In January of 2018, I mail the following letter to our State of California appointed water board. It follows the required information, which included a notice to the Central Valley Regional Water Control Board (CVRWQCB). Our splendid attorney, Klaus Kolb, and I spoke at a CVRWQCB meeting in Rancho Cordova addressing allegations and misinformation presented to the seven board members by staff. Staff, in this case, are well meaning and poorly prepared youthful attorneys working as “the prosecution team”. Strange, I know, but indicative of how certain public servants are taught their job. (Follow the money to find the power and objectives.)

You will find Original Sixteen to One Mine response to our treatment (also sent to the State Board) on the Forum under topic “Water and Arsenic: which came first?” submitted 01/26/18. My position as president required it; however as a Californian I have the right to be heard and wrote the following as a Concerned American. You should be concerned as well.


State Water Resources Control Board January 8, 2018
1001 I Street
Sacramento, CA 95814


Dear Members of the Board,

The Porter Cologne Act passed in California legislation as solutions of water quality, conservation, control and utilization. What water issues troubled elected officials, industries and businesses in the 1960’s? Fundamental observations, conditions, predictions and downright speculations contributed to this law. It was justified according to give and take actions by Californians for the benefit of Californians: protected for use and enjoyment by the people of the state. The Legislature declared regulations shall be reasonable, considering all demands made on our water quality and considering the total values involved, beneficial and detrimental economic and social, tangible and intangible. Development projects were growing in scope and size; however the law specifically cites factors of precipitation, topography, population, recreation, agriculture, industry and economics shall apply.

The law established a State Board and regional boards. They shall conform to and implement the policies of Chapter 1, (policy) at all times of the Act. Water quality objectives mean the limits or levels of water quality constituents or characteristics which are established for the reasonable protection of beneficial uses of water. The first item listed for a water quality control plan is: (1) Beneficial uses to be protected. The intent of the Legislature is unequivocal: waste or contamination must create a hazard to the public health through poising or the spread of disease.

One key in the Legislative and administration process was science. Science began and drove concepts and words that eventually were passed by our Senate and Assembly. Science, after all, is knowledge, understood facts or principles. Knowledge is gained by systematic observations, experiment, and reasoning; knowledge is coordinated, arranged, and systematized. Its goal is the prosecution of truth thus known, both in the abstract and as an historical development.

What John Stuart Mill wrote 160 years ago holds true today: “Since all phenomena which have been sufficiently examined are found to take place with regularity, each having certain fixed conditions, positive and negative, on the occurrence of which it invariably happens, mankind has been able to ascertain the conditions of the occurrence of many phenomena. The progress of science mainly consists in ascertaining these conditions. Science is nothing but the finding of analogy, identity in the most remote parts of the subject.” There is no science involved with the enforcement of the current CVRWQCB in Rancho Cordova, California.

In science, you must not talk before you know. In art, you must not talk before you do. In literature, you must not talk before you think. In government all three apply to our public agencies, public employees, elected and appointed officials. Science persists with the knowledge of things, whether ideal or substantial. Art works the modification of substantial things by our substantial power. Literature brings to the mind the modification of ideal things by our ideal power. All are lacking with the Prosecution Team, the Administration Team, most of the Board members and the Executive Team.

The work of the true masters of Science is a perpetual striving after a better and closer knowledge of their environment from the planet on which their lot is cast and the universe in the vastness of which our planet is lost. CVRWQCB execution of the Porter Cologne act has become an illegal taker of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness with no sense of support from Science, Art or Literature. It’s good and worthwhile intent turned into a sham, nothing more than a trick put upon the public. It has become evil that lacks any bearing on its expectations. The people should fear the destroying of long standing public and private benefits of our water. If the environment is sought to be defended or pressured for the safety and benefits of Californians, some advocates and some enforcers twist, ignore and lie. It is a sham and the goodness we know and expect will be lost for future generations. The actions I witnessed at the December 8, 2017, public CVRWQCB hearing will alarm Californians as I was alarmed.

Porter- Cologne Water Quality Control Act is the law. It preempts all other plans, such as the Valley Basin plan. Its importance in Californian’s behaviors patterns the relationships between the Constitution of the United States of American and the Constitution of the State of California. Law has definitions: recognize shame answers, sham defenses, and sham pleas. The entire agenda item on December 8, 2017, was so clearly shameful, in fact, presenting no substantial issue. It is make believe to assert that natural waters traveling through the Alleghany aquifers, above and underground, produce harmful conditions to public health. An historical mantra holds true here in Sacramento: “We must have a case that we do not sham fallacies upon the people for current reason.”

