Creating And Growing Wealth In Mining - with David Garofalo
In this podcast episode, we chat to David Garofalo, an experienced C-Suite executive in the precious metals space, and the current Chairman and CEO of many companies including Marshall Precious Metals Fund, Great Panther Mining Ltd, GoldMining Inc and a more recent appointment with Gold Royalty Corp. He is also former President and CEO of Goldcorp.
David has 30 years of experience in the creation and growth of multi-billion dollar sustainable mining businesses across multiple continents, and has many awards for his work. I wanted to get David on to the podcast to get his insights on running a leading and successful precious metals miner and the lessons he has learned, as well as how he is implementing these into his work now. We talk about why Goldcorp was successful and how he sees the future of the mining industry in the next decade.
- Replacing reserves that are being depleted is one of the greatest challenges in modern mining. Investors seek returns on capital, which leads to cost-cutting, but this is bad in the long term.
- Operations become more bureaucratic and structured by their very nature as they begin to scale. The challenge is to adapt to this through personal development as it occurs.
- Mining operations can create added value by de-risking development stage assets, as in the case of Gold Mining, benefitting investors and shareholders.
- Investment in the precious metals space will always reap richer rewards if it is spread across many disciplines. Early stage opportunities have the potential to deliver 10 - 20 fold increases in a capital base.

‘If you’re looking to invest in the precious metals space, you must diversify your portfolio'
