Rob McEwen is a mining legend. Rob is Chairman and Chief Owner of McEwen Mining Inc. He's perhaps best known as the founder and former Chairman/CEO of Goldcorp, one of the largest gold producers in the world. Starting in 1993, and over the course of 8 years, he consolidated five companies into Goldcorp. During his thirteen year tenure as CEO, its market capitalization grew from $50 million to over $8 billion, with its share price growing at a 31% compounded annual rate. While others would be content to rest upon their laurels, he then founded McEwen Mining, which is a producing miner that's engaged in extensive exploration and development of new and existing deposits. So much for retirement. His legendary status continues to grow.
