Lexam VG Gold

Supporting research in olfaction

Rob McEwen has spent his career in two industries — investments and mining. First he spent 18 years in the financial services industry in research, sales, and portfolio management primarily focused on investments in gold. Since 1990 he has been actively involved in the gold mining industry, recently adding silver and copper to his area of focus. He is the founder of Goldcorp Inc., where he took the company from a market capitalization of $50 million to over $8 billion.

Mr. McEwen is currently Chairman and Chief Owner of two companies: McEwen Mining Inc. and Lexam VG Gold. These companies are exploring for gold, silver, copper, and oil and gas in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Argentina.

In 2000, Business Week named Goldcorp one of 50 most innovative companies on the web worldwide. Mr. McEwen’s awards include Ernst & Young’s Ontario Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Energy), Northern Miners’ Mining Man of the Year and the Outstanding Achievement Award for Philanthropy from the Canada Museum Association. He has been honored with an Honorary Doctor of Law Degree from York University, was named Canada’s Most Innovative CEO in 2006 by Canadian Business Magazine, and received the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian award. In 2013, Rob was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Rob and his wife, Cheryl, are strong supporters of education, in particular leadership development and health care. They opened the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine in 2006 at University Health Network in Toronto (Canada’s largest research hospital complex). Over the past nine years, their charitable donations have exceeded $50 million.
