Rye Patch Gold

Situation: Rye Patch Gold had turned the corner from development to production and was ready for investor relations help. Getting the Florida Canyon mine up and running was no easy task and senior management looked to Ira and the early team to build an IR department.

Results: We created an IR strategy, built several shareholder initiatives and executed social media campaigns across multiple channels, creating engagement with shareholders. Institutionally, we organized multiple shareholder site visits on the sell side and buy side and helped grow analyst coverage to five from scratch. These efforts ultimately helped grow Rye Patch’s share price, and the company was successfully acquired at a premium by Alio Gold and subsequently by Argonaut Gold.
