The bison is an iconic symbol of strength and resilience. He thrives as part of a cohesive community.
Copper, atomic element 29 of the periodic table, is one of a handful of transition metals – highly

unearth the precious elements of success.

Why an actual bison?

Meet Cupernicus

Cupernicus, our wise and learned copper bison, is something of a prophet.  Having traveled far and wide, he has witnessed his share of boom and bust cycles and proven his resilience.  His experience has taught him to believe firmly in the wisdom of the herd.

He is an accomplished, unbiased listener who opens lines of communication and builds community.  He is persistent and determined, flexible and adaptable, and believes in telling-it-like-it-is.  His strength and presence are reassuring, acting as a coach and mentor to others, blending seamlessly into groups when there is a need. He shares practical, structured approaches and sound guidance for navigating uncharted territory and identifying deep veins of possibility.

From the great gold rush of the past to today’s capital market opportunities, prosperity lies in mining all the elements of success.  An experienced guide makes all the difference.

Cupernicus is our Chief Appreciation Officer and a national treasure. His wit and sage advice are invaluable! We hope you find him as inspirational as we do.
