My phone rang this morning from a fellow I’ve had many Sixteen to One related conversations but never met. My annual message to shareholders triggered his call. Our lengthy talk pleased both of us. If you haven’t read the April 22, 2017 letter (mailed May 15th), you can find it On the FORUM Topic: Correspondence from the President of OAU. Mining life is good. It can and will get better and surpass great in the days ahead of us.
After this phone conversation as I was rethinking each other’s words, it seemed appropriate to critic the past. With a 164 year old past it could take hours even for me. How trying it could be for those without my background! I looked to the FORUM a place for real history and saw a very important topic without an entry in seven and a half years. I scrolled to the first entry by gfxgold in 2002, reading forward in time.

The Two-headed Front again arises from the ash of nothingness, the Phoenix of California gold miners on 09/05/2009. For those who wrote under this topic, your thought and words are the clackers in the bells of liberty. “For the times they are a-changin’.” Happy birthday to Bob Dylan born today, May 24, 1941. If you are new to the FORUM or haven’t read this topic since 2009, and have a future interest in gold mining, go to the first entry and read forward in time.

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.


Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.


Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.


Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.


The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

It's an old story, when governments require more money as a result of fiscal mismanagement(of course they'll call it other things) just take it from the ones that have it and the heck with Accounting 101.

MEXICO CITY - Mexico's Congress is considering a 4 percent tax on mining output as part of a fiscal reform package meant to boost government revenues during a steep recession.

We all need to take this whole thing to another level. Here we are preaching to the choir on this web-site. Let's put our heads together using technology and the certain current awareness and under-current dissatisfaction with the the non-freedom movement.

Please blog this on other sites, copy to MySpace, Twitter, FaceBook, and all the rest.

I don't think people are even aware of history anymore, let alone the real-time supressive crap that is stiffling this potential and our collective future.

The Dark Side Of California, Anti-Mining.

California was once a proud producer of gold. San Francisco was built from the gold that came from the placer deposits and hard rock mines of the Mother Lode all up and down Highway 49.

When California should be a thriving gold producer again with its price at a all-time high of $1060.00, excessive environmental controls, well above world and Canadian standards, restrain the owners of prospective gold properties from seeking, what used to be the "American Dream."

Instead the government in Sacramento shows absoltely no respect for what gold mining used to represent in job security for Californians. Millions of ounces of gold have been taken from streambeds throughout the state and from its deep mines. As early as 1775 along the Colorado River early Spanish explorers first discovered placer gold. Some of the richest placers were in the Columbia Basin-Jamestown Sonora District which have produced 5.9 million ounces of gold or 183 tons. Locally owned businesses and prospectors poured all this money back into the State economy. Sure, the placers have been greatly depleted but the discovery from further exploration will produce great quantities of the metal from California's yet to be discovered hard rock mines.

Mike had a plan but we had to spend our time and money to defend ourselves from outrageous claims with all the obstreperous chatter and negative publicity that followed along with egregious court decisions. Want to find out about the legal system today? One only has to google Martin Armstrong to gets his perspective.

More spectacular gold production came from the the Grass Valley-Nevada City District in Nevada County which produced 10.4 million ounces of gold or 323 tons, plus 2.2 million ounces or 68.4 tons of placer gold.

Today with enormous amounts of gold to be mined and yet found, the State representatives continue to act like morons by sactioning crippling attacks on gold property owners with no moral justification along with exhibiting their narrow-minded self interests yet to be determined. A group of appointed State employees make up rules just so they interpret them the way they want to bleed property owners. The Water Board's demand for money from a historical gold producer who contributed to California's rich history and supported its past healthy economy is just abrasively nonsensical and just plain silly.

California is financially sinking into a black hole with no hopes on the horizon. One hope could be revitalizing mining and putting folks back to work. Instead of supporting mining the State prefers to handicap miners with their rules and regulations.

Our neighbor to the north, Canada, prides itself on supporting mining and the many jobs that it creates for their citizens. Quebec is the best place in the world for mine owners and workers and YES, the miners safeguard Mother Nature. The Quebec miners and their families laugh and shake their heads when the topic of California mining comes up.

Canada actually has tax incentives in place to encourage investment for exploration and mineral production. The Provincial governemnts even lend money to explorers. In Newfoundland and Labrador they have a Junior Exploration Assistance Program. Mountain Lake Resources was recently given $100,000 to assist it in locating mineral resources. This is just one tiny example of government support.

The fact of the matter for me is that the State will be destroyed by people who think THEIR answer for direction is the only way. What a bunch of knot-heads!

