A2A with "Mercenary Geologist" Mickey Fulp

The Mercenary Geologist
36

Mickey Fulp is well-known and highly respected throughout the mining and exploration community for his ongoing work as an analyst, writer and speaker. I figured that he would be an excellent A2A guest and he didn't disappoint. Please take the time to give this a listen.

Over the course of this discussion, Mickey addresses many issues and topics, among them:

  • The ratio of gold to silver in the earth's crust
  • The average cost of production for gold miners
  • Why most miners failed to maximize profits between 2002 and 2012
  • The best places to mine and pan for gold
  • Some exploration companies that he follows closely
  • Rare earth exploration and mining

He also gives the most unique answer yet when faced with the traditional final question of "the final four". So, please take the time to listen to this recording. You'll be glad you did. It's full of helpful information.

my first first

first

I did buy some American Silver Eagles today at SDbullion.com. They have them in ANY QUANTITY for spot plus $2.25.......with $7.77 shipping on any order.........a great deal........especially great since you can get that price on as few as one coin or as many as you want, without having to order 500 to get the great price. I had never used them before today (usually use Provident), but thought since they had such a great deal that I would give them a shot.

Mickey wrong on one issue - first gold in US

In no way does my knowledge of mining compare with Mickey Fulp. But he was wrong on the first gold discovery in the US. It was not in South Carolina but Cabarrus County North Carolina at a site now called the Reed Gold Mine. Just happens to be the county I spent my first 18 years in. And the story is an interesting one you can find at the link below.

In some remote sites around the area you can still see the evidence of the diggings that occurred in the 1800s. NC was the top gold producing state in the US until 1849.

Turd, Got my $'s Worth

Thanks for asking about Long Canyon... I was fortunate to invest in Fronteer Gold (got bought out by NEM). I'm currently in Pilot Gold (PLG.TO), which is run by the same guy. Very informative!

Just for fun...

Anybody want to look up the mass of the Earth and calculate how many tons of silver are in it at 50 parts per billion? I'll get to it later if nobody does. Edit: answer is 1.194 times ten to the 14th kilograms. That's 1.175 times ten to the 11 tons. Or 117,500,000,000 tons.
