Mike literally grew up in the mining business.
His fascination for minerals and wealth-building started when he was just a teenager — staking gold and silver properties with his father in Nevada’s legendary Carlin Trend.
Mike recalls, “One of the properties we were drilling returned multiple commercial results; share prices went through the roof, and I was instantly hooked!”
He went on to study geology at the University of Colorado, later graduating from San Diego State’s business school in 1992.
Mike is a highly sought-after contributor to the mining and metals sector, and, for decades, has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry.
When he’s not meeting with geologists and executives at far-off mining sites for the benefit of his readers and his own investing, you’ll find him at the various North American investment conferences rubbing elbows with the leading minds in natural resources, energy, rare coins, real estate, and technology.
An avid outdoorsman, Mike spends his leisure time hiking and biking the challenging mountainous terrain of the western United States and British Columbia.