Prediction: California will be the first State in the Union to declare bankruptcy. When this happens, State appointed Water Board members won't have their overpaid jobs anymore and will be on the corner selling apples with the miners that they permanently put out of work. I wouldn't want to be them when the cement sidewalk turf wars begin.

All assets are being targeted by the State and the Federal governments because these people are financial failures at managing the general affairs of their constituents.

Gerald Celente stated this year that America's second revolution has already started, public protests are just the beginning, he says.

I recently read that ammunition sales have been brisk and that there is a shortage of available supplies. I wonder what's on the mind of the buyers?

Focus.

The purpose isn't to "get permission"....the government answers to us, unless we drop the ball and forget why we're free.

No more time to ask permission from the seated idiots. It's time to act, not re-act.

If you want right some one in Sacramento, write the governor he does have more respect for the need of the economics of gold production to help turn this economy around.

Assembly Person Noreen Evans is the co Author of Sb670, the no dredging law. She is another person in the State Legislature who has very little compassion for miners rights, nor shows much respect for the will of her constituency. She needs to be recalled.

Just finished sending Assembly Member Noreen Evans from the 7th District my feeling concerning the Water Board's illegal attempt at trying to put us all out of business.

All interested parties need to e-mail their Sacramento representatives. The next step should be to march on the State Capitol, get the local news crews out there and have either Jason or Mike explain the facts of life concerning arsenic in Kanaka Creek.

I have just forwarded the Mountain Messenger article to State Senator Patricia Wiggins representing my District in hopes of opening some eyes in the State Senate as to the childish behavior and incompetence of the Central Valley Water District Agency.

More should chime in with their State representatives.

Bluejay, in response to your suggestion below:

September 8, 2009

Dear Dr. Tomas Chaize

A gentleman interested in international gold mining recently presented you to me. I contact you to introduce the gold producing company in California, which I have held the office of President for over twenty years.

Due to some unusual interferences and very poor production in 2007, our performance requires and will improve with an infusion of working capital. China seems to have an awakening to the future value of gold and seems to have the dollars to consider investing in gold mining. (Americans with large amounts of dollars seem to ignore gold as a valuable asset).

Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc is the oldest American gold mining corporation still operating. It has much undeveloped property and a strong record of proven production. It has sound plans to develop its mines beyond the current activity, especially as gold hovers around the exchange rate of $1000 for one ounce of gold.

Securing working capital is my highest priority. You are invited to examine the company for the possibility of introducing this rare opportunity to take part in the on going development of one of the world’s most under achieving gold districts. The Company realizes that potential investors may have varying reasons for investing. We are creative and are willing to adjust the return of capital and profit to suit the investor.

Please contact me so I know you received this invitation. Your questions will receive a quick reply.

Michael M. Miller
President and Director

Below is an excerpt from a Tanzanian Royalty(TRE-ASE) report further down:

Here's a name of a Chinese company that could have an interest in joining with us in the search for more prized high grade gold discoveries, Beijing Songshanheli Mining Investment Company.

"In his capacity as the most senior political officer of Tanzanian Royalty, Mr. Kahama was responsible for introducing the corporation to The People's Republic of China. The company’s Mining Option and Royalty Agreement with the Beijing Songshanheli Mining Investment Company signed in February 2009 was greatly a product of his efforts."

There are hundreds upon hundreds of creeks and other waterways clearly present on the many topographical maps of California. It certainly makes one wonder why the State jackasses require so much from us when there is no change in the composition of running water in Kanaka Creek from one boundry of our property/claim lines to the next.

America is waking up to corrupt and/or silly ways of administering the people's will by their elected officials, officials that are soon to be out of work and on food stamps.

The following are some independent thoughts from a Texan who has clear sight as events unfold before his very eyes. If anyone doesn't believe that Texas is a growing hot spot for resistance as our rights get trampled by politicians they just have to tune in to Alex Jones from Austin or Charley Jones from Dallas to see that these guys mean business.

Mrsoul, your perspective from abroad [Switzerland?] seems to be the preferred one according to those on this forum, and I have $10K that will wager Obama will not last beyond 4 years, if that. His approval rating has dropped from 65% to 45% for a reason, and from my perspective it is really about public distrust of his administration's all out progressive power grab for the transforming of America through an orchestrated economic destruction by the the elite who control the radical left.

And yes, the Bushs' were grass snakes as well. Poppa Bush's father, Preston, was a German banker who helped fund fascist Hitler into power after the orchestrated Weimer Republic hyperinflation of 1921-1923 as paper money became totally worthless....ring any bells? Nothing really changes as power, envy and greed turn the cyclical wheels of time. Few live long enough to experience previous money clensings, and that is precisely why they can reoccur.

