The Pink Sheets are no different that a pawn shop operation.

The way the pawn shop profits is usually buying from an ignorant person or from someone needing a fast liquidation with little consideration for price(drug addict) and then waiting it out until a value buyer shows up.

You would think that stock and bond organizations under the supposed watchful eye of regulators would fear them for dropping a stock from 37 1/2 cents to one cent in a heart beat but then again, the SEC has lost their creditability with respected people in the industry long ago.

Thank you for the quick reply, I'm not a seller at .50 cents or a $1.00 as the price of gold climbs this company will only become more valuable.
It's only a matter of time, may the next blast be golden.

As considered an “insider” I am not a seller for a dollar so the reference to .50 cents makes no sense to me. Now, a penny? If a penny represents anything of value to our shareholders and company, I cannot find it. My guess is the sale has something to do with a transfer in an estate. The only way the Company knows details about transaction is when the transfer agent reports activity…who supplied the stock certificate and what name is going on the new stock certificate.

My arrogance may be showing should I suggest it is some attempt by people who have no equity interest in our corporation but realize that they should. After all, where can one find a 100 year old American gold operator that operates mines it outright owns, has operating permits and an experienced crew and infrastructure in place? When these reports of penny sales turn up, a comment heard more than once is: it may be lawyers or accountants working to clean up an estate. I feel sadness for the dead person if this is true. He or she wanted to bequeath value to heirs and held the opinion that owning a small piece of a gold mine in California was a good idea.

Another though is that if the sale/purchase was through a stock broker, that company and its broker are incompetent, unprofessional or white collar criminals and the seller should call his or her lawyer right now to seek damages for fraud.

Someone managed to get 8100 shares yesterday for a penny.
From .375 down to a penny, any thoughts on why?
This stock should be at least .50 cents a share.

Would you give your pink slip to your car or your deed to your home to an investment bank? Then why would you accept their crap to retain your stock certificates?

There should never be a middleman between you and your paid-in-full property. What happened at the brokerage firm MF Global could be the small beginning, $1.2 billion initial customer account loss, to bigger such events to follow.

Mann2900, I cannot add much to what Martin recommended (see below).

You will find the past, which will help you understand risks and rewards; you will find enough about the present to inform you the position of the corporation right now; and you will find the future goals, prospects, dreams, purposes, ideology, paths to success and more placed in numerous locations on this website. Then if you still have questions, write me or call my office. What you may not find on other websites of junior gold mining companies are details about the obstacles facing us. Best wishes. MMM

4650 shares traded yesterday at $0.25
 By jta3

01/12/2011  2:06PM

I believe it's based on the last transaction on the pink sheets, which was 0.10 a few weeks ago. This was for 300 shares, a whopping $30 transaction. These 300 share transactions seem to occur a few times a year, maybe to keep the market "made" at that price level in case a bona fide seller comes along. I've had standing bids at .20 and .25 but have had only one fill in more than a year. My broker acct uses the pink sheet most recent transaction as their basis.

Below on 11/09/09 cw3343 brought share ownership by Bank of the West. I tried the site but could not find the bank’s filings. Can anyone find them and see if the bank still owns 22,500 shares?

Now the reason I wrote under this topic. My Charles Schwab statement came today for the period October 1,2010 to December 31, 2010. I own a lot of shares and have the stock certificates in a safe place; however I left 18,510 shares in Schwab years ago to get information sent to me. Today I learned that my Sixteen to One account value started the period at $3,702 and ended the period at $1,851 or $0.10 a share. Where can I find sellers at $0.10? I’m a buyer.

I finished reading entries in this long-standing topic. Is Schwab part of the gray market or the pink sheet market? Where was the $0.10 price recorded? Answers anyone?

Thanks, Martin for your confidence. There will be a solution. It’s like finding gold when you have a detector signal. The miner knows he will sack high-grade but not how much. The company will get a proper market for our shares but we just don’t know the timing.

John, why did you write this post on the Sixteen to One FORUM?

Penny Stocks bring high returns on investment. That is why people who know the value of these stocks invest their money in certain shares of stock. Actually, instead of investing a huge amount of money to a single share of stock, investing in a multiple stocks is better. Whenever possible, investing in solid stocks increases the chance to get profits.

It really is lousy that the
closing of the Pacific Exchange
caused the company problems with
the creation of the "other" mar-
ket. One of these days Mike, our
President will find a solution.
He is pretty clever!!

Here we go again with disbelief about how OSTO shares sell in regulated public marketplaces!

An existing shareholder wrote this week that his standing order to buy OSTO stock was filled at $0.15 a share (3800 shares) with Ameritrade. His pal called to report that he bought shares at $0.25 with Schwab. Other shareholders have standing buy orders with brokers at higher prices. The last actual trade our company handled for a seller and buyer went off at $0.60. In this case, as always, the seller sent his share certificate to Alleghany and the buyer sent her money. After the transfer agent got all the information, it sent new certified stock certificates to each party. It is like getting a deed to the property you just bought. That is what a stock certificate represents…ownership.

I called the lucky buyer. He is elated to get such a bargain. He had forgotten his standing order and was surprised to learn about his new addition. I encouraged him to order out his shares, which he said he would do. I asked him to tell his friend to do the same and let me know when the transfer is completed. If you are unaware of the trend in stock ownership, it is to eliminate stock certificates for all companies and just have a data entry to prove ones ownership. The movement is on a fast track.

