Good afternoon, Fellow Prospectors!

Here is your last-minute reminder that we'll have our Annual Christmas Dinner tomorrow night.

As a reminder, we do need folks to bring a side dish to the dinner; I don't know how well this was communicated this year, so I apologize if it is a surprise to you.

Also, after the info on the dinner is a very important Call to Action regarding legislative issues concerning Mining. Please read on... Dinner is on December 11th at the Pine Grove Community Church, 1729 Buckhorn Road, Roseburg, OR 97470 at 7:00 pm. The cost is $5.00 per person if you have not paid yet, we will take your payment at the dinner.

We will have a brief General Meeting just before dinner.

We have a volunteer gift exchange going on after the dinner. If you want to participate, know that it is a $10 unisex gift limit.

We still need volunteers and help for these time slots:

Candy Making | 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM

General Setup | 2:00 to 4:00 PM

Dinner Serving prep | 6:00 to 7:00 PM,

with dinner being served just about 7:00 PM Cleanup will commence about 7:30 or later, depending on the time taken for, and the participants in the Gift Exchange.

And: A Legislative issue has crossed the Mining Communities' radar that all of you should be aware of; the future of Mining as we know it very well could be at stake SO TAKE ACTION NOW and write President Trump. Here are the details:

From the New 49er's via Randy Waters, our own Website guru: --------------------------------- Send an e-mail to President Trump. Best to read the letter sent by the Attorney then use your own words to express your wishes. Please NO FOUL LANGUAGE! Randy --------------------------------

---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Dave McCracken Date: Fri, Dec 8, 2017 at 6:46 PM

Subject: Action Alert; Everyone's help is needed right now!

To: Randy Waters

Dear Randy Waters,

We just found out that the Solicitor General has submitted a briefing to the U.S. Supreme Court which completely misrepresents what is at stake in the Rinehart case, and presents a completely false explanation of why the Supreme Court should not review the Rinehart case.

This is hugely alarming since the Solicitor General is supposed to be on the side of “Making America Great Again." Here is just one more reminder of how deep and pervasive the deep state is -- or "the swamp" as it is commonly referred to. The following is a link to the Solicitor General's briefing to the Supreme Court. It was undoubtedly compiled by our worst enemies; the very same people who are attempting to bring Donald Trump down: https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/16/16-970/22901/20171206191927741_16-970%20--%20Rinehart%20v%20California.PDF

At this point, it would seem as though our final hope is to bring this terrible injustice to President Trump's attention. The best way I can think of to do this is through a massive email program by so many people, that whoever manages the President's communications cannot ignore the message. This is nearly the last opportunity we have to save our industry, folks! Here is where you go to write a message to President Trump: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/write-or-call

Please read the following formal letter that has been sent to Donald Trump by our attorney: http://www.goldgold.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Letter-to-President-Trump-12-8-17.pdf

You can create your own talking points from what you already know, or by reading the letter just above, or just by reminding Mr. Trump that there is no way we will ever make America great again unless we open mineral development once again on the federal lands. While the federal government certainly gets in our way in some places, some States are determined to stop mineral development on the federal lands. This is especially true in California, Oregon and Washington.

Please copy and paste into your message the link just above which goes to our attorney's letter. It might also be helpful if you send a copy of your message to the U.S. Supreme Court. You can find the email address here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/contact/contact_pio.aspx

We must create such a large commotion over this that Mr. Trump or his Attorney General will immediately withdraw the existing briefing to the Supreme Court, and have a new briefing written by pro-mining, pro-America attorneys. There are plenty of these available in the private sector. For as long as we have been fighting to recover our mining rights, there has never been a more important time to make our voices heard. Our future, and to a large degree, America's future, hangs in the balance which very well might swing our way if we all make a lot of noise right now!

Thanks for all you can do,

Dave Mack The New 49'er Legal Fund ----------------------

And here's what Kerby Jackson recently had to say about this: In case you haven't heard, the current administration is (as expected) continuing the long standing federal tradition of stabbing independent miners in the back and shirking their duties and contractual obligations under the 1872 Mining Act.

A few days ago, USDOJ submitted an Amicus Curiae in Brandon Rinehart's case supporting the State of California's illegal ban of "suction dredging" and opposing the idea of the SCOTUS reviewing the case. The basic DOJ position is that in spite of miners having protected property rights, arguments that the existence of those rights insure a right to benefit and utilize that property, "are no longer good law(s)". https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/16/16-970/22901/20171206191927741_16-970%20--%20Rinehart%20v%20California.PDF -----------------------
