Claim Staking Rush Northern Quebec, Canada
March 1999 by Kenneth Harn...at least 10 junior mining companies have been busy pounding stakes in the ground of northern Quebec in hopes of claiming rich nickel deposits.
Miners are digging again where their forebears once unearthed riches from eight historic mines that honeycomb Sutter Gold Mining Company’s holdings about 50 miles southeast of Sacramento.
My partner had the contacts and it wasn’t long before we had an agreement in place and the company had a geologist on site. I recall a time when he was getting the lay of the land, so to speak, and he broke off a rock sample and inspected it with his magnifier.
Today, a Canadian company is reviving the mine to take advantage of silver prices that have tripled since 2009, giving the few dozen residents still living in the area more action than they’ve seen in decades.
Most gold-bearing veins in this region are controlled by fractures associated with the Melones Fault, a late Cretaceous structure that is 108 to 127 million years old.
Production of the Lithium will be completed in a 48-hour process with much less waste and a substantial increase of recovery rates from around 40% with conventional evaporation to near 90%.
Arizona-based International Silver Inc. is proposing an underground silver and zinc mine in Montana and has asked Butte-Silver Bow County to lease them the surface and mineral rights to hundreds of acres.
Since this position was the least desirable due to the hard physical labor, the bucking room was used as punishment. Do you have a mediocre worker? Bad attitude? Off to the bucking room!
