SECOND YEAR, APRIL 2019 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 33, NUMBER 2
Dave McCracken's Publication
One of the most necessary advantages of joining or being a member of The New 49 is you could participate in all organized weekend group mining tasks free of charge and hold an equal share of our recovering gold
We’ve been supporting these tasks yearly since 1987, once we found that many or most members wanted direct publicity to successful gold mine tasks, so that they will go out and find gold in our huge gold in the Klamath River and its tributaries in northern California
Learn what discovering and creating wealthy gold deposits is a good basis. But there isn’t a option to exit with extremely experienced explorers and take part in a successful mining project. Really see how methods and processes work very invaluable to the learning curve. Nevertheless, the most essential part of these tasks is that everyone gets goal actuality and confidence that there are really top quality gold deposits when you only comply with a primary sampling plan.
Thankfully, we have now fairly a few skilled members who need to come out on weekends with us and help much less experienced members study the basics once we present aggressively a invaluable gold deposit. We attempt to seek out one that’s close to the floor, so we don't have to dig very deep. Then we be a part of together for about three hours of onerous work so we will restore as a lot gold as potential. We had about 45 members in this project, including 10 or more volunteer assistants.
I want to thank my fortune for the volunteer members related to these weekends. There's no strategy to handle tasks with so many people. I feel the largest weekend group we ever had was about 207 members. It's not a group. It's a military! Even with many helpers I had to buy a megaphone to communicate with so many people along the river!
This project was designed in our Sluice Box function, which takes about four km from the River Klamath slightly below the small town of Seiad. It is about 20 miles upstream of Comfortable Camp, headquartered. We've made Sluice Box obtainable to members since the late 1980s. The function is all the time which produces properly for goat mining. It’s because it replenishes the winters of their low gold deposits from giant storm streams. We have now supported fairly a few group tasks at Sluice Box with each suction and digging low gold beside the river.
For many years, there have been numerous goldsmiths in the Sluice Box and an lively waterway. As shown under, the property continues to supply good results. That is additionally true in the similar places that we’ve excavated earlier.
The rationale we selected Sluice Field for this journey is that the latest gold identification I was aware of occurred towards the prime of the property throughout the 2017 season and was prolonged to the beginning of the 2018 season.
In 2017, the strike group had so much power that struck me once I went there to see, I received a clear impression that I might make a group of good members shocked if I steered dozens when dozens of new members are close to the weekend project. Gold has virtually nothing to do with this. Should you haven't had a "golden fever" yet, it's just because you haven't found sufficient gold. It solely is sensible that if (if) you’re on the lookout for a wealth of pure wealth; You need to get well as much from yourself as you’ll be able to. Usually, you don't need to share your deposit with the entire world.
The only time I get members of a chilly shoulder from a river once they have discovered one thing really good and don't want a entire bunch of others shifting around. We’ve got rules that shield deposit members so they can spend time creating the website and don't have to worry about others jumping over them.
As a new 49's chief, I’ve to comply with our guidelines greater than anybody else. Nonetheless, because it is good for different members, and helps hold your payments paid; I am personally serious about finding out what number of members might be brought into high-quality gold deposits when they are discovered. That’s the reason typically some members hold secret that the just lately found rich gold data a secret (which is inconceivable to do). To be able to discover them, we just have to take a look at the number of members flocking previous their nice gold qualities.
The factor is that prime high quality gold follows a continuous path over 100 kilometers from the Klamath River. So when a wealthy discovery is made, I can often organize an skilled sampling workforce to find the similar excessive-high quality extension by taking samples from the prime and downstream along the similar path, even to the similar layer that pays for the streambed material. If we will't do that without discovering different members, we have now many other places.
I knew that a small gold rush at the prime of Sluice Box is at the finish of the 2017 season. The self and a few assistants launched their boat to see what they discovered, and see if it might be practical to make the last weekend of the project a respectable distance after the strike. Because it turned out, there was a long river line along the strike. But the errors I obtained from the lively members have been that at the very least some of them would have been dissatisfied if we had moved there.
