2015-2016 Board Elections

WEPC will be taking nominations for new Officers and Board Members at the General Meeting. WEPC is a corporation, and by law, WEPC must have elected Officers and Board Members to operate. Without them, WEPC will cease to exist. Officer positions are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. There are also 9 Board Member positions to fill. Members must have one year of membership to qualify for the above positions. Members must make nominations for these positions. The members who are nominated must be available to accept or decline the nomination. The election will be held at the June General Meeting. WEPC needs volunteers for committee positions. Any member, regardless of membership time, can volunteer for the committees. Please log in with your member account to view the current nominees.

Current nominees can be found in the members' forum at the following link


Claim maps

I'm in the process of formatting the TOPO's and data for the claim maps. I'm making them fully interactive, so check out the claim sections. Buckshot is started but I have some more changes to do. After they are done I'll put together a tutorial to use them.

If you have any suggestions to improve the maps let me know.

I will be adding a highlighted road layer to the overlays for each claim, so don't suggest this.

California gold miners score another win over state

Capitol alert, Dan Walters, 1/14/2015

California’s 21st century gold miners have scored a second major victory over state efforts to restrict – or ban – them from searching for the precious metal in rivers and streams on federally owned land, such as national forests.

On Monday, San Bernardino County Judge Gilbert Ochoa, building on a previous decision by a state appellate court, declared that the state’s moratorium on using suction dredges to sift through gravel had become a de facto ban and thus violated federal mining law, which encourages mining on federal lands.
