Here we GO! Access to our “RED” amethyst mine!

HERE we would greatly welcome some  timely support AS IN CO-SPONSORSHIP funding of a little trail-work to initiate substantial production. We might be able to have this contracted & done in just a week! We do have specimens & gems to sell or trade immediately! Our mining neighbor stopped in to offer on-the-ground help. We seek a way to pay him.

30+ yrs war on rules; Victory at hand for NH amethyst strike, at last!

We are leasing our strategic patented {NHES041929} amethyst mine* on North Moat Mtn. North Conway, NH to a well-respected amethyst miner. *[aka The “Ravine”, “Boulders” and Pete Samuelson’s “Moose Pocket” locations].

We are offering a guide service opportunity to a local (NH) member of the Saco Valley or Southeast NH Mineral clubs to help guide my commercial miners to the locality, for a fee or participation dig share.  Likely in JUNE.


Patagonia Mining Boom growing!

We were not too surprised to see more progress at the many minesites we pass on our way to the Duquesne – Washington Camp area, but the sight of mid-road drilling, and surveyor-prospectors staking new claims ( some abutting one of ours) and the appearance of several new companies driving Harshaw Road, confirm our earlier conjecture that the regulatory and security atmosphere changes were about to have an effect (along with economic factors) which would be beneficial to our niche mining biz.

Along with NG & military on the border [already, advance forces have deployed, much to our relief, right on our property!] the safety and peacefulness of our mining is assured, at long last. {Not that we had not already employed adequate preparations.}

So with a lifting of the unreasonable restraints previously & wrongly imposed upon us by corrupt Forest Service in their now well-known over-reaches, we are applying normal, conventional methods and machinery to exploit our phenomenally richly minerallized deposits.

ACCORDINGLY we are re-issuing our recruitment for pro specimen extractors and others involved in mine operations focused on quality production rather than quantity sales. Residing here is a MUST, at least for the season. Please email me
