Short Newsletter today as I am in the booth selling Emeralds for the weekend. I have a couple of links for you. The first one is about the proposed changes to the mining law that will affect you. http://www.icmj.com/article.php?id=56&keywords=Rahall_Proposes_Bill_to_End_All_Mining_in_the_U.S. HR 699 Mining law proposal
As proposed now, anything over panning or hand sluicing would no longer be considered “casual”, and will be subjected to additional regulations, bonding, and plans of operation whether on your own claim, someone else’s, or open areas. Remember, this is not passed yet, but proposed and still in committee. If you have an opinion about it, you should contact your representatives in the congress and let them know what you would like tem to do.
Here is a link to a page that gives a good explanation of the difference between owning physical gold and one of the ETF’s or gold owned on paper. http://www.sprott.com/pdf/marketsataglance/MAAG.pdf
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO GET INFORMATION OFF OF THE PANNING TIPS AND BUCKET CLASSIFIER PAGE. The page is still not working and I will have to find the path I have not included in it before it will. I did not build the last one, so I have to do some trial and error to get it to work. Requests are coming in daily, but the e-mail address you send me and the information you want is not coming in with the email. I have a broken link somewhere I have to find. Thanks for your patience.
Well, that’s it for me. I have a reader who sent me some information on Jefferson County open space rules on prospecting, so I will be getting that up on the proper page this next week. Much easier to do than the form. LOL! Have a great weekend and a great week!
