    If you paste this link you will get the 'AUNFD' message board, if you're interested. Why it's not connected is a mystery to me. Yes, I know, the link says 'AUNFF' but you will get 'AUNFD'.

    Even though the link says 'AUNFF' (pre-split) you will get the 'AUNFD' message board.

    Hecla is trying to buy hollister mine in Elko Nevada

    Hollister Mine was the property of Great Basin Gold which is now defunct for various reasons. The potential sale has nothing to do with Hollister being a poor property, rather the failure of the company owning it. Great Basin was promising. I owned some shares. Liquidation is a good time to get a bargain.

    This was posted last year in Presidio County, Tx. It is not some new revelation:

    County water board adopts new rules, hires consultant
    December 20th, 2012 under Top Stories

    By ALBERTO TOMAS HALPERN

    PRESIDIO COUNTY – The Presidio County Underground Water Conservation District (PCUWCD) adopted new rules and hired, on a part-time basis, a professional groundwater and mineral resource consultant at a regular meeting on Monday.

    The move, along with bringing on board Michael Gershon as the board’s counsel in July, gives the water board the necessary teeth, know-how, and regulatory power to effectively regulate groundwater throughout the county and make decisions on water production permits.

    A September moratorium on water permits is still in effect, until the board’s next meeting on January 17, water board general manager Rudy Garcia said. Board members did, however, vote to lift the moratorium for emergency permitting purposes only.

    Gershon, who works in the Lloyd Gooselink Law Firm in Austin, works on water issues throughout the state. He represents water utilities, groundwater conservation districts, municipalities, landowners and business interests on matters related to water development, management, rights, and quality, among other aspects.

    Allan Standen, President of Allan R. Standen LLC, a groundwater and natural resource consulting firm based in Austin, was tapped to advise the board and work on special projects.

    According to his firm’s website, Standen has 35 years experience as a natural resource consultant with expertise in groundwater, mineral and geological issues. His groundwater services include providing hydrogeological support for litigation, quantifying water use, assisting in framing groundwater district rules and regulations, designing groundwater level and quality monitoring programs, and overseeing well drilling activities.

    Standen came highly recommended by Paul Weatherby, an employee of the Middle Pecos Groundwater Conservation District.

    “He’ll be an asset to Rudy [Garcia],” board member Carlos Nieto said after making a motion to use Standen’s services. “We definitely need help. He’s aware our resources are limited, but the value of him is timely.” Board members agreed.

    A new rule adopted by board members is that all water wells, existing and new, must be registered with the board. This updates an old rule that only enforced the registration of new wells.

    During the public comment portion of the meeting, Cibolo Creek Ranch owner John Poindexter reiterated criticism he and some neighbors had made toward the Rio Grande Mining Company and its Shafter silver mine. He cautioned the board as they move forward in the future.

    “Our principal concern is to call to the attention of the board the peril we see on the county’s water resources by plans of the Shafter silver mine,” Poindexter said. He doesn’t oppose the mine, only, the “unwise use of the county’s resources as published by the mine.”

    James King of King Land & Water also cautioned the board as they move forward in their future endeavors, saying they need to be cautions and look into the science before making decisions that impact the area.

    Former Presidio County Judge Monroe Elms and Shafter resident agreed, “We need to predict and project outcomes,” of water usage.

    An attorney representing Rio Grande Mining Company withdrew a motion for a rehearing on the board’s moratorium after new rules were adopted.

    “With the board’s adoption of rules, we’re looking forward to working with you,” the attorney said.

    During his report, Garcia said he had visited Rio Grande Mining Company’s site recently and has come to the conclusion that there are two different aquifers used there and that recharge levels are rising nearby. “Any withdrawal will not affect” neighbors’ aquifers, Garcia concluded.

    Board members Nieto, Patt Sims, and Jack Wood expressed their willingness to work more closely with the silver mine in the future and cited the mine’s openness.

    “They’ve always been real open,” Wood said. Sims and Nieto agreed.

    Board president Jim Mustard wasn’t so sure. “I don’t know if I concur. Those are just personal observations. We have started a discussion and hope we continue.”

    Mustard hopes to look into all of the mine’s water activities and would like to see a presentation from the mine, for the sake of the general public.

