  1. Thanks everyone. I had a good day starting with breakfast at the Horseshoe Cafe in Wickenburg and a nice dinner at home and a home made chocolate birthday cake too.
  2. Nice thread Chris. I like to see the exchange of information without contentious posts. I know about your meds issue Sunshine. Sorry for your issues and I hope you can get them resolved soon.
  3. Happy Birthday Chris. Hope you are having fun.
  4. Thanks Hoser. However my recent back surgery has slowed me down a good bit. I intended to add it helps to have a mentor to help you understand things and show you the Ropes. Gilaoro and Chrisski have been great helping me along the way. Also Barry at my land matters.
  5. It takes a lot of study, work and boots on the ground to figure out the claim process as Chrisski and the others have posted. In the summer your day is shortened in the SW but if you start early and work until the heat is too much you can still get stuff done.
  6. Lizzie had no ill effects from either of her shots. Sorry you had issues Joe.
  7. You should also consider Snake Bite Vaccination for you pup in addition to the avoidance training. Not cheap though. I paid $100.00 per shot requires 2 of them.
  8. Of course, there is some controversy surrounding this organization and their goals. Here is a link to one discussion thread: http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/gold-prospecting/452576-counsel-s-mission-1-bring-together-all-groups-organizations.html

  10. There are no commercially available "claims maps" that are accurate enough to legally determine the location of claims. The Gold Basin Footprints software is very good but is updated annually. It is a good starting point and along with County Recorder info, a good topo and LR2000 you can get current up to date data. You might also try Mylandmatters.org mining claim maps as a starting point.

  12. Barry, AZ claim question. If a claimant fails to file his paperwork or pay the maintenance fee on a claim and the case file is closed, is there anyway for that claimant to recover his claim without filing another location notice and paying the filing and maintenance fee again? Thanks for MyLandMatters. Very cool.
  13. And thank you for your support and words of encouragement. Very helpful. Good that you are wired into Mr. Franks so tightly. Not everyone enjoys that relationship with their rep or even knows their rep's name. Do you not suppose the opposition is "harping" on him all the time? FMTT
  14. OK even though this may be a rehash that is presented every year in Congress is it not wise for the small scale mining community to make their objections known to our representatives every time this issue or any other negative mining legislation comes up?
  15. I will say if any of you do meet up with Ray for a hunt you better have your running shoes on!!! He does not waste time between spots.
  16. Chris, The Savings Clause is where it is stated the General Mining Laws are replaced by this bill. The General Mining Law is the 1872 Mining Law. The language is very ambiguous, but that is the way I read it. Also, this bill changes the definitions of several key terms/words. They talk about hardrock mining in one breath and then cite open pit mines as examples. The authors and researchers of this bill obviously did a poor job and relied on misinformation from the environmental organizations. Since when has mining ever been the highest and best use of public domain land? This is a bad
  17. H.R. 5060, "Hardrock Mining and Reclamation Act of 2014" , To modify the requirements applicable to locatable minerals on public domain lands, consistent with the principles of self-initiation of mining claims, and for other purposes. This bill was introduced 07/10/2014 to repeal and replace the 1892 Mining Law. It has been sent to committee. The bill, if passed into law, will change mining as we now know it. This would be a good time to call, write or email your representatives to voice your opinions. Here is a link to contact your representative: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/US-Congress.
  18. Yes and it is getting wider in some of those very rough spots. Some of the bedrock patches are like razors. I am almost afraid to mention to the county in fear they will just close it. Or try to.
  19. The road really suffered from the rains this summer. I have always thought it to be very rough, but it's way worse now. I don't suppose the county or anyone ever grades it? Not sure grading is even possible with all the exposed bedrock in the roadway. There was definitely a lot of material moved while I was enoying the cool weather in WA. It is good to be back in AZ regardless of the road condition. Lizzie is not the only one who got fat and out of shape over the summer.
