Clive Johnson

President, CEO & Director

Clive Johnson is a founding shareholder of B2Gold Corp. and has served as President, CEO and Director since its inception in November 2006, and leads the Company’s executive team.

From Northeast Russia to South Africa, Clive, through his leadership roles in B2Gold and predecessor company, Bema Gold Corporation (“Bema Gold”), has been involved in exploration and gold mining in 12 different countries.

Clive is recognized for combining his entrepreneurial business approach to the mining industry with one of the industry’s most experienced and successful teams of geologists and engineers. He is also well known for his commitment to corporate social responsibility. Based on his personal and professional credo of fairness, respect, transparency and accountability, Clive leads B2Gold’s commitment to improve the lives of all the Company’s employees and local communities worldwide.

Prior to B2Gold, Clive was a founder of Vancouver-based Bema Gold. He was appointed as CEO after the company was created through an amalgamation of three Bema group companies in 1988. Clive was a driving force behind Bema Gold’s dramatic transformation from a junior exploration company to an international intermediate gold producer. Bema Gold was acquired by Kinross Gold Corporation for C$3.5 billion in 2007.

Founded as a private company by the former management and technical teams of Bema Gold, B2Gold went public in December 2007 as a junior exploration company. Since then, B2Gold has grown into a low-cost international senior gold producer.

Clive is a past recipient of both the Viola MacMillan Developer’s Award from the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada and the Pacific Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Mining & Metals, and most recently honored as Kitco Mining's CEO of the Year (Mining Category) for 2020.
