Goldcorp CEO ‘actively looking’ for assets

Goldcorp Inc.’s chief executive said his company is actively investigating assets and could make an acquisition if it so desired.

“We are always actively looking at assets and opportunities,” Goldcorp CEO Chuck Jeannes said in an interview. “We are always looking around the world for assets.”

Mr. Jeannes said the Vancouver-based gold company favored more stable parts of the world and dismissed “extremely high” political risk jurisdictions such as Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
