From the Publisher
From the windswept Labrador coast, where the massive nickel deposit
was discovered, to the boardrooms of Singapore, Toronto, and
Vancouver where the giant poker game for Diamond Fields was played
out, the story behind Voisey''s Bay has enormous economic
significance for Canada and international financial markets.
One of the most intriguing elements was the takeover battle for
Diamond Fields that pitted the conservative management team at the
world''s largest nickel company, Inco Ltd., against free-wheeling
stock promoter Robert Friedland.
Also playing key roles in the race for Voisey''s Bay were managers
from the Bronfman-controlled Edper group, prominent Wall Street and
Bay Street investment houses, and leading mutual funds.
