Massif Capital, in their Q1 2021 investor letter, mentioned Equinox Gold Corp. (NYSE: EQX) and shared their insights on the company. Equinox Gold Corp. is a Vancouver, Canada-based mining company that currently has a $2.6 billion market capitalization. Since the beginning of the year, EQX delivered a -13.30% return, while its 12-month gains are up by 21.15%. As of April 15, 2021, the stock closed at $8.92 per share.

Here is what Massif Capital has to say about Equinox Gold Corp. in their Q1 2021 investor letter:

"Equinox Gold remains one of our higher conviction positions. Not only does the management team fill us with confidence because of their continuously thoughtful moves to build the business, but within the gold industry, we struggle to find any firm with comparable growth potential from existing assets. The transactions the firm has undertaken over the last three years to build the business have all came at the market and with either significant shovel-ready brownfield expansion potential, most of which management is undertaking, or greenfield opportunities. Between now and 2025, Equinox will more than double its current annual gold production."
