Elliott, industry veteran and member of Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, cites right people, right science as key factors to mining success
- Elliott finds certain jurisdictions, including Canada and South America, compelling mining locations
- Led by industry-seasoned professionals and operating in Canada and Chile, GoldHaven Resources appears well positioned to respond to mining investors’ demands
During an interview at the recent Global Mining Symposium, David Elliott, a new member of the premier Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, noted that the right people and the right science are critical elements that investors look at when determining which mining companies to invest in (https://ibn.fm/haIyD). GoldHaven Resources (CSE: GOH) (OTCQB: ATUMF), a junior mining company lead by an executive team with significant mining and scientific experience, is well equipped with strengths investors seek when making decisions about capital placement.
Elliott is a founding partner at Haywood Securities, a company he built from a small firm into a major merchant bank with around $10 billion of assets under management. He is also a mining veteran who has backed more than 400 junior mining exploration companies. As a seasoned industry professional with a proven track record of success, he is adamant that two things are essential for investing in the mining space: the right people and the right science.
“To me, it always boils down to people” he said during the interview. “I’ve always focused on backing intelligent science, so I always wanted to partner with geoscientists that have strong technical skills, who spent a lot of time in the field, mapping, have worked in different geological environments and have a passion for discoveries.”
With more than 30 years of mining experience, Elliott noted that geologically endowment is not the be-all and end-all of success in the industry. Some jurisdictions, although geologically endowed, may not be in mining-friendly countries where mining companies can get social acceptance and a permit to mine.
“The world is shrinking where you want to put your investment dollars,” he explained. “North America, Canada is a good place. I think Australia has the geology and you can build a mine. There are a few places in South America that can deliver. Colombia is an interesting geological setting where you have these deep-seated intersection zones that can create sizeable deposits.”
As a Canadian junior mining company lead by an experienced team and active in the Maricunga Gold Belt in Northern Chile and Adam West in British Columbia, Canada GoldHaven Resources appears well-positioned to respond to today’s mining investors’ demand. GOH’s executive team includes CEO Daniel Schieber. Schieber established his career in metals and mining finance as an analyst for the Stabilitas Group of Funds. He also co-founded Euroscandic International Group, raising an estimated $350 million in project financing for development projects in the mining sector.
Other key team leaders include David Smith, president, co-founder and director David Smith, who has been closely aligned with corporate development of a number of mining companies in South America for more than eight years; head of exploration and director Patrick Burns, a Canadian geologist with over 40 years of experience; director Gordon Ellis, a professional engineer and entrepreneur with more than 50 years of experience in mining and resource development; and Scott Dunbar, who has decades of experience as a geologist worldwide and presently is the department head of Mining Engineering at the University of British Columbia.
As a company well-positioned to leverage key mining strengths required in today’s business environment, GoldHaven Resources may offer compelling value potential for investors seeking to invest capital in the sector.
