Re: highbanking rules

Thanks for posting their reply Jim. Now there can be no question if it is legal or not and miners don't have to keep guessing and asking others. Miners will never overcome this travesty unless and until they realize what our enemies have already discovered and used; it involves organization and pers...

Face Mask Safety from OSHA

Given California governor Newsome's recent requirement saying that people are required to wear a face mask when in public, I thought we might look at what OSHA has to say about face mask safety.

Re: highbanking rules

That is a difficult one to speak to Jim. As you know, the rules say "no mechanized" equipment within 300 feet of the river, it may be hard to argue that the high banker is outside of the limit, while the pump is at the waters edge. My poor old brain says that the pump is part of the operation, so th...

The passing of a dear friend

I am posting this at the request of Rusty. Montine lost her fight on 5/23 with the cancer that kept her out of the office for the last year. She fought to the very end but was just out matched. Thank you everyone that donated, called and specifically the friends that were able to visit with her. She...

Does the new rules allow motorized equipment in the rivers?
I don't know Gerald, I have not read the whole thing. I guess you will just have to read it.

Re: Water Boards Adopted Permit Scheme

Jim my friend, I did not write what I wrote to discourage anyone.

Re: Water Boards Adopted Permit Scheme

This is an afterthought, but I thought I would post it. I'll give you a short version and then a longer one to give an example. The short version is simply this: It is not only alright, but acceptable and lawful to agency officials to lie. Longer version: Back in 2004-2005 when we miners were fighti...

They use the same old agency buzz words and phrases and we use the same old arguments. Our arguments are based in science, but it just do...