I've discovered that it has led The New 49 & # 39; about 35 years. by no means shouldn’t be a good concept to arrange mining tasks or do your personal mining close to an lively strike, where all or some of the present members are emotionally above the gold they find. That's why we did one thing else in our ultimate project this season.
In 2018, we returned to the Sluice Box and located solely a few members who mined the aspect edge of the river street to the prime. As I stated, after the preliminary strike, there’s still a long stretch that has not yet been shown or mined. These members have been as friendly as they might, and actually inspired us to do the project there anyplace we needed. They showed us the gold they have been recovering from the very shallow flowing material along the river, and even out to the river so far as they might get. The gold was pretty good!
Once we launched the boat and all the gear to help this project, all or most of the members who have been already in the Sluice Box helped us pack the gear into the website and set it up. They went so far as to point out us the gold they have been recovering and the actual gold layer. This was nice! That meant we already had a gold attack earlier than we began the project!
We could have a Saturday morning assembly to present to everyone, especially project assistants. Then, in the morning, I will introduce myself to a table of how gold deposits on waterways and how one can comply with a easy sampling plan that goes step by step straight into top quality gold. Then after lunch we go out to the website and spend the afternoon doing gold bullion samples to verify the gold deposit we all work collectively for several hours on Sunday morning.
These tasks have two objectives on Saturday afternoon. The primary is to ensure that everybody is ready to put the gold right. The rationale for that is that in the event you can't guess on gold without dropping anything, you possibly can't take samples of wealthy gold deposits. Sampling is a course of that permits you to discover and develop wealthy gold deposits. So gold-panning is just about the first necessary step in the studying curve. The second aim of Saturday afternoon is to strengthen the wealthy gold deposit that we all work collectively on Sunday.
Saturday afternoon there wasn't long earlier than virtually everyone recovered from a good gold show of their pans. Our assistants devoted themselves to freshmen to help their panning expertise
The introduction of these tasks requires that I ship virtually all administrative duties to our assistants. John Rose is chargeable for the complete outside program. This frees me from taking footage and video to inform the story of the creation of the month-to-month publication
Dickey Melton enjoys most of our floating recovery system and ensures that each one the wage dust is fed to the right velocity. By this I mean as quick as we will overload the reefs (gold traps in the restoration system) and keep away from dropping gold that everybody has worked so arduous to dig. Listed here are some of the videos we took from Dicke by displaying the way it's carried out:
Diane Peirce is known as "Our Golden Girl". He locations all the gold we get back on Sunday, inside a good plastic jug with a rotating, lockable lid. The gold concern is that when you don't cope with it and take it into consideration as soon as it’s returned from the country, gold will discover some type of loss. This is undoubtedly true!
Diane Helgesen is a long-term supporter who will never forget the risk of volunteering at any of the new 49 occasions. You by no means met a happier or more loyal individual. He additionally adds humor and fun to collective collective chemistry. He took the "golden girl" duty for this project. He also works with me to report footage and movies. Whenever you notice me slipping from my extra critical conduct to the digital camera and scattering smile (typically even laughing), you realize it is because Diane is behind the digital camera that provides fun to what is in any other case a critical exercise for me.  There are several explanation why I personally take these tasks significantly critically, although they’re principally enjoyable and entertaining for everyone else. Some of this is because of the have to comply with the rules to avoid issues for native officers. There are additionally so many people in rocks and water, and occasional accidents happen that isn’t good good. That is often executed with somebody dropping their stability and descending into the rocks.
