Randall Reneau holds a BA in Geology from Central Washington University.  He spent nearly twenty years in uranium exploration, followed by three years in Liberia, West Africa exploring for diamonds and gold. After the outbreak of civil war in Liberia, Randall Reneau managed a gold exploration project in Mali, West Africa. He later managed silver and copper exploration projects in Mexico. In 2004, he co-founded Uranium Energy Corporation. In 2006, he co-founded Strategic American Oil (now Duma Energy) Corporation. Randall Reneau is the author of Deadly Lode and Diamond Fields.  His third book, Ruby Silver, is due out in early 2014.

According to the book description of Deadly Lode, “Geologist Trace Brandon's serendipitous discovery of the long forgotten Sullivan Mine comes with more than high grade uranium and gold ore. When ex-con and penny mining stock promoter, Cyrus"The Virus" McSweeny, finds out about Brandon's new mining claims, he formulates an underhanded plan to gain an interest in the mine. To further complicate matters, one of Brandon's shareholders, Richard Rosenburg, is into a New Orleans crime family for a cool million. And they want Rosy's shares in Brandon's new company; Montana Creek Mining. As Brandon begins to drill out the rich orebody, his shareholders start dying. And not from natural causes. The exotic nature of the murders catches the attention of FBI Special Agent Beau Monroe. But it's the world class uranium grades that catch Hong Kong based Lei Chang's eye. Chang wants the uranium reserves for his Chinese backed mining company. And he doesn't care how he gets them. Brandon is forced to forge some rather unorthodox alliances to maintain control of the Sullivan Mine, and to stay alive.”

 

According to the book description of Diamond Fields, “Geologist Trace Brandon has traded mining in Washington State for the sunshine and warm waters of the Cayman Islands. For the past year, his only encounters with crooks have been social, and no one has tried to kill him. But a phone call from Cyrus “the Virus” McSweeny lures Trace into a dangerous new mining project. This time the query is West African alluvial diamonds: rare and extremely valuable…green diamonds. In the steamy backwater city of Monrovia, Trace and his partner, Will Coffee, team up with expat mining engineer Gordon Watson and an Idaho potato-farmer-turned-diamond-miner known as the “Mormon.” Together, they will make an extraordinary find—what miners call a “First Water Stone.” When rebels attempt a coup, Trace and his partners are caught up in violence and treachery that threaten to engulf them all.”
