Episode 92 of Down to Business podcast
Normally, thousands of geologists and engineers descend on Toronto in early March for a mining industry conference.
To mark this event, hosted by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, which is being held virtually this year because of the pandemic, Mark Bristow, chief executive of Barrick Gold Corp., joined Down to Business to discuss the many issues in front of the mining industry.
Bristow took the helm of Barrick in 2019 after it acquired his much smaller company, Randgold Resources, where he successfully developing mines throughout Africa and earned a reputation as an able operator. He talked about mining in impoverished countries, gold prices and the pandemic.
