Mining’s Bootstrapper

chester millar[edit, biiwii comment: in looking at Corex Gold’s stock price reaction after this interview, I am left with several questions and they are not very pleasant ones]

I found this interview with Chester Millar at CEO.CA by way of Bob at 321gold.  What a wonderful interview with a delightful man, who was the founder of Glamis Gold, bought by Goldcorp for $8.6b back in the heady days of the previous gold mining cycle.

Mining’s Bootstrapper

“I am set for life seventeen times and I’m not doing this for the money. I do it because it’s a mental challenge and I like it. Some people play golf, and I start mines.”

There are so many grifters, bullshit artists and know-it-alls professing to be gold mining experts. This guy has it in his veins (pun sort of intended) and was a purveyor of low cost heap leaching to boot.  I love real industry people who do real work, free of the abstractions of the financial sphere.
