“There are few events in my professional experience where decisive leadership has been coupled with a superior technical team. First Mining Finance, for me, was one of those rare opportunities. We have moved rapidly to secure multiple valuable assets. Our mission now is to apply maximum effort to advance the projects technically, environmentally, and socially, while continuing to scout the Americas for new opportunities.” - C. Osterman
