I agree with Mike that what you posted is what alot of people will think. At first. The association that we are proposing is not about telling the mining industry how to do their jobs. People go into business, whether it is mining or any other industry, so that they can run things the way they feel they should be run.

We are not so arrogant as to tell others how to run their operations which is what you are eluding to in your post. There are many private people and private/public companies out there that lack expertise and/or manpower to perform many of the tasks required to take a project from exploration status to an operating mine. We will offer our assistance to get these people in touch with those that have the expertise and man power to assist them in their efforts. In addition to that we will also be able to maintain a record of reliability of the vendors. It is not always important to know the answers as long as you know where to find the answers and that is the essence of what we are proposing here.

I can assure you that I have never been a suit or a pat myself on the back sort of guy. I deal in nothing but results. All the effort in the world is not going to do anyone any good if they don't bring in the results that are needed.

Suffice it to say that I do appreciate your concerns because I am sure that I will hear them repeated many more times as we start the association. I will be very concerned if I am still hearing those same concerns being expressed two years from now. I am prepared to prove myself to you and the rest of the industry and all I am asking in return is the opportunity to do so.

Just a small correction to your post. I have never dealt with insurance. That was Mr. Marsh.
