SFCW Update

Update:   Yes folks, we are aware of the article out of Spokane which appears to be distributed by the Lewiston far left media. Our thoughts…pffft.

South Fork Clearwater update, Saturday July 28th

Update from the South Fork Clearwater, Saturday July 28, 2018   No miners were cited yesterday. Brooks Beegle (the LEO) was given another “stand down” order citing officer safety.

A quick update on some issues:

Update on some current issues:   We are packing today for our trip to Idaho and the South Fork Clearwater. We have been informed the USFS is not backing down on their ridiculous assertion that suction dredgers must pull a Plan of Operations (PoO). This is not, by law required and they are also claiming […]
