A Historical Review and Case Study of Four Successful Mining Companies from Start Up Through Production

November 2, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

Fraser Auditorium, Laurentian University

Free Admission

Join us as Terry presents a historical review and comparison of the outstanding advancement of each of these companies from their transformative acquisitions, through exploration, permitting, development, and production and how these events and the capital markets affected funding, share price and values.



Terry MacGibbon has had and continues to enjoy a remarkable career in the mining industry. He is a registered professional geologist and a certified director, with nearly 50 years of experience in the mining industry. The first 30 years of Terry’s career was spent exploring with Inco Limited and culminated in Terry being responsible for directing Inco’s worldwide exploration activities. The second part of Terry’s career involved the identification and acquisition of non-core, mineral assets with great exploration and production potential from major mining companies and bringing those assets into production in start-up companies that initially had few employees and no funds.


Terry has enjoyed great success in founding four start-up companies; FNX Mining, Torex Gold Resources, TMAC Resources and INV Metals, and bringing them from transformative acquisitions to very successful mining companies with, in aggregate, many thousands of employees and multi-billion-dollar market caps.
