The $520-million sale of Kaminak Gold Corp. marks yet another success for mining entrepreneur Eira Thomas, whose companies have been on a major winning streak of late.

“I’m really fortunate that I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in some terrific projects,” Kaminak’s chief executive said in an interview.

Ms. Thomas, 48, is known as the “Queen of Diamonds” because she discovered the Diavik diamond mine in the Northwest Territories in 1994. But her recent track record is just as notable.
