Erdene Resource Development Corp.(ERD) beat out four other high-profile contenders to win the “Best Asia-Pacific Exploration Mining Company of the Year” at the Mines & Money Conference Hong Kong on April 5. This marked the 10th year this prestigious prize has been awarded to a “noteworthy exploration success in the past year in either greenfield or brownfield discoveries.” The award is conferred by a panel of 16 judges drawn from the senior ranks of industry leaders, including APAC, Ballingal, CIBC, ANZ, Jinchuan, Lionsgate, Lion Selection, and CEF, among others. The judges were impressed by ERD’s stunning success and dogged persistence in exploring what appears to be one of the richest gold deposits in the region. ERD CEO Peter Akerley accepted the award and afterward was interviewed on CNBC’s Squawk Box Asia program and by other international media.
