Daniel Earle serves as a Vice President and Director at TD Securities Inc., which is the investment banking subsidiary of TD Bank Group, one of the largest financial service providers in North America. Daniel has been with the firm since 2007, serving as an equity research analyst and specifically covering the precious metals sector. As an equity analyst, he provides in-depth analysis and prescient recommendations on precious metals equities, the sector at large, and the precious metals themselves. During his term, he has enjoyed the distinction of being a top-ranked analyst in industry surveys by Brendan Wood and StarMine.
Prior to joining TD Securities, Daniel worked as a senior executive for several Canadian and U.S. public mineral and mining exploration companies active in Asia and Africa. From 2003 to 2005, he founded and then served as the President and COO of Roxy Resources Inc. At Roxy, he raised funds for project evaluation, acquisition and exploration programs in China and gained due diligence experience, including overseeing title audits, environmental reviews and reserve audits. During this time, he completed due diligence on over 180 precious and base metals projects and negotiated the acquisition of two, one from a private mining company and the other from a government exploration bureau.
Following his tenure at Roxy Resources, Daniel served as the President and COO of Xtra Gold Resources Corporation in Toronto from 2005 to 2006. At Xtra Gold, he expanded his industry experience and negotiated and oversaw a third-party contract alluvial mining operation, which helped fund and support exploration efforts. In addition, he interfaced with government environmental and permitting authorities to obtain permits in support of mining exploration that ultimately led to a high-grade gold discovery after work that included till sampling, prospecting and reconnaissance, line-cutting and trenching within a large, greenfield land package of over 300 square kilometers.
Prior to TD Securities, Daniel served as Vice President of Fraser MacKenzie Inc., a brokerage firm that, before closing, helped raise funds for many successful junior resource companies.
