Grizzle had the pleasure of sitting down with one of the original titans of the gold mining industry, Sean Boyd, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Agnico Eagle.

Agnico is one of the best run gold mining companies in the world, consistently delivering superior shareholder return versus its peers, the market and the gold price.

Sean has been with the company since 1985 and was appointed CEO in 1998 after serving as CFO from 1990 to 1998. He appeared on the list of The Best-Performing CEOs in the World in the Harvard Business Review in 2010, 2016 and 2017.

In our in-depth interview, Sean provided sage insights about building and running one of the most successful gold miners in the world.

He defines the winning DNA of the best-performing gold mining company over the last quarter-century: a laser focus on shareholder return and taking calculated risks with the drill bit.

Sean also outlines the state of the current bull market in gold and how well the gold mining industry is positioned in the current backdrop.

Gold remains under-owned and underappreciated, with debts rising around the world and unprecedented massive government stimulus.

The tailwinds for the gold mining industry remain very strong.
