YAWN. Thank you for giving us proof to the points earlier made about the nonsense of unaccountable or unknown persons and the value(none)of their opinions. Yawn.

Mr. Miller, Officers and Seated Directors.

This Forum was started with the intent of sharing thoughts.

To much lately I have been appauled by the way our First Ammendment Rights have been bulldozed by either Mr. Miller or someone on this Corporations Staff.

It is no wonder everyone wants to log into this site anonimously with no record for the exact fear of what Mr. Miller (and I say this because he is responsible for his staff and officers) did in exposing the position of Au Master, Master AU Miner and the other guy. Nobody wants to live in a country where they are supposed to have this freedom to speak out but it is being abused by a dictator namely Mr. Miller because he wants the law to work for him, but he does not share the basis to allow this freedom across the board.

Mr. Miller you say you are a US citizen, but don't you know you have a responsibility by citizenship to uphold the same First Ammendment Rights to everyone.

There has to be a real person behind every user name, but after your little stunt of basically saying if you don't say nice things about me, Im going to go tell my mommy and anybody else who will listen!

Well, every person here has a right to criticise you and if you don't like it you can resign your position and leave this company. But just because you make this descisions, if there wrong then your going to here about it.

In fact it surprises me someone has not sued you and your management and board already for some of the descisions and positions you have taken?

But, what do I know, Im just a figment of your imagination, and you certainly will not defend my right to freedom of speech!

And I did log in ononimously so I guess this is one more person you can remove because I am not playing the dictator game fairly.

For the moment, forget about drilling the quartz. From your description more serious and dangerous work faces you than looking for gold. The place to begin in reopening an abandoned adit is at the portal. Do not skimp on eliminating a sudden collapse of the brow or sloughing from the sides. Timber sets and 2-3 inch lagging, or if you can afford a piece of culvert, are first priorities. If wood is used, MSHA requires fire suppression ( a sprinkler system or a fire retardant paint, which costs about $60 per gallon. Once safely inside, ventilation as well as ground support become priorities. Compressed air is the preferred power for the work you described. Electrical wire is costly for prospecting. Buy the biggest compressor you can afford and make it diesel not gasoline. .

Next week your entry and this response will move to the miscellaneous heading. Please keep it active at its new location. The first old mine I opened up was the Morning Glory in late 70ís. I made lots of mistakes.

Good luck. By the way, my crew responded to the Tennessee mine in Sierra County a few years ago to rescue a man and a boy from a caved portal. It turned into a recovery mission when we discovered they were buried under a collapsed portal. We recovered their bodies about 6am after working through the night. It was an especially sad day, and ignorance or exuberance contributed to the loss of life. Donít let it happen to you.

I have a hardrock tunnel in which I would like to follow a vein and in some cases, I would just like to take out some of the quartz. Do to the amount of work, I was thinking about a hammer drill and or a electric rock buster, I guess it is a smaller jack hammer. This tunnel is off the road but I do have a 4 wheeler which would allow me to take the generater and other equipment in. Probably a 3-5 watt generator. I can't use dynimite becuse of the spotted owls breeding most of the summer so I have to use these other methods. Suggestions as to what to use size of gen , drills rock hammers or alternatives would be greatly appreciated.. I am reopening this tunnel from the thirties, which did produce at that time. Thanks again.

The Sierra County Sherrif's Office has several of the newspaper stories regarding this incident hanging on the walls of its office in Downieville. The Child actually disapeared from the yard of the family's vacation home in Goodyear's Bar. (near Downieville) Evidently the child was never found. It is believed a mountain lion got him.
P.S. A message to RICH below, yes we would love to hear more of your stories from Alleghany !

hi guys,
my name is tracy ward and i'm a reporter for the oakland press in pontiac, mich.
in researching a story about a 1945 murder in our area, there was a story about dickie tum suden, a 3-year-old gold heir who turned up missing in downieville, california.
the only thing they found was his mitten.
i only have half the story and i've run the name online, but no luck.
i was just curious if they found him and what happened with it... it was probably a pretty big case at the time.
any help would be appreciated.. i was just curious about what happened to this poor kid.
tracy, heyskoop@aol.com

Lets ponder something...

What is safer?

the coordinates of the dynamite beemed from a secure palm device to a secure satellite to a secure server in the doj server farm or....

The sheriff that has the location of our dynamite on a memo in his office in a file cabinent with a cam lock? Not to mention how many people have access to said file cabinent and with or without the keys to open it.

Who is to say all that info isn't stored in a database on a computer in cali anyways? Anyone wanna take a bet on that?

Oh well, its the same mentality people have about paying bills online they would rather send a check in an envelope that everyone knows is a payment and put it in an unsecure mailbox outside their house to have the mailman who may or may not have it always secured deliver it to the sorter which may or may not take your check to get it mailed to another mailman to put it in another unsecure box or B)pay online with secure encryption to another computer with secured encryption behind a firewall and not to mention your probably paying on a visa debit card which your only liable to 50 bucks of unathorized charges by federal law?

Tough choice.

So Mike do you bank online at all? What is the big deal about letting the government know where the dynamite is anyways and what is your guarantee when the authority when back to her truck she didn't just put it in anyways?

Sometimes finding the real battles in life are half the battle.. IMHO, you shoulda just let it go.. BIG DEAL!

Hello All,

I'm a new member, registering as "Wombat16to1" (John) [it told me that plain old "wombat" name was already taken here ~ is there another wombat here?]. Allow me to introduce myself and interests. I am a geologist in Australia, and also one who has gone back to university for extra degrees, studying Social Sciences, with a view to entering consultancy work in Earth AND Social Science arena (or anything to do with either if work is scarse).

I have a piece of student assignment research to do, which will last into 2004. The topic is: "THE PLACE OF GEOLOGY AND MINING IN SOCIETY".

I feel the Mother Lode country is an excellent place to study this, and Californian gold history also has a great deal in common with the Australian goldfields as I'm sure most people realise.

If anyone has views about the (changing nature) of the place of geology and mining in society please send me views, material or URL references to john.mail@ozemail.com.au or to PO Box 264, Summer Hill, NSW 2130.

Cheers for now Ö John

Ditto - the more news about the mine and what is going on would be a very positive step towards keeping us all informed about our investment.

Thanks for changing the current picture in the "Photo Album". It's good to see that "Normal", everyday life still goes on at the 16 to 1. Let's get those camera's clicking. I'm sure everyone would like to see 16 to 1 "Life", above or below ground.

www.kitco.com has an interesting article about the current price of gold. "African strike deadline, weaker U.S. Dollar drives gold higher". Go to: http://www.kitco.com/ind/egs/jul282003.html

I have been doing research on an
old stock certificate. I can't find any information.
Can anyone shed any information on what happened to California Comstock gold mine? I believe its dated 1937. Make my day!

First, if it's for real you have to quietly asertain whose property it is on. If it's on your, do you own the mineral rights? If it's in nugget form or in dust it can be extracted easier than if it were a lode deposit or a potential open pit operation which will be expensive in time and money. Also, what mining regulations govern potential removal in the area of the suspected find. In addition, the chemical make-up of the potential ore may be too complex to economically separate.

The mine office, I'm sure, would not mind assisting with a few of your potential questions.