Maybe the most necessary cause I take these tasks significantly is that the ultimate cleansing steps and the gold distribution on Sunday afternoon are my duty. Everyone is working exhausting there. Most individuals on Sunday afternoon have had sufficient publicity to used processes which are already conscious that the search is a hit or bypass program. There are moments once you don't get an excessive amount of. I have been informed in infinite occasions that individuals are proud of training and publicity to gold exploration, and don’t actually care about how a lot gold they obtain in what we get well. However from the long expertise I know is rather more satisfying to everybody in the event that they go out on Sunday afternoon, with a nice share of their gold-shown efforts. Different nicely-devoted contributors participate on this, but the final duty for this occurring will come to my ft
These tasks have numerous common assistants; too many names right here. But I’ve to admit Craig Colt and Derek Eimer, who are maybe our most critical gold searchers. Laura Bagley and Scott Coleman are additionally local members wanting virtually yearly, except if the snow is just too deep to permit entry to the flowed material. Nancy Aberg will always remember the weekend program, though she has to journey 100 kilometers on each roads over windy roads to hitch us. Ray Derrick from Arizona also joined this project. Many years glided by when Ray never forgot one weekend project
We'll end pretty early on Saturday afternoon, so we will freshen up and prepare for the Grange Corridor, starting at 18.30. Gold panning was so productive this Saturday; a number of individuals have been still troublesome once I returned to Completely satisfied Camp. For some of the members, the gold they recuperate on Saturday afternoon is the first gold they ever recovered. Some individuals never get rid of the golden journey along the river. As an alternative, they may get torches to assist their panning work late into the night time.
In any case, a comfortable camp at the Grange Corridor Completely happy Camp had a full home. There was a lot of delicious meals there. The storm of thrilling conversations was so loud; it spent some quiet time in the room so I might tell everyone that dinner was full. We’ve got a quantity of local members who’ve both moved to Joyful Camp or spent a minimum of the entire summer time season there. Many of these individuals have already made weekend tasks, so we'll solely see them in the workplace once they are available or on Saturday. All lively members are invited to hitch our group to dig on Sunday morning.
We begin to dig the group early on Sunday morning; often around 6:30 am. An important cause for that is the completion of the physical workforce earlier than the day's warmth reaches our workplace. Once I came to Sluice Field, virtually everybody else was already working. Everybody already knew on what layer gold was gold. This time the reward was instantly on the streambed. It was straightforward to dig this manner
We had already arrange and chosen our floating recovery system on Saturday, so Dickey was ready for the first bucket as quickly as he arrived.
Our workforce's assistants shortly organized the groups into teams in order that they might perform the needed features to get a constant hearth in the return techniques. Underneath John's attentive eye, the individuals are sorted into excavators that fill the plastic buckets in roughly half strategy to hold them too heavy to pack the rocks at the stop. The material then passes by way of the score display. The long-term help individual, Mark Turner, created the ¼ inch classifier that we use in these tasks. On this method, we remove giant-sized supplies (mainly rocks) that don’t have to be fed into the recovery methods. Here it is in the video:
Another workforce is screening to categorise the categorized salary into giant plastic tubes. Then the others fill the buckets with categorised wage dust and stroll down the materials where it may be moved to the floating return system. Others gather empty buckets and distribute them back to the diggers. We took the following video to see how the Sunday morning was a good start:
Earlier in weekend tasks we discovered that when the wage filth is near the floor, the group project can produce a rich salary filth quicker than the floating return system can deal with it. For those who feed any gold restoration system too shortly, the golden traps will probably be buried and a few gold will disappear with the trash.
So, to have the ability to take strain on Dickey, John and Scott set up a giant modified hand loop on the river, so even more burning filth might be handled. Here is a video that I picked up from the gravel bar:
Then I went out into the water to take the pans that Scott was getting up. I can solely say that "Wow!" I didn't stay there for a long time as a result of the diggers have been about to fill the buckets that the digital camera had to splash on the rocks they threw at the river:
The production crew produced more filth than both return methods might sustain with. It isn’t unusual for these weekend tasks to have so many buckets that shouldn’t have enough time to handle it. When this happens, we invite the members to take the desired process later
Here is a typical pan that Scott Coleman confirmed me
Scott, Craig and Derek principally use panoramic models of material that totally different members dig. This is purported to name the beam, which we deal with as the richest materials we will discover out. As busy as I had seen, I didn't present a single substance that hadn't been handled. This is higher than normal. Take a look at this video that I've kidnapped Scott's mine. This was the similar material that was fed to the buckets:
We are somewhat casual on Sundays as a result of as long as we produce more burning filth than we will deal with, members are inspired to take breaks once they really feel the want, eat some food and fluids, and pretty much don’t overdo it the. Here's a abstract of what happened there on Sunday morning. As you possibly can see, issues went so properly, I was mild-minded. Diane additionally appealed to my bow; we had enjoyable there!
