FIRST QUARTER, FEBRUARY 2015 VOLUME 29, NUMBER 2
Newsletter By Dave McCracken General Manager
Dear Members & Supporters,
We have drafted a newsletter that includes a video-enhanced story about a brand new very exciting gold discovery for surfacing gold mining activity along the lower stretch of our K-23AA property. This discovery will largely affect how the upcoming gold prospecting season plays out along the Klamath River in northern California.
We are also releasing all the details about our new K-26 property downstream of Happy Camp where we already know of rich gold deposits in the river, and where our preliminary sampling team has been recovering gold along the edge of the river for the entire stretch of the claim. This is a property we have been waiting to acquire since my first season on the Klamath during 1984!
The thing that is holding everything up is that we are still waiting for the San Bernardino Superior Court’s final Order concerning our Summary Judgment wins last month. Most of you will recall that Superior Court Judge Ochoa awarded California suction dredgers a huge win on January 12th by declaring the State of California’s “scheme” of first passing a law that requires us to obtain a permit, and then passing another law making permits unavailable, as an unlawful, un-enforceable interference with the intention of congress. This is a HUGE win for all gold miners!
If you have not read it yet, I strongly encourage you to read the decision.
Here is a shorter summary from our attorney.
However, we are waiting for a final signed Order from the judge so we can figure out how the Judgment will affect our 2015 suction dredging season in California!
Normally, we would delay putting something out to you guys until we receive the Order. But this month is different because The New 49’ers Legal Fund ongoing drawing will take place in just a few weeks. The Fund will be giving away the best set of prizes ever: Proline Manufacturing has contributed a brand new 4-inch suction dredge as the grand prize. There are also 20 American Gold Eagles!
The drawing will take place just before the close of business at our headquarters in Happy Camp on Friday evening, 27 February 2015. You do not need to be a member of our organization to participate. You are welcome to be at the drawing, but you do not need to be present to win.
Our office will automatically generate a ticket in your name for every $10 legal contribution we receive ($100 would generate 10 tickets, etc.). There is no limit to the size or frequency of your contributions, or to the number of prizes you can win. Look for more information here.
Since the drawing date is coming up in just a few weeks, and we don’t know how many more days or weeks we will need to wait for the Judge’s Order, we have decided to hold back the bulk of the newsletter for the moment and get this out to you.
Please help us make this the most productive legal fund-raiser ever!
As always, we greatly appreciate whatever you can do.
