Creating a leading gold company
Led by Ross Beaty as Chairman, Equinox Gold has the Properties, the People and the Plan to achieve its vision of becoming a mid-tier gold producer.
50 mines built and 500 years of cumulative experience
Equinox Gold’s executive team and directors have the technical, construction, operations and financial experience to advance the company’s assets and build a leading mid-tier gold producer. The team has decades of experience but has retained an entrepreneurial spirit, allowing the Company to remain nimble and creative in its approach to evaluating and executing on new opportunities.
Committed to upholding the highest industry standards
Equinox Gold’s success as a company, in both the public markets and the communities in which it operates, is contingent on its reputation for sound corporate governance and ethical business practices. Equinox Gold’s leadership team has built a strong reputation in the industry, managing both its companies and projects to the highest standards with a clear commitment to governance, responsible mining and transparent communication.
STRONG FINANCIAL POSITION
Substantial treasury, fully funded to achieve Aurizona production
Equinox Gold is fully funded to advance its Aurizona Gold Mine to production with a strong treasury, a credit facility to fund Aurizona construction, monetization potential from investments, and access to a US$200 million “development and acquisition facility” to fund future growth.
STRONG SHAREHOLDER BASE
Strategic shareholders that support the long-term plan
Equinox Gold has a broad shareholder base with strategic long-term shareholders and a good mix of institutional, retail and high-net-worth investors. Equinox Gold’s executives and directors have also personally invested and hold more than 13% of the Company, ensuring the interest of investors and Equinox Gold’s leadership team are aligned.
STRONG PLATFORM FOR GROWTH
Increasing production and exploration upside
Equinox Gold has the potential to produce more than 500,000 ounces of gold per year from its existing asset base, with first production from Aurizona expected by the end of Q1-2019 and Phase 1 production at Castle Mountain targeted for H1-2020. Concurrent with construction, the Company is exploring and optimizing all of its projects with the objective of extending the mine life and potentially increasing production.
