mining brings to your everyday life.
BREAKING NEWS: Preparatory to judicial proceedings which might be taken by Jefferson Mining District or, independently or in conjunction, by grantees, were the State of Oregon to pull back the hammer of the gun it points at the heads of private property possessors or real producers, and to lay the foundation for remedy, Jefferson Mining District has served upon the State of Oregon Legislature, and others aiding and abetting, a
Notice and Demand to Cease and Desist.
Miners & Other Property Owners:
See guide for the very particular HOOPS the legislature wants you to jump through.
To any wrongful Bill all you need to do is write an email sent to the staff of the committee the bill is scheduled before that says:
the opinion of JMD, the "mining rights"
legislation proposed to date are no good. These
are merely bones thrown to subdue miners out of
their voice and opposition. Do not be suckered
into believing anyone today knows mining law
better than Congress in 1865 to 1872. The
so-called Miner's Right to Work bill is a FAIL;
We're not mere workers, We're grantees in
possession. Any mining rights bill suggestion
this session, such as the bill to guarantee
consultation appears to be a FAIL.

JMD OPPOSITION Comment
BREAKING NEWS: Legislative Committee ordered DOGAMI meeting to address discrepancies with HB 2248 and independent miners upon JMD Comment. March 7, 2012, hearing exposed Opposition to the Bill where DOGAMI had declared there was none and Representative Whitsett identified inconsistencies in DOGAMI's statements.

congressionally granted property rights are promoting a
bill to prohibit placer mining to study for harm they
know existing science proves does not occur from mining.
The bill will be a waste of state resources and taxpayer
money. A moratorium on placer mining is a prohibition of
the right to work your granted mineral estate as the
grantee determines is the most economical extraction
constituting an unlawful takings. SB 838 violates the
Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution as

Oregon statute, ORS

independent felony acts. Send the message that you will
not tolerate such a subversion of the law and acts that
can be seen to be constituting a constitutional crisis.
Do not expect help from the office of the Attorney
General. Recent experience with the systemic corruption
that passes itself off as lawful legislative government
shows commenting will not do anything.You will
have to testify AND persist in contacting every

civil rights violations under color of authority.
