The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

Hi All

I just wrote a very lengthy post on this subject. Hit the wrong button and lost it.

So I will go short this time. Jim has kept this place open. Over the years we have all migrated like wandering buffalo to other forums. I think I had 20 on my bookmarks. But the Alaska Forum was always my favourite. So quite simply text or email your gold buddys. Tell them the Alaska Gold Forum is the place to be. If we all sit around one camp fire imagine the tales we can tell, the idea;s we can share and the helpfull tips.

A hundred camp fires all over the praires doesnt help anyone.

Lets get this place back to be what it used to be.

We owe that that to Jim and Marcie (RIP)

And if anybody disagree's with me, I will get on a plane fly to America and bonk ya on the head with a 12 oz blob of gold that I havent got yet. And if somebody knows Hoser John get him here. That man knows his stuff. And lets get Zooka back and Russ and Leonard, and all the rest of the old crew. There are just so many names gone.

Lets re-ignite this place. And make it a one stop shop.

Who wants to share on 20 or so gold forums. I'm only ever going to post here. From now on. Oh perhaps my forum on yahoo. But shortly I am about to go there and say migrate to Alaska lads, its all happening over there.

Arm Chair and Couch prospectors, well don't bother. Unless you been there done that, and are now just plumb tuckered out. Or to old:smile:

Cheers Trev . From the bottom of the World. Does that mean I am a bum:smile:

That sure sounds like a plan!

Lets see if I can find Steppgold's old address - hmmm


********************************
Edit
********************************
OOPS,

My address for SteppeGold (Robin Grayson) returned the email as undeliverable. Does anyone have a newer address than mine that is still being shown on the net? I had emiweb "AT" magicnet.mn

Thanks,

Joe

I'm still here Trev. This has always been 1 of the 5 forums I go to. I just don't post a lot. Sitting back reminiscing about my great past up there.

Forums are like living on a street. :welcome:

All day long... folks drive by.

Some wave, Some stop in and say; "Hello".

A few come by to look for "free resources". Borrow money, extract secret plans. Obtain free advice. :confused:

Trev, Beav? WHAT'S UP?

Bring some "CONTENT". "IDEAS", "NEWS"! :smile:

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

I'd like to see it like it was 10 years ago when the information flowed so freely. And GREAT information from those who MINE.
The pay-to-post time frame ran some good guys off and typically kills forums in general.

Last time I donated/paid to be on a forum TomAshworth.com went tits up. [from what it was] Not to mention losing all the information that kept me reading most of the winter.

When the know-it-all newbies get in here, great posts just stop. Let's hope it can be what it was... again soon.

Yes, I too would like to here from Oregonguy. If all didn't go as he expected, well then that is too be expected.... It is hard to make an income out of prospecting and I would love to hear of his adventure this last year, good or bad.

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

Folks,

I spoke with Oregon Guy a number of times in the late spring / early summer. It is his story to tell, but when he does, you will learn a lot.

As an aside, Aaron is a 110 volt kind of guy in a 220 volt system. A very likeable guy with a strong work ethic - but he just doesn't sit still for very long.

So, Aaron - Speak Up, eh! The good, the bad and the ugly are all lessons that should be shared.

Joe

Here also many peple worries about dying of goldpanning, or outdoor forums. They often say, that writting souls were stolen by FB.

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

So, winter is coming. What I heard from AK:

- Hey, they say, that you have frost up to 50C by winter...
- no, no, nonsense.... max -20C, not so bad...
- but they say so...
- Oooops - you mean outdoors? S yes, indeed... :devil:

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

Was only -36C last night just north of the mountains from Valdez Alaska.
Hauled in 5 arm loads of dry aspen to make it through the night.

Just another day in paradise.

What was your question again?

In the land of Oz, they would say we went walk-about forum-wise. But we almost always come back.

So no rebirth, just making the circuit and getting blisters on my feet. Early Oct, 24 klicks and about 80 kilos on my back wearing rubber boots and all I have to show for it is beaucoup blisters on my feet.

Did I mention just another day in paradise?

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

I'm still around.
Had a dismal year prospecting. Followed up several leads with no positive results. No complaints, that's mining. Still better than watching the boob tube.
Next year I may follow up on some of the unfinished leads from this year that did not get the attention they deserved.
The one thing that is consistent and that usually brightens my day, is the AK Gold Forum. It's still my fav for its consistent accurate info and experienced mining community.
A few examples.

Steppes book and the attendant controversy. Some liked the idea and others didn't. Bottom line was an airing of opinions and good info was spread about to many ignorant folks.
There was a long and fruitful exchange of ideas about sluices, their construction, operation, types etc that spawned some commercially made sluices that work really well. Some ideas emerged that were directed towards the DIY'er like the P/S sluice that I like very much. (BTY, P/S has a new crushing testing setup that I have to get time to eyeball.)

There are many others. Trev NZs many ideas concerning very fine and difficult micro gold recovery. Peluks successes with the same problems.
Geos play by play on his Ophir Ak claims is a direction we might consider.
Take some small problem and solicit opinions. See what happens.

Re: The Re-Birth of the Alaska Gold Forum

ICMJ, April 2013 has an article titled "Selenium, mercury and suction Dredging".
This article makes a good case for reexamining the enviros point of view regarding dredging. If you haven't read it, please do so. This evidence could be used to bolster the argument by dredgers that dredging does little harm and possibly some good to the environment.

My overall point is to include the idea of a coordinated response to the false and misleading conclusions that the rabid enviros use to justify their theft of our mining rights.
They have used tactics straight out of the Communist Manifesto and Mein Kamp plus a couple of other bodies of bs to rationalize their misleading campaigns against mining.
We must stand up and refute each and every attempt to diminish our established rights using truth and evidence.

On Yahoo today there was an article about the best states to live in. N. Dakota was number one. California was number 50, dead last. No surprise. One of the reasons of NDs rank was NDs mining development. Another was its self reliance. Many years ago I seem to recall a statement and saw the evidence that the Northernmost countries were the most energenic and successful countries, intimating that perhaps the cold weather was a factor in their success by weeding out the weak and lazy. Maybe yes, maybe no. Russia could even be considered a skewed example, that is, in spite of Communism and the near complete domination of its people by commies and tsars, they still have spirit enough to button up, buckle down and survive.

EOR (End Of Rant)