We stopped the manufacturing group at about 11 o'clock. As the remedy continued, the manufacturing group returned the areas that had been disturbed. They moved rocks, gravel and enrichment into the holes to return to the pure contours of the gravel bar that have been present before we started. I gathered round a dozen assistants to fill a moderately giant quarry that another person had executed in the finish and didn’t fill it. It truly took us about an hour!
Members should return the excavations when they are made. But typically, fairly giant excavations are left when members (or perhaps non-members) depart. When that occurs, we all should make a restoration so we will keep out of the dangerous record of native officers.
Cleansing the floating strip was really something to see! Above the first return lure is a half of the piercing plate. So there isn’t any approach to see how nicely we do before we clean the entire system in any case the filth has been handled. Trusted assistants have been current once we cleaned the floating resuscitation system together with some members. Test it out on this video:
The guided movement of water movement to the centralized materials of the floating restoration system permits lighter material to be washed away when a lot heavier gold remained. Seeing all that gold in the recovery system was actually a sight to see! The concern that I had enough gold to make a whole lot was, for my part, evaporated once I watched the water think about hundreds of thousands of small pure riches as we washed them into a giant plastic tube. It was quite an exhibition that reminded me of previous days once we have been capable of suck a dredge on the river!
Gold Woman was proper there with a special plastic bucket to get worthwhile gold "seals"
With little work, all the remaining gear and tools have been secured and put out safely.
Everyone was given time to loosen up and refresh. Then we met at Grange Corridor in Glad Camp later in the day.
When all or most of the members have been present in Grange already on Sunday afternoon, we showed the remaining cleaning operations by gravity methods. This is used with out the use of chemical compounds . It is rather necessary if you will make a gold search to discover ways to make the ultimate steps to separate any remaining impurities from the recovered gold. With "impurities" I mainly speak about heavy iron sand and small iron stones, which also stay in the main restoration system
Over many years, we’ve got stepped up this course of and made it obtainable to hundreds of individuals in these weekend tasks. The entire process takes a few hours, primarily as a result of we go slowly to elucidate what we do and keep away from dropping one of the gold .
All the ultimate cleaning process would take just one hour if I worked with my very own seals. The reason is that I am not apprehensive that you’ll save each gold treasure, regardless of how small. Once I permit, I refill the filling of golden bottles (uncooked wealth) as an alternative of focusing on a few (or many) small spots that don't add very nicely to the scale. However this wasn't my gold. That's why I set the additional time to ensure no worth was misplaced. This requires more time.
We give project members the opportunity to take part in these ultimate levels. Everyone is allowed to observe. This isn’t one of the packages that target the hidden room after which we'll come out later and share it with everybody. That is real small-scale gold mining, the place members may be present at every step. The worth of direct publicity to those processes cannot be underestimated. In my early levels, I had clarified most of these processes. There were lots of painful lessons along the approach. I do know that the New 49 numbers are solely the mining association in the world, displaying all the vital steps vital for a successful small-scale gold mine.
All in all, we acquired 292 gold. This is simply over 12.1 pennyweights (20 pennyweights as Troy ounces). This was about $ 800 at right now's gold worth – about three hours at work. I made a bid to maintain all the gold for myself in return for all the pizzas and beers which are vital for all individuals to have fun a successful day. But one individual was not excited about it. They all needed their shares!
So we distributed 6.four grains by weight to each of the 45 remaining individuals. For sure, producing 292 rough gold evenly over 45 individuals is a challenge in itself. it’s easier for me, as a result of I have achieved these cracks turn out to be a whole lot of occasions earlier than. More importantly, I had to endure personal confusion a number of occasions once we reached the remaining shares. I stated I needed to separate the difference from my gold collection (ouch!)
