In our April and May 2001 issues we reported on the administrative hearings involving the 16-to-1 Mine and their fight against countless MSHA citations, many of which seemed to be driven by inspectors following their own agenda.
Sterling Mining Company has resumed initial production at the Sunshine Mine in Idaho. The company anticipates a steady increase in production over the next three years until an average daily processing rate of 1,000 tons per day is achieved.
Scientists from the state Department of Natural Resources reported that they recently discovered the highest concentrations of gold particles ever found in the state during routine soil sampling near Soudan.
New regulations have given the enforcement arm of the WDFW official “police” status, with the authority to issue citations, pursue warrants, make arrests and confiscate items.
MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) reports that a pair of miners used oxygen-supplying self-rescue devices to save two of their co-workers who were in danger of suffocation at the Ohio Valley Coal Company's Powhatan No.6 mine near St. Clairsville, Ohio.
This mine was a real wonder of engineering, and the water supply and drifts had to be carefully managed to keep it in operation. In fact, it didn’t close due to lack of gold, but instead closed with the fall of the Roman Empire.
