Eric Snider comments: Colin Bird and his Lion Mining Finance and various associated subsidiaries spPublished by MAC on 2001-05-01
Eric Snider comments: Colin Bird and his Lion Mining Finance and various associated subsidiaries specialize in the financing of mining ventures in just about every corner of the world. Precious metals, including gold, platinum and palladium seem to be favoured. Earlier this year he was a key figure in setting up Jubilee Platinum which has set staked out platinum interests in the Bushveld (Anglo American Platinum) in South Africa, as well as Madagascar, Sierra Leone and Ethiopia and north of Thunder Bay in Ontario where North American Palladium has one of the most productive palladium mines in the world. Bird also has his finger in the pie in a gold project of Freegold Ventures near the Kinross Fort Knox mine at Fairbanks in Alaska. Freegold is listed on the Toronto Exchange.
The Tiger Resources - Leeward Capital consortium located gold-platinum occurences on their concession southwest of Indawgyi Lake near the border of Kachin State and Sagaing division in 97-98 but apparently without exploitable potential.
