About Us

THE STORY OF BIG ROCK

Rob and Brian met in field mapping class at Winona State University where they completed their B.S. in Geology. After extensive independent work in the mineral exploration industry all across North America, they soon seized the chance to join forces and start the vision of what is now, Big Rock Exploration.

In addition to Big Rock, Brian and Rob have launched a portfolio of synergistic ventures in strategic real estate investment, gold exploration, and industrial metal recycling technology. Driven to innovate, these serial entrepreneurs are only getting started.
