wow.thank you brad

That is a very one sided argument .

Driving factor of opposition....

Is fear that a mine nearby will drive away potential tourists to the ghost town and there for a threat.Since brad has promoted the abandoned mining town on you tube and spent 1.4 million to acquire his own remote private playground. The fact of the matter what is presented is hysteria disguised as environmentalism by some one with an ulterior motive to protect his perceived bottom line. While he owns the town he does no own the surrounding mines or mineral rights.

This is what influencers like him try to propagate with their agenda with statements that are simply incorrect.


Federal laws that regulate mining companies to comply with the following regardless of what state the mine operates in by foreign or locally own companies.



  • National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
  • Clean Air Act (CAA)
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Clean Water Act (CWA)
  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
  • Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)

Mining companies regardless of being foreign or american provide jobs and associated jobs. Economic activity incurs taxes.

An influencer provides jobs for one person.

if he wanted to make money there are way easier ways to do it.i believe that he is really trying to save the history of the area,i have friends that help out there.and saleing a few tshirts is not going to make you rich,iam a miner but would never destroy history,just for money,

Hola amigo

With the old ghost town wish him well but....

I have no doubt he is passionate about the history. But he has to face reality you cannot expect mining to never recommence even in a old historical district. Its like buying a property next to an airport then whine about the Airport.
