This episode features the first of a two-part conversation with strategist, lawyer and author Bill Gallagher on the topic of Canada's Indigenous People and their land rights, and how that relates to resource development in the country. Based in Waterloo, Ont., Bill is the author of two popular books on the topic: the recently published "Resource Reckoning: a Strategist's Guide from A to Z" and the 2012 milestone "Resource Rulers: Fortune and Folly on Canada's Road to Resources." To buy the books and for more information, visit www.billgallagher.ca and find him on Twitter at @ResourceRulers. In this episode Bill touches on a wide range of topics that include: the legal framework underpinning native land rights in Canada; the 279-decision "winning streak" of aboriginal groups in Canadian courts with respect to land rights cases; psychological pitfalls to avoid at the negotiating table; native land rights in Labrador, Quebec and British Columbia; and tales from his days as an advisor to Inco as it negotiated with Innu and Inuit groups near its Voisey's Bay nickel project in Labrador. In a promoted-content Mining Minute segment, Max Sali, CEO of newly listed Barrian Mining (TSXV: BARI), talks about his firm's Sleeper silver-gold project in New Mexico, which complements the firm's flagship Bolo gold asset in Nevada.
