The idea of a tech company coughing up $8.5 million to buy the controlling interest in a gold mine, which is totally outside their area of expertise, boggles my mind.

C.W.,

Although I believe money could be made at the 16 to 1 mine by offering train rides and additional mine tours, I recognize your point about the location being rather "off the beaten track", so to speak. I have never been to the mine, but it sounds like quite a drive even just from Auburn.

I also strongly agree with your skepticism concerning Quartzview. Where in the world can we ever find someone with as much knowledge and experience with this mine than what Michael Miller has? That's gonna be a tough row to hoe. It almost seems to me like Michael in not replaceable.

Regards,
Fred M. Cain

My guess is the tracks and ore cart system will stay in place. I know very little about mining, but it seems like it would be prohibitively expensive to replace all of that.
Ore cart rides for the public sounds great, I would do that immediately. But Allegheny is in the middle of nowhere and they get maybe one tourist a month, if that. Plus, it’s a disaster from a liability and insurance standpoint.

Perhaps someone in the know could elaborate on Quartzview’s plans for the mine? I am a bit skeptical about some silicon valley company coming in and thinking they have a better idea whilst ignoring 150 years of underground mining knowledge and experience.
