A GREAT SPEAKER AT CONFERENCE WAS JOHN KAISER, NEWSLETTER - BOTTOM FISHING REPORT, A CANADIAN NOW BASED IN USA. CONSTANTINE METAL RESOURCES LTD GAVE ME PERMISSION TO VIDEO THEIR DISPLAY AT THE CAMBRIDGE HOUSE RESOURCE INVESTMENT CONFERENCE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. 6,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED. CAMBRIDGE HOUSE HAS A RESOURCE CONFERENCE APPROX EVERY MONTH TO SEPTEMBER IN DIFFERENT CITIES IN NORTH AMERICA - GO CANADA GO! I MET MANY FASCINATING PEOPLE IN VANCOUVER BC. ITIS A NICE AND CLEAN TOWN. ONE OF NORTH AMERICA'SMOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES. I MET AT THE LARGE DANCE OF ROUNDUP 2010, OLDEST TECHNICAL MINING EXPO - A COLLEGE CLASSMATE, A GEOLOGIST, PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR, WHO IS NOW A SIGNIFICANT PERSON IN NORTH AMERICAN MINING. CONSTANTINE METAL RESOURCES LTD HAS MINING PROPERY IN THE FAMOUS LARGE YIELD MINING DISTRICT OF TIMMINS, ONTARIO, CANADA. http://www.constantinemetals.com 800 W Pender Street # 1500 Vancouver BC V6C 2V6 Tel 604-629-2348 Fax 604-608-3878 CONSTANTINE RESOURCES LTD HAS A GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE. THREE OF THEIR LEADERS HAVE EACH GIVEN ME QUALITY TIME 1. CFO, FORMER STOCK BROKER WHO KNEW THE PEZ, AT THE SAN FRANCISCO HARD ASSETS CONVENTION, NOVEMBER 2009 Senior business people in Vancouver with a unique wry smile and a twist of light in their eye recount eye witness episodes of Murray Pezim. 2. PRESIDENT, A GEOLOGIST, AT THE HARD ASSETS CONVENTION IN DOWNTOWN SAN FRANCISCO NOV 2009. He let me pick up the 14,827 OPT-AU SPECIMEN THE SIZE OF AN AMERICAN HARDBALL, BUT IT FELT MUCH HEAVIER IN MY HAND. (They would not let me take it 400 yards to hold it in the sunlight on the sidewalk, nor trade it for a goldfoil wrapped chocolate medallion, but the president did let me hold it for a long time, so much so that I can still remember that unique stain against my forearm front muscle fibre strands.) 3.

APPARENTLY CONSTANTINE HAS A DEPARTMENT JUST FOR THE SALES OF SUCH SPECIMENS. THEIR DISCOVERY IS ALSO A FASCINATING STORY. 1. 13,135 OZ PER TON 2. 14,827 OZ PER TON 3. 14,382 OZ PER TON 4. 17,575 OZ PER TON 5. 16,969 OZ PER TON (None of them weigh a ton, that is their ratio to host rock prorated up to a ton.) AND I THOUGHT A 20th CENTURY CANADIAN 2,OOO OPT DIAMOND CORE SAMPLE WAS HIGH. A SENIOR INVESTOR SAID HE WOULD NOT BELIEVE IT EVEN IF HE SAW IT, EVEN THOUGH I SHOWED IT TO HIM IN PRINT IN THE HEMLO BOOK BY MATTHEW HART. "LOOK FOR GOLD WHERE GOLD WAS FOUND" CAUTIONED ME ABOUT REPORTING SUCH INFORMATION. WELL THERE ARE NOW 5 OTHER WITNESSES THAT SUCH GRADES ARE NOT RELEGATED TO ONLY HISTORIC LEGENDS FROM THE 1800S GOLD RUSHES. PAGE 117, PARAGRAPH 3: "The gold in the core in the photograph on Frank Lang's wall, from one of his Quebec properties, grades 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton." PARAGRAPH 5: "Considerable amounts of free gold appear in the diamond drill core from Hole No. 29 of D'Or Val Mines Ltd.'s Beacon Property. While it assayed at 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton, this spectacular sample is not considered representative of overall grade." NEXT PAGE: "But you never know what's down there, do you? You never know until you drill. ... In quartz, the gold is in veins. You could miss that by a quarter of millimeter, you'd never find it. How many more are there, that's all I ask. How much gold, just as rich as that, is down there?" - Frank Lang, legendary mining promoter, Hughes-Lang Group, downtown Vancouver BC Canada. Quotes from book: "Golden Giant: Hemlo and the Rush for Canada's Gold" By Matthew Hart, 1945- Published by Douglas & McIntyre, (c) 1985, 176 pages ISBN 0888944675, 9780888944672 http://www.amazon.com/Golden-giant-Hemlo-rush-Canadas/dp/0888944675/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1231795050&sr=11-1 My book is signed by Schiralli with message and is a textbook. The 14,827 OPT-Au sample did hand-weigh approx 3 times more, than if solid steel. 16,000 OPT is half gold ore if considering 32,000 ounces per ton (OPT). The president of Constantine Metal Resources Ltd, a geologist, did say specific gravity testing was done on the 16,969 OPT specimen - the results indicated it breached 17,000 OPT but held to a lower figure so as to allow for a small percentage variance by another heavy metal, so the reported gold grade was toned down to 16,969 of oz/ton. Apparently they will never mill those samples.

