When asked to prepare a vision for the Sixteen to One a few years ago, the following appeared from my thoughts about the future.



The vision for Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc. (the Company) includes America’s natural resources but focuses on the plentiful natural resources of California. While the vision may appear to be rather explicit or narrow, it includes gold and other mineral products, timber and water. It encompasses their utilization, management, development and marketing for maximum yield. No other public reporting company incorporated in the United States shares this focus.

This vision includes the social aspects of natural resources and the desperate need to protect the cultural as well as the physical environment of our precious natural resources. The Company combines all social sciences as well as most physical sciences into an operational program. It is an enlightened business plan of operation. The Sixteen to One’s past reveals a necessary approach of maintaining long-term assets with the short term needs of producing revenue. Its present status is demonstrative proof that a small natural resource company has survived the demands of natural resource utilization in today’s overly aggressive pro environmental outlook.

The Company will become known as the model for future natural resource development in California and the United States. Its operations will challenge the erroneous myths and prejudices of well meaning activists who hinder the sensible extraction of our natural wealth. These beliefs have turned the omnipresent demands for raw materials to natural resource production in other parts of the world, a dangerous reality.

A primary ingredient for our vision and subsequent model to expand is an infusion of working capital. There has been a noticeable lack of interest from Wall Street or private investors in forest and mineral production. The modest attention of the stock market towards America’s natural resource companies hurts future generations both in the United States and the world. Some patterns of investment are predictable. Investors’ interest in specific industries continues to move from one sector to another. The Gold Sector is abstruse, removed from the usual way of thinking and difficult to comprehend. The forest industry follows closely in its mystic.

A movement into natural resource ownership or participation is overdue. Unlike banking, savings and loan institutions, automobiles, real estate, airlines, pharmaceuticals, computers, utilities and practically every part of the complex mixture of America’s democratic capitalism, the natural resource companies are ignored. Perhaps one simple answer is that resource companies believe they must stay under the radar to function in today’s hostile anti-mining/anti-logging mentality. Perhaps a more likely reason is the pure misunderstanding that potential investment capital has about these small but vital industries.

The Company’s dream foresees an awakening of Americans to the realization that we need and will benefit from a return to domestic natural resource productivity. For almost fifty years America has been bombarded with media blame for past degradation to the environment. Some of the blame is justified. Many extraction and harvesting methods, however, are no longer practiced and cannot be assumed as what to expect from future operators.

American industries have learned from the past and clearly are the most environmentally sensitive operators in the world. This is one reason to bridge the ignorance gap of the population and our leaders. The “not-in-my-back-yard” position is a short-sided myth! Vital and necessary minerals and other resource products come from countries without the sensible regulations that have evolved in the United States over the past hundred years. The consequences of this are global.

Even though population growth and physical development exploded during the twentieth century, the world-changing roll of the United States has taken a more dramatic turn. A counter cultural shift emerged. America was considered the can-do country. Democratic and capitalistic social ideologies opened the doors for an expanding middle class, especially from workers identified as “blue collar”. Our natural resources were developed and accessible. What changed?

Somewhat reluctantly America became a world power and responsible leader. The blue-collar worker of today is losing economic ground as our society turns more and more to the service industries. But the need for manufacturing contemporary products in America remains; and in order to produce, industry requires raw materials. America has them in abundance. America also needs the backbone of its labor resources to insure our freedoms.

The time has come to broadcast how to treat our inherited resources in the 21st century. Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc., a US corporation, has all the pieces to lead this renaissance except one. That missing ingredient is explained in its Executive Summary. The oldest American mining corporation operating needs a grubstake to turn its dream into a reality. It will celebrate a 100-year, centennial birthday in October 2011.

Happy Birthday America. On July 4, 2011, the land that we appreciate and love is 235 years old.

Before WW II Our state almost had a split to another state. " The State of Jefferson" It only included California's two most northern counties. In the past the State had an initiative opinion of the people to split the state 6 ways, which was approved, but only an opinion of the people. As usual the legislature just ignored what the people wanted.
Some thought on this is to split the California Eastern Counties away from the Western Counties, but to have access to the ocean, it would be necessary to have either San Diago County or Del Norte County as part of the split.
San Diago County would be the better county, as it is an economic power house to maintain the economic stability of the new State. The society of San Diago is more in tune to respecting the rights of the people.
What needs to be done is a popular vote of the counties in question by the people. A convention of county representatives to draw up a state constitution, and charter. Draw up a petition for an initiative vote to the Whole state of California, for the approval of separation, with the requirement for the legislature to action of approval to the mandate of the voter. Then a petition for state hood could be readied for presentation to congress and submitted by representative congressmen of those in congress with sympathy of the new state hood. I hope that the counties of interest pursue this action.

