Graham "Sucker Punch" Harris - Old School Drama

Reports have come in of an altercation at the California Resource Investment Conference mining show in Indian Wells, with respected Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp taking a sucker punch during the proceedings.

And the alleged assailant? None other than Mr. Graham Harris.
Mr. Harris has "accomplished" several things. First he has demonstrated to his peers a grotesque lack of self control. Impulse and anger control issues of management should not be the concern of public shareholders. They are now.

Assuming Mr. Harris is charged with an offense he is automatically excluded from the United States on "moral terpetude" grounds, and it matters absolutely not if he is actually found guilty in a court of law.

Finally Mr. Harris has shown contempt to the point of challenging his many, MANY critics with physical violence. This observer believes there are many that would take the man up on that offer.
UPDATE February 24

The Northern Miner has picked up the story.

"The California Investment Conference put on by the Cambridge
House folks in Palm Springs had a moment of old-school drama, with
Redhill Resources chairman Graham Harris punching the Mercenary
Geologist newsletter writer Mickey Fulp in the face during the
conference’s morning session.

As Fulp bled heavily from a cut on his nose, Harris returned to
his Redhill booth before being taken away by police, though no
charges were reportedly filed at Fulp’s request. Fulp was later
photographed with a large bandage on his nose and an even bigger
smile on his face.

The dispute apparently stemmed from unsubstantiated
accusations by Harris that Fulp had been anonymously trashing
him online. The Redhill booth went unmanned for the rest of the
Artist rendition ONLY


UPDATE February 19

Further to this matter a poster on the Jeff Berwick, the Dollar Vigilante blog( ) posted the following ...

"I actually witnessed and broke up the first attack on Mickey on Saturday of the show. It was pretty crazy to see...especially considering the venue. The guy who carried out the attack claimed Mickey had said some negative things about his company on a blog...which Mickey said never occurred. In any event, it was an entertaining say the least."

UPDATE February 17

Despite many eager ears we have little more than speculation and innuendo to pass along. Apparently Mr. Harris attempted to run back to the Redhill Resources booth, after the sucker punch in front of many witnesses.

The sole response from Cambridge House, who is no doubt eager to bury this entire matter, is that a "disgruntled promoter" was involved.

Are we getting tired (yet) of taking the moral high road? Hell bloody no Citizens. Plenty of first stones left here to toss at Mr. Graham Harris for his lapse of reason. Has the man actually admitted to doing anything wrong OR apologized for making a public spectacle of himself to the man he attacked ... even as that man has elected NOT to persue criminal charges? Many might not have let this criminal act pass like Mr. Fulp.

Just another day at the office Mr. Graham Harris? Tsk Tsk indeed. Shameful.

Has Mr. Harris seen fit to resign from Cap-Ex Ventures and/or how long is this open flowing wound to Cap-Ex Ventures public shareholders going to continue? Thats' a leadership test and the main man needs to find the cajones to act pronto.

"Big Nose" George Parrot

George Parrott, also known as Big Nose George, George Manuse and George Warden, was a cattle rustler and train robber in the American Wild West in the late 19th century.

He is most famous for his skin being made into a pair of shoes after his execution.

In 1878, Parrott and his gang murdered two law enforcement officers during a botched train robbery.

Wyoming deputy sheriff Robert Widdowfield and Union Pacific detective Tip Vincent were killed as the gang was trying to escape.

Parrot was caught and after he tried to escape, a lynch mob hunted him down and strung him up themselves.

Parrot’s skull cap was sawed off and given to the doctor’s 15-year-old assistant. Throughout her life she used it as a pen holder, a doorstop and an ashtray. The doctor made a pair of shoes and a medical bag out of Parrot’s skin.
The death of Big Nose George faded into history until May 11, 1950, when construction workers unearthed a whiskey barrel filled with bones on Cedar Street in Rawlins. Inside the barrel was a skull with the top sawed off, a bottle of vegetable compound, and the shoes said to have been made from Parrott's thigh flesh.

Dr. Lillian Heath, then in her eighties, was contacted and her skull cap was sent to the scene. It was found to fit the skull in the barrel perfectly, and DNA testing later confirmed the remains were those of Big Nose George.