Gold Mining and Historical Museum - Gympie
Gympie is about 160 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane. The city lies on the Mary River, which floods the town periodically. At the 2011 census, Gympie had a population of 18,602. The Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum houses memorabilia from the early gold mining era, as well as displays showcasing military, rural, transport, communications, and steam development in Australia. The town of Gympie has an important and colourful history, from being cited as the "Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy" to being the home of Andrew Fisher, Labor's second Prime Minister. Everybody is invited to visit our Museum where you can find out just how Gympie saved Queensland and discover more of the region's past and present. The Museum houses a vast collection of documentation, artifacts and photographs dating from the discovery of gold in 1867 by James Nash to the recently closed operations of the Gympie Eldorado Goldmine. In 1867, James Nash discovered 72 ounces of Gold in just 6 days. This started the Gold Rush in Gympie and it became known as The Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy. Gympie has has seen the rush for alluvial gold, deep reef mining, reprocessing of tailings and the re-opening of the mines in the mid 1980s. With the recent cessation of mining, there still remains the lure of residual gold and there may well be more to come. You can learn all about this, and much more of Gympies colourful and historical past right here at the Museum. The site comprises over 5 hectares containing over 30 display areas in and around 15 major buildings. Gympie is heralded as the town that saved Queensland from bankruptcy due to drought and low wool prices back in the 1800s. Thanks to James Nash discovery of gold where the Gympie Town Hall now stands back in 1867, the Gold Rush was started. Within 6 months of James Nash’ windfall, over 15,000 men had raced to Gympie to dig for their fortunes. The town grew at a rapid rate and amazingly many of the original buildings are still there. Gympie's Gold Mining and Historical Museum showcases not only Gympie's rich gold mining history but also other aspects of the region's past era including steam machinery, agricultural, dairying, vehicles, gemstone and shell collections. Andrew Fisher House (named after Australia's second Labour Prime Minister 1908-1915) is part of the Museums collection of historical buildings housed with period furniture. Also the award winning Military Collection of the Fifth Light Horse Regiment which includes military equipment and memorabilia of all sons and daughters of the Gympie area that went to war. Try your luck at the Museum's Gold Panning and take home a specimen of Gympie Gold - a great time for the whole family. Tour groups welcome.

Gold prospecting in Coromandel Forest Park
In the Parakiwai Valley of Coromandel Forest Park, gold prospecting is closing conservation land and destroying the habitat of Archey's frogs. Local guide Clive Duxfield showed Forest & Bird Regional Manager Rebecca Stirnemann through the valley, and discovered fresh damage from prospecting sites. The area is known habitat for the citically endangered Archey's frog, and even with the best efforts at mitigation, there is going to be an impact on them. These frogs are more precious than any gold. The Government should be protecting the remaining places where they live, not allowing gold mining to destroy this specially protected conservation land. Learn more about these frogs and their valley in the Spring issue of Forest & Bird magazine, in letterboxes this week. Join Forest & Bird to get your copy: http://www.forestandbird.org.nz/joinus

