Vancouver: Mines in Development – Options in Times of Fog

June 6, 2017 all-day
Segal Graduate School of Business - Simon Fraser University
Room: SG 2800 (CN Strategy Room) - 500 Granville Street

CIM MES Vancouver is pleased to present:

Mauro Chiesa

Independent Advisor


who will deliver a presentation on:

Mines in Development: Options in Times of “Fog”


The industry is in a fog, and the grades are getting thinner and locations are often more remote. The presentation looks at re-assessing all project parameters and at possibly asking the public sector to absorb some of the risks. The potential is awesome: for the private sector it is getting a project together in times of cost-dormancy and with all situations accounted for; for the public sector its maybe some energy subsidies and jobs in times of fog, and dividends in times of plenty.


Biography: A seasoned professional with 35 years of financing experience in Ottawa, NYC, Washington, DC and Vancouver, active in procuring, arranging and structuring project-related financing in the energy generation, resource extraction and transport infrastructure sectors. Experience with financial instruments includes project-risk and corporate-risk debt and equity financing, strategic debt and equity financings and publicly traded bond financing; several years were spent exclusively with joint-venture financings, where no two deals were alike. Mr. Chiesa possesses an MBA and a BA from UBC and is tri-lingual.
