“I have known Brent Cook since 1997 when we both worked for Rick Rule's Global Resource Investments. I was a stockbroker and Brent was our analyst. One of the most valuable things I had ever done was to sit in Brent's office for hours while he explained the process of mineral exploration and analyzed exploration projects. Over the years Brent made numerous very good calls and helped me to help my clients make money by speculating on the correct companies at the right time. Brent also saved me, and my clients, precious capital by keeping us out of the wrong companies. "
