THE UNTOLD STORY W. ANTHONY MILEWSKI – EP. 34
Anthony Milewski, whose ties to Russia and his role as the former CEO of Cobalt 27 are part of a fascinating career. Success can bread envy and false narratives, especially in today’s media. So, naturally, we needed to interview him.
Anthony takes us from his early days growing up in a small town in eastern Washington to the beginnings of his legal and finance career in Russia. It was there that he gained exposure to international mining and energy deals. He’s since led some remarkable deals and now has his eyes set on nickel as the chairman of Conic Metals.
