CAUTION... FIRE IN THE HOLE !

"Tick-tick-sputter-sputter." I am counting the seconds left on a lit black powder fuse leading to a touchy blasting cap on an old-fashioned stick of Alfred Noble's dynamite. Placed in a drill hole designed to get your top person down attention away from a financial mining industry same-old, boring, "best kept news" elevator pitches

In the art of timing an explosion for mineral exploration in the field could be to a designed to nudge or mud-cap a large rock to present a "fresh face" for sampling with what farmers think of as stumping dynamite, and those that have actually worked underground known as a powerful shoving force as "the lifters."

We also understand, thanks to the US Department of the Army- Design of Underground installations in Rock (recently re-published in an Internet update to the California Mining Journal, as an excellent "Prospector's Guide to Rock Breaking and Blasting" by Chris Ralph) the importance of web ring timing of lighting a fuse on mining industry nano technology breakthroughs.

The logic behind the creating an underground "burn hole" is to implode the outside cutter rounds, sculpting the underground hanging walls, is the economics of selectivity. Especially when "horizontal" drilling, as in the center of a blasting pattern, connected by more sure-fire Primacord time delayed, cutters, and then the lifters, creates a void that could be the portal to an "exploratory adit". A possibly get paid as you go in crosscut stopes where a smaller (and more economical) underground sized diamond drill stations that point which way to go in a small project.


A sidebar. Even though the ICMJ (Internet California Mining Journal) is somewhat of a competitor of my hacked target of MiningMagazines.com and a www.WesternMiner.com database, also doesn't have valid and valid projects to advertise to the non-subscription reader demanding, "I want an operating gold mine with no money down"?

My father, who had been recognized as the best mining attorney in the West, including Alaska, appeared many times in the CMJ had the attitude that "we noble few" needed to support each other. Especially in California where another lawyer ancestor, Peter Haridam Burnette, had help promulgate the unique "Miner's Law" on the banks of the Yuba River. This led to his trying to defend Sutter's land claims before he became California's first governor. And, the "said" prospector's Code of the West went on to be validated as the Federal Mining Law of 1872.

Which didn't help me and two student geologists at all, just making wages working a small placer during the "gold rush of 1969", from being expelled from the office the Tax Assessor of Sierra County. Why? For not paying a very illegal three years assessment on our Federal Mining Claims? Something suitable for reporting in the CMJ "Bawl Mill" column. Sorry to ramble a bit, showing off as a 79-year old crank-a-dank that has your attention, my credentials.

ECO aware mining is replacing the stignma of big company care less attitude.


So the "pass the nickel bag of a roll your own Bull Durman in-the-dark humpback Camel back cigarette" break is over. Back to reading that small underground gold operations have become acceptable again provided no toxic chemicals are used, as the cyanide leaching of foreign multi-national large open pit projects that have all but destroyed the small US mining.

However small projects require a true mining finance due-diligence understanding of added value, over that of fools gold PR multinational news releases. Especially, again, in California where the District Attorney of San Bernadino County was instrumental in bankrupting Union Carbide's rare earths open pit mine, more or less gifting by collision(?) with China the exclusive right to build electric automobile engines.

Back to noticing small things that Arthur Anderson style bean counters do not have a clue about as; the drill pattern with a 60 percent nitro high-velocity center cut "trigger" can create a cavity void shattering potential ore into chip samples ready for assay. Or if improperly tamped into place, can create shock waves that will destroy the exploration value of a small vein on a project that doesn't qualify for the economy of scale a multinational major open pit.

Which of late has become the "transparent preferable" way to exploit using deep diamond drilling to find a small, but rich, particle at 600 feet. A scenario that has become the darling of "in Canadian interests" TSX shell game "pump and dump" manipulators who make insane amounts of money by corraling "sheep-le" to be flocked, through a pre-planned bankruptcies explained away as the fault of American bureaucrats mismanaging the un-patented surface rights of potential large scale open pit gold mines.

A new affordable small home building material that can save 60% over traditional materials.


The logic behind the creating an underground space to implode the outside cutter rounds, sculpting the underground hanging walls, is the economics of selectivity. Especially when "horizontal" drilling, as in the center of a blasting pattern, connected by more sure-fire Primacord time delayed, cutters, and then the lifters, creates a void that could be the portal to an "exploratory adit" pay as you go as crosscut stopes where a smaller (economical) sized diamond drill stations point which way to go.

