Supreme Court rejects Rinehart case

Supreme Court rejects Rinehart case

Updated 1/10/18

 

A recent Supreme Court of the United States decision to reject the Brandon Rinehart case has left California gold miners reeling.

The top court’s refusal to hear the case on Jan. 8 prompted a same-day response from the Gold Prospectors Association of America, a national membership-organization representing tens of thousands of small-scale gold miners.

ACTION ALERT: Miners call on Trump for day in court

ACTION ALERT: Miners call on Trump for day in court

Land rights groups push for SCOTUS to hear Rinehart case

Gold miners are calling President Donald Trump’s attention to California’s statewide ban on suction dredge mining over recent developments in a high-profile court case.

The case involves Brandon Rinehart, a California gold miner who was cited in 2012 for suction dredging without a permit on his own mining claim. Though the state required that Rinehart obtain a state permit, it refused to issue permits. Outraged over this Catch-22 situation, the small-scale mining community has backed Rinehart in his five-year legal battle.

Stuart Auerbach (1932 - 2017)

Stuart Auerbach (1932 - 2017)

Founder of Kellyco started metal detecting for coins at Iwo Jima during the Korean Conflict

“I can remember when I was nine or 10 years old. I was raised in New York City, and every summer we used to go out to places like Rockaway Beach and Jones Beach. I remember vividly in one of the areas there was a boardwalk. I never paid attention to it until one day I saw a man under the boardwalk with something and I was curious enough to go look and ask, ‘What are you doing, Mister?’ And, he said, ‘I’m sifting for money.’ You know, as a kid when I heard the word “money,” I started asking how you are doing it. He had a box and a sifter and he kept throwing stuff in it and by golly he found some coins and it knocked me for a loop. It intrigued me, and that’s why I read books about treasure and adventure,” said Auerbach. “I think I’m the persona of what the American dream is all about.”

Getting Back To The Buzzard’s Outing Playbook

Participants get so much more than just gold at events

Yes! You will get gold! All the participants share a split of the gold that is recovered in the outing common operation. Want more? There is usually a little picker or vial with some fines (small pieces of gold) that you walk away with as well. Many participants like to label their vials so they can remember all the fun they had for years to come.

GPAA Tech – Ten Years in the Making

GPAA Tech – Ten Years in the Making

Giving local attention to a national membership base

My first day working for the GPAA was a very exciting day in my life. I had grown up around this organization from the age of about 9, and looked up to those who were involved at the time like they were generals leading an army of prospectors. People like my grandfather George “Buzzard” Massie, Tom and Perry Massie, my grandmother Wilma Massie, Corey Rudolph, Jake and Lynn Hardwick, Woody Caldwell and others. They were always so busy during the outings, but I do remember that, at the end of the day, they always had a smile on their face. It was very exciting to think that, one day, I would be part of the team. What kid doesn’t get excited at the idea of playing in the dirt with friends as a profession?