The Pelton wheel was an early type of water turbine. In this case a surprisingly small wheel (about 4 horse power) was driving a 5 stamp quartz crushing battery used in the mid to late 1800's for gold mining in New Zealand. The early days of the New Zealand Gold Rush occurred in 1861 with alluvial or placer gold fields of Otago in the South Island and quartz hard rock mining in the North Island of New Zealand in 1867. Gold Rush Online (www.KaeLewis.com) includes descriptions of the gold rush and a database which allows you to search over 50,000 entries of registered gold mining claims called miners rights and other records. We strongly recommend visiting Gold Fields Mining Centre in Otago, New Zealand where you can see the old gold mining methods in action using original equipment. Goldmine-Experience is another excellent display including a stamper battery, separation table, a mine and working gold mining and separation equipment at Thames in the North Island (www.goldmine-experience.co.nz).

Gold Rush Expeditions -Walker Gold Mine for Sale - Montana - 2016
The Walker mine is located just outside of Twin Bridges, Montana in the Tidal Wave mining district. Mines in this area were first located in the mid 1800s and have documented production into the 1930s. The Walker and the surrounding mines were historically worked for gold. The Walker claim consists of a series of shafts, adits, and prospects that may interconnect on lower levels. There is a collapsed headframe above what looks to be a double compartment shaft and a collapsed adit that would be accessible with some clearing. An easily accessible 2 wheel drive road to the claim will have you on your way to finding gold in this beautiful Montana landscape in no time.

The Old Ghost Road Mountain Biking New Zealand
Mountain biking The Old Ghost Road, the South Island, New Zealand. PLANNING & PREPARATION https://tinyurl.com/y9m3nkmw ROUTE DESCRIPTION https://tinyurl.com/ycynaxd8 It is a 2-3 day bikepacking great ride, and also an excellent tramping or walking trail. For my trip I took my time - four days - so I could make this film…and also because I’m no fit or expert biker. The Old Ghost Road is an 85km single track mountain bike trail and walking path in the upper South Island of New Zealand. It begins at Lyell - near the town of Murchison - and it ends on the West Coast at the small settlement of Seddonville. The Old Ghost Road traverses mountains, deep river gorges, dense forest and rough backcountry. It is remote, exposed, with alpine sections above the treeline. On a clear day, there are incredible views in every direction. The steep, jagged rocks and golden tussocky peaks are spectacular.  The Old Ghost Road is so named because segments of the trail were former gold mining towns, now abandoned to nature. On the first day, as you ride up the hill from Lyell, there are fragments of these previous settlements. They include schools, hotels and communities that sprung up around the gold rush of the late 1800s. While there isn’t much left to see of these towns (a few walls, metal implements, a graveyard), it is fascinating to think that what is now a wilderness area was once well populated.  Because I wanted to take my time - taking photos, filming and exploring along the way - I decided to spend three nights (three and a half days) in the huts on the trail. There was also the small matter of not being fit or young. I could do with losing a few pounds too.  Most people do the ride in two nights (two and a half days) and some masochists in one night (two days). A story was circulating among riders on the trail about a guy who rode to there and back in a day...apparently stopping at the Seddonvile general store and pub to buy a muesli bar.  Had I not been messing about with cameras along the way, I think I could have managed it in three days. But then, what’s the rush? I still enjoyed the buzz of zipping through the downhill sections, but then also had time to scout the alluring side paths, rivers and hills.

Minelab SDC2300 Gold Nuggets Prospecting south of Rapid City SD
WWW.CHRISSPENCER.US Running the SDC2300 from Minelab on one of the Black Hills Prospecting Club claims around Rapid City South Dakota. We did a little detecting and crevicing the shist. I stepped on a snake that looked just like a Coral Snake, we looked it up and it's called a Milk Snake- reddish orange, black, and white rings. Scary looking. Cheryl kept yelling at me while I was standing on a tailings pile. Ended up detecting 3 small gold nuggets. I was unsure if there was detective size gold in the Black Hills, so I am released to have found three. Having places to detect nuggets close to home is awesome. Will give plenty of practice till we get back to the desert. email questions to: [email protected] NOTE: We were prospecting on club or private claims which are not open to prospecting to the public. It is a Federal Offense to be searching for minerals on claimed land and you may be subject to fines or imprisonment. I will not comment as to the location of claims.
