precious metals—just when prices are rising for those metals
NEW YORK, NY & VANCOUVER, BC – May 15, 2017 – Stock-Sector.com, an online
source of news about promising medical, technology and energy companies, and CEOCFO
Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and
companies, today released an interview with Jim MacKenzie, CEO of Viscount Mining Corp
(TSXV: VML, OTCQB:VLMGF).
In the interview and in a previous interview with CEOCFO, MacKenzie explained that Viscount
Mining is a new kind of mining company—and that it’s ideally positioned to cash in on rising
prices for silver and other precious metals.
“I’ve always been an entrepreneur and I saw an opportunity to run a mining company that was
different from what was happening in mining sector,” MacKenzie told Stock-Sector and
The idea behind Viscount Mining was to be a “project generator,” said MacKenzie. He would
find and acquire promising properties, then bring in a partner or buyer to do the actual mining.
“We are like the bird dog for major mining companies,” MacKenzie explained.
From years of investing in the mining industry, MacKenzie knew “many fabulous geologists,” he
said. So when he put out the word that Viscount was looking for projects, those contacts came
through with a major opportunity in Nevada, a property called Cherry Creek that had been a top-
producing area for silver and other metals, with 20 previously producing mines. Many mining
companies were anxious to get their hands on it, but they never succeeded because the property
was split up among five families who were often at odds with each other. “They were like the
Hatfields and McCoys,” said MacKenzie.
Over a period of 13 months, MacKenzie met with all the families. “I shared with them my vision
of what we were trying to do with Viscount Mining,” he said. Eventually, they were
convinced—and Viscount was able to buy the whole property.
Now, test drillings, geological mapping, soil and rock chip geochemical sampling, drill logs, and
assays confirm that it’s laden with high-quality silver ore, along with gold, tungsten, and other
But MacKenzie didn’t stop with Cherry Creek. He’s also acquired a property known as Silver
Cliff in Colorado, which has some of the highest assays of silver ore ever reported in North
America. “We have two spectacular properties,” MacKenzie told Stock-Sector and CEOCFO.
And he’s also put together a top team of geologists and executives with a combined 250 years
experience in the industry, including the former Executive Chairman of Great Panther Silver. “He
was so excited by what Viscount had to offer, he jumped at the chance to be our chairman,” says
Viscount is also entering the business as a propitious time, when most analysts are predicting a
dramatic rise in the demand—and prices—for silver. “We’re seeing both a huge demand for
silver in cell phones and other electronics, and the lack of new silver discoveries being made,”
MacKenzie says that Viscount has many loyal shareholders and investors, who will reap rewards
in the form of dividends when Viscount sells its properties or partners with major mining
companies. They should also expect a climb in share prices since, “our market cap is insignificant
compared to the potential of both our properties,” said MacKenzie.
