here's an important excerpt from the attached newsletter,

from Samantha at Armadillo Mining Shop:

We have a problem in Josephine County that needs everyone's support. And Quickly.

Public Commissioners Meeting

Time: Friday June 2nd @ 9am

Where: Anne Basker Auditorium 604 N.W. Sixth Street, Grants Pass, OR 97526

Back Story... Josephine Planning Department decided to put a 25' buffer on each side of all water ways shutting down the water. AND require a permit for mining above the locked out area. Amount for permit is still unknown.

This is NOT approved by the commissioners, or JOCO lawyer Wally Hicks. Or even advised or KNOWN about by the JOCO Mining Advisory Committee.

When explained to the Planning Department the unlawfulness of this plan, they didn't care. Last week there was a meeting that was supposed to be closed doors of just commissioners and lawyer, and planning department. Somehow it got opened to public and our environmental groups got word and came in force. It was shelfed and rescheduled for the date above. We all know why they have no right to do this. But they do not seem to care. We need to come to the public meeting and testify before the commissioners that we will hold any that approve this personally responsible for takings on our mineral estates!

Please spread the word quickly.

Call or Email with any questions,

Sam Samantha Everett Armadillo Mining Shop 2041 NW Vine Street Grants Pass OR 97526 541-476-6316

 

 

Good morning, Fellow Prospectors!

Here's a quick rundown of our schedule for the month of June 2017.

Gold Show Committee meetings start Wednesday June 14th at Abby’s Pizza on Diamond Lake Blvd. at 6 PM. They will be held each Wednesday following our general meeting. Contact Gary Sturgill if you would like to volunteer on this committee.

This Saturday June 17th is the BBQ. Meet at the fairgrounds park at about 10 AM. Please bring a side dish and a metal detector.

Finally, there is no Outing scheduled for this month, as we roll that into the BBQ day each year in June. I hope you've all had a chance to get out and find some gold lately! Sadly, I won't be able to attend the BBQ to share recent stories with you all, as I'll be out of town for Father's Day weekend. I'm sad to miss it! So until next time, may there always be a flash in your pan,

Nick Gall

Senate Bill 838

ANTI MINING BILL

YOU should direct your comments to the Senate Environment and Natural Resource Committee,

because SB 401 and SB 838 is set for a hearing April 15 at 3:00pm

The first name below is the Senate President, he is not on the committee, but we should flood his office too, for letting an unconstitutional Bill go to committee. I understand that he can pull the Bills back from the committee he has sent these to. We need to let him know of our displeasure as well. Guy.
