Rockhound Exploration – Past, Present & Future


* Please take a moment to view our "Projects" Page of this Website to view an updated list of our current Rockhound Projects.


For over 40 years, I have been instrumental in the discovery and development of numerous oil and gas properties in Texas. I was inspired early on to get into "the business" by my father, grandfather, and other relatives, who have been very successful in oil and gas for generations.

My first successes involved numerous wells and new field discoveries with Bright and Schiff, in the 70`s and 80`s. Thereafter, for approximately 10 years I independently developed many successful oil and gas projects and prospects with prudent operators, while officing in the Meadows Building in Dallas, Texas.

During this period, I began working with Rick Harding and Harding Company. We began drilling a few prospects and wells a year and progressed to significant participation in the Barnett Shale, in North Texas. Our relationship of 13+ years developed into a very successful partnership. As the Vice President of Exploration and Acquisitions at Harding Company, I provided creative marketing strategies, new opportunities and play expansions, quality projects, and designed the Team Concept. We built a strong team of experts and sold ourselves to Exxon Mobil, who we brought into the Barnett Shale as our partner. This project sold to Chesapeake. Several of our wells are the best producing wells in the Barnett Shale!

For the past few years, I have been focusing on my lifelong personal and professional goal of building our family-operated company - Rockhound Exploration, Inc. with my sons. We have located and sold many quality projects and continue to do so.

My expertise has been in expanding plays in Texas - "Thinking Out of the Box" - with strong backup archive data, geology, and detailed evaluation of many areas. This approach has led to opening up multiple profitable exploration and development plays. In addition to projects we have originated and generated, we have been able to identify quality projects that other geologists and operators have generated but may have had difficulty marketing and/or locating a buyer.  We enhance these quality projects by adding our geological archive data and expertise to achieve success and a sale.  We also market minerals, royalties and non-op Working Interest opportunities.
