Suction Dredging OPEN for business in Siskyou County.
This is from Dave McCracken who is one of the primary people fighting and funding the litigation for small miners over suction dredging in CA.
We need to give Dave credit for getting (in writing no less) the Siskyou County D.A. to openly state dredging is open now in that county . We plan to take this good news to the counties in the South Mother Lode immediately with the intent of having them follow suit.
This is great news and just think if we can get the other Sheriff’s on board, the economy of these counties will once again flourish with the influx of small miners supporting the small businesses ravaged by the moratorium……..which has never been about fish.
From Dave McCracken:
We have just come into written correspondence from the District
Attorney of Siskiyou County which is rejecting to prosecute
suction dredgers without a permit as a result of the recent
Third Appellate published Decision. This should go a long way
towards prompting California to establish a reasonable set of
regulations and permitting system in time for our 2015 season.
Watch for more on this in our November newsletter.
I want to thank everyone who has been responding to my requests
for more participation in our ongoing fund-raiser which will
end this coming Friday with 3 ounces of my gold nuggets to be
The really good news is that Jeff Kuykendall, owner of Proline
dredges, is so impressed with our efforts, he has offered up one
of his brand new Super 4-inch suction dredges as a prize to be
used in our New 49’ers Legal fund-raising efforts.
That’s a $4,800 dredge! Garret Electronics has also offered up a
great prize! We are really on a roll!
So how about this for an incentive: If we receive 100 or more
legal contributions between now and the close of business this
coming Friday, 31 October, we will offer the 4-inch Proline
dredge as our grand prize in the next legal drawing which takes
place on 27 February, along with twenty 10th-ounce American Gold Eagles.
Come on, you guys; let’s celebrate our our wins by making this the
most productive legal fund-raiser we have ever done!
You can find out more about the gold nuggets we are giving away this
Friday, and how to contribute, by going here:
Thanks very much for all your support, you guys!