    $1.50/sh (before reverse split) X 5 = $7.50 (after reverse split). That's my rough recollection. Sandstorm is a good company with many gold streams. I have owned companies where the post split price declines. The argument for up-listing to NYSE is greater liquidity from institutional buyers who can't own 'penny stock' shares from smaller exchanges. I would say Aurcana will do fine as they are loaded with potential. Time will tell.

    Sandstorm Gold (now listed on NYSE as SAND) did a 1 for 5 reverse split to accomplish up-listing. The post split price (as I recall) became $7.50 per share. It's currently around $12.00 but has been over $15.00. This should be beneficial for Aurcana as well.

    I believe we are still early in the game. Clearly there have been problems with the coal streams requiring additional company resources. Sandstorm management is first rate, ethical and concerned with shareholder value. None of this necessarily translates into immediate jumps in the share price, which is frustrating to momentum traders. I believe that like Sandstorm Gold the Sandstorm Metals and Energy will be a winner with ample rewards for the patient investor.

    I contacted IR regarding earnings date. They are shooting for the 3rd week of February for both companies, though there was not a specific date. This was per an e-mail I received.

    With all due respect, LBSR has claim(s) '1000 ft' away from the particular mine in question, according to IR. By inference this holding is important in the recognizing the necessity of intelligent development of those resources. I would also posit that Alaska is promoting mining interests in some locales, eg. UURAF. IR has posted the Appeals information on Facebook and Twitter.

  • The following came from 'Mining'... Please verify the tenor of the ruling. It would seem to be favorable to the Northern Pipes Super Project prospects. More information should be forthcoming.

    "A federal appeals court upheld on Monday the government's decision to allow a uranium mine near the Grand Canyon National Park to resume operation.

    Cronkite News reports that the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that no environmental protection laws had been violated by the Bureau of Land Management when it permitted the Arizona 1 mine to resume operation in 2009 followed a 17-year production hiatus.

    Alan Gardner, co-chairman of the Arizona-Utah Local Economic Coalition, hailed the decision as advanced the interests of both the local economy and the nation as a whole.

    "It's exactly what should be done," said Gardner. "The country needs the uranium."

    Conservation groups claim, however, that the federal appeals court has set a dangerous precedent which will permit "zombie mines" to operate under redundant environmental regulations without proper oversight by the authorities.

    "They are basically zombie mines that will live perpetually without ever being subject to new environmental reviews," says Taylor McKinnon, wildlands campaigns director with the Center for Biological Diversity."

  • Go to 'Zero Hedge' (I can't post the link) and read 'What Happened to Precious Metals'. As I posited yesterday, hedge funds (146) holding Apple are getting margin calls; ergo liquidation of their precious metals positions.

    It may be that some of the 146 hedge funds with Apple positions are getting margin calls, necessitating selling other holdings. Virtually all the precious metals had big drops. I believe this sub-9.00 level is a gift long term.

    You accomplish nothing by trying to educate these people. They're not investors who are interested in facts. Their hysterical rants don't deserve sophisticated responses. Put them on 'ignore' and leave them alone, like you might with a child throwing a tantrum.

    Excellent point. I continue to enjoy your posts. You are a beacon in a waste land of babel. I have most other posters in the 'ignore' bucket. I concur that Arizona will probably be the most rewarding in the short term. It's an exciting time.

    The SeekingAlpha post was quite illuminating. Tactful consideration in pointing out issues with that analysis is also useful. That is the sort of thing that benefits everyone. Clearly there are pros and cons in holding every equity, natural resource or otherwise. Jocelyn August's breakdown of the contributing factors to an explorer's price-per-share moves was illuminating. There's nothing wrong with pointing out areas of risk; as I said, that helps our due diligence. However, the noisome attacks on a CEO or his decision-making by some is not a useful heuristic. Happy Thanksgiving.

    My friend, please don't dignify the 'bashers' with responses that attempt to refute their assertions. You achieve nothing. The purpose of 'bashers' is more related to psychopathy than to rational discussion. I have enjoyed your posts over the past years and always look forward to them. I note a couple of the usual 'basher' suspects at iHUB: 'CEMJQ Multi-Millionaire' and 'yougottabekiddingme.' They clog the potential for right-minded discourse and news analysis with embarrassing jibberish. Let's agree to put these sorts of ignore and get this message board into a venue for intellectual exchange.
