The ascent of an investment banker in the gold mining industry : Peter Voldness. Over the subsequent 20+ years, Culver and St-Michel continued to collaborate on numerous metals and mining projects, reviewing many dozens of opportunities and successfully launching eight projects. Of all these projects, they focused most closely on two projects – Samalayuca Cobre in Northern Chihuahua, a copper property which they acquired and is now the primary project of VVC Exploration Corporation (VVC:TSX.V) and Tres Oros. St-Michel first explored Tres Oros, a gold property southeast of Mazatlan, Mexico, in 2015.
Peter Voldness is the Chairman of the Board and CEO of VTM Capital Management, Inc. and the Managing Partner of Novis Partners, LLC Capital Markets Advisory. Mr. Voldness was the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Emergent Financial Group, Inc., an investment banking firm, since 1999. Prior to the founding of Emergent, Mr. Voldness was employed in various positions in the investment banking industry going back to 1978.
In an uncertain economy with growing political risk, Analog combines highly attractive investment attributes, years of experience in the finance sector, and a high growth technology product. The company’s portfolio currently includes two, near-production gold properties in Mexico – Tres Oros and San Fernando – and the technology platform Prospector, an AI-powered search engine designed for the mining sector.
“The addition of Prospector’s platform and highly talented team marks a pivotal moment for our company,” said Analog Gold CEO Jim Culver. “We believe the mining market remains undervalued and the combination of this technology with our portfolio of precious metals projects positions us to grow in new ways.” The Analog Gold team cited Prospector’s ability to streamline dense information into easy-to-use dashboards as a key feature for users. “Time is the scarcest of all resources and the Prospector platform takes due diligence in mining from months to days and from days to minutes” said Peter Voldness, Analog Gold Executive Vice President of Corporate Finance.
Prospector is an AI-enabled technology platform built to modernize the way investors and researchers search for and access information about mining. Founded in 2020 by global mining expert Emily King, Prospector created the industry’s first searchable digital database with an easily navigable interface that allows anyone to tap into information about the $144B mining industry. Prospector is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Analog Gold, a mining investment company.
