Creating a leading multi-asset gold company
Led by Ross Beaty as Chairman and Christian Milau as CEO, Equinox Gold will be a well-financed gold mining company with a near-term strategy to become a profitable, multi-asset, low-cost gold producer. Watch Ross Beaty's BNN interview on November 1, 2017, discussing the transaction.
Equinox Gold will have a multi-million-ounce gold resource base, near-term and growing gold production from two past-producing gold mines in Brazil and California, an impressive growth profile with a pipeline of gold and copper projects in Ecuador, Chile, Mexico and Canada, and an operational gold processing facility in Peru. Both the Aurizona Gold Mine in Brazil and the Castle Mountain Gold Mine in California have the potential to be long-life gold mines in well-established mining jurisdictions, with first gold pour from Aurizona targeted for year-end 2018 and significant production potential from Castle Mountain.
The Company’s earlier-stage projects provide a development pipeline with both jurisdictional and mineral diversity. In addition, the Company is reviewing options to monetize a portfolio of non-core assets, further bolstering the Company’s strong treasury and funding exploration and development at its flagship properties.
Equinox Gold will be led by an experienced executive team that has advanced multiple projects from exploration through construction and into production. The Company’s Board of Directors will include some of the industry’s most respected technical and business leaders, with Ross Beaty as Chairman. The Company’s executive and directors have personally invested in the company and hold approximately 12% of the shares, ensuring their interests are aligned with investors.