I'd like to see all of these northern counties secede too.

Official calls for Riverside, 12 other counties to secede from California. Maybe, Southern California's past producing gold mines will become active again.

Bluejay has struck a nerve within, in a good way. Thank you for the avenue:

Solar and meteoritic impact cycles prove global cycles void of human input exist. It is painful to endure the politics of the newly named "Climate Changers"...as their's is clearly a political ploy.

Man didn't invent the sun; nor has man invented the weather. Al Gore tried to fake it with his movie (and an unfortunate many bought it like snake oil.)

Politics has a way of seeking the lowest common denominator: the least informed.

I like to point out the falacy by inviting human-causation-global-warmists to visit Yosemite Valley and ask them to ask themselves whether or not it is "beauty" (yes, of course.)....Next is to ask them where the ice went, and why it disappeared.

(Aerosol cans or CO2 auto emmisions or both, they are stumped and fumble around to assemble their head to assimilate what they've been conditioned to blame.)

Bottom line: we have historic ignorance on parade.

It does, indeed, directly affect every part of "regulation" we endure.


and therefore have a handle on the political CRAP angle that generates the regulatory caltrops that prevent private-sector success.

This directly has affected the grand Original Sixteen to One Mine.

There is a solution to Global Warming in the minds of those who use it to control: it's called Socialism, or even better, Communism, where everyone toes the government line.

The other solution is to point out that it is a human-fabricated futute disaster.

I, for one, know the difference. And can back it up.

Beware of the manipulators

Thoughts from Martin Armstrong:

The importance of really understanding the Great Depression stems from the fact it was a Sovereign Debt Crisis. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the accounts of the Great Depression were domestic oriented influenced by the socialists who had been rising on the political scene even since the 1880s after the 1870s high and Marx’s Communist Manifesto in appearance 1848. They seized the facts and manipulated history for political purposes.

Just as the environmentalists used a natural warming cycle in the sun to claim man alone has caused global warming ignoring the natural 300 year cycle in the energy output of the sun to further their agenda. What about the previous Ice Ages that were followed by global warming without cars? The socialists re-wrote history to support their cause.

Is this the beginning of a new trend?

The Soledad Mountain Project, gold and silver, just outside of Mojave in Kern County is getting closer to production with all permits in place. The last remaining hurdle is to secure financing.

When in operation the mine will employ 165 and is expected to produce 75,000 ounces of gold and 950,000 ounces of silver per year for a minimum of 13 years.

The project is owned by Golden Queen Mining.

Utah is one State to be watched for future trends. Keep an eye on Texas along with Representative Ron Paul of Texas- and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky for resistance against what is clearly wrong.

Lee: Gold, Silver Should Be Treated Like Currency (Salt Lake Tribune)

Senators Mike Lee (UT), Rand Paul (KY), and Jim DeMint (SC) have co-sponsored a bill that would get rid of capital gains taxes for gold and silver coins.

Far beyond our specific mining obstacles in Alleghany, our wolf-cry as Free Americans is to shed our shyness to engage the inate fortune that is in our hands to discover!!!!

[All the political crap is trivial in big-picture....our challenge is to maintain our focus of freedom.]

Allow me these thoughts to move forward:

"We don't step into their circle of distraction... we reverse it instead. WE ARE SUCCESS, despite the obstacles thrown in front of us. We don't accept the premises of their arguments, instead don't engage in that areana, and show the way to the expanding pie. Ours, THIS, is a GRAND GOOD FORTUNE to share with all, not one to be ashamed of....We never allow the notion that great fortune to those who pursue detracts from those without the insight.

"We lead by example!!! And inspire!!!"

David Hidalgo/Louie Perez wrote, “Will the Wolf Survive” as members of an East L.A. band. The debut album and song remain a powerful thought three decades later. When Rick started this topic, I expected a short life and blend it into one of the longstanding topics. It may happen, but for a while let your mind flow back in America’s history, return to the present and reach for thoughts about our future in the United States.

My belief that the wolf will survive accepts the notion that those forces against two strong legs and two strong arms are not as strong as the sounds across the nation, which comes from hearts and minds. Another songwriter comes to mind, Rodney Crowell, who sings, “Ignorance is the enemy”. The pendulum of extreme right and radical left continues to move away from both.

Through the chill of winter
Running across the frozen lake
Hunters are out on his trail
All odds are against him
With a family to provide for
The one thing he must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?

