Ned Goodman was honored on October 26 by the IIAC

Asante Gold Corp (CVE:ASE, CNSX:ASE) said one of Canada’s most successful entrepreneurs and its chairman had been inducted into the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame last week.

Ned Goodman was honored on October 26 by the IIAC for his contributions to Canada’s mining, real estate and financial services industries, in a career spanning more than 50 years.

He has been instrumental in helping to build numerous successful mining companies, including International Corona,  and Kinross Gold, the firm said.

He also had a major hand in the formation and growth of investment companies Beutel, Goodman & Company Ltd. and Dundee Corporation.

He is a founder and deputy chairman of the Canadian Securities Exchange and is known for his major philanthropic support of higher education, culture and health care.

“The board and our shareholders congratulate Mr. Goodman on his award, and look forward to continue working with and learning from one of Canada’s sharpest and most successful entrepreneurs," said Douglas MacQuarrie, Asante president and chief executive.

Last week, the group revealed it wants to aggressively continue exploring its Keyhole option property in Ghana, as it released final assays.

These come from the six-hole, 790-metre second phase diamond drilling program.

Highlights included 15.9 g/t (grams per ton) gold over 0.88 metres (m), 7.05 g/t gold over 1m and 4.36 g/t  over 1m.
