Making educated investment decisions has always been difficult for investors of the mining industry because the terms and amount of information disclosed by mining companies is overwhelming and difficult to understand.


As a result this leaves many investors struggling to find information on mining companies that is presented in a format non-geologist’s can understand.

Whether they find information they can understand or not doesn’t really matter though because the appeal of life changing returns is too great to avoid the sector completely. This leaves many investors with no choice but to invest on “hot tips” or invest without knowing exactly what to look for and where. If any of this sounds familiar don’t be discouraged. That is exactly why we took the time and effort to put information an investor needs about mining stocks in one central location.

Before we get started we want you to understand that we know how you feel. It wasn’t that long ago, maybe 5 or 6 years now that we started to follow metal prices, the mining industry and mining stocks closely. Previous to that we were active investors in other sectors but we were definitely “greenhorns” when it came to mining stocks. On the advice of a famous quote by Warren Buffet that read “risk comes from not knowing what you are doing” we decided to stay away because we didn’t understand mining.

Because of our delay we didn’t invest at the all time lows like many of the so called “gold bugs”, but in early 2006 when gold was still trading around $600/oz our research still suggested metal prices were still going higher and we couldn’t ignore the sector anymore. We had to learn mining quickly and we didn’t have the time or the money to get a geology degree.

Next post from our e-book Mining Stocks Investor Guide will be on Thursday.