By the way, Van Jones, one of Obama's first appointed and closest czars, has just last night resigned his Green Czar position after it was exopsed that he is a self espoused communist and signed on as a "9-11 truther" in 2002, claiming the U.S. govt helped to enable the 9-11 attacks. The press has barely reported this event. There are at least 5 other czars with radical left pasts, so the fun has barely started. Now I ask you why Obama would personally appoint these czars who can by bypass congressional process? These are the poeple he has chosen to enrich his ear in the White House. I respectfully submit that there is such mind blowing stuff going on with these power agendas, that health carre reform is simply one of many diversionary side shows.

Yes, Congress has been lobbied to corrupt excess, but they are now getting it big time from the awakening sheoples for spending this country into oblivion. This has been BOTH a Republican AND Democrat agenda. Yes, Medicare, Social Security, FDIC, Fannie and Freddie, and most banks are technically busted, but as long as Bernanke and the Fed can bid on their own treasury auctions and impose quantitative easing, the Ponzi scheme can go longer, but it will collapse with THIS administration.

There are throngs who will gather and protest next week, and the great majority never attended a political rally before 2009. Now how can that be? What might they see and feel from within that others dismiss because of donkeys and elephants and cicles and hammers and who knows what else. My country and its founding Constitution is being undermined, and only the light of exposure will stop this.

There are 2 men in this world who know more about history, physics, ploitics and culture than any others I have read over the last 30 years...Martin Armstrong and Lyndon LaRouche. How ironic that both ended up imprisoned on trumped up charges because simply they knew too much and could not be corrupted by arms of government. Armstrong has clearly defined the Eco. Confidence Cycle [public distrust of govt] pointed down initially into May-June of 2011 [$1700-2750 gold], on to Sept 2016 at $3500-5000 gold, then a final confidence plunge into Jan. 2020.

Others like Chris Story, with a large intelligence network, are close to the chaotic greed that propells all this nonsense, but the details are sensational to the point of almost being non-believable and certainly difficult to grasp. I am but a passenger on this planet...a free thinker willing to share. And Mrsoul, you and I are not so different in that we both CARE. That is more than ample common ground......peace, pic.

These jerks are broke,they see you have a three million dollar gold collection and they think that the courts will give it to them.
Kanaka creek is not navigable buy the States own definition so it should be dismissed right off the bat.It just makes me sick to see are State sink this low,how do they expect the Great State of California to ever recover if they keep going after the people who produce wealth and employment.Sooner or later their will not be any money left for them to steal and they will be on food stamps like everyone else.Problem with that is most of these people are little more then animals and when animals get cornered they attack anything close enough to bite.Just like the last case it will get thrown out,do not counter sue.
Just one more year and we the people are going to vote some of these people out of office and they know it.
If this is all they come up with Mike they have nothing and when it's over and gold is $1,200 a ounce the mine will have to turn away investors.

I guess I must be one of the nasty doers as well, for I am not easily intimidated by folks with an evil agenda.

I see this whole conspiracy as a form of taxation without representation to steal our valuable assets by financially choking us while big brother keeps printing more and more money which, soon enough, will start up the fires of inflation once again while they and all their paid cohorts continue to wage war on gold.

Why in the heck is the Water Board calling us a shell company? Sounds to me like they are drawing at straws. We are a gold exploration company, according to the SEC. Is this obstreperous organization now representing the SEC or just for their own selfish interests based upon orders from their keepers?

I suggest we contact GATA and ask for assistance. Maybe, Mike needs to contact Fox News and see if he can get an audience with them for, obviously, a noteworthy news story.

Or better yet, contact the Chinese Embassy and let these guys know we are open for the business in seeking venture partners. They would love to get rid of some of their unwanted dollars for a possible equity interest. That
works for me.

A good idea would be setting up a special day in paying honor and respect the efforts of all the Chinese workers that helped develop our famous goldfields.

Another thought: I don't have time to properly quote a specific person from Russia who predicted that the US will eventually break-up into separate countries but if this does happen, where will the gold come from to establish the backing of a new currency??

Will it come from the streams? Will it come from reactivated mining operations? You tell me, where will it come from?
Is this their plan, slowly transfer ownership to the State of past producing properties by squeezing them now on environmental issues?

Just look what the big bankers did, did they create a crisis just to pick some fruit for themselves via the takeover of the Bear Stearns' and Lehman's customers when King Paulson closed them down? Who benefitted? Who will eventually benefit from shutting down the gas powered sluices in the rivers and by forcing current owners of past gold producers to shutter over more attacks based on just pure fantasy?
