Haywood Securities Managing Director of Investment Banking Kevin Campbell interviewed Lukas Lundin for a pre-PDAC message from Lundin, the billionaire Swede mining and oil tycoon whose Lundin Gold and the Ecuadorian Government are co-sponsoring the event.

Lundin says the world is growing at 2-3% per year and still needs metals. And he sees great opportunity in this down-cycle to acquire assets, which makes him want to attend the convention.

“You don’t want to go there when everybody else wants to be there, it’s better to go there when people are a bit worried.”

In next Tuesday’s print edition of the Financial Post read an exclusive interview with Lundin and me. In fact expect a barrage of media from the tycoon over the coming week.

Great score by Market One Minute to get Lukas on film.
