Brea, California
California Miners Meeting - The Small Miners Unite
Saturday 10am to 2pm at the Brea Lions Scout Center, 401 S Brea Blvd., Brea, CA 92821
(A second alternate meeting will be held in Stockton on October 23, 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.
