As a Senior Editor at Banyan Hill Publishing, Matt Badiali utilizes not just his skills as an investor in natural resources, but his experience working as a geologist, hydrologist, agricultural expert, and oil industry consultant. This enables him to gather the best information available on companies dealing with exploration in natural resources. He has traveled extensively around the world to diverse locations that include Hong Kong, Turkey, Haiti, Iraq, Mexico, New Guinea, and Switzerland in order to see for himself the progress being made in mining and drilling operations. To stay current on the latest developments in the field, he makes it a point to talk with experts in precious metals, investors, and CEO’s. Matt’s educational experience includes degrees from Penn State University and Florida Atlantic University in Earth Sciences and Geology. He has also been a geology instructor at the University of North Carolina, and Duke University. Matt has spoken to major companies like Exxon Mobil and Anadarko, and shared his data at geologic conferences. Matt has worked on drilling rigs, owned oil wells, and engaged in exploration operations in old mines. He believes this “hands on approach” is essential to giving his readers the information necessary for profitable investing.
Matt signed on with Banyan Hill last March to be their expert in natural resources, writing for Real World Strategist. Prior to this, he spent eleven years working for Stansberry Research. He helped consumers with investment advice with the monthly advisory, THE STANSBERRY RESEARCH RESOURCE REPORT. He has developed relationships with industry leaders like Ross Beaty, chairman of Pan American Silver, oilman T.Boone Pickens, and the CEO of Sprott U.S.Holdings, Rick Rule. Matt has been featured on news programs like Fox News and recently he has written about the falloff of zinc production in the world, with the news that zinc minds in Australia, Canada, and Ireland have closed down completely. In September he spoke at the Total Wealth Symposium which was held in Hollywood, Florida. In the past decade, Matt has become one of the first people that drilling and mining companies come to when they are exploring new ideas and innovations.
