Director, President & CEO

Brian Fagan has over 35-years of hands-on experience in all aspects of the mineral exploration sector and related securities business. Moving from Rhode Island, USA, to Vancouver, BC, with his wife and three young children in the early seventies, he immediately went to work in the securities business as a desk trader. In a very short-time-span, he advanced from desk trader, to floor trader, to Registered Representative, to Managing Director of a local Vancouver based Brokerage Firm. While still Registered, he brought his first mineral exploration company public on the former Vancouver Stock Exchange (VSE). Shortly after that, he resigned from all his security company registrations and positions to concentrate on forming and managing public mineral exploration companies. During the following years he formed, financed, and managed three additional exploration companies through the facilities of the former VSE. Publicly and privately, he has operated and/or managed successful mineral property acquisition/exploration programs in Canada, United States, Mexico, and Argentina. In 1995, Brian launched The Fagan Report (TFR) a subscription based newsletter concentrating on Canadian listed resource companies. During the fifteen-year continuous publication of The Fagan Report, he was a sought-after speaker and commentator at major resource investment conferences, radio, TV, and financial publications. Brian currently publishes a complimentary online Digest, An International Forum for Stock Speculators.
