McEwen Mining (NYSE: MUX) (TSX: MUX) chair and chief owner Rob McEwen is a guest on a recent episode of the Gamechangers LIVE podcast series. McEwen Mining is an asset-rich, diversified gold and silver producer in the Americas with a large exposure to copper. During the interview, McEwen shared with host Sergio Tigera about how he landed in the gold industry, noting that his father introduced him to the “role of gold as a store of wealth” when he was a teenager, teaching his son that gold would play a significant role in financial portfolios in the future as currencies were being debased by governments issuing fiat currency and incurring unsustainable levels of debt. Gamechangers LIVE is a series of interviews that spotlights individuals who are gamechangers in their fields. Featured guests share their journeys, mindsets, struggles and successes in an effort to inspire and inform listeners. “Over the years, I was fortunate to meet a number of individuals who were serial discoverers of large mineral deposits,” said McEwen Mining chair and chief owner Rob McEwen during the interview. “It was their record of discoveries that led me to believe there were many more discoveries still to be made and inspired me to jump out of the investment industry and into the mining industry to see if I could also climb up into that jet stream. . . . I came into the mining industry as an owner and CEO, looked around and had a lot of questions about why things were done a certain way. . . . Most of the people in the mining industry have degrees in geology and mining engineering. I did not. I came from the investment industry, so my perspective was different. I found myself questioning some of the fundamental assumptions of the mining industry and seeing opportunities that were not apparent to many in the industry. Our Goldcorp Challenge in year 2000 broke many of the practices of mining and was a pioneer in online incentivized crowd sourcing.”
