The team behind the significant Bruce Channel gold discovery in Red Lake will receive the Bill Dennis award at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s annual convention next month. Mining Journal caught up with seasoned executive Stephen Roman, who co-chaired the exploration company behind the find, to talk about wedging, what happens when two trends merge and the industry’s lack of retail investment.
