2012 --- Present
John Bryan became CEO of the largest secured creditor of the Camp Bird Mine in Ouray Colorado one year after Camp Bird Colorado Inc filed for Chapter 11. This gold mine was formerly managed and operated by Western Mining (NYSE:BHP) and Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD). Over 1.5 million ounces of gold has been mined and 14 miles of underground tunnels remain intact. Bryan turned around the case that was being badly managed and constructed an agreement with the DOJ and EPA that will allow full recovery of the value of the secured debt.
