Initially enrolled as directors, the above three former Barrick executives are now proactive participants in NuLegacy. These gentlemen helped guide Barrick Gold’s most dramatic growth period in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s through its acquisition of Sutton Resources, Arequipa Resources, Homestake Mining, Lac Minerals and Placer-Dome, as well as the discovery of 50 million ounces of gold, and the building of four of the world’s largest gold mines.

These individuals, under Ed Cope’s direct supervision, contributed to finding that 50 million ounces of gold in the Carlin and Cortez gold trends of Nevada on behalf of Barrick over the past 15 years.
