Judges have awarded the 2016 Mining Journal Lifetime Achievement Award to leading industry financial and corporate figure, Ned Goodman. Jonathan Goodman accepted the award on his father’s behalf at the gala dinner ending the 2016 Mines and Money London event last Thursday.
Event co-host Amanda Van Dyk, a mining equity specialist with Peterhouse Asset Management and a member of the 11-member Mines and Money advisory board, said the vote for Goodman was unanimous due to his stellar achievements.
“This year’s winner has made transformative and enduring contributions to Canada’s minerals industry and capital markets as a company-builder, merchant banker and investment advisor during a dynamic career spanning almost half a century,” she said.
“He applied his geological training and business acumen to help build several successful mining companies – notably International Corona and Kinross Gold – and nurtured many other mineral producing companies through astute and timely investments.
“In addition to being an outstanding member of the philanthropic community, he is considered one of the leading architects of Canada’s investment management industry.”
Goodman helped found the first exploration flow-through partnership, CMP Group, which has raised almost $5 billion since the 1980s to help mining and petroleum companies explore and develop projects.
