We are only a week away from our outing down in La Panza, near Paso Robles at The Contender claim. Catered dinner for those who sign up, metal detecting hunt, great gold and thousands of dollars in prizes for our raffle. This event is open to the public, as our claim is as well and […]
We received this message yesterday from some friends and fellow miners we have in South Dakota. Read the absurdity in what the USFS is saying, and doing here folks. “Hey Shannon, wanted to give you a heads up that the us forest service in south dakota is starting to prohibit miners from working their claims. […]
We are back from our vacation now and ready to get back to work on some major issues on our plate: USFS and Italian Bar disaster. We sent a certified letter along our partners, Blue Ribbon Coalition demanding answers on why the USFS doesn’t clear this designated recreation area from the trash and squatters […]
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.

NOME ALASKA DREDGE CLAIMS ADDED TO AMRA! We have confirmed the addition of 4 dredge claims in Nome Alaska. These are very good river claims just outside of town a few miles. Available for dredging with up to a 6″, or with an additional permit (about $50) you can use an 8″!. Man-O-Man……that is cool!
We have just had a claim owner donate access to yet another claim. This one is in Howland Flat in NorCal above Slate Creek. We mined this area about 6 or 7 years ago with great results. Also……we are in discussions for some Alaska claims! Stay tuned!
Italian Bar disaster update, Stanislaus National Forest Tuolumne County CA: We have confirmed this past weekend that all but one of the squatters down in the recreation area have decided it is in their best interest to vacate the area (at some urging). The one man we had the confrontation with on film is […]

In answer to the question we posed yesterday on which state AMRA has the most complaints about access, interference with mining, road closures, USFS and other issues, 5 of the 77 comments we received were correct. Montana is home….by far to the most complaints of all the states in the Union. Oregon is likely number […]
