California Miners Meeting - The Small Miners Unite
Sunday 10am to 2pm at the Eagles Hall, 1492 Bourbon Street, Stockton CA 95204
(A second alternate meeting will be held in Brea, CA on October 15, 2016 -- see event details below.)

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.
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."
There is NO COST to attend this meeting, zero. If you plan to attend either of these meetings, an RSVP MUST be sent to us by email. You must include your name(s), phone number, which meeting you are attending and how many people in your party.

AME Roundup 2017
At Vancouver Convention Centre, 999 Canada Place #200. Vancouver, BC.
Welcome to Mineral Exploration Roundup 2017! This year’s conference will bring together geoscientists, prospectors, investors, suppliers and First Nation partners to share ideas that will help shape the future of mineral exploration and development. As the mineral exploration and development industry continues to work through the current downturn, we reflect on the importance of networking, professional development and relationship building with our partners, stakeholders and competitors. Mineral deposits are becoming harder to find; we must now travel to more remote locations, search deeper beneath cover, and sometimes settle for lower grades. These aspects, coupled with the challenging market conditions, remind us that we must be more creative and collaborative as we explore to discover and develop new mineral deposits.