Fear of this material (natural elements for life) and native water precipitating high in the Sierra Nevada mountains is a pretense for highjacking industrial freedom and rights, justify employment for the prosecutors, fatten self-serving appetites, and is illegal, immoral and against both State and Federal Constitutions. “Truth, like gold, lies at the bottom.”

In reference to the degree of specialization on display during this public meeting, the sciences may be arranged as follows:
(A) Mathematics, the study of relations of the parts of hypothetical constructions, involving no observation of facts, but only of the creations of our own minds, having two branches – (1) pure mathematics, where the suppositions are arbitrary and (2) applied mathematics, where the hypothesis as simplifications of real facts – and branching again into (a) mathematical philosophy, as the theory of probabilities, etc. (b) mathematical physics, as analytical mechanics, etc. and (c) mathematical physics, as political economy.
(B) Philosophy, the examination of and logical analysis of a general body of fact is a science in which reason and history precedes successful dealing with special elements of the universe – branching into (1) logic and (2) metaphysics.
(C) Nomology, the science of the most general laws or uniformities, having two main branches – (1) psychology and (2) general physics.
(D) Chemistry, the determination of physical constants and the study of the different kinds of matter in which these constants differ.
(E) Biology, the study of a peculiar class of substances, the protoplasms, and of the kinds of organisms into which they grow.
(F) Sciences of organization of organisms, embracing (1) physiology, the science of the working of the psychical structures of organs and (2) sociology, the science of psychical unions, especially modes of human society, including ethics, linguistics, politics, etc.

No science was on display by the Prosecution Team, the Advisory Team or other public employees. My wonderment is that the seven board members voted six to one in support of the staff with so little knowledge of what they were voting for. Science is nothing but the finding of analogy, identity in the most remote parts of the subject: water. “The work of the true man of Science is a perpetual striving after a better and closer knowledge of the planet on which his lot is cast, and of the universe in the vastness of which that planet is lost.” –J.N. Lockyer. What science triggers the serious efforts across the spectrum of living in our Golden State? What is the duty of water?

Terms contain some qualification to denote that it must not be excessive are to be based in science. The buzz ‘word’ has become ppb. The word "reasonable" being considerably used in law is not used now in science: reasonable in care and diligence, reasonable in economic evaluations (cost/benefits), reasonable unavoidable. This board lacks an understanding of reason because the staff either fails to know or withholds important information (exculpatory evidence or statements which tend to clear Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc. from alleged fault or guilt). The duty of water is found not to be a constant factor for all places but varies with the character of natural surroundings, climatic conditions, diversification of environments and various other conditions.

Kanaka Creek does not present a water quality problem for fish, plant life or aquatic insects. No one suffers a beneficial loss downstream from the ancient 21 portal. During the meeting the question, “What is the full definition of serious?” was brushed aside by staff. The proper action for the Board to take at this meeting was to table the topic and send it back to staff for review and clarification on the issues raised by Operator. The insistence that it could not take this action is weak.

I am aggrieved by the action at the December 8, 2017 CVWQCB meeting.

I file this petition for review with the State Water Board.
I hereby attach to this petition by reference the three attachment filed by Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc. as support for my request for the petition. I have suffered great financial losses due to the ongoing behavior if CVRWQCB in the Kanaka Creek watershed. I have suffered great mental strain and harassment.

A copy of this request is given to the US Postal office in Alleghany today, addressed to the CVRWQCB in Rancho Cordova. Presenting new and accurate information and delivering true and scientific information regarding the issues under review by CVRWQCB in order to preserve, protect and enhance the regional environment both naturally and socially are not a choice but a right and a public responsibility.

Sincerely,

END OF LETTER

The State Board scheduled a closed meeting this week. Any predictions on the outcome?

A shift in the too long held environmental belief that man must not work the forest but leave it alone is gaining steam. All the fires in California and other states support why the under-story in our forests must be attacked with vigor and common sense. Sierra County is a prime place to take positive action and a new approach to funding is working.

