Collin is a private investor with a highly successful investment background in the mining and energy sectors. He comes from a family with deep ties to mining and many past successes including co-founding AuEx Ventures, the company responsible for discovering the Long Canyon deposit, which was ultimately acquired by Newmont Mining for $2.2B. Collin is well connected in the capital markets and boasts an extensive background in project finance & corporate development. Collin founded Palisade Capital in early 2013 with the goal of investing in and backing undervalued junior mining companies. He is also the host of Palisade Radio, the fastest growing radio show in junior mining.
Cejay previously served as a senior member of one of the most successful merchant banks in junior resources. The merchant bank was backed by a $100 million fund, which invested in both private and public companies in all stages of the development cycle. Concurrently, Cejay researched and wrote for one of the largest resource newsletters in North America, with over 10,000 subscribers. His in-depth analysis and prudent selection helped subscribers beat the relevant benchmark since 2010. Cejay holds a MBA in Global Asset Wealth Management from Simon Fraser University, is a CFA charterholder, and is a member of both the Calgary and Vancouver CFA Society.
An electrical engineer by trade, Ralph is an expert in the design and integration of communication systems. As a highly sought after contractor, he worked on a number of high profile projects for the aerospace industry and the military, which included designing the radio systems used in the B-1 bomber. In the late 1990s, Ralph became an active participant in the mining sector, shrewdly anticipating the massive coming bull market in gold and other precious metals. In 2003, he co-founded AuEx Ventures, Inc., a Nevada gold exploration company that merged with Fronteer Development in 2009, and was subsequently bought by Newmont Mining (NEM: NYSE) for $2.3B. Ralph was also the founder of Concentric Energy, a development stage uranium mining company that was sold to Uranium Energy Corp (UEC: NYSE) in late 2011, a transaction that was successfully consummated in spite of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Ralph brings over 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur, investor and business development professional, principally in real estate and the mining and junior resource sector.
In 2013, Sean teamed up with Collin to found Palisade Capital. Having previously served as the V.P. of a major consulting firm in Toronto, Sean brings a deep reservoir of knowledge and expertise in the investment banking, private equity and digital advertising spaces. Now residing in the Bahamas, Sean has built a global network of contacts and developed relationships with analysts, fund managers, retail brokers, corporate executives and high net worth individuals. His foresight in late 2013 to focus on the devalued market in metals and mining has positioned Palisade for explosive growth in the years to come. Of Sean’s many achievements, however, being a Dad is his greatest accolade.
