"Best mining bios ever...ever"

So I get this mail from reader "J", an age-old sparring partner and IKN friend, with that "Best mining bios ever...ever" you see above in the title line of the mail. The mail's contents, nothing except this link to a company called Mingo Gold which says it has exploration properties (mostly gold) in Senegal.

I'll let you discover all the jewels available to the investigator of junior mining companies but I can't resist offering up just one sample, the biography of company president and CEO, Timothy Mingo;
