Mr Fipke has been profiled on TV by Scientific American for his pioneering and proven successful prospecting techniques. He has been actively exploring Yemen since 1996 and is aggressively pursuing his prospect of developing a large scale gold mine with Cheetah Ventures.

Jade Mining In British Columbia, Canada

Jade West is the world's largest producer and exporter of nephrite Jade, operating three mines located in Northern British Columbia, 100 miles east of the Alaskan Border. During a short summer mining season, when the area is free from snow, Jade West annually mines 100 tons of jade for export to China. Jade West is also the exclusive supplier of the newly discovered POLAR JADE, described by FRED WARD in the Lapidary Journal, November 1998, as, "the newest, brightest, most translucent, greenest, hardest nephrite yet discovered."
