Gold Express Mines was in urgent need of boosting the company’s profile to combat negative perceptions within and towards the mining industry while retaining and generating new investor capital amidst economic headwinds. Investor interest was threatened by the Fed’s tightening of monetary policy to dampen inflation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and other global issues, which dramatically strengthened the dollar and caused a steep fall in gold prices. Additionally, as the industry felt increased pressure from national government and electric vehicle production initiatives, the company struggled with executing growth plans due to lack of awareness around industry-wide issues such as regulatory roadblocks preventing timely mining permits, necessary support for greater efficiency and sustainability in mining, and the dwindling talent pool.
