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.
