I have no formal training in economics or trading, but do posses and BSc and MSc in geology and currently am working on my PhD, also in that field.

The aim of this blog is to reflect on the news and science regarding companies in these areas and there mineral deposits. Please see the main blog at where articles are posted usually a few days before they appear on Have a pleasant read!
