Re: anyone near mcgrath

Ya mind me asking about what happened? Your plans falling thru and all? Was you supposed to work for the outfit? Is the operation up and running or what. I know a bit about Ophir. When I was there Gold was hard to come by. Unless you had big equipment.

Re: Day care at McGrath

I also had planed to come and dredge on the claims and did get your email concerning the water issue. Thanks for letting me know before I was to head that way. The associated costs of getting all the equipment, camping and personal gear into Ophir will put a good size dent in your wallet. Would have been more than a disaster to have such a capital outlay and not get dredge at all. No one can predict Mother Natures ways but the governments HARP operation does modify them.
I appreciated all the information on the operation and the many names of pilots and others that were needed to plan the transportation into the claim. I am looking forward to prospecting on the claims when the weather has provided ample amount of snow for the spring run thaw, that would provide the needed water in the creek to dredge. Keep me updated on the success of the wash plant operation, as I may want to ship in some bigger equipment by barge for next year.
Thanks again Chuck for the heads up on the conditions.

Wes

Re: Day care at McGrath

The correct acronym is HAARP and any connection to wx modification is junk science. No let me rephrase it, it is junk speculation.

My qualifications? I was one of three researchers who compiled the library the author of the book used. My contribution was the science and engineering aspects as well as being the obnoxious loudmouth.

No evidence, no theories and because of no observed phenomenon, no hypothesis linking HAARP to weather. I live within 100 miles of the HAARP installation and any phenomenon would be observed here first. Another researcher lives within 20 miles and nada. The other lives off the Parks Hwy around 150-200 miles, nada.

Normally I try to stay out of discussions of junk science, but it was my research. I jumped in because the conspiracy theorists will use this link to support their nonsense.

HAARP

I don't know if it will affect the weather but aviation charts advise to avoid HAARP localities as they are putting out so much power that that it can fry your airplane radios. If electromagnetism from a cell phone can be dangerous overflying a HAARP station could be cheaper that a vasectomy.

GeoWizard, So where in exactly in Ophir are your claims? A couple of yrs ago I was out there quite abit. Know 2 of the guys with operations out there. Then they were the only two in Ophir exactly as far as I knew. 1 on the runway. The other about 1/2 mile back towards Takotna.

Yea, I was looking at some archives. Looks like your into it pretty heavy. Like I said I was working out that way a couple of yrs ago. Got to know people at Yankee, Little Creek, Squaw Creek, and at Ophir. LOL with your mining.

Re: Day care at McGrath

Hey Chuck, you have made a pretty good name for yourself around McGrath and Takotna. ROFLOL.
Anyone interested in going out there, don't expect a cordial welcome from the locals.

Re: Day care at McGrath

I am mining my own mine.
I also live a righteous life.
People work for me for months on a handshake.
Because my word means something.
Therefore I don't care if people know who I am on this board.
You apparently do care, even though you are running a "commercial" operation. Kind of curious.
I couldn't give a hoot less about being "a big dog".
I do my thing and try to stay out of everything else.
But, according to the previous claimowner, promises were made and you crossed a line.
Kissing rings, lol, you are the one watching too many movies.
The miners in this area have generally gotten along well for the better part. We watch out for each others backs, help each other when needed(not often), loan tools, parts and such.
I don't expect you will be included in this friendliness.
You are an example of why we piss on the leg of outsiders.

Que the "arguing on the internet" jpg.

Re: Day care at McGrath

I find it interesting, but not unexpected that you immediately attack your victims reputation.
Making him out to be a gun hoarding, anti-big government type. Hell, you just described half of rural Alaska.
You are apparently adept at the type of bs that many of us chose to live out here to avoid.
We do what we say and say what we do.
You didn't help your position by "claiming" everything on your claims on the local board.
Many of the local miners have loaned stuff back an forth. My company has a drill in that area(not on your claims) that is being moved farther away from your claims.
If what R says is complete bs, then I apologize.
But, the damage has been done. Even if it pans out that you were completely in the right, you have a long road ahead of you repairing your reputation.
