  2. Here's your chance to be heard, or at least attempt to be heard by someone who makes the decisions. The BLM is accepting comments and holding meetings RE: the Black Canyon corridor travel plan. Speak up or forever hold your peace, and apply for your NOI and/or POO to exercise your right to access gold country. Later...Jim P. https://sharetrails....anagement-plan/

  4. Hi all, some good news and some bad news: Good news, the "wildlands" initiative has been de-funded in the most recent version of the FY2011 budget. http://thewesterner.blogspot.com/2011/04/wild-lands-initiative-defunded-in-final.html I'm sure this is just a temporary setback for those wanting to lock the public out of public lands and the public domain, but it at least slows them down. The bad news, the budget still includes 205 million dollars for land acquisition by the various Federal land management agencies. Later...Jim P. H.R.1473 Department of Defense and Full-Year Conti

  6. Finally, it appears we have a friend on the US House Natural Resources Committee; Doc Hastings, newly elected Republican Representative from Washington State. From what I've heard and read so far,he is truly a western conservative who understands the nature and importance of private property rights, the true value in our natural resources, and the destructiveness of our governments over regulation of both. I first learned of Doc on the Hugh Hewitt radio program back in January and liked what I heard. He says the things most of us are thinking and/or posting about the various Federal land mana
  7. Thanks for the update Driller, that's about the time I last heard from/of him. I'm hoping Potholes Bob will chime in also, if memory serves, RD, PHs and Van used to hunt together. Later...Jim P.

  9. Hi all, I recieved what I believe is one of those scam email today from Van Cowan, "Apologies for having to reach out to you like this, but I made a trip early this week to London, UK and had my bags stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds without my credit card, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds
  10. Hi all, here's our chance to make our voices heard before we loose more rights and more mineral lands. The National Forest service is requesting public input on collecting public input regarding "specific forest landscapes", and "special places"; in other words, pick any place you don't want loggers, miners, ranchers, hunters, off roaders Etc, and we'll block them for you. Keep in mind, they are asking for comments on if and how to collect public comments, not actual comments related to those areas mentioned above (confusing I know, but that's our Government at it's best) One idea that comes t
  11. Hi Chris, like Bob posted, not much info on nuggets specifically. This site might help: USGS mineral data Just search Argentina and gold; there are more than one hundred recorded deposits for gold. Click on the record number on the left for more detailed info. Good luck and let us know how it goes. Later...Jim P.
  12. Hi Mike,any updates? I sent a letter to my Senator and both Reps along with Senator Sylvia Allen, As usual, Senator allen was the only one to respond, and she's not even my Senator. I first met Sylvia through the "People For The West", She's always on the side of public use, private property owners, Miners and ranchers. Here's a copy of the letter; if anyone cares to use part or all of it feel free. Senator Burns, I was saddened to discover that the Governor has announced the end of the Mine and Mineral Museum. I can't begin to describe how strongly I feel that this is a mistake and a dis
  13. Did anyone attend any of the Coronado NF planning meetings???? Wednesday the 3rd was the important one for Greaterville, but there are few left if you missed the first ones. Coronado NF planning meetings Here's a link to the plan draft; http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coronado/plan-revision/documents/DraftForestPlan/Coronado_WorkingDraftForestPlan_March2010-Black&WhiteMaps.pdf Notice how far down the contents list you have to go to get to anything related to multi Use, probably not a mistake.

  14. Hi John, try these on for size. Taken directly from Title 36: Parks, Forests, and Public Property Subpart 228.4 section 1 Current as of 25 Feb 2010. Here's a link to the full text: Title 36 (1) A notice of intent to operate is not required for: (i) Operations which will be limited to the use of vehicles on existing public roads or roads used and maintained for National Forest System purposes; (ii) Prospecting and sampling which will not cause significant surface resource disturbance and will not involve removal of more than a reasonable amount of mineral deposit for analysis and study whic