Probably the most troublesome part is to maintain the order once we give the gold shares away. The noise of Grange Hall's enthusiasm becomes virtually audible. During the early years I attempted (and failed each time) to keep everybody in control of this noise. It was unattainable! After a second I noticed that this was the enthusiastic response we needed to supply. We simply wanted to discover ways to work around it You need to settle for grateful types of appreciation, but it is going to come to you! I take a look at in this mild, I am very grateful that I’ve owned small-scale gold mine in all my grownup life and fallen in love with people who are curious about it.
we had cleaned ourselves and positioned chairs and tables in the Grange corridor. There was a lot of honest "thank you" and other type of pleasant acknowledgments once I worked slowly with my cleaning gear in my automotive. Then I retreated to my quiet house area and poured myself into a properly deserved chilly one or two… ”Whew; Another profitable weekend project! “
Right here was another time we despatched a collection of enthusiastic members with the confidence and information that prime high quality gold is on the market for inclusion in the event you only work in it.
find and restore your personal gold and separate something away, supplying you with the freedom to dictate the dictates of the misplaced governments. Gold is the ultimate foreign money that has a affordable trade worth throughout the world – as long as you possibly can management issues in order that the dangerous guys don't take it out of you.
I recommend that in case you are free enough to set real wealth in gold, you’re already much smarter than these whose solely probability of getting gold is to take it out of the relaxation.

Congratulations to all the winners!
Simply words can’t adequately describe the emotions of appreciation from all of our supporters who send your stakes to the New 49 # Legal Fund. With out you, our small scale mining business would have been to the past a few years in the past
. Silloin olemme edelleen taistelemassa vapauttaaksemme takaisin erittäin tärkeä oikeudellinen haaste, joka on asetettu nyt oikeanpuoleisen Yhdysvaltain korkeimman oikeuden kynnykselle (Bohmker v. Oregon, 903 F.3d 1029 (9. s. 2018)).
Jos et ole tehnyt jo nyt pyydämme kaikkia kannattajia lähettämään kirjeen presidentti Trumpille, hänen lakimiehelleen ja muille virkamiehilleen, pyytämällä heitä auttamaan kiinnittämään huomiota Bohmker v. Oregoniin ja kannustamaan korkeinta oikeutta tarkastelemaan asiaa uudelleen. Helppokäyttöä varten on toiminnon hälytys, jonka alla on linkki näytekirjaan, josta voit kopioida ja liittää oman kirjeen. Kirjeesi lähettämisen ajoitus on täydellinen juuri nyt! Tämä johtuu siitä, että virallinen vastaus Kalifornian vastalauseeseen on yhteisöjen tuomioistuimessa huhtikuun alussa.
Meidän pitäisi myös antaa jonkin verran toivoa ja uskoa Trumpin hallintoon. Now that the 2-yr cloud (hoax) has been lifted off of Mr. Trump, he and his staff ought to have the ability to invest extra assets into saving the as soon as very productive useful resource improvement industries which provided most of America’s continuous want for raw materials (timber, power, minerals) from our federal lands.
Largely, Mr. Trump gained the presidency on his platform of “draining the swamp” which undoubtedly exists inside American politics and continues to carry down a substantial portion of the American financial system.
It’s now turning into clear that the deep state (those very properly related individuals who are devoted to show America into a socialist nation) organized a nation-large all-out effort to deliver down our president even earlier than he gained the 2016 election – all or principally based mostly upon a false narrative. It is a sobering realization of how highly effective the deep state is when the President of the United States, even with all the assets at his disposal, might be delivered to his knees for a matter of years all because of a false narrative perpetuated by maybe half or extra of all of America’s politicians, newscasters and political activists.
Our business has been delivered to its knees by, kind of, the exact same powerful dangerous actors or their associates who have perpetuated a hoax that in-stream mining is harmful to fish, although the many research have confirmed in any other case.
This exact same tactic was used to kill America’s once thriving timber improvement business. Now, for lack of any affordable sustainable improvement, we now have huge reaches of public lands in America that have grow to be extreme hearth hazards.
With a truthful listening to in front of the U.S. Supreme Courtroom, I consider we will prove that the exact same techniques by the very same or affiliated establishments, have succeeded in disallowing trendy gold miners the use of any mechanized system to locate and develop America’s ample gold deposits (true wealth) inside 100 yards of any lively waterway (Oregon and California, with other States not far behind).
This, when there isn’t any evidence by any means to exhibit that we now have ever harmed a lot as a single fish!
