Mr. Vig has over 30 years of business experience during which time he has helped to launch five business ventures in private industry. He has been involved in several publicly traded companies since 2010. From 2011 to 2016 Mr. Vig served as President of Musgrove Minerals, an Idaho focused gold and copper mining exploration company, and from 2013 to 2016, he was the Chairman and CEO of Continental Precious Minerals, a TSX senior board exploration company with a focus on advancing one of the largest uranium projects in the world, located in Sweden.
A true entrepreneur with the ability to identify early trends, in 2018, Mr. Vig became the CEO of Lead Ventures and led its re-structuring by acquiring Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CURA) which raised $520 million, making it the largest Canadian cannabis financing in history.
Also in 2018, Mr. Vig was invited to take the helm of Rockbridge Resources, a failed Oil and Gas venture, which he re structured by acquiring Harvest Health & Recreation (HARV) that closed a $300 million financing – making it the third largest cannabis financing of 2018.
Believing that the mining industry, and gold in particular, was about to enter into the next commodities super cycle, he has turned his attention to his latest venture, Blue Lagoon Resources, a gold focused company that holds both, the highly sought after environmental permit, as well as a mining permit.
In November 2017, he was invited to the Canadian Senate to receive the Senate 150th Anniversary Medal – which were awarded to top Canadians actively involved in their communities who, through generosity, dedication and hard work, make their hometowns and communities, a better place to live.
