Call to action….Virginia

Call to action: A miner in Virginia reached out to us on a proposal in that state to evaluate the activity of gold mining in the state and determine if it should be basically regulated out of existence.

Correction on Alaska claims

Correction on Alaska claims: My mistake…..when I was speaking with the owner of the claims in Alaska, he mentioned Nome and in my mind I apparently heard “they are in Nome”, which they are not. The claims, 4 of them are about 80 miles from Nome on the Kougarok River. There is a decent road […]

Our trip to Washington DC is postponed due to Corona virus.

We have avoided posting about the Corona virus because well…we don’t want to add to the hysteria.   However, we have been informed our trip to Washington DC is being postponed to a few months down the road.   We find it rather amazing that grocery stores are being stripped of their products….although it makes […]

Outstanding read on mining law

We’ve read a lot of publications over the years on the legality and history of filing mining claims, both patented and non-patented. This is perhaps the most comprehensive we’ve read to date.
