Sander Grieve writes in Canadian Mining Journal on the challenges and opportunities that have arisen for miners and their counsel during the pandemic. Sander looks at:
- The novel—mining companies engaging in health and safety updates, tracking disclosure of the impact of COVID-19.
- New opportunities—new enthusiasm in gold and silver, equity is back as financings (and even IPOs) are out of hibernation.
- New challenges—discipline continues to be the watchword of the COVID-19 era, how mining companies have been seeking to qualify for relief by traditional lenders and working through emerging rules for new government support programs.
