Day One: Secretary Zinke Signs Orders to Expand Access to Public Lands


Orders Strengthen America’s Outdoor Heritage & Restore Opportunities for Sportsmen and Anglers

WASHINGTON - Today, on his first day on duty, Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (pronounced ZINK-ee) issued two secretarial orders which expand access to public lands and increase hunting, fishing, and recreation opportunities nationwide. These orders deliver on promises made by both President Donald J. Trump and Secretary Zinke to expand access to America’s public lands. The action was hailed by representatives from sportsmen, conservation, and recreation organizations. 

"Outdoor recreation is about both our heritage and our economy. Between hunting, fishing, motorized recreation, camping and more, the industry generates thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity,” said Zinke. “Over the past eight years however, hunting, and recreation enthusiasts have seen trails closed and dramatic decreases in access to public lands across the board. It worries me to think about hunting and fishing becoming activities for the land-owning elite. This package of secretarial orders will expand access for outdoor enthusiasts and also make sure the community's voice is heard." 

The two secretarial orders include:

Secretarial Order No. 3346 overturns the recent ban of lead ammunition and fish tackle used on Fish and Wildlife Service lands, waters, and facilities. The order highlights the need for additional review and consultation with local stakeholders.

Calling all miners, 

AMRA will be holding their first Southern California outing January 21, 22, 2017 at Slash X Cafe in Barstow.   This is a chance for all us Southern California Miners to get together and get to know each other, and find some gold at the same time.  So please invite the members of your club or anyone whom might be interested in a fun and dirty weekend in the desert.

Route 66 Gold Miners will open up their 320 acres of claims for dry washing, recirculating systems (bring your own water) and metal detecting on Saturday and Sunday. 

Slash X Cafe has offered their property for free camping to us miners from Friday-Sunday. There is a cafe and bar available and they are willing to stay open beyond business hours for us.  

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner so please support them as they are supporting us. We will be holding an event giveaway at 4 pm on Saturday, and tickets will be available for purchase starting Friday night along with AMRA gear. You must check in with us at AMRA’s booth. 

Slash X Ranch is located in Stoddard Valley 8 miles south of Barstow on HWY 247.

I know this is short notice but the outing  and location were confirmed this last weekend.  

If you have any questions please reply back and I will do my best to answer questions.

Thank you for your support,
Michael Ratanasurakarn

Eagle Mountain Land Grab!!!!!

Completely ignoring the fact that the Eagle Mountain Mining District (which the FCM has a claim in) is a federally and judicially recognized entity under the Mining Laws, the BLM and Secretary of the Interior proposes to withdraw approximately 22, 462 acers of public land (which includes the Eagle Mountain Mining District) and turn it over to Joshua Tree National Park beginning with a segregation of said lands for 2 years with a notification in the Federal Register on the 18th of November of this year. A public comment period is now open and ends on the 16th of February. A public meeting on the proposed withdrawal will be held on January 18th 2017 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at UC Riverside Palm Desert, 75080 Frank Sinatra Drive, Palm Desert California 92211.

My fellow Miners, Metal Detectorist, Off Roaders, Hunters and all Outdoors People, this is just one more landgrab initiated by environmentalist and supported by the BLM in behalf of the National Park System. There is only one reason for this landgrab and that is to shut you out and take away your rights.

In the “Eagle Mountain Boundary Study Including Possible Land Withdrawal Environmental Assessment” that was published in March of 2016 by the National Park System, says the withdrawal is needed for the protection of cultural and biological resources. This is crap ladies and gentlemen; the area is so remote only the claim holders (who have held claims in the area for nearly 20 years) and very few people venture into the area. Yet the NPS states in the same study, they want to enhance tourism in the area. Is that not an oxymoron? Protection and tourism?

I am requesting each one of you sit down and write a letter of objection to this landgrab. You can go to the following website and make comments:
