Taking Mining Public - with Mark Brennan

View descriptionShare

Today’s guest is Mark Brennan, CEO and Co-Chairman of Cerrado Gold, a privately-owned Toronto-based growing precious metals mining and exploration company, building a portfolio of assets in South America, including Argentina and Brazil.

The company is going public next week and Mark gives us an overview of mining in Brazil and Argentina, explaining more about Cerrado Gold’s recent acquisition and the future of the company going into this next decade.


  • Formulating the right team, and allowing each member to use their specific skills, has allowed Cerrado to laser-focus their efforts in South and Latin America, turning the operation into a highly specialised and talented concern.
  • Investment is as important as reinvestment. Cerrado have managed to strengthen their many operations through carefully reinvesting profits from one site to the next, allowing expansion in Brazil.
  • When you operate in Brazil, you must have the support of the local community. Perhaps more than any other area, without community support, mining becomes an impossibility.
  • The challenges of Argentina have mainly been COVID-related. Working hard and persevering where others may have failed, plus the specialist expertise of the team, have meant that even through these barriers, Cerrado have maintained success.


'We all try to find the best possible asset we can find'

'We have a producer that generates cash and drives exploration'

'We all have a great deal of experience in Latin America and South America'

'We started with a dream in 2017. We're now raising capital to go public in December'
