Despite a tough market for precious metal exploration companies, Canadian Gold interim president and CEO Ian Ball said he has a plan to attract investors.

On Friday correspondent Paul Harris hosted Kitco Roundtable with Ball and Rob McEwen, chairman and chief owner of McEwen Mining.

Canadian Gold is a Toronto-based mineral exploration and development company whose objective is to expand the high-grade gold resource at the past producing Tartan Mine, located in Flin Flon, Manitoba. The company holds a 100% interest in greenfields exploration properties in Ontario and Quebec adjacent to some of Canada's largest gold mines and development projects, specifically, the Canadian Malartic Mine (QC), the Hemlo Mine (ON) and Hammond Reef Project (ON). The company is 37.6 % owned by Rob McEwen.

Ian Ball was the former CEO and president of Abitibi Royalties. In 2021 Abitibi Royalties was acquired by Gold Royalty.
