Donald G. Moore
CEO & Director
Mr. Moore’s connection with the mining industry began over thirty years ago while working summers in the Dickinson Mine (Goldcorp) in Red Lake, Ontario during high school and university. Following graduation from University of Waterloo, Mr. Moore joined the Mining brokerage firm Doherty Roadhouse & McQuaig (which eventually became Midland Walwyn) in 1968, where the foundation of his experience in the Mining investment industry evolved. In 1976 he accepted the challenge of reviving the economy of the mining town of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, where, in his role of Director of Economic Development, he conceptualized, raised funds for and had implemented a number of Geo-scientific programs that became the standard for Ontario. In 1981 he continued to diversify his knowledge and involvement in the mining industry as Director and Executive Vice President of International Corona in Vancouver, B.C. where he worked with David Bell in the early stages of the development of Ontario’s prolific Hemlo gold deposits. He then launched a career as an independent consultant to the mining and mining investment industry. His expertise now includes organizing, restructuring, promoting and negotiating complex acquisitions and joint ventures for junior and senior mining companies, based in North America and in Europe.
