Eric Coffin
HRA (Hard Rock Analyst) Advisories
Prior to starting the HRA (Hard Rock Analyst) publications twelve years ago, David and Eric were consultants to the mining sector. David attended the Haileybury School of Mines and has planned, directed and reported on scores of exploration programs, large and small. Eric attained a B.Comm in Corporate Finance before starting a consulting career, much of it directed to the mining sector and to advising small companies on structure and financing. This unmatched real world experience gives HRA's editors a uniquely powerful perspective on the sector, not to mention a wealth of contacts throughout the industry from the core shack to the boardroom. David logs literally hundreds of thousands of miles a year visiting projects world wide and Eric reviews hundreds of companies on an ongoing basis. They then distil all that information down to a short list of high potential companies they present to their subscribers. HRA publications received the Cambridge House award (a peer selected award) for Market Analysis for 2007. The HRA publications were also recently selected as the “successor” publication to Robert Bishop’s Gold Mining Stock Report upon his retirement from newsletter editing.

Labeled the Wall Street Whiz Kid, Grandich gained national notoriety by being among the very few who not only forecasted the 1987 stock market crash just weeks before it happened, but on the very next day he predicted that within a year the market would reach a new all-time high – which it did. Proving his 1987 forecast was no fluke, Mr. Grandich said in January 2000 that the year 2000 will go down as the year the great mega bull market of the 80s and 90s came to an end.
