    Miners help fight the battle to defeat the suction dredge mining ban in California.

    Public Lands for the People is calling on miners to help fight the battle to defeat the suction dredge mining ban in California.
    “In order to compare the 1994 regulations with the new regulations on suction dredging, I need to know who has been harmed by the new regulations as far as dredging season changes, nozzle sizes, etcetera,” said PLP President Jerry Hobbs.
    “For example, [if] you have a mining claim and you used to be able to dredge for three or four months or all year round, and now you can only dredge for 30 days or maybe not at all or if you own a mining claim on a river or stream that is closed all year round now, but wasn't closed under the old regulations, we need to know,” he said.

    Hobbs is also asking miners to email others in the prospecting and mining community to get the word out quickly.
    “Please send this action alert out to your email list and tell your friends to contact me about it. This information we need as soon as possible and plenty of of it,” he said. “This is important.”
    Hobbs pointed out that time is of the essence, so email is the best way to get information to him while the 15-day comment period is still open.
    Miners are asked to download the Effects of Proposed New Dredge Regulations Form, fill out the form, and email it to jerhobbs2@verizon.net.
    You will be asked the following information:

    Mining claim owners,
    • Full name
    • Address
    • Phone number
    • Email (if available)
    • Name of stream or river
    For more information or to submit your concerns about the proposed California Department of Fish and Game suction dredge mining regulations, email PLP president Jerry Hobbs at jerhobbs2@verizon.net or call Public Lands for the People at (909) 889-3039.

    Since we got rid of Judge Roesch, it appears that our hearing on SB 670 and AB 120 is still going to happen on the 31srt of May in San Bernardino in front of Judge Alverez. Please pass this news on.

    San Bernardino Court Hearing Update 8/3/12

    San Bernardino Court Hearing Update

    First of all PLP would like to thank all of you that came to the hearing and thanks to those that were there in spirit . We had 53 people (miners) and they were quite an impressive crowd. The State Attorney, PLP Attorney David Young and James Buchal all addressed the fact that the people in the audience were the reason that the 6 cases should be heard in San Bernardino, that there were thousands of miners in San Bernardino and not any in Alameda County. They also argued that the 6 cases that were now before the courts were complex cases and needed to be consolidated before one Judge and they prefered them to be heard in San Bernardino.

    The judge stated that he had particpated in complex cases before and fully understood the process. He stated that he would have a written decision this month and possibly with in 2 weeks. Judge Alverez's decision at that time goes to the Judicial Council and they will determine whether they implement with his recomendation. The Judicial Council would normally go with the Coordinating Judges opinion and usually do. Our attorneys did a fine job argueing the case and seemed to overwhelm the Karuk attorney.

    About all the (Karuk etal) attorney could do is whine that they could not afford the trip down here and would probably have to get another attorney to take her place. At any rate we are getting closer to trial.

    We also had visiting attorney in the audience who took extensive notes. I ask him if he felt that things went well and he agreed that he thought they had gone well. All we can do now is to wait for the judges decision before we move forward. Keep up the Faith.
