Fifteen companies later, Ross Beaty plans to go out with a bang

On getting to a mining industry with better social acceptance, Ross Beaty said problems with tailings are holding the industry back. Ross Beaty, chairman and founder of Equinox Gold, spoke to Kitco News earlier this month at the Metal Investors Forum in Vancouver. "Tailings is the one Achille's heel of the mining industry, because one tailings spill happens once a year somewhere in the world, and it's awful because it's all preventable," said Beaty.
