10. Peter Marrone,CEO, Yamana Gold

2011 compensation: $12.4 million

Yamana Gold's CEO is a fixture on these Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives lists, popping up year-after-year as one of the country's best-compensated execs. But Peter Marrone is also like many other Canadian CEOs, in that the bulk of his compensation is not from his salary. Marrone earned only $1.29 million of his 2011 pay package as salary; the majority came in the form of a bonus ($4.31 million), company shares ($5.63 million) and pension credit ($1.09 million).
