In today’s episode we chat to Jody Kuzenko, President & CEO of Torex Gold Resources, an intermediate gold producer based in Canada, engaged in the exploration, development and operation of its 100%-owned Morelos Gold Property in Mexico

Jody has recently been appointed President/CEO and I wanted her to share her journey and give some advice to inspiring mining professionals who want to emulate her success. We also talk about Torex Gold, what they have achieved, their relationship with the community, their innovations as a company, as well as digging deep into the Muckahi mining system being developed; one that can potentially revolutionise underground mining.


  • Mining should be used as a platform from which to make a positive change to society. We have a marvellous chance to make significant environmental and social impact.
  • The most effective way of building one’s career should always be to do the best possible job in the role you are in. If this is the case, then advancement will naturally come.
  • By pulling back and gaining clarity on the business problem we are trying to solve, we can allow the technical pieces to fall into place, saving time on finding solutions for problems that do not necessarily exist.
  • When our mines succeed, our communities succeed. By embracing and nurturing this social endorsement, we are empowered exponentially, building and reinforcing relationships across the board.
