I'm sad for what I just Learned, Scott Harn owner of ICMJ has retired and sold the Magazine to a new owner. While I know the new owners will do a great job running the Mag but I will miss Scott, he was always there a the WPMA gold show in Monroe Washington. Great Guy and have known him for almost 30 years.

So, a claim flipper who has actually caused members of this forum to have to refile their claims. After selling screwed up claims..

Josh had a rough start but he's come a long way and grown into a better man these days. When Scott announced his retirement, Josh stepped up once again to help support our mining community, so let's do our best to support him in his new endeavor.
Putting together the ICMJ Magazine every month is still going to be just as tough of a job for him as it was for Scott and his whole family.
It's not an easy task and now, more then ever, he needs as much support as he can get.

Asmbandits is one, I helped him sort out the issue. he had to refile because the original location notice was trash. He doesn't really post here anymore but he had a thread about it. Clay Diggins knows what I'm talking about. Several of my mining friends, Dude is well known in my area.

I havent said anything that isnt true he isnt gonna sue me.

Thats exactly my concern as well as others. If he has "chops" they are pork chops and they came from safeway.

Maybe he's stopped flipping...maybe he isn't paper filing anymore...maybe he isn't in a constant back and forth with the other local claim flippers.

Maybe the ICMJ will improve we shall see.

The first line of your comment is most important.

However there are many of us that believe he grabbed an opportunity. Way more than he "stepped up"...refer to your first sentence for context.

You and I are definitely on the same page with our thoughts on Josh :laughing7:
I really hope that the ICMJ lives through this...

I wish the best for Scott and Sally. They have been a great asset and support for small miners. Good people. They will be missed.

Josh located 16 claims in the last year. :BangHead:
But, Barry I'm sure he set foot on every one and made a valid discovery!! :laughing9:::)::)::)::):protest:

Ok... he hasn't changed... but I hope he does soon... I've worked with his claims before as well and steered people that were looking at them in the right direction.

There are 2 sides of the story but number one, buyer beware. Any person buying a claim must do their due diligence, if you don't you deserve what happens. When it comes to gold, trust is not applicable but proper research is. Taking advantage of us gold miners is always out there for us. Just go to a gold show and you will see what I mean. They are playing to the dreamers, so sad. I feel for it many times in my past, the worst I bought was the roto pan, Lol.
