Charles, <<Mr. Runyon has become the first full fledged member of the association as of today.>> That's all very nice, but what I really want to hear from Mr. Runyon is that Maxam production is on schedule. To tell you the truth, if I hear that Runyon is associating with CHIP, Naxos, and the likes of GPGI, I will sell my Maxam in a second. I don't want scam clubs and I don't want Maxam to go it alone, I want a major to JV with Maxam. The major's already have their associations.

Terry, I have been told that many mining companies were started by
people with no background in either engineering/mining or chemistry,
and the companies they started have provided ample dividend flow/share
appreciation to shareholders. regards-strenlich-

Richard,

Our efforts will concentrate on the areas where are membership is. The association will not bring together the individual companies in any manner unless those companies request us to do so.

What we are doing right now is compiling a membership list. This list will consist of the individual companies and a list of member vendors. If an individual company wishes to subcontract a service and they want to know who is available and offering adequate services for the least amount of money then we can go out and collect bids on the work for them from known reliable entities. This will help ensure that the members are going to be provided good service at the lowest available cost helping them to keep costs at a minimum and will also decrease any time and money wasted on those providing inadequate services. Members will not have any association with each other unless specifically requested by them.

If you take for example, one of Terry's posts on another thread mentioned how the Newfoundland government needs to be more flexible. Eventually we would like to be able to perform lobbying efforts. If bad laws are being proposed then all the companies will be able to pull their efforts to ensure that the decision makers are aware of the consequences of that particular law and can offer input to it as a unified body.

The newsletter is intended to be impartial. Any members wishing to join would have the option to introduce their company to all those subscribing to it. It will focus on technology and others opinions not my own and will also attempt to cover changes in laws governing the areas where the membership lies.

In regards to your interests, we are attempting to improve the value of your company. As others join we will do the same for theirs.

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 yesterday..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 wife..is 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!"):
gpgi.com
""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.

Geology
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. ""
Chuca
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"...so 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!!

Sob, I downloaded to disk for future reading- I will ask Chuck how to nerd the Adobe Accrobat Reader-I have no clue-Don't have it:
""The Setting in Indonesia
Early Mapping of Busang
Exploring by Westralian/Montague
Backgrounds of Felderhof and de Guzman
John Felderhof
Michael de Guzman
Potential of the Site ""
Can you scrape any Laramide references since I ASSume that is why you linked! Many, many TIAs.
Chuca
PS-Is it the Early Mapping Section??? ?

Thank You strenlich for the article.
Chuca - I will nerd the acrobat reader material for you, convert it into .txt and get it out to you later. Remind me if I forget.

I have received some suggestions from Ron Struthers. He has also gratiously offered to write some articles for us to insert into the newsletter. Support is growing quite well. Results are the only thing that matter though.

Meeting to introduce new safety group( Change is good-Health & Safety-Prime )The insurance definition of an accident is a true formula of components of the 1)- Number of hours worked, and 2) the amount of near misses times the correct acquarial numbers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<<The mining sector of the Ontario Natural Resources Safety Association (ONRSA) will use the occasion of its annual conference to showcase its transformation into the Mines and Aggregates Safety and Health Association.

The organization is one of three parts into which the ONRSA has been divided; the others deal with forestry and pulp and paper. The builders of the organization hope to have it completely set up by May 20, when the 2-day Mining Health and Safety Conference, an annual event, begins...>>
northernminer.com
We have to give some press to our Canadian neighbors. See folks, this insurance idea is new ( In Mining ) as well has been done befor in the other industries of the past decades' North America! Its time has come and we have announced it here.
Chuca
P.S.- I just told Chuck that we had to write the Northern Miner on this! Gosh, am I glad we started this Thread last week. Happy anniversary!

Nice find on that article. The face of industry is changing and it is not going to wait for any sector of industry to catch up. The entire world is changing the way they do business and this stock talk forum and the internet is a small but important example of that.

Chuck, it's been a busy week! News this week on some Great Basin Golds. Just wanted to recap by suggesting that some folks look into the Maxam and Jaba Threads and the links to the following websites/etc:
Subject 11565 (MXAM:BB)
maxamgold.com
Subject 9565 (JABAF:BB/A)
jaba.com
Both companies have the ABSOLUTE best map and property sections that I have ever seen!
Enjoy and be well, all Lurkers and S.I.ers too! ( I know you are out there as the WMA thread has rizen a notch to seven on the HotLinks in Mining and Natural Resources Section here- sit a spell, put your feet up.)
Chuca
P.S.- Anyone watch Golden Thunder today trade big at near 100K and up 6 cents? They are in the Basin at Cochise County.
P.P.S.- Anyone interested in us including in our future newsletter a supplemental version self study course on "How To Locate and Claim a Discovery." I think I will do some private writing for availability in the May issue, maybe June, I hate deadlines ( Maybe not at all in a NL)! But I am never late for an appointment, I must be too type "A"!!! ! ( But to look at Big Chuca, one would laugh and say -"The guy is a type -"B"!)( I am certain that is in everyone's mind!)
P.P.P.S.- Any Questions: Bondee@ma.ultranet.com OR
cbankgold@aol.com
P.P.P.P.S.- I'll be- even lil' GTH( GTH:VSE) has some news :
