From Martin Armstrong:

Governments are targeting safe-deposit boxes to look for cash that is hiding from taxation. HSBC, a U.K. bank, is now moving against claimed financial crimes by altering conditions for safe-deposit boxes. This is becoming a global trend. Anything of value that is stored in a safe-deposit box is now considered money laundering. Governments want their taxes and all the laws are changing to ensure they get their money.

The largest gold nugget ever unearthed came from Dunolly, Victoria, Australia on February 5, 1869. The Welcome Stranger Nugget weighed 150 pounds or 2315.5 troy ounces. Although a large nugget was found in Brazil, almost all of the world's large nuggets come from Australia and Sierra County here in California. In 1869, a 1893 ounce nugget was found in Sierra City and earlier in 1860 a 1593 ounce nugget was found in about the same location.

In the 1930's and 40's several nuggets were extracted from the recently sold Ruby Drift Mine ranging in weight from 30 up to 52 ounces in the Alleghany Mining District. In the 1854 to 1862 period 12 nuggets were pulled from the Yankee Claim in the county weighing from 30 to 170 troy ounces.

Some of the biggest nuggets ever found were sent to the smelter and today only about a dozen over 500 ounces still exist.

Were all found in the 1800's and later? Don't bet on it. The richest land in the world for finding large nuggets only comes from two places, Victoria, Australia and the mining districts of Sierra County. What better place to search for gold than in these two areas that Mother Nature impregnated with so much already discovered gold and who knows how much more she continues to hold? It is wondered, how many more millions of ounces of gold are yet to me mined, especially in the Alleghany Mining District?

Will Illinois Be the First State to Go Bankrupt?

Posted on October 20, 2015 by Martin
Armstrong

The state of Illinois is in real trouble. The state employees have been bleeding the state dry and are demanding that they raise taxes so they can get theirs. This is the poster state for government employees expropriating private assets. Illinois must pay $560 million in November and they have said they will have to delay the payment to its pension funds. They will also delay payments due in December. We are on the verge of watching state bankruptcy. Once Illinois goes, others will follow to escape pension payments to former state employees.

There is only one way to stop this rape of the tax payers, to have an initiative preventing such charges. That there will not be any charges for miles driven, nor any other scheme by the state based on milage traveled.

Taxing Per Mile....doesn't sound like a great idea to me....all that paperwork, but here's the info: Getting to OReGO
Diminishing fuel tax returns led Oregon decision-makers back to the drawing board to create a fair, reliable source of revenue to fund transportation projects for all Oregonians. The result is OReGO. Here are the details:

OReGO volunteers will pay a road usage charge for the amount of miles they drive, instead of the fuel tax.
The OReGO road usage charge is set at 1.5 cents per mile.
Volunteers will get a credit on their bill to offset the fuel tax they pay at the pump.
Volunteers will have their choice of secure mileage reporting options offered by OReGO’s private-sector partners.
Volunteers’ personal information will be kept secure and private.
The first phase of OReGO is limited to 5,000 cars and light-duty commercial vehicles.

Taxing Per Mile Driven

From: Martin Armstrong

I have warned that states are desperate for money. Now, they are preparing to impose a tax on each mile driven. Oregon now wants to install a GPS “Mileage Tracking Device” in every car. They will also use the global warming scam to justify this tax as if this will have any effect upon altering the climate. It is just an excuse to justify more taxation. You will pay tax on the gasoline and then pay an additional tax per mile. A new double taxation. Eventually, all states will follow this lead.

Hi Mike, thanks for the information. I am trying to figure out what the 2300 feet of drift that the Forest Service has closed off to us at the Roye - Sum is worth at a ballpark figure. Big Al
 By Michael Miller

09/19/2015  4:51PM

There are numerous conditions affecting any mining. For an average four foot round of drift, the following foot cost is an estimate. It may be greater but is unlikely to be less. Included are: labor for two miners (one a lead miner), explosives, track material, utility supplies, utilities and misc. supplies, equipment sinking fund for broken and repairs, and outside power. There is no dollar allowance for supervision. The per-foot cost is $410.

