Mark Morabito’s two decades of experience in mining and markets have taught him an important lesson, one that he is eager to share: “It’s not about the risk — it’s about the opportunity.”
Mark has been the founder and principal driving force behind a number of other resource development companies. At Alderon Iron Ore, his skill as a negotiator enabled the company to secure a US $400 million agreement with HBIS Group, at the time China’s largest steel producer entering their first investment transaction outside of China in the company’s history.
In addition, Mark led two mining companies from initial start-up on the TSX Venture Exchange to full NYSE listings. In resource development ventures across the hemisphere, Mark has an exceptional record of panning through the rubble of risk to extract the gold of opportunity.

Mark’s career in business and capital markets spans over 20 years, with a strong focus on junior mining and extensive experience in merchant banking and corporate development. Over the course of his career, Mark has raised over US $1 billion.
