The Bohmker Case
The Bohmker Case: Your Assistance is Needed
The PLP board of directors is asking your help in order to have the United States Supreme Court hear Bohmker (et al) vs Oregon.
Bohmker vs Oregon is spearheaded by the Waldo Mining District and the Galice Mining District and seeks to challenge Oregon’s prohibition on all motorized placer mining in streams designated as essential salmon habitat. On September 12, 2018 the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the miners. As a result of that ruling, the miners filed a petition for review in the United States Supreme Court on January 21, 2019.

Austrailian prospector finds $110K gold nugget
A massive gold nugget worth at least $110,000 has been uncovered by a prospector in remote Western Australia.
A retired man has found a massive gold nugget worth at least $110,000 while prospecting in a remote part of WA's northern Goldfields.
The retired man, who doesn't wish to be named to protect his identity, says he's been combing the same patch in the northern Goldfields with a metal detector for years, but struck it lucky with better technology.
"When I had finished digging it out, I just thought 'Oh my god'," he said of the find, a 3.23kg specimen containing 68 troy ounces or 2.11kg of gold.
"It was pretty deep at about 800mm in clay soil so it took more than two hours of careful digging to get it out."