I send an east coast writer the following letter. No reply. Check out a plan called O-zone investment. It is getting a bad rap by some like Mr. Kuttner

August 1, 2018
Dear Mr. Kuttner,

What a surprise to open and read your August 1, 2018 article, “About that Capital Gains Scam!” Yesterday, a longtime pal (Stanford grad, three years older than you and two years older than I) called to tell me about a fresh program that would be great for Sierra County and California in general. He cited a Forbes article and said he would mail the article to me. Yes, I found that Sierra County was included in the nationwide qualifying locations. A google search led to the opportunity zone concept, and how it would work. I was very excited because money in all forms is absent from Sierra County.

Three presidents you rubbed up against would likely back this plan: Woodrow Wilson, John Kennedy and Jimmy Carter. I want you to also revisit the proposal, provide constructive input and help move it along. My economic views resemble yours, liberal and progressive; both mirror our sentiments and convictions; however we arrived there on diverse paths.

I’m a fifth generation Californian, born and raised in Sacramento. My schooling ended with a BA from UCSB class of ’64. After graduating, I designed, built and ran a college hangout, selling more beer between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Our room with six coin operated pool tables was going all the time. The volleyball court was unique; so were the rock-n roll bands, fully clothed collegiate go-go dancers, affordable food and old time movies. My economics major was tempered with sociology and geography minors. Thankfully, the only real values that helped me throughout my business life were very simple and understandable: laws of supply & demand, dynamics of scale, laws of diminishing return.

Five years saturated my brain and I wanted out of dealing with the public. In 1974, with a desire to return to Northern California, I stumbled into a dinosaur like opportunity: gold mining in the high Sierra Mountain Range. After much study (helped when our federal government lifted the restrictions on gold price and ownership) I decided to give it five years. That was in 1975. I’m still an underground gold miner, running the oldest US gold corporation.

My only purpose in writing you is to gain your ear on this very progressive idea floating around Congress. My background, experience and training in high use of capital are in natural resources. America needs domestic resource production and it needs a new industry based for the blue collar youth. Capital moving into forest restoration and related areas is a progressive thought that the three presidents mentioned before would support. If our current President did the same, the benefits from supporting well selected opportunity zone make my heart beat faster. It very well will do the same for you. If not, please tell me you got my note. Thanks.

Sincerely,
Michael Meister Miller, President

With a growing interest in gold, I’m spending time compiling Sixteen to One data from old records and hours of work. Geologists and others are looking for mining opportunities and information. The letter below isn’t one for those interests; however, I snorted after reading parts of it. Bill Murphy is Chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee. He exposes the manipulations within the precious metal industry. I saw this letter and the line, “The public will get another hosing in a couple of years as others pedal their stories” came true.



March 23, 2009
Dear Bill,

We spoke when you were looking for plaintiffs in your lawsuit against Blanchard. I said okay, but I guess our company was not needed. I would have been proud to be a party to your exposure of fraud or collusion.

I still am President and now our company has become both the oldest U.S. gold mining corporation and the longest producer of gold in North America. It has not been an easy trip. Nevertheless, I look forward to every day and am positive that gold has a solid future for another decade or so.

I tried to participate in Le Metropole Café. It was very unsuccessful. I notified you by e-mail at least three times over the past eighteen months of the troubles but heard nothing back. I had signed up for a trial membership. It was a technical disaster that never got solved. For a year or longer after signing up, I continue to get e-mail notifications from Le Metropole, but I have no password or ability to open them. I wrote explanations to your web master to give me a real trial or stop sending these worthless e-mails but nothing happened. Will you look into it, please?

The gold sector is different from thirty/twenty years ago. Events will not duplicate. Interest has waned. My involvement dates to 1974. As a real gold producer, a junior at that, I see very few articles about how to evaluate the small companies. I don’t find the articles about the large companies that compelling either. (I broke bread with past presidents of three of the big companies and rubbed elbows with many small company executives.) Right now I have little hope for true improvement in the Big Guys, the analysts, promoters or newsletter writers. The public will get another hosing in a couple of years as others pedal their stories. The past has hurt those who actually take the risks of gold mining, something the owners and management of Sixteen to One mine have done in the last three centuries. You have a tool to help the real gold miners and a naive public. I would like to learn more about Le Metropole Café and perhaps become an educator, not to shamelessly promote but to combat ignorance.

If you have the time, please give me a call, check out the FORUM on our web site or if you have no time or interest, please tell your web master to quit sending me emails that I cannot access. Hope the best for you and your publication.

Sincerely, Michael M. Miller
