Mining Investment Secrets for an Economic Downturn

Relentless, fanatical, and urgent actions are required to survive markets like this. This is as true for investors as it is for the companies that they are invested in. Be relentless and fanatical in your research, diligence, and holding the management team accountable. We are joined by three junior market CEOs at different phases of their evolution, who discuss how to evaluate jurisdictional risk, greenwashing, raising capital, and astute allocation of that money in a tight market and how newsflow and why staying in control of your workflow is important.

Tim Harrison, Managing Director of Ionic Rare Earths Ltd. (ASX: IXR)
Andrew McIlwain, Managing Director of Investigator Resources (ASX: IVR)
