“The entire ocean life is just loaded with a series of contaminants, most of which have been released by human beings” says Roger Payne, biologist with Ocean Alliance and reported by Arthur Max, Associated Press writer. The study analyzed cells from sperm whales. The report noted high levels of cadmium, aluminum, chromium, lead, silver, mercury and titanium. Payne makes a fairly tight argument that these contaminants are “the single greatest health threat that has ever faced the human species.”

Further research was urged to the whaling commission. If Mr. Payne’s recommendation is to locate and mitigate the introduction of the mineral pollutants, hooray. If all that is wanted is more research of the sea life, boo. Anyone claiming that these mineral elements or chemicals could be “horrific for both whales and man” must place his energy directly to containment of the pollutant and not more research.

I’m not critical of the report or its important discoveries, yet it brings to mind some current misguided demands of people regarding arsenic in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Of note in the newspaper article is the absence of finding arsenic as a serious contaminate. Normal levels are arsenic have beneficial effects of life. To all interested in the environment: please embrace HORMESIS as an important part of scientific research. Dosage and duration belong in all serious discussions. Grow up and embrace the true scientific approach to complex environmental issues. Precious money continues to be wasted on ideas with little or no benefits. Our venerable company is under attack.

The water permitting blunders committed by carelessness, ignorance or on purpose, (however great the mistakes made), cannot be so great as it would be not to recognize that someone has been in error; however ugly they may be, mistakes become elements in development for future business. Blunders were made.

While doing research on this website (NEWS Topic) an article on page three caught my eye. Following is a short part of the article:
SUMMARY OF WORLD WIDE MINING - By Michael M. Miller 04/18/2003.
Click it for some solid history relevant for today's mining.

"Since all of our mining properties are located in California, much of this survey has limited value; however I conclude my summary with the following observations. The respondents consider regulatory duplication and inconsistencies as a strong deterrent to exploration investment greatest in Russia. California is the third worst location only above Russia and Wisconsin. California ranks third from the bottom regarding environmental regulations, slightly ahead of Washington and Wisconsin.

A statistic worth intellectual pondering was a mathematical table of respondents who indicate factors that encourage exploration investment. A comparison of the percentages found in the column for "Mineral Potential Assuming Current Regulations" and "Mineral Potential Assuming No Land Use Restrictions" places California as the geographical political entity surveyed with the highest percent difference between the two columns at 68%. Go figure.

It will prove helpful for individuals considering an investment in remoter or exotic lands to have at least a base understanding of political stability, infrastructure, labor relations, regulations and restrictions. For me, it is only a tangential interest. One undeniable truth about a mining company is it cannot move its mineral deposit to a more favorable location. I like California, especially now that most mining companies view the state near the bottom of desirability. Mister Pocket, we're breaking rock to find you."

Hi Rick, nice to see you on the Forum again.

Yes, you began this thread September 12, 2006. I encourage all with curiosity about this little mine that keeps on keeping on to click page eleven, scroll to its beginning and read to the present.

A lot of surface quartz calls your name. Best to you, Mike