Now, the location of the heading is critical. How far is the travel to dispose of waste? What are the outside conditions? Where are the supplies and equipment coming from? How far does the crew travel to the mine site and then to the heading? All these influence the cost. I assumed the heading is close to the portal. Also I did not figure ventilation, if required. If ventilation is required the cost will increase substantially.

Mining is not a casual hobby. It is a dangerous and tough business. Crews, like ours, are professional underground gold miners, some of the best in the country. Mike

Hi Mike, regarding the thieves, hanging is to good for them, take them down in the mine to water level, and barricade them in with no light for a few days. might change thier perspective on life. I have a question for you, as I need to know what a 5 by 7 drift costs in todays money per foot to construct complete with rail. It is for Gene's and my lawsuit against the Forest Service. Thanks, Big Al and Gene

"Property taxes are undemocratic" -Martin Armstrong

More of his thoughts

We do not own our homes; you cannot retire, even after paying off your mortgage, since you still have to pay property taxes. If you do not pay your property taxes, they take your house and throw you out on the street. Property taxes are the most UNDEMOCRATIC tax we have and are a remnant of a totalitarian state. Today, government workers demand funding for their pensions through exploitation of the people.

Government should privatize to eliminate pensions. We have to face the fact: politicians will never efficiently manage anything; they are hopeless. Government departments should privatize simply for real management, and then we would not have this crisis of unfunded pensions that are bankrupting the states. No state is capable of simple fiscal management because they are not competitive. Instead, they abuse their power of taxation to fill in gaps of mismanagement. Taxes clearly alter our lives and it is never for the better at the end of the day.

Our mine site was burglarized over the Memorial weekend. We lost about $5,000 in tools and equipment. Our operation was hurt without these tools until I could replace them.

For me a burglary is a personnel attack, especially when some guys steal the tools needed to do your work. It reminded me about days gone by. Growing up I wondered why the cowboys or locals hung a horse thief. A horse 150 years ago could mean life or death to its owners.

Years later on I realized that if some butt head steals your horse, it is grounds to hang him. I feel the same about stealing a man's tools. Your life depends on them.

I am installing a very sophisticated security system. It costs a bunch. It provides information in real time and monitored in real time.

Interestingly, these two thieves turned our electrical power off at the meter. It won't work if there is a next-time trespassers enter our properties. So (and I know that someone reading this FORUM knows these burglar pricks) trespass again on our mining properties and we will hang you.

Nine miners who were trapped underground in northwestern Quebec have been rescued and are not injured. Mine manager Sylvain Lehoux said that after being trapped for nearly 18 hours, the evacuated miners were exhausted but were able to talk to family members. They were rescued by a tunnelling machine at the Iamgold mine in Preissac in the Abitibi-Temiscamingue region. The miners were trapped after a wall moved because of seismic activity in the area.

Lehoux says the section where the incident happened may not reopen, and a survey will need to be done with consultants and engineers to determine whether the area is safe.

The miners were in good spirits but added they were hungry. One miner was freed earlier in the day and the other eight Tuesday night. The company suspended operations for the day amid the rescue attempts.
It is the second such incident at the mine in four months. In January several miners were also caught in an area not far from the location of Tuesday’s wall collapse. The area is located on what he describes as the Cadillac fault and any movement can definitely cause an earthquake.

IAMGOLD only started commercial production at the mine in July 2014.

C.W.,

Didn't most of this actually happen last year? I seem to remember finding a press release from Sutter last year stating that the development of this mine was "put on hold" pending the new $1.2 million investment that they can't seem to find.

I was perusing some news and noticed another smaller-scale miner (Sutter Gold) in California recently ran into some serious problems:

Sutter Gold Mining Inc. yesterday announced plans to put its California-based Lincoln mine project on care and maintenance. Though the mill has processed about 1,000 tons of stockpiled material, it ultimately failed to get through all the material due to “weakness in the design and installation of the plant thickener.” Milling operations were suspended at the end of February due to the “inability to dewater tailings.” To correct those and other issues, the company requires an estimated additional investment of $1.1 to $1.2 million.


If I remember correctly, Sutter Gold mines in Amador county, and was bankrolled by an Aussie company/investor.