I hope to hear from the buyers when they get the certificates. I will then go to our independent transfer agent to identify the seller. It will be thrilling to tell the seller that his broker screwed him out of $1,710. His $570 check could have been $2,280.

Why does the stock brokering industry and public companies lead this movement to eliminate stock certificates? Stock certificates have a tradition of artistic beauty and value. Many people collect them. Years ago some shareholders joked with me that everyone needs a worthless stock certificate hanging in their office or playroom.

Stock certificates mean a lot more to the financial industry and individuals than an barbaric paper trail. Stock certificates lessen fraudulent manipulation or manipulation that may not be illegal but not disclosed. Have any readers ordered an Original Sixteen to One Mine certificates and struggled to get results?

I also personally sign each certificate. So does the corporate secretary. The Wall Street Journal could do its readers a real service to do an in-depth analysis of this issue. Will our stock investments be more secure when all certificates are a thing of the past, an old relic of yesteryear? I think not. How about you?

To Investor:

I kind of thought the same thing years ago, as far as "fake" gold companies. But then I bought some shares and went to the annual meeting. If you make it up here, be sure to attend the meeting. You can tour the gold mine and it is an experience that you will never forget.
They also own the Brown Bear mine, which is not in operation, but used to produce quite a bit...

Mr Miller,

thank you for your new message. I am very positively impressed about what I see here. This very vibrant forum shows the good substance this company has, instead of some other companies, which, even better evaluated, are just "fake" companies. Your very expressive message also make us to think about it. I will certainly stay involved.

Best regards,

Very interesting that the last large trade was a non-USA investor. Thanks to this person for letting us know what is going on. Can't blame him/her for buying, if the firm filled the trade isn't the investors fault... INVESTOR-I respect your right to keep the brokerage information private. It really would not matter much. I was able to buy shares once at .05-10 per share a few years ago...
At some point I will get around to seeing if I am able to issue the shares out.

One thing I noticed, per Bank of the West's 2nd quarter 13f filing, is that they are sitting on 22,500 shares. These shares were not on thier filings from a year or so ago, so it must be a relatively new holding. I am waiting for them to post the 3rd qtr filing, to see if the shares are still held.
Anyone can look up this public information on SEC.GOV website.

Reason I bring this up is that, a few years ago, Bank of the West had a large position like this, and dumped it. But we do not know what price, or when they sold. Other reason I bring this up, is that Bank of the West is owned by BNP Paribas... Not trying to infer anything here, it is just a interesting observation on my part.

To Investor,

Thank for your added comments yesterday. My brother lives in Quito, Ecuador and is here with me in Alleghany for a short time. I’ve traveled in his home country for thirty years minus eight years when he return to San Francisco. I also visited Chile, Argentina and a brief stop over in Peru. I was invited to take part in a gold mine 25 years ago. I declined for several reasons, including labor concerns and security matters. Foreign operators in Bolivia and Peru have had problems with the mines. You live in a great country with much to offer future generations. I’m glad you found this company and you are fortunate to have purchased so many shares for next to nothing.

While the United States, especially California is over reacting to self centered environmentalist and the Sixteen to One faces unreasonable challenges from time to time, our situation is quite positive overall. Some of my mining friends agree that California is the most proven gold belt with the least mining activity in the world. That’s a reality worth considering for careful investors.

You are right: few people know about the Sixteen to One. I do like Wall Street and know its importance to our culture and society. The Company was set to join the American Stock Exchange with Spear Leeds as its specialist years ago. We were quite excited but an unusual fabrication was presented to the SEC about one of our most famous gold specimens, “the Whopper”, which led to an SEC investigation. Nothing was wrong but it clouded our admittance to the exchange. The SEC never answered our requests for the identity of the liar who caused us the problem. So, Wall Street should be our friend.

Analysts, stock promoters, investment advisers and brokerage houses are very useful to all companies. We chose years ago to play the game straight up. It may hurt our public marketing program but it continues to be the preferred way we conduct our business. I could tell you numerous stories (true, of course) about the junior gold paper pushers, which serve us no purpose. Honest promotion is well respected in old school mining teachings. It is a necessary part of the management for there are times, such as now for the Sixteen to One that an infusion of working capital is necessary to pick up the pace for gold production. The company with 82 million outstanding shares is being manipulated. Buying stock low and selling it high may be the only reason some investors plunge in. We really are gold miners. We’re gold miners because our gold mining properties really have gold. It may take a little longer but when we are funded, even with the modest amount currently sought, the results should sprint past all those gold companies pushing moose pasture, uneconomical “reserves”, and bought analysts, promoters and newsletter writers.

I have contacted Investment Bankers, venture capitalists, natural resource brokerage houses and start up companies with cash and no property worth a nickel. Whether is is uncertainty, or some other reasons, I cannot gain an interest to even check us out. Something is wrong with the present and future for gold and specifically our Company for the lack of interest. It could well be our approach. It could well be our management.

Like you, I too would like to see OSTO "more actively marketed in financials". No, “people have just forgotten it” as you close your last entry. People just are not aware that it exists. People who know the Sixteen to One usually never forget it. Stay involved.
