  1. Last week
  2. Hi Bill, Glad you are ok, I was up at Cerro Gordo a year or so back and the new owners had big plans. The older fellow who has been looking after the site for years is a hard rock miner and his knowledge of the mines in the area and history are great. The Hotel and other buildings were in pretty fine condition and I am saddened to hear they were lost. Jeff G.
  3. That was a real big loss up in Cerro Gordo. They lost the American Hotel and adjacent buildings to fire. I’ll try to get soon to see if I can find anything.
  4. Earlier
  5. Glad to see see you had no problems . Lot going on up there Cerro Gordo had a fire that destroyed some of the historic town buildings they lost power from a lightning strike and no one can get up there the road washed out. Maybe the storm exposed some gold areas in Mazourka. Good luck to you!
  6. Wow, that was a big one! Doing fine thankfully. They had some major rockfall at Mt Whitney. Fortunately nobody was hurt. Here’s a photo someone took.
  7. Hi Bill, just checking up on you. looks like that 5.8 was in your backyard. hope everything is okay
  8. Glad things are getting better Carlos, we are moving forward now and working on rebuilding from almost zero claims wise. More to come soon and yep you have some reading to do
  9. Hey Carl, best way to come back is to come back strong. Glad to know you are on the mend. Sorry to learn of deaths in your family. Looks like you have some catching up to do...
  10. WOW  Holly Cow.  If I can do anything to help the club down here in Southern AZ, let me know.  After a look see through the forum, I am unable to determine who are current officers are and can't find members directory  to communicate. I am not receiving e-mails if any are being sent.  Members please feel free to msg me and let me know who is on 1st, 2nd and third.

    Hi gang. This has been an unusual year for me. Four trips to the emergency room so far this year and lost a couple relatives. I am coming back strong though but kind of confused about what is happening to all my friends in the WSPA. I Have not been receiving e-mails. Are e-mails being sent? Looks like I have a lot of reading to do. I hope you all are doing well and looking forward to catching up. Carl
  12. Great they deserve every penny of it.
  13. Great! Thanks for getting er done!
  14. Thanks JB. See you again soon, hopefully. Be safe and take care (everyone). AA
  15. Thank you John. Hope all is well with you.
  16. HI All On 6/15/20 I sent thru Bill Pay 3 checks for $696.00 each to these three charities. Fisher house foundation Inc. Gary Sinise Foundation. Homes for our troops. While looking up addresses and phone numbers I checked out their web sites. They are all top rated charities and it made me very proud to be a part of this organization. To those of you who helped or put in to this monies my sincere thanks go out to you. With the warmest regards John B. # 2 I Think
  17. Thanks Jeff, I will be standing by.
  18. Desertpilot, I just noticed this recent post and want to thank you for being so patient. The club is smack dab in the middle of reorganization and if all goes well we should be taking in new members within the next thirty days. We have retained an attorney to guide us through this overhaul. There is a meeting of the Board of Directors scheduled for next week and I am optimistic that we will be able to pass needed reforms and will soon be acquiring new claims, and opening up for new members soon thereafter. Again, thank you for your patience. Jeff G.
  19. Is WSPA taking any new members yet?
  20. Ray, I moved my response to the Members Forum. Respectfully, Jeff G.
  21. Hi all. June is just around the corner and use to be membership renewal time. Will this be the norm for 2020 or are other options on the plate.
  22. California Desert Protection Act of 1994. PUBLIC LAW 103-433—OCT. 31, 1994 108 STAT. 4483 To designate certain lands in the California Desert as wilderness, to establish the Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks, to establish the Mojave National Preserve, and for other purposes. (c) WITHDRAWAL.—Subject to valid existing rights, the Federal lands referred to in subsection (b) are hereby withdrawn from all forms of entry, appropriation, or disposal under the public land laws; from location, entry, and patent under the United States mining laws; and from disposition under all laws pertaining to mineral and geothermal leasing, and mineral materials, and all amendments thereto. Subsection (b) that precedes (c) above is a long subsection that lists several Wilderness areas including Death Valley. They don’t use the word “Prospecting” but the intent may be implied in the language “under the public land laws”. Have a good day, Chet
  23. I think you are right about the Mojave Preserve, its off limits. All the historical sights are protected in the preserve.
  24. I'm pretty sure even Mojave National Preserve is a no-go. I was hoping to get out today but we've got some pretty high winds today so I'll try to get back up Mazourka later in the week. Thanks for all the tips guys. I'll be sure to follow up on my progress. -Bill
  25. Did not know that. When I was up in Mazourka years ago with my wife I wanted to take a 4x4 road back to a spring area and camp. There is a placer operation with shallow drifts along the bedrock, looked real interesting. When we got to the road there was about 10 people there moving large rocks across the road to prevent access a group called "Friends of the Inyos" the group that had pushed to put the areas into wilderness protection. They told me the area was now a wilderness area and I could not drive back there and prospect. I could walk back in but removal of minerals was not allowed well I believed them and never went there. Their group that instigated the wilderness area said it was put into wilderness area to protect the Inyos from mining and off roading. the roads heading back in theses areas are not shown on the forest service maps anymore but they are on topo maps. I will try to contact the Forest Circus to see if those high mountain roads into the designated wilderness are open or closed now. The placer area by the spring is only a few miles back in I can walk that but the other area is over 10 miles of steep 4x4 roads to get it, to far for this guy to walk. Does anyone know if the vast area of the Mohave called the Mohave Preserve is open to detecting because there are lots of great detecting areas there like the old mining town of Hart and others that are in the providence Mountains?
