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 by the end of 2018 with a substantial cash treasury, a credit facility to fund Aurizona construction, monetization potential from investments and non-core assets, 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 400,000 ounces of gold per year from its existing asset base, with first gold pour at Aurizona targeted for year-end 2018 and commissioning at Castle Mountain targeted for year-end 2019. Concurrent with construction, the Company is exploring at both projects with the objective of extending the mine life and potentially increasing production from both projects.
