  1. I last saw and spoke with Jim a bit over a year ago. He spent several hours on both Saturday and Sunday in the ICMJ booth with me at the Pomona GPAA show. He was a good man and wrote many articles for the ICMJ. It is sad to see him go.
  2. Yep. Its laws you have to comply with to have your stock listed for sale in the US - specifically amounts of money you have to have capital you need to have on the books before you can start. These companies raise capital by selling stock - and many of them start really small. Even if you are perfectly law abiding and clean as a whistle, it still costs big money just to comply with the US laws.
  3. Glad you all are enjoying these, I have part 3 up on Youtube now. Its at:
  4. The US has laws to make it very difficult to allow US corporations to raise money for mineral exploration. So most exploration companies are headquartered in Canada, although most of the employees may be operating in the USA. So for at least this situation, its a self inflected problem. As doo-gooder politicians create a nanny state to protect everyone. They see mineral exploration as too risky, so you cant invest the same way that Canada allows.
  5. Thanks for the kind words. Part 2 is now up on YouTube. See:
  6. I am half owner of claims with virtually the same geology as the Kay mine. Geophysical testing shows several likely ore bodies and further drilling is expected later this year. The mine that was worked for copper nearby tossed out the gold ore that sat on top of the copper ore body because they didn't realize what it was. The copper ore they mined in the 1960s ran about 10 percent copper, and some of the gold bearing rock they tossed on waste piles ran close to a half an ounce per ton (the gold is all dust sized stuff, not even little flakes). My partners and I have leased the claims to a Can
  7. Hey I just put up another video, The Geology of Placer Deposits, Part 1 (it will be part 1 of 3) This one focuses on different types of placer deposits and how the gold concentrates naturally - then also about finding those natural concentration spots. I do think it has a lot of hints, information and secrets that will be useful to most prospectors. I promise not to continually do this, putting up video notice when I throw something on Youtube. That would be kind of lame of me. So if you want to see parts 2 and 3 also, be sure to subscribe and tick the notification bell. The other two par
  8. Last year was not exactly a banner prospecting year for me. I got out a number of times and did detect some gold and do some dry washing, but it was a year with other problems and obligations. I had two trips to the hospital, one emergency by ambulance, and one for surgery on my heart (not open heart, but the doctor put a probe up through a vein into the inside of my heart). My wife had two stays at the hospital as well. We also spent time moving my elderly mother in law from southern California where she has few remaining relatives, up to a senior home in Reno. I did get out and find som
  9. If you ever get the chance, its well worthwhile.....
  10. Jen - Have you ever attended the Tucson Gem and Mineral show? Its pretty impressive.
  11. So I double checked and - sure enough, Kieth does have an article in the January 2015 issue, my mistake. Its a short article about finding a patch out in the Pershing Co. - Rye Patch area. He finds a big nugget about 1 ounce in the patch. And sadly, Smokey Baird, Kieth's friend mentioned in the article, has since passed away.
  12. I have no idea when the last time Kieth wrote an article for us - nothing recent, not even as recent as Steve's cover. We used to have an authors feature on the website that listed all the articles for the last decade or so by author, but apparently that disappeared when we updated the website the last time a year or so ago.
  13. Jenifer - It was the ICMJ, but this is a nearly 2 year old thread. Steve was on the cover of the January 2015 issue. See:
  14. Just an FYI to readers that this "keystone" is in central Nevada and is not the Keystone mine area in the Eugene Mountains of Pershing County where much gold has been found with detectors in the past. .