So, Point One of this "presentation" is a personal "at risk" opportunity to joint venture in the start-up of an up-to-date, hard rock (not coal) underground mining company with a guaranteed preference with ECO-Minerals-Stockpile.com (not online as yet) with another property. This outsource up-to-date mining contractor is to be ECO-Mining-Milling.

And beyond that to other projects which fit the parameters of the ECO mining of the overlooked qualities of industrial, nanotech minerals of ECO-Mining-Ventures.com (also not online at the momet, that will also be coming to the revolutionary www.ECO-Minerals-Stockpile.net (which needs updating) with "buy-the-ton" concept marketing instead of selling claims, or turn over management decisions based upon what they think the flash trade market will be tomorrow. It is after all difficult to flip the new use of a lead deposit that has a provable million year stability.

The problem with listening to my sixty years of experience on the "Scots-Irish hillbilly" supply side of mining in what is still today out of range for wireless cell phone and modem connection is when I do get a chance to log into the financial side of real mining investment news. As I do not wear a tie, or speak the buzz words jargon, I am totally shocked that those who should be worried about history repeating itself leading to a Second Great Depression, by "small brained thinkers" who think Senator Elizabeth Warren (plus McCain, Cantwell, and King) wanting to bring back the Banking Act of 1933 ( Glass-Steagall) is nothing but a Powhatan "Pocahontas" political stunt.

As I have six DNA markers of Native American blood, including Powhatan, I am saddened that our "fake president" would stoop to using a racial tone when talking about my great-something Grandmother. And, Sir, even though you have a Scottish mother, know that my lineage also includes a royal Lord Andrew de Moray (ancient Murray) who provided a legal legitimacy for co-commander William Wallace (Braveheart) at the Battle of Sterling Bridge.

So genetically, as perhaps the "Last King of Scotland", I do have somewhat of an understanding of how counting houses work. As I truthfully reported for four years as the Editor and Publisher in a joint venture Economic Currents Magazine for the Columbia River Economic Development Council.

Too late breaking news, this morning I learned from Tyler Durden's Zero Hedge that "Since bottoming in late 2015, commodity prices have made a comeback of sorts, chopping their way higher. Couple this with a U.S. Dollar that is in the throes of a deep correction, and there’s reason to be bullish."

My response to this Bloomberg chart is to suggest those worried about a crashing devaluated dollar value, being credit default swap hedge fund matched by a coming Weimar Republic runaway inflation, only invest in corporations, or ideas, that have a proven, or documented potential of delivering a physical product that has something to do with meeting man's basic needs for survival.

The "Tick-tick-sputter-sputter burn hole implosion" anology is a prediction that the longtime historical repeatable "bank panic of ?? ... has triggered the following gold rush of ??" boom or bust cycle. Which of late seems to have been suppressed by the endgame of Keynesian economics where FDR used to momentary stimulus to temporarily replace a very stable international gold standard. US Privates in the early battles of the Civil War were paid $16 per month in California supplied gold; WW2 recruited Privates, before the draft, were paid $18 per month in the Territory of Alaska mined gold.

As US production of gold is subtly being taken over by multinational free trading and favored nation corporations the thought that the Chinese/Russia/India "Golden Yuan" could replace the USD as an international trade dollar suggests that the US temporarily retreat from what George Washington called "foreign entanglements" as a method of balancing ECO and ECOnomic survival.

Which thanks to the US having an abundance of natural resources with an intrinsic balanced value, we could do very well returning to the US Treasury teriff, and export taxes, system which was replaced by the Sixteenth Amendment in 1913, creating the modern Income Tax system. In reality, a subsidy to lawyers, accountants, paper stamping bureaucrats, and political action committee payments to citizen/politicians that already have a private health care system.

To make a nations' taxable wealth depending on working productively, also in 1913 alongside the IRS, the Federal Reserve Act system was also enacted as a banker's only flowthrough control of interest rates.

What will become extremely interesting, once the First Great Monetary Value Readjustment (FGMVR) begins, necessitating bringing jobs home again, will be how investors holding inflated and over-leveraged paper mining stocks that have no hope of meeting production payroll, will react to CEO's escaping bankruptcy by jumping out of a Wall Street window with a golden parachute. Or, when holder's of stacks of venture oil and futures coal paper have to make the decision which would provide more heat when burned in the fireplace.
