Exactly why I increased my mining shares in American mining companies. Dig baby dig. Now we just need to drill baby drill. I can think some Ranch Land SLO county would be a good place to start.

I tend to research companies and what they do before I invest, apparently there is someone who doesn't. Sad.... If I were going to invest in a mining company I would first find out what minerals they seek, and if they were going to mine in SLO County I would sell my stock.

Cinnabarite is the only merchantable mineral ever take out of SLO County, and all those mines closed years ago, aside from small quantities of oil.

I know that this may be new information for city dwellers, but, most ranchers own the mineral rights under their land, particularly true for the old families.

Good, you need to refine that a bit, there is a thin line between sarcasm and looking like Alfred E Newman.

Good to see your doing some introspection.
