Jekyll Island Series – Ken Berry: America’s Next Producing Gold Mine
Ken is CEO Northern Vertex Mining (TSX.V: NEE) and he discusses how they are nearing production with their mine in Arizona. They brought on board Greenstone Resources, Sprott Lending, and Cat Financing to take their project to the next level. They have six weeks left before they begin pouring gold.
He says they have a tremendous amount of exploration potential and they have recently brought on board two geologists. They currently expect a ten-year mine life. They intend to demonstrate the exploration upside to their property. The two advising geologists for the company are Perry Durning, and Bud Hillemeyer both are accomplished geologists with multi-million-ounce discoveries to their names. They are looking at this as an opportunity to add ounces, and it is not out of the question that they could double the potential of the property. They look forward to being the next U.S. producer.
Ken Berry, B.Comm, Chairman, and CEO is co-founder and has played an instrumental role in acquiring the Moss project as well as helping to raise more than $98 million to advance the Company’s now 100% owned Moss Mine Gold-Silver project in Western Arizona from the exploration stage to final feasibility. Mr. Berry brings over 20 years of senior level experience in capital markets and mine exploration and development. Among his accomplishments, as a co-founder and current Chairman of Kootenay Silver Inc., over the past two years, Mr. Berry has helped guide Kootenay through a significant transitional period that included the strategic acquisition of Canadian based Northair Silver Corp. and a carried interest to production option agreement with Pan American Silver Corporation.
