Tweeter,
The stooges will not win.

BMD fought "City Hall" and won. That cannot happen without a base of standing in the community that reflects a test of time integrity, ethics and moral conviction to stand for what is right. That they could call on those for help during the arduous journey speaks to that which only test of time honor enjoys.

I find it interesting that the theories espoused along this way have/are proven up and the potential for this company that we once conversed are still intact. My DD says we are close and that the last pieces of the puzzle are being put in place. IMO I have two ways to be made whole and the first one is buying this stock at these levels.

Eric Charters is a sceptic yet out of the box thinker who has a long test of time credibility at Silicon Investor. We have wrangled over the Prairie Gold Model for years. Again it comes down to the "Process" stupid. He is a great read.

I worked on the Birch Mountain area for Tintina mines
for two years. My impression from my own field work, and
from other's interpretation is that there is gold in the rocks in that area. This is supported by the following observations by myself.
1. I panned and observed gold from numerous streams in the area. I also microscope work on the samples, observing gold.

2. I crushed and panned limestone in the area, and observed one grain of gold in one sample.

3. I observed rusty mineralized limestone in the area on frequent occasions.

4. Streams that contain gold, are near rusty mineralized bedrock.

5. Other prospectors historically have mined placer gold in the area. This is in literature.

6. Lac MInerals assayed samples for 6 months in their lab in Colorado, prior to taking an option with Tintina. They were in the process of coring rock, and assaying it when taken over by Barrick, who dropped the program.

7. I talked to people from the GSC who had stream sediment and microscopy programs underway in the area, who were finding and photographing precious metals and they were of the opinion that the precious metals had a local origin.

8. It is widely hypothesized that most precious metals deposits in placers have a local origin worldwide.

9. I talked to Suncor and Syncrude Engineers who had tailings programs to recover precious metals from the Tar Sands tailings that they had engineered. They estimated up to 9 dollars gold, platinum and other metals in their tailings. This has to be from bedrock, as the oil sands are actually a bedrock formation. Many undisturbed but unconsolidated deposits in the area from post Cambrian times are in fact rock formations but have the consistency of clay or sand.

10. As an assayer I know that is extremely difficult to assay rock that has hydrocarbons in it for several reasons. This reported problem compounded the perception of the lack of integrity in discovery reports.

11. Other reports of precious metals in oil sands are found in Australia, Russia, Colorado, and Venezuela.

12. The basement fault that runs through the area that contains the gold, also runs through Yellownkife, a known hardrock gold area.

13. The rocks in the area resemble in many ways the silica poor Carlin formation limestones in Nevada. This was conveyed to me by a geologist, Ken Darke.

I still think more works needs to be done, but my suspicions are that some formations in the area may be auriferous and processes would need to be found to make that stuff economic.

It is my understanding that you participated in a independent audit at the behest of the CDNX and Birch Mountain Resources, and that Birch appealed the ruling due to what they claimed was a apprehension of bias. I understand the DECISION OF THE LISTED COMPANY REVIEW PANEL ruled in favor of Birch in that among other issues the AMCL was not acting as a independent technical auditor and in fact allowed Mr. Robert Holland to dictate the outcome of your report. Would you agree with or deny that finding?

Further, are you still being investigated and by who?

Thank you in advance for your response.

"errors in the AMCL report etc." , i.e. "With respect, it is difficult to understand how Mr. Holland could or should possess this "vetting" authority on a report ultimately prepared over the signature of the experts at AMCL - particularly strange is the fact that in its written submissions to the Panel, the Exchange highlighted the ability of the Exchange to seek out the assistance of outside experts when it lacked the necessary expertise "in house". If this explained why AMCL was ultimately retained, why would an officer of the Exchange yet think it appropriate to hold some sort of "vetting power".

It is not necessary to proceed further in the discussion of the claim of an apprehension of bias. We repeat that we have received nothing from the Exchange that attempted to undercut, clarify or interpret these various reported events and conversations. In the end, therefore, we conclude that Birch Mountain has satisfied us of the existence of an apprehension of bias and we are not satisfied that it could be comfortably and fairly remedied,"

Birchrunner,

Thanks for stopping by. As you could tell I was working hard but having fun. I think we will have a beverage sooner rather than later. Those lab rats are great guys and talented top down. IMO they are going to provide a lot of shareholder value in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Three AGM's in a row and I can't begin to tell you the value of that.

The short answer to Ft. McMurray, VIP Syncrude tour, Aggregate DD, and a small, very small property tour (when considering the amount of acres Birch has), would be that V.P Don Dabbs and his thirty (sorry Don)years of affiliations with the Oil Sands principals, executives, and governmental permitting agencies has built a reputation that almost stands alone. I saw first hand the friendship and respect accorded him by a very senior Syncrude executive.

We have aggregate, almost a monopoly of it, because of our location to the Oil Sands projects, and it is in extremely short supply that without it, it either shuts hundreds of millions of dollars in projects off, or the costs get exorbitant primarily because of haul costs. They need it to the tune of millions of tons a year, so say the projections. One way or another Birch will be in the aggregate business and the stockholders will benefit. Glen De Paoli armed with all his degrees and experience met with some aggregate people and for that we are in very capable hands. This IMO put a floor under this stock.

birchmountain.com

With respect to the precious metals issue and this still hasn't been proven, IMO Birch will demonstrate economics and extraction. JV's with the Oil Sands operators if the if's are demonstrated then they must, as any economic additions would reduce the very high costs of doing business.

No question about it, I had fun and business with quality people, gained a lot of knowledge, and saw how these puzzles are being put in place.

Suprised that no one is following this great growth company in the oil sands region of Alberta. 12 month target $12 U.S.

I bought a few shares today on the pullback. Don't see how they can lose because their product will be in demand for decades and they will have virtually no competition. I think a 12.00 target is very conservative. Keith

Hi Kieth

I agree! I was hoping that we would see this pull back as the market now begins to see the potential. The stock is now in play as volume begins to increase and investors begin to understand why this company is worthy.

I too am buying on this gift of a "pull back" and will buy more on any further weakness. Nice to know there are others who understand just how great an opportunity this is to get richer.

All the best!

Dave

BMD looking strong today. Have you done any DD on Game Host Income(GH-UN.V). They own the only casino in Ft. McMurray plus another casino in Calgary. Sounds like a good pick and shovel play on the oil sands...there's going to be a lot of money to spend on entertainment! They have a dividend of .12 per month which should offer some downside protection. Keith

Yes

I think GH.UN is an excellent investment! They have excellent properties with exceptional locations in Alberta. I am very impressed with the Deerfoot casino which they have a 40% interest. All of their locations should attract a growing appetite for this type of entertainment and convention orientated package.

very few shares outstanding means that it trades very thinly but the trend is a solid up, so a great hold with the likely hood of increasing distributions.

Good pick in my opinion!

Dave
