  1. No such luck here. I have tried. Can copy/paste on all other web sites & on my computer document to document. Uninstalled Windows 8 & reinstalled Windows 7. Still will not copy/paste here, but will everywhere else?
  2. I wrote a few comments to this thread. Only to find out for some odd reason, I could not cut/paste them into a reply. Is it me, or has something changed here? I recently upgraded to Windows 8. Is that the problem?
  3. This brief will be a tough one for any Judge to not to pay very careful attention to. Simple, straight forward, factual & to the point. Very difficult to rebut.
  4. I have always held that the CA suction dredge ban is pre-empted by federal law. In this instance, if the States case can be overturned on that basis? Then, it will open the door to Federal court. Where that issue can be decided. Which is a good thing. My position is……. “Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States." (See, US Const, Art IV, § 3, cl. 2 (the "Property Clause"). This provision, combined with the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution (Art 6, cl 2), gives
  5. Link for updates: http://inciweb.org/incident/3624/ Sad, one after another - every year.

  7. More than once in Nugget County – over the years - after the creeks go way down – near dry. I have walked through big long culverts – that went under roads – with a flashlight & found a picker or 2 on the bottom of the culvert. The way metal culverts are built, they act like a sluice box riffle.
  8. Mined minerals touch every aspect of modern civilized life. Without them, modern industry, housing, transportation, electricity, refrigeration, communication, agriculture, clothing, etc, etc would not exist. So-called environmentalists who utilize all such things and every convenience they provide. Display their own ignorance of what exactly modern infrastructure is built of, and utterly dependent upon. Anyone who utilizes everything minerals provide – then loudly espouses an anti-mining agenda. Clearly demonstrates to the world – they are hypocrites. The benefits mined minerals provide human
  9. Even if you use corn cob as a polishing material. Coins themselves would bang against each other in any type tumbler. Hence, you would deface them & reduce their value.
  10. For what its worth...... http://txrockhound.zboxhosting.net/rock/gold/
  11. Agriculture has destroyed more habitat for sensitive & endangered species in California, than any other thing, nation wide. The greenies don’t seek to have agriculture prohibited in California. Can you say hypocrites.
  12. Anybody see a conflict in CA law here? Who is subject to SMARA? The Act's requirements apply to anyone, including government agencies, engaged in surface mining operations in California (including those on federally managed lands) which disturb more than one acre or remove more than 1,000 cubic yards of material. This includes, but is not limited to: prospecting and exploratory activities, dredging and quarrying, streambed skimming, borrow pitting, and the stockpiling of mined materials. http://www.conservation.ca.gov/omr/smara/Pages/faq.aspx Fishermen & greenies are not seeking to have S
  13. When SB 670 just came about. I did the math on the number of fishing licenses issued annually in CA. I didn’t save the data, but based on if the average CA fisherman each lost one pound per year (into CA waterways), the number amounted to TONS of lead – every year. A major source of CA DFG is derived from selling fishing licenses. The purpose of “fishing” is to catch, kill & harvest FISH. Thus, CA DFG encourages, promotes, approves & licenses the slaughter of FISH – in California waterways. Most certainly – CA – DFG is profoundly prejudiced – by the very fact – the millions of license
