Montana Mining Association Raising Cash
October 1999 by Associated PressThe Montana Mining Association is trying to raise more than $150,000 to pay lawyers to continue the battle to overturn Initiative 137, the 1998 ballot issue that banned cyanide processing at most new or expanded gold mines.
I suspect detailed geological mapping and prospecting would lead to discovery of one or more overlooked gold deposits in the district even though it has been heavily prospected in the past.
While recovery rates are important, they must necessarily be secondary to the volume of material processed. Running more material at lower recovery rates is generally preferable to increasing the efficiency of the system.
The Washington Department of Ecology recently issued a revised environmental study of a proposed Okanogan County gold mine. The study is an amendment to one done in 1997 for the proposed Crown Jewel open pit mine on Buckhorn Mountain near Chesaw.
The something extra is adventure. I thank God for my gold fever. It has made so much of this adventure possible and caused my path to cross with many persons who have left fond memories indelibly imprinted in my memory.
