I found this article on the web about the Midas Mine. Go to:

In the process of going through old family papers and organizing things, I recently came across stock certificates for the Harrison Gulch Mining Company totalling 7,100 shares at a buck each. These shares were bought by my late great uncle in 1920 and 1921. In doing some research I have figured out that this mining company had two mines; the Midas and the Victor, both up in Shasta County near the town of Knob. Along with the stock certificates is a geological report of the area and both mines and the potential for gold in each. Evidently the Midas Mine had a fire in the main shaft back in 1914 and it subsequently flooded. I don't know if it still is or not or if it has been since re-opened. That is why I am telling this story to see if any of you out there know anything or want to know more of what I have come across. There is also a letter written by a MG Henry from Sumner WA who bought the mine because it was in tax default since 1916. He evidently bought it in 1926. So let me know what you know - if anything.

Troy,
The answer to your question is another question. Why do you want to know? There have been some people out there of late that have asked some pretty narrow questions of people in industry so that they could show a negative outcome of their hard work and to pad their own agendas. I hope that you are not one of those people. Perhaps if you were to write, call, or e-mail for a report from the 16 to 1 they might be more than happy to send you one. It doesn't hurt to ask. Besides, looking at one years production report doesn't tell you much more than just that. You really need to look at the history of the mine or, at least the last fifteen years. You need to factor in the amount of gold produced, labor, cost of daylighting, energy, price per ounce, market value of specimens per ounce, updated equipment, etc., etc., etc. Sometimes, a question can be to simple because, the answer doesn't mean anything. It might also be the case that they can't tell you that since they're a stock held company. And, since I'm not a member of the 16 to 1, I don't know either.

Does anyone know,concerning the Sixteen to One Mine how much gold was mined in 2004 and the cost per ounce to produce that gold?

Gfxgold, good work. This company is in Colorado Springs and will be receiving a call from me on Monday. Their saws are designed for cutting different materials in one object. Cutting quartz and cutting gold are quite different. The diamond wire process is slow but who cares if it increases our net slab and is uniform. Thanks.

The snow depth ranges from two to five feet except where snowplows have created eight-foot piles. Last Tuesday everybody was stuck. The County has done a good job of keeping the Ridge Road open. Black ice is everywhere. The question and answer entries are great. I particularly like dick’s recitation. It reminds me of Will Rodgers, “Mining for gold is a lot different than mining for spinach.” I might not have it right, but I put it at the top of a shareholders’ letter a few years ago.

Mike,
Here is one company that you can talk to and tell them what you want. They will build a custom unit for any purpose. I'm sure that it's not cheap. They also have standard units. But, if the return per ounce is there, then it's worth the price. Go to:

P.S. How deep is the snow in Alleghany now?

Dear Troy,

Are you asking about the 16:1 or worldwide production?

I can’t answer specifics but I believe that the best reply as to the value of gold was the dialogue in the movie Treasure of Sierra Madre.

Howard, the old man bunking in the Oso Negro hotel, has this to say:

“Real bonanzas are few and far between and they take a lot of finding. Answer me this one, will you? Why’s gold worth some twenty bucks per ounce? A thousand men, say, go searching for gold. After six months one of ‘em is lucky – one out of the thousand. His find represents not only his own labor but that of the nine hundred ninety-nine others to boot. Six thousand months or fifty years of scrabbling over mountains, going hungry and thirsty. An ounce of gold, mister, is worth what it is because of the human labor that went into the finding and the getting of it. There’s no other explanation, mister. In itself, gold ain’t good for anything much except to make jewelry and gold teeth. Gold’s a devilish sort of thing anyway.”

B. Traven wrote the book, and if you’re interested in Mexico, he’s the one to read.

Best regards,

Dick Davis

Does anyone know how many ounces were produced last year and the total expense to produce one ounce of gold?

Dear Mike,

A biologist or a Doc may explain it better. But putrefaction is setting in and since gas is lighter, the egg floats. It’s the same reason that a drowned victim’s body rises to the surface after a few days.

Now would someone please find a wire saw?

Best regards,

Dick

I’m impressed with the quick solution about floating and sinking eggs. Now I need some research help. Here is the issue:
Yesterday I sold about $20,000 of slab. Because the material was so heavy (thickness and gold vs. quartz) we lost about twenty-five percent ($5,000) in value to the buyer. We can reduce this lost revenue by using a wire-cutting machine (saw) instead of the blade saws currently in use. Wire cutting machines have been around for years. One cutter is using one but will not tell us how he got it. It cuts a rock similar to the manner that a bread-slicing machine cuts a loaf of bread…many pieces at a time and all the same thickness. The preferred thickness of our largest production buyers is 2.5 mm. Any material over that thickness must be ground away, thereby increasing the cost per unit of the piece of jewelry.

The Company will buy or build a wire cutter to accomplish the goal of maximizing the yield of its high-grade. I am not skilled in Internet searching and have exhausted my resources to locate the equipment or someone who can make one. If the FORUM can provide a lady the answer to floating eggs, maybe it can help us significantly increase our revenue by find a wire saw. This is no joke. We need this badly. We have over 100 pounds of high-grade to cut.
Your help will be appreciated by the entire crew.

BY the way, I know why gold sinks in water, but what makes the specific gravity different in eggs?

Those that float are rotten. Don't crack them. Sinkers are OK.... still.

Like panning for gold, the good ones go to the bottom.

Best regards,

Dick Davis

As a minority female on the dominately male forum, I come for help.I began dinner and found four dozen eggs on the shelves of my refigerator.I rarely eat eggs and con’t explain why the four dozen. I put a dozen in a pot on the stove.Nine float and three sunk. Why?
Which ones do I eat or throw out?

The Kenton Mine Lodge is closed and has been for about seven years. Casey's Place will have rooms for rent beginning on New Year's Eve.
Casey's Place is having a Lobster Dinner and Band for New Year's Eve. The rooms are already booked.

Just an observation based on 30 years in the Alleghany Mining District: Some companies promote stock with slick Public Relations. The locals refer to these companies as "shareholder miners". I have seen many come and go and in the end the insiders do fine, the stock goes in the toilet, and very little if any gold is produced.

Then there are the real mines. They are in the business of mining gold, not promoting stock.

Words of wisdom from successful "old timers" of the Alleghany Mining District regarding the most succesful approach to pocket mining. "You drill for structure (geological structure) and drift for grade"

The geological structure of the Alleghany District for the most part has been drilled and mapped. With a pocket deposit core drilling does not and cannot prove grade.
