Dear Jim Richards,

The California Supreme Court is reviewing the landmark win which was handed to small-scale gold miners by the Third Appellate Court in the case of California v. Rinehart. Now they have asked for briefing on how California’s new water quality law might affect the outcome. This very well may have opened the door to hear our argument that the new water quality law is nothing more than an extension of the State’s intent to prohibit mining on the public lands of California; something they do not have the authority to do. Our briefing on the matter was submitted to the California Supreme Court today. You are welcome to read it right here:

Here is a reminder that our ongoing legal fund-raiser will come to a close this next Friday, 26 February. The Legal Fund will be giving away three ounces of American Gold Eagles and 10 ounces of American Silver Eagles; 25 prizes in all. There has been very little participation in this drawing so far. We are sincerely hoping for you guys to provide some much needed support during this final week of the drawing. You can find more information right here:

Thank you guys very much for all you do to support our efforts!
