In this episode, we chat to Mark Learmonth, CEO, and Director of Caledonia Mining who is a profitable cash-generative gold producer with a strong growth profile, with their primary asset, the Blanket Mine in Zimbabwe.
Mark has a finance and investment background. He joined the company back in 2008 and talks about his journey with Caledonia Mining, what they have been upto including their central shaft project and their Bilboes project, and why Zimbabwe is a great place to invest in mining.
‘I learned the importance of really rigorous cash flow management and paying close attention to investment programs. ´
‘There’s a lot of gold in Zimbabwe, the country has never been properly explored.’
‘The mine has been operating for nearly 100 years. Over that time a sophisticated infrastructure had developed, which we have enhanced.’
