Noble Drakoln is long Robinhood and not for the reason you might think. True it’s a hot market trading app that has millions of clients and makes its living selling their data to high frequency traders. It’s doing quite well and according to Noble has leveled the playing field and enabled the public to turn the tables on the pros, but that’s only half the story. They’re really a crypto play as they are one of the largest holders of the infamous Elon Musk promoted Dogecoin. And they’re all set to become a major crypto trading platform that could easily surpass Coinbase. And that could really result in huge profits to early Robinhood investors, and perhaps that’s why the price has rebounded and gone higher than the IPO price. Perhaps another Facebook in the making.

Robert Stevens and I discuss the mining industry, and set out to address some of the challenges and changes within the field in today’s podcast. The mining industry is experiencing quite a boom, and the demand for metals only increases and will continue to do so in the following years. This is especially significant in consideration of transitioning to a more electrified economy. 


Robert talks about how he got into geology, and the underlying entrepreneurialism in the field that sheds light on the scope of the industry. It is imperative to look at the bigger picture in mining to account for each facet. Mining is essentially the ultimate treasure hunt and mastery of the earth’s resources, but it requires that we understand what it means to bring mines online. 

Robert offers valuable insight into the implications of drilling, and the necessity to create a working understanding of why we drill, because results are affected by these reasons. Finally, we get into how mining is a different industry today than it was historically. We can now recover metals in greater quantities and processing methods operate with increased efficiency. 

The regulatory requirements in place that allow for more environmental preservation contribute to these shifts in mining practices, which need to be acknowledged by regulators and governments. Anyone interested in exploring this topic more can check out Robert’s book, Mineral Exploration and Mining Essentials, and participate in his online courses that provide an overview of the industry.
