The Green Miner

Contributor since: 10 Sep 2012

Dave Zgodzinski

Dave Zgodzinski is the editor of the Green Miner newsletter and thegreenminer.com web site.  The Green Miner is dedicated to searching out valuable investments in renewable energy.

Dave was a petroleum geologist for a number of years in western Canada, working on oil and gas wells from southern Saskatchewan to the Arctic islands. After leaving the high pressure of the oil patch, he moved on to the quiet, laid back life of a stockbroker. After surviving the crash of '87 and the slowdown that followed, Dave moved on from selling intangibles to tangibles.  He worked as an equipment broker selling used machinery of all types. 

In 1995 Dave latched on to the early trend of the Internet. He began yet another career as a freelance journalist writing about business and investing on the Internet. He wrote regular columns for Internet World magazine, The Globe and Mail, Montreal Gazette, Silicon Investor and CNBC.com.

Following the tech bubble crash of 2000, Dave began working for the Kitco.com web site – the most popular gold web site in the world. The price of gold was $250 when Dave began selling advertising on the Kitco.com web site. Dave developed two sister sites for Kitco – Kitcosilver.com and Kitcometals.com. He left the Kitco sites in 2011 to concentrate on the Green Miner.
