Named for the job

Ram Gold & Exploration Inc ( is a small and utterly failed junior explorer. It wouldn't even get a mention on these pages under normal circumstances, but this week's NR has a small wrinkly detail worth noting. In its NR, Ram told of some regulatory change of status...again, zero interest...but then when reading the thing (reading such minutae = wonk) the contact details of the company caught this humble scribe's eye:
Ram Gold & Exploration, Inc.
Michael Di Pumpo
Public Relations
514 586-3799

Di Pumpo! Is that real? Man, now there's a person who could have become a taxi driver or a banking executive or an ice-cream salesman or whatever else, but should have stayed well clear of investment relations in junior mining companies. What a giveaway!
