RIP Craig Brown – as ECR shares slip the 1 key man risk in a small cap

By Tom Winnifrith | Monday 1 November 2021

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

We have sad news today from ECR Minerals (ECR), the sudden death at the weekend of its CEO Craig Brown. I have known Craig for almost two decades since his days floating what was Kryso Resources, now China NonFerrous Gold.  When I was at a low point Craig was not – like most folks – someone who joined in the kicking. That marked him as a decent guy in my book and I returned the favour when he fell out with China NonFerrous.  Naturally, my thoughts at a time like this are with his daughters and other family members especially as  Craig was only 51.
