Intro from an old guy

Hey, just joined, and find it all enthralling. Finally found a forum with local politics, actual experienced people, and the usual amount of dreamers.

I am a retired commercial oilfield diver, crane operator, certified weldor (have my own shop with PlasmaCam CNC capability), certified rigger, steel erection contractor, let's say I've been around the block so many times, I'm still dizzy.

I am interested in Nome, but not to go there and live in a spartan lifestyle, nor dive in freezing water. BTDT. A good Kirby and drysuit today is $10k new, plus a hot water unit, and decent compressor. I wouldn't dive a lot of the stuff that's standard today. And then there's the 8.5 hour open heart surgery I had ten years ago ............

Anyway, that brings me to the point.

I live in Utah. I am applying for some patents on gold mining equipment, and although I can't say now, through some special departments in the government that I am familiar with the workings. I am not going to reinvent the wheel, just use the same old physics a little differently. I think it would work in Nome's beach geology. This will have nothing to do with big commercial operations, just small commercial operators and recreational. There will be a special perk for anyone who is DISABLED, using the already in place ADA laws to their advantage.

I am looking for cohorts, collaborators, people who like good single malt scotch, old tequila and young women. I would like to get together with some people who want to help me bring these ideas to fruition, probably during the next season. Build in the off season, try during the season, refine, improve, and do it again.

The first two major advancements are in the patent process, but once those move along a little more, the rest of it is just standard placer mining.

I AM NOT LOOKING FOR INVESTORS, I'M NOT ASKING FOR MONEY. BUT COULD ALWAYS USE A COUPLE MORE.

I'm looking for on the ground people who have half a brain and their heads screwed on right. Work our asses off for six months, and spend the other six at Cabo or Kauai, or wherever.

I can be contacted at thegoldgopher@gmail.com

All I can say is that it should be an interesting season with the flood of new Sourdoughs, the big dogs, the leases, and everything that will go with it.

Steve

You sound like an interesting guy

I look forward to reading your posts. You mentioned your company bought a PlasmaCam system. That is a nice platform to start metal fabrication from. I'm seriously thinking about buying a MultiPlaz for my shop. It's the cadillac of plasma cutter/welders but it is not CNC capable like the PlasmaCam. On the other hand it costs $2k instead of 10-15k.

Re: You sound like an interesting guy

One of the main aspects of fabrication is producing repeatable results, which converts to interchangeability. You make 100 of them, pick one out, and it fits. This is crucial to the service part of our business.
