Michael S. "Mickey" Fulp

The Mercenary Geologist Michael S. “Mickey” Fulp is a Certified Professional Geologist with a B.Sc. Earth Sciences with honor from the University of Tulsa, and M.Sc. Geology from the University of New Mexico. Mickey has 35 years experience as an exploration geologist and analyst searching for economic deposits of base and precious metals, industrial minerals, coal, uranium, oil and gas, and water in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

Mickey worked for junior explorers, major mining companies, private companies, and investors as a consulting economic geologist for over 20 years, specializing in geological mapping, property evaluation, and business development. In addition to his professional credentials and experience, Mickey is high-altitude proficient and is bilingual in English and Spanish. From 2003 to 2006, he made four outcrop ore discoveries in Peru, Nevada, Chile, and British Columbia.

Mickey is well-known and highly respected throughout the mining and exploration community for his ongoing work as an analyst, writer, and speaker.

Mickey’s business and experience has three facets:

First and foremost, Mickey is a field geologist, mapper, and prospector who subscribes to the David Lowell School of “Boot Leather and Drilling”. He is a dedicated career professional who welcomes the challenge and reward of working in remote and primitive conditions. In his three decades of experience, Mickey has seen nearly every rock type on the planet and has experience in exploration and evaluation of a variety of commodities in diverse geological environments.

Secondly, Mickey is an exploration and mining analyst specializing in evaluation of projects, companies, and business development within the junior resource sector. The last 17 years of his career have been devoted to the venture capital business. During this time Mickey has developed a strong network of professional contacts that constitute a “who’s who” of the mineral exploration business, while also becoming an astute investor, economist, and evaluator of junior exploration and mining companies and their projects.

Thirdly, Mickey is a mentor to young geologists and students. His deep passion for exploration and mining and sense of responsibility to the professional community motivate Mickey to give back knowledge and communicate his experiences to those bright minds who are the future creators of new wealth on our Earth.

The Mercenary Geologist criteria to analyze a mining company are very strict and Mickey rejects more than twenty companies for every one he agrees to investigate further. The company must have a tightly held and efficient share structure, be led by trustworthy, experienced, and talented management and technical teams, and have a flagship property in favorable geological terrane. This project must be in a geopolitically stable and environmentally friendly area that is permissive to develop a profitable mine.

A cornerstone of Mickey’s investment criteria is to choose companies that have a strong chance of doubling in share price in 12 months or less. In addition, he thinks it is always best to sell one half of a position upon a double, reduce the cost basis to zero, and in turn invest the money into another stock that has a strong chance of doubling within a year. An investor can then play his remaining zero-cost position for the occasional five or ten bagger. This Mercenary philosophy is a nearly infallible way to make money in a bull or bear market.

The companies that Mickey covers may become a paid sponsor of his website, pay him consulting fees, and/or reimburse his travel expenses. He puts his Mercenary money where his mouth is. Mickey may buy in the open market and/or invest in private placements in those companies. Mickey’s work as an exploration and mining analyst is wholly transparent with respect to his financial involvement and he always discloses sponsorship, reimbursement of expenses, consulting fees, and personal investment in a company’s equities at the end of a report, commentary, or interview.
