Thanks for this, Blue Jay. Most interesting! I will especially check out LODE that this guy pointed out.

Some of the mining stocks are so dirt cheap right now that you have to be nuts not to buy them. LODE looks like it's trading around $1.70 right now.

The article also mentioned an ETF traded under the symbol GDX - I had been looking at that one earlier myself.

Another good one is the "Spider S&P Metals and Mining ETF" or XME. That one has exposure to different kinds of mining including but not limited to gold. The thing about an ETF is that you can get exposure to a lot of different companies at once so if one or two go belly up, you don't get hurt as badly. Last spring I bought Sutter and I'm prbly gonna lose all my money. Fortunately, we are only talking a couple hundred bucks so it won't kill me. Had I not bought Sutter, I probably would have just spent my money on something stupid, anyways.

Regards.

The situations with both companies or operations have existed for months. Sutter Gold had a complicated funding arrangement where money flowed from South Africa to Australia to its operation in California. Key management left. Overstated production claims were recognized as bloated or false. Major shareholders are probably trying to figure out what to do next.

Grass Valley had a deadline for funding the continuation of the permitting process, which was not met. The proposed operation is dead.

One thing I have noticed is that Sutter Gold has taken a big tumble in the last few trading days. Has anybody else noticed that?

Also of interest, I noticed yesterday that Emgold has now completely removed the Idaho-Maryland project from their website.

re the martin armstrong post below.

It is not the 3rd city, he is forgetting about Vallejo, and Desert Hot Springs already was BK about ~10 yrs ago.

From Martin Armstrong:

A possible third California City, Desert Hot Springs, has announced that it may seek bankruptcy protection since it will run out of money come March. This would be the third city in that state along with San Bernardino and Stockton to seek court protection from creditors. This is how pensions will be renegotiated at the municipal level where they cannot just print money like the Feds.

Nice mention of Alleghany in the Oct/Nov Pick & Shovel Gazette. First time I heard of the Sixteen was in a Gold Prospectors Magazine article after you found that pocket in the eighties.
One of the most authentic Gold Rush towns to be found, where the largest pockets of gold in the world have been found.
Wish he would have added working Gold Rush town, with a working publicly traded gold mine.
All the luck at finding another plum like that or larger, it sure would help right about now!!!

For information about metal detectors review the "Technology" topic on the FORUM.

Hi all,
I understand that Metal detectors were instrumental in the Sixteen to One. I am interested in what type and model of metal detectors have been used and how well they performed.

Thanks,

With a long good antenna and a
tube activated CB unit that was
produced by a company that is now
gone, I was able to talk to a
guy in Graniteville from my place
in the valley south of Yuba City.

Hi Mike, go in to Robinson Timber, the truck parts section, they can help you with an antenna. what you get will partly depend on your vehicle, Magnetic mount ones work pretty well, then there are the stainless steel whips, twin co-phased and lots of other options, but I would keep it simple for now. You could set a c b in the seat, plug it in to the power source in the cab, and run the coax out the window to a magnetic mount antenna placed in the center of the roof of the cab, easy to set up, relatively cheap, and it would let you know if you can reach anyone. you might also google C B clubs for the area you are interested in.

Thanks writers. So, I get one for the truck and drive the area to find out if a base can hear me. I buy a $50 mobile unit for the truck.

What about its antenna, not the base antenna? Should the mobile unit boost its sending power? If so, what are costs and options?

I will do this then seek information about the needs of a base station to monitor the mobile unit. Ideas?

CB with a 100 amp boost might work, it will depend on where the nearest base stations are. You can buy a nice little Uniden CB from General Trailer for around 50.00, You Might need a directional antenna, I once talked from Hershberger meadows above Prospect Oregon into Medford with one hooked to the booster, with an antenna we put up in a tree, we had it as communication for the vet checks on a horse endurance ride. I had one as a kid where we lived in a canyon 5 miles out of Myrtle Creek Ore. And I regularly talked to a friend in Myrtle Creek.
If you know some one who has one in their PU have them break for a radio check in the area you need to check out, and see if you get any response. Alternatively you could put an add in the local paper asking for help from local CBers, if they know there is a need they may well step up and help. Big Al

Thinking ham radio, but with no generator/power that is an issue.

If it is just solely for potential health issues, maybe get a SPOT emergency GPS transmitter.

Sat phones are pretty expensive, not my area of expertise but I am guessing
$500-$1000.

Thank him for his service to our country!!!

Satelite phone would be your best optiion.

My brief search on Google under CB radio left me in doubt about a situation. Our caretaker at property about six air miles and ten dirt road miles in mountainous Trinity County has health issues. There is no electricity or phone service. He has a truck.(he’s a 79 year old vet…(Marine). I want to get him communications that work. It seems like the antenna is key not the unit itself. Used equipment is okay as cost is an issue; however reliability in bad weather trumps all.

Comments or suggestions welcomed.
