    Email From AMRA

    I just received this email from AMRA. I am posting this as an informative message to all those interested. I know several of you have negative views of AMRA, WMA, PLP, MMAC, and other oganizations that don't come to mind right now. I know it is a tall request but if you are one of those opposed, please don't highjack this thread with your negative views. Thank you.


    "Announcing the Miners Meetings in CA

    Uniting the Small Miners, we all come together
    Announcing the Miners Meetings in Brea Ca October 15th
    and Stockton CA October 23rd
    Hosted by Delta Gold Diggers, The GPAA, The WMA and AMRA

    Have you ever wondered what is it going to take to stop this insanity of politicians and environmental groups from taking away our rights? Well, it isn’t as difficult as you may think. First, we need to understand why the opposition to the small mining community, public land users, hunters, fishermen, off-roaders and other outdoor groups are so successful. In a few words, they are united and they have a level of communication we don’t. Have you wondered how to combat the lies these people tell about suction dredging? With information and facts. Not many of us can rattle off the suction dredge studies performed by Claudia Wise and Joseph Greene, quote US –v- Hicks, Granite Rock or the articles in the ICMJ about using a water pump without a permit. But that can change.

    We plan to change it. If we are to stop this, we must become united as we never have been before. We must be able to notify all of our community what is happening, what their rights are, what they need to do to help and we must do it in a precise and expedient manner. We’ve all received the “calls to action” emails where we have literally a day or two to write a Congressman, DFG, USFS or some other agency to voice opposition to a bill or regulation intent upon taking away more of our rights or public lands. We currently rely on forwarding emails sent to one, then another, then another with the hopes of reaching as many people as possible. This is ineffectual and needs to change. Our opposition is organized, and we must be just as well organized. We need to think about playing “offense” and not playing defense all the time.

    So what do we do to change this? Let’s take California and start there. Delta Gold Diggers President, Robert Guardiola, the GPAA, Brandon Johnson, the WMA, Craig Lindsay and AMRA are teaming up together to hold a meeting with every leader of every gold chapter, gold club, retail facility, manufacturer and association in California. This meeting will establish a list of contacts and the protocol to quickly and concisely distribute calls to action for the small mining community. We have guest speakers who will explain very precisely the state of small mining in America, explain all of the litigation in the recent past, mining district formation and future plans for tackling what can only be described as an out of control government and over-intrusive regulation. We will offer precise solutions on how you, your club or your company can get involved and make a difference and give you the tools to understand the laws as they pertain to public land use and small mining in America. This WILL NOT be used to promote any entity, it will be used exclusively for “getting out the word on important and urgent matters and to give every single person who attends, a complete understanding of what we need to do”. Urgent matters like bills which the political left seems so fond of trying to pass to ban mining, close large swaths of public land or other freedom opposing issues. The calls to action will be sent to the heads of each of these clubs, companies and associations, then forwarded to their members, followers and contacts. This should enable our industry to reach the most people in the shortest time.
    The NRA started small, got organized and now is the largest voice for the 2nd Amendment in America. We need to do the same thing, not just for California, but for every state. We are going to start with California, then move on to other states which are literally under attack from the environmental groups and the politicians in their pockets.

    By now, all of you are likely aware that the Brandon Rinehart CA Supreme Court case was lost. That political activism in the courtroom is present, there is little doubt anymore. We must, as Americans, rise up to an out of control government and we must unite now.
    If you are a President or Board member of a gold club, a business owner which deals with small mining, a manufacturer or other entity which has members or a customer base which can help fight the stunning attack on small mining, contact us about attending this event. Another opportunity we are missing is to partner with other public land users such as the off-roaders, the fishermen and women, the hunters and the hikers. They need to understand that what these politicians and environmental groups are doing will affect them immensely. They should be our allies as most of these groups we deal with have the same fundamental values we do and that is of freedom, independence and liberty. There is a fundamental difference between a “right” and a “privilege”. Privilege is what the hunters, hikers and other public land use people have in regards to public lands. Mining claim owners have “rights”. Rights that are passed by Congress and signed into law by the President of the United States which cannot be taken away, no matter how hard they try. Partnering with these other groups will help to explain what happens to them when these freedom killing bills and regulations are passed. In other words………we must unite, all of us to preserve what we love for future generations. Because if we don’t fight now, who will? Please reach out to these other groups and see if you can have a few of them attend this important meeting.

    There is NO COST to attend this meeting, zero. If you would like to make a donation to the Miner’s legal fund, they can be made at the meeting. The meetings will run from 10am to 2pm on each scheduled day (Brea is a Saturday, Stockton is a Sunday).

    The date(s) scheduled are:

    Saturday October 15th in Brea CA, 10am to 2pm
    Brea Lions Scout Center 401 S. Brea Blvd. Brea CA 92821
    Sunday October 23rd for Stockton CA 10am to 2pm
    Eagles Hall, 1492 Bourbon Street, Stockton CA 95204

    Once we receive an RSVP from you, we will send you back a confirmation notice.

    The Brea location is a little on the small side and will packed so make your reservations early for this one,,,, it will fill up. If you are contemplating which one to attend go north to Stockton,,,, it is a bigger facility.
