Risk? Bring it on, Canadian miners say - The Globe and Mail

Special to The Globe and Mail

Published Thursday, Nov. 22 2012

There are few business sectors where Canada can claim global dominance, but as a centre for mining development, it is an industry leader....No other place has the same concentration and depth of services and financial market sophistication to support mining finance and development.

How does Canada do this? According to Kevan Cowan, president of TSX Markets, Canadians have a long history of participating in early-stage mining investments and a “whole ecosystem” has developed to support the industry.

“We have a tremendous network of industry players. Our legal services are the best expertise in this sector worldwide, together with a huge pool of geologists, engineers and mining entrepreneurs, as well as sophisticated capital markets for mining finance. We are a world ahead of our competitors.”

Let strategic assets go forth and prosper
Feb. 16, 2011 | The Globe and Mail| Editorial TMX Group Inc. is
in a sense a strategic asset for Canada, as some people are saying, but
that is all the more reason why it should be free to expand its scope
and compete beyond Canada by merging with London Stock Exchange Group
PLC, giving Canadian issuers and investors wider opportunities. The
adjective “strategic” should not be a synonym for “to be
protected.”....Good strategy is outward-looking, not merely defensive.
TMX should be entitled to pursue its hypothesis that a transatlantic
alliance would make it, more than before, a strategic asset for
Canadians.

Commodities Report: Mining Start-Ups Look for Northern Exposure - WSJ.com
NOVEMBER 30, 2010 | | Phred Dvorak. The Toronto bourse
estimates Canada has snagged more than a third of the world's equity
financing by mining companies during the past 10 years, and 55% in the
first three-quarters of this year.

The flow of mining deals comes amid a boom in commodities prices that
has pushed gold and copper to records and silver to near 30-year highs.