We’re committed to keep preventing until either there isn’t any hope remaining, or until we win back our most elementary freedoms. As issues are, perhaps we are nearer than we have now ever been to profitable our business again in full. My fingers are crossed on each arms!
Thanks for all you guys do to help our efforts!

Action Alert: We have to Push as Onerous as We Can to Encourage the U.S. Supreme Courtroom to Evaluate Bohmker v. Oregon, 903 F.3d 1029 (9th Cir. 2018)
This case originated in Oregon and has been supported along its method principally by prospecting associations based mostly in Oregon up till the current. The case is challenging the State of Oregon’s authority to prohibit mining on the federal lands.
Many of you’ll recall that we made the last reduce in the previous session of the Excessive Courtroom just this previous yr in Rinehart v. California. The Rinehart case was difficult the State of California’s authority to prohibit mining on the federal lands. Rinehart was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Courtroom largely as a result of of the Solicitor Basic, who has the authority to offer “yes” or “no” recommendation to the high courtroom as to which of the ultimate instances must be reviewed. The Solicitor Basic advised the Courtroom to reject Rinehart largely on the grounds that this Bohmker case would soon be along, and it frames the very same arguments in a more simple manner than Rinehart.
The New 49’er Legal Fund made an preliminary substantial financial contribution to help get the Petition to the U.S. Supreme Courtroom drafted, finalized and submitted. Different individuals and mining associations are additionally contributing. That is an business-broad effort. Here is the Petition: http://www.goldgold.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Petition-for-Writ-of-Cert.-1-21-19.pdf
I gained’t go into the legal arguments right here because of time and area. Let me simply say that 150 years of case president supports our aspect. We consider that the present Excessive Courtroom will even see it our means. The problem is to get the U.S. Supreme Courtroom to assessment Bokmker. After 9+ years of painful and expensive litigation, that is the business’s last ongoing try and win our mining rights back.
Since the Solicitor Common suggested the Excessive Courtroom to reject Rinehart, our lawyer is requesting we make an all-out business-broad effort to encourage Mr. Trump to develop into involved, along with the present Solicitor Common and other officers who have an lively curiosity in mining exercise on the federal lands. Upon competent advice, we’ve added the Supreme Courtroom to the listing.
That is a letter writing campaign (postal mail). I’ve hooked up a sample letter which could be reduce and pasted into a letter of your personal – or you’ll be able to just add in the right date at the prime, your identify and handle at the bottom, an unique signature; and mail the letter to Mr. Trump. It might be very useful should you copy your last letter and send it to each of the officers listed at the backside of the letter, particularly the Solicitor Common.
Tom Kitchar, who has been President of the Waldo Mining District in southern Oregon, and who was already preventing for small-scale miners 34 years ago once I started The New 49’ers, has taken the lead position in organizing the Petition, encouraging different mining interests to file supporting briefs, and maintaining the business knowledgeable of ongoing developments. I’ve granted Tom a free hand to submit updates on our Web forum. You’ll be able to read Tom’s latest assessment right here: https://www.waldominingdistrict.org/
Our lawyer believes that tough copy letters in the mail are more likely to have a larger impression than e-mail. I agree that maybe only a single help may view an e mail, while letters from a lot of individuals have to be opened, dealt with and put into a location the place they’ll stack up for a lot of to see.
I gained’t say that this is the end of our street, as a result of there are dozens of other lawsuits between the Trump administration and numerous States over who has the controlling authority over the federal lands. The outcomes of those instances will maybe affect us in a constructive means. But this Bohmker case is the crown jewel for us; because it immediately addresses the special status and property rights afforded to miners once we make helpful discoveries on the federal lands. Different useful resource builders on the federal lands don’t possess these rights. Over a century of controlling case regulation confirms that mineral improvement is the priority use of the federal lands.
That is my strongest request for you guys to help this ultimate effort by our business to win our rights back. For as long as we now have been preventing, and all the cash we’ve spent over the previous 9 or 10 years, it has all come right down to this: We have to push as arduous as we will to get Bohmker in entrance of the U.S. Supreme Courtroom!
My honest thanks to each of you who help this remaining effort!
