Burning the Candle at Both Ends for My Fellow Fools
I've been a little quiet here on the blogs lately, and I wanted to give you an update on what's been keeping me so busy. On Tuesday, I went to NYC to join Fortuna Silver in celebrating their listing on the NYSE. I had an amazing experience, not just for the thrill of entering the exchange building and walking past the trading floor, but for the pleasure of meeting Fortuna CEO Jorge Ganoza, their VP of Exploration Thomas Vehrs, and multiple members of their board of directors. The more I learn about this company, the more excited I get. I am fascinated to see where their next growth platform will emerge from as they continue the ramp-up at San Jose.
In the elevator on the way out, I met Jeffrey Christian, managing director for CPM Group. I'm sometimes terrible with faces, so I didn't recognize him until he handed me his card. He was kind enough to relate to me the interesting history behind the bull statue in NYC.
Now for the really exciting news, and please join me in thanking The Motley Fool for making this possible. The Motley Fool has kindly offered to send me to the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference next week. It has been long overdue for me to attend one of these major events, but to date I have not had the opportunity. This one would not have been possible without the help of TMF. I have already lined up multiple interview with mining company CEOs that I know you will find valuable, and I encourage you all to stay tuned (here at my blog, through my article list, and by following me on Twitter) for my multiple write-ups that will come out of this experience. I don't want to spoil the surprise by revealing which interviews I have lined up, but please feel free to cast your vote for which companies you're most interested in getting the inside scoop on, and I will make every effort to visit their booth at the event and speak with senior management or their representatives.
This site has the list of companies that will have booths at the event, plus the agenda for speakers, presentations, etc. I have already filled out my itinerary, but feel free to let me know if there is something specific you would like me to attend / see, and I can try to work it in.:

Some additional site visits are also in the works, and I will fill you in on details as they emerge.
I'm excited to bring you another year of comprehensive research into the precious metals industry, and I consider myself very fortunate to have such a vibrant online community with which to share my findings.