Drifting by the roadside
Climbs each storm and aging face
Wants to make some morning's fate
Losing to the range war
He's got two strong legs to guide him
Two strong arms keep him alive
Will the wolf survive?

Standing in the pouring rain
All alone in a world that's changed
Running scared, now forced to hide
In a land where he once stood with pride
But he'll find his way by the morning light

Sounds across the nation
Coming from your hearts and minds
Battered drums and old guitars
Singing songs of passion
It's the truth that they all look for
The one thing they must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?

Being able to survive in an environment that has allowed the gutting of the Rule of Law has been no small feat. Congratulations to the defenders of our company.

The following link clearly points the finger to who should be in the Post Office behind glass on the Most Wanted List for degrading this nation and stealing our money.

Congratulations to the Original Sixteen to One Mine, and to all of those underground (however few, when tough-times challenge)...and to the above-ground positive and persistent optimistic pure-will to survive...and to the wisdom of all to thwart regulatory-criminal-machine-opposition that has tried to cause collapse.

This GRAND MINE stands strong!

Congrats to the shareholders (all of us) who know the faith we maintain is true.

Amazing things happen with persistence.

"out of work construction workers"
This may have been true during the economic down turn of 1998.

I was one of those out of work construction workers with a mining background that went back to mining then.

I worked mining any time there was no construction work and knew of a number of others that did.
Many of use had the skills to mine and the will to work instead of drawing unemployment

This down turn i know of no construction workers turned miners with the dredging ban.

When honest, well-meaning people(ABrink) find a worthwhile article to share with others on our website, I am thrilled. Overcoming ignorance, which is pervasive throughout society today, continues to be the best way to stimulate actions to slow, stop our harmful behaviors. ABrink found an article and was kind enough to report it to distant friends.

BUT the new California gold rush article is inaccurate at best or reckless or willfully misleading at worse. The key words in the first paragraph are “hopeful amateur miners”.

Suggesting that “hardcore pros” (does the author mean hardcore amateurs?) are using dredging pumps and standing in hip waders while balancing portable (gas driven) pumps in May on the American River is ludicrous. Due to demagoguery the California legislature wrote and passed a law that prohibits all dredging in California waterways. The rationale is ridiculous yet our Governor signed it.

Claiming that “out of work construction workers” have moved to the mountains and are opening up mines, I guess without mandatory permits is insane. It isn’t happening in any rush. The biggest problem facing gold mining out west is California according to those few of us with a history in mining. The cost of and delays in acquiring permits to operate are legendary.

The author has confused filing a mining claim with the BLM is the equivalent with issuing a mining permit. If those truly ignorant people working to revoke one of our greatest opportunities for all Americans over 18 years of age (the ability to stake a claim under the 1872 Mining Law), will out, the global corporate powers will take over our domestic natural resources. It will be either a monopoly or oligopoly, take your choice, Either way Americans and America are the losers.

BY the way, the Mad Hedge Fund Trader closes his article with a pitch to all those folks who cannot go stand and pan gold in California to buy an EFT. Surprise, surprise.

I have to compliment Mike Miller's Statement from The President of the 16 to One. I totally agree.
In all the counties of California, there is the Civil Grand Jury Process for reviewing the county and city government agencies for their responsibility to their prescribe duties, and their relations to the public. We as a state do not have this policy at the state level.

This is a rewrite to clarify confusion of a previous comment.

There is no such thing as a bill with the label of HB 1388.
It is either HR or SB.

There is a HR 1388 For development of Rare Earth Elements.

Below is the Federal Registry of exactly what The President authorized in 2009 not 2011.

"Presidential Determination No. 2009-15 of January 27, 2009

Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs Related To Gaza
Memorandum for the Secretary of State
By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962 (the ``Act''), as amended (22 U.S.C. 2601), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Act, that it is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

From Bob Chapman's International Forecaster, June 15, 2011.

HB 1388 PASSED!!!!!! [While America has 22.4% unemployment.]

You just spent $20,000,000 to move members/supporters of Hamas, a terrorist organization, to the United States; housing, food, transportation, the whole enchilada. 

HB   1388 PASSED

Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S. Needs to know.....
H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs.    You may want to read about it...  
It   wasn't mentioned on the news... Just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.

Obama funds $20M in taxpayer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA. This is the news that did not, and will not, make the headlines.

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza.
The "presidential determination" which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States, was signed and appears in the Federal Register.

Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing, transportation and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

Now we learn that he is allowing thousands of Palestinian refugees to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bailouts and "stimulation” packages.

There are still "quotas"; You

the lenders are still hanging on
to their cash,literally, so the loans offered (but not made) are

The folks we need are like dec'd
