Rich, I want to talk Geology here, not chemistry or stock promotion. I want to post this GPGI link to the Thomas Report that in the first two paragraphs talks about the Laramide Layer. This is what is possibly a result of converging Plate Techtonics that happened eons ago ( 65 million years as oppposed to 16 million years ago which are the predominant mountains and ranges that WE see on the CD Rom at 3-D Exployer). This is what Jim Briscoe keys into at his search and twenty plus claims at Jaba based in Tucson, this is what Dale had mentioned to me as recently as simply important. We talked about rock samples and souveniers we both picked up in the desert. I think the one shaped like a double layer valentine that I gave by like one he took home to Peoria that has giant looks-like "Bear Claw Mark-Scratches" that he "put out back!" Us Rock Hounds are dogs for that part of the eons of time stories! And we talked about 4 different types of rock formation-types and he humbly said, a remark that say was an understatement about him and the word, "Geologists!" On the job training counts in my book. Now for some Laramide Layer mention scrapes from GPGI ( Bob Barefoot ( of DCRS ) describes the layer of the Nevada Carlin Trend as a plate Shear( maybe there is a better word-I am guessing on his quote -not infront of me) that came up so high and off cenentered backwards that it fell backward with in his EXACT WORDS ( Iluvit-Idoloveit!) the "Belly Up"-Do you see the importance of Laramide -now?) website ( This is not a scam -this IS geology with all these guys, CHIP and IPM might even have these influences for the Coined title of Bob Barefoot-" The Great Basin Gold Discovery!"):
""The average annual rainfall is about ten inches. The mean elevation is about 2500 feet. The terrain is sparsely vegetated, rocky, and arid. Varieties of cactus, manzanita, and sage are characteristic of the flora.

The Oro Grande Mine is situated on about 150 acres of private property, nine patented claims, and is surrounded by about 1000 acres of lode claims under the same ownership.

The main ore body of the Oro Grande is the remnant of a laramide age, composite batholith, which has been sheared, hydrothermally altered, and mineralized.

hree major mineralized shear zones exist on the private property. These are characterized by hematitic alternations via hydrothermal fluids which have been active at several times since the onset of the laramide. These major shear zones can be measured to about 3000 feet length on the surface and 200 feet width. Significant nobel metal mineralizations occur within these shear zones. The shear zones are approximately parallel and strike about northeast. Major dip-slip faults cross cut the shear zones on the north and south ends of the property. These strike roughly northwest and are post laramide.

It should be noted that the widths of the shear zones appear to increase with depth, as noted by measurements at the 100 ft. level in the mine.

The lithologies visible at the surface are complex and are characterized by hematitic breccias, mafic schists, diorites, aplites, pegmatities, nornblendites. Sulfides and copper oxides are characteristic of many of the outcrops in the vicinity of the mine. ""
P.S.- Invisable yes, but not...THAT - complex mineralization all over here!
PPS- The San Bernadino area is THE START of all this rippling thru AZ NV and all over this "Great Basin" KILO and Naxos just of may been envolved here with all this Plate Geology!!! For Desert Stuff in Californai, even..maybe that is Important to Naxos now!!
