  1. When a miner takes the risk and pays the fees for a claim, they "own" the mineral rights. Those claim fees are revenue for the government and they have been getting larger and larger. In other words, the government gets their cut up front. Then, IF the miner decides to risk more his or her capital to obtain the necessary permit and pay the required deposit (if required) in order to actually extract the minerals, the miner can risk more capital to do so. That's the way capitalism works Bob. Then, IF the miner makes a profit, the miner pays taxes on the income. As this post suggests,

  3. " AGGRESSIVE WASPS AND 'MEAT BEES' HIT WEST COAST" LOS ANGELES, SEPT. 12 --" Unusually large squadrons of hostile yellow jacket wasps, joined by an aggressive new species, are sending people to hospitals along the West Coast. "Those suckers are eating us alive," said Ruth Budesa of the northern California town of Sonora. At least one horse died after disturbing a nest of the meat-eating yellow jacket, also known as the meat bee. "One sting is enough to kill a hypersensitive human," said George Poinar, an entomologist at the University of California, Berkeley. "Fifty to 75 stings are en

  4. J. Anderson of kellycodetectors, You are more than welcome to include the rest of your story here but I can't let you redirect our members to your website to read the rest of the story! I have removed the link to your website....the owner of these forums doesn't allow links to metal detecting supplies websites because he sells metal detecting supplies and metal detectors.

  6. Getting back to the subject of the royalties these democrats have proposed, it just points to the fact that they want big and intrusive government. How many new bureaucrats would it take to oversee this new source of government income? It would probably cost more than the royalties. The next step for Obamacare was to hire thousands of new IRS agents to audit people to make sure they didn't fudge their taxes to save on their health care tax.

  8. One thing that my father taught me when I was growing up working in his business. He said "Corporations don't pay taxes, people pay taxes". No matter what tax is rendered on a business or corporation it will eventually be filtered on down to the consumer in one form or another. A business must stay above the bottom line if it wants to stay in business. If a tax is levied on a hamburger joint the cost of your burger goes up. There are many ways that a corporation can redirect that tax where it winds up in the consumers lap. Old Tom

  9. Oh it will be great Slim! If Biden wins, he will not only raise taxes on us little people but also on big corporations. Everyone seems to think hey, let's just tax the crap out of the big corporations!! Unfortunately most people dont think about how many jobs those big companies create. Sure tax them big, then watch them shut down and move or or just close the doors forever. Some seem to forget that wages are the top expense for a company and when you tax the crap out of them on top of paying all of the wages, well we all know what happens next. UNEMPLOYMENT!

Is that the 2kw or the bigger 5 to 8kw? I many borrow your placement for mine baja. Wife and I enjoy the backroads in the area and hope to have it out on the playa soon.

  11. I started working more hours and haven't had much time for the Bug lately, but I finished the front winch bumper yesterday. I also got all 5 tires mounted in preparation for rolling it outside, and turning it around to start work on the back. The bumper turned out well. Nice and strong and will hold the 5000lb winch perfectly. I added a ring to the bottom of the skid for either an anchor point, or a place to clip the cable in double line winching. It's a strong enough winch I shouldn't have to resort to that very often. I pressed out all the ball joints and pressed in the n

  15. I first arrived here in Brazil in 1996, one of the interesting people I met was the local gold buyer. Don't know how long he had already been in business but he's done pretty good through the years. When a prospector sells him gold the buyer pays 70% of spot. A pretty good job, he sits in his AC office all day while prospectors sweat, fight killer hornets, big snakes, mountain lions and bad prospectors with guns. About a week ago things took a turn for the worse for the gold buyer. Early one morning two Federal Police cars stopped at his office while

  19. They verified the information? Really? What information did they verify? There does not seem to be anything at all to back up these claims. If it took so much time to verify then they must have been working on something. What was it? So far they just can't back the story up with anything at all. Just a Trump supporter who says he got the info off a laptop with a Biden sticker on it. That is weak sauce Slim. It didn't take months to "verify" any of this story because no elements of the story have been "verified". It is nothing but a tale for a fairy to help Trump's sinking

  24. No doubt your father was wise. Sounds just like something my Grandfather would say. The thing is, this only applies to consumers. If I don't consume 'your' product, then I shouldn't have to pay to subsidize 'your' company. Unless 'you' think socialism is a good idea. (which I'm sure you do not) If if true capitalism is the best way, then companies should sink or swim on their own merits.

  26. Don't worry Bob. If Biden wins he will raise taxes. Unfortunately, as a result, more businesses will close and those which survive will have to pass the tax increase on to the consumer. The decrease in economic activity will keep demand for oil low so it's great that your state is rapidly diversifying and investing in renewables. Why should the miners and oil producers in your state get out of politics?

  27. And I say they should pay royalties on the value of the minerals extracted like every other type of mining and extraction industry. Stopping abuse of our public lands isn't anti-mining at all. You can characterize it like that to put a political spin on it but that isn't reality. Reality is that profitable deposits belong to the people and mineral rights just give the owner the right to exploit them. Opinions may differ. But I support the idea of royalties being paid for valuable metals extracted from public land. Just like any other extraction industry. And just like they would hav

  29. The Russians have definitely been involved in US mining. They gave hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clintons, not for the Pebble Mine but for the Uranium One deal. Then Hillary paid for the Russian disinformation in the Steele dossier that started the bogus Russia witch hunt. AND THEN, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow gave 3.5 million to Hunter Biden. What do you suppose that was for?

  33. I must respectively disagree with the common consensus here, regarding the specimen at hand. Yes, this is a form of Hematite Iron (Fe2O3) or possibly (Fe4O5), and agreed, this is not a meteorite. The sample in question is actually an "impactite," formed from vaporized/melted (Fe) during an asteroid impact event involving extreme heat/pressure circumstances. I can imagine the previous posters are crying "bloody murder it is," at this very moment of reading. I get that. However, true science involves the "consideration" of new evidence presented and the observation thereof. Here's my

  34. Thanks. Seeing yours done was a big instigator to finally acquiring one myself. I'll post a pic when I hook it all up. I'm basically going to route it over to the driver's side wheel well. The mount I made for the heater elevates it above the metal apron so there is enough room to make the bend in the exhaust tubing. I'll also add some heat shielding to it...just in case. I'm thinking of building a 1915 for this one too. I am hoping that will be plenty of power. The 1600 still runs, so it is something I can do over the course of the winter.

  37. It's been about 15 or-so years ago when I had a run in with some bees that I will never forget. I was an outside sales rep for an industrial products company in Tucson and was up promoting our products at the copper mine not far from Mammoth, Arizona. I had just left the ball mill and was heading back to Tucson in the afternoon when I decided that I needed to take a leak,.."Bad". I was just coming up to a couple of abandoned buildings, so I thought I'd cruise in behind and do my duty. So, without paying much attention to the surroundings (due to my urgency) I whipped around the corner of t

  40. A couple of weeks ago I went up to Sierra City. I went to an area that was very, very dry and they had been cutting some timber. That was all long gone but as I began to dig a couple of dig holes I was 'approached' by yellow jackets. At first they just went to the bottom of the dig holes. Then they started landing on my arms. I didn't have any repellent and I tried to keep detecting. Eventually they were getting behind my sunglasses and that was as much as I could take. One stung me on my wrist and another one under my arm. There was no where I could hunt over about a square mile area
