Welcome to Perspectives, a new periodic feature in which our Executive Chairman, Peter Marrone, will share his thoughts on issues, challenges, and opportunities in the gold mining sector. While the perspectives will sometimes be contrarian, they will always be forthright and refreshing on everything from technology in mining, to how to approach community relations, to why gold equities are a more attractive investment today including royalty streaming plays. We hope that these perspectives will engage you and provide insights into the various covered topics.
