Orchestrating the world’s mining industry
“If you want to be world class in the mining industry you have to be global,” affirmed Mark Bristow, a statement which rings true when examining many of Canada’s most successful mining companies. Five of the 13 Canada-based mining companies to make the 2020 TSX30 operate 100% of their mines abroad, and six of the remaining eight earn a large percentage of their revenue from foreign operations. Proximity to Toronto’s financial ecosystem, short flights to New York and London, a favorable time zone to conduct business throughout the Americas, Europe and Africa, a long-standing mining tradition, and the presence of engineering houses, consultancies and technology companies, make Toronto a natural hub for the decision makers who orchestrate global mining.
