My son, Jeff, is currently attending the University of Texas at El Paso, UTEP pursing a degree in geology with a soon to follow Masters in Geophysics. This is a personal story for me. I have taken Jeff with me to several investment conferences,San FranciscoandNew York. He has had the opportunity to visit with some of the most respected names in the business and I am proud he has chosen this profession.
Jeff forwarded this article to me last night, “Professor Hopes to Transform Geology With Gift”, a really cool story, which we would like to share with you.
…”A degree in geology isn’t usually thought of as a money maker. However, Philip Goodell, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Texas at El Paso, is out to change that mindset and prove the field’s possibilities.
“After leaving El Paso to attend Yale University and Harvard University, Goodell eventually returned in 1975 to teach at UTEP. Over the years, his expertise in the field has allowed him to advise a number of companies, such as Exxon Minerals, Chevron Minerals Corp., Energy Metals Inc., and Tigris Uranium in their endeavors.
“’Goodell isn’t your typical academician,’ said William Sheriff, a UTEP geology alumnus who is currently chairman of four mining companies – Golden Predator Corp., Silver Predator Corp., Tigris Uranium Corp., and Wolfpack Gold Corp. ‘There’s usually a real detachment between the academic world and the entrepreneurial world, but Phil has a vision to bridge that.’”
