Anvil Creek Mine/Innoko Mining District, Alaska

Permits & Filings:
All permits are current
EPA General Permit AKG-37-0000 with a mixing zone and modified turbidity limit State of Alaska Annual Placer License

All claims have been recorded and filed properly each year with Affidavits of Annual Labor on both state and federal claims and filings with both state and federal agencies.

There are no lawsuits or environmental claims against this property or us.

Annual Claim Fees:
There are 10 federal claims, which allow us to file for a small miner waiver. We dont have to pay the annual $200/claim fee since we qualify for this waiver. The fee for filing the federal Affidavit of Annual Labor on the 10 claims is $100.

There are 11 state claims. 5 of these claims have an annual rental fee of $130/claim. The other 6 are on state-selected land, which has received tentative approval to be conveyed from federal land to state land, but since it hasnt been conveyed yet there is no annual rental fee on it. The fee for filing the state Affidavit of Annual Labor is $56.

There is an annual state water rights fee of $50.

There is also a bond pool fee, which varies from year to year depending on your mining activity. The fee is $37.50/acre for ground that has not been reclaimed and $150/acre for new ground to be disturbed that year. A credit or refund of $112.50 is received for each acre that is reclaimed.

There is no property tax in this area.

Gold Recovery:
The paystreak that runs up the bottom of the creek channel is an average of 75 wide. The paydirt starts about 2 above bedrock so we run this plus about another foot of the bedrock through the sluice box. We have averaged between 3/4 ounces and 1 ounces of gold for each lineal foot we have mined up this paystreak. It has a fineness between 85% and 89%. There is approximately 1/3rd of the gold recovered that is 1/8th of an inch or bigger. The biggest nugget we have found on the creek was 5 ounces. The gold on the creek is great for making jewelry, which of course brings a much higher price.

We estimate that there is approximately 7,000 lineal feet of creek channel left to mine. If the values continue to hold with the averages we have had that translates into 5,250 to 8,750 ounces.

We have also mined east and west of camp on the benches and have recovered gold. The claims that run closest to the Innoko River are part of an area called the Innoko Flats. We have approximately 2,500 of Innoko River frontage, which are claims that are part of these Innoko Flats. Innoko Flat claims, belonging to another party, run from our claims to the east of us for a couple of miles. These claims have been drilled and the drill records show good values. There are also Innoko Flat claims a couple miles downstream from us that have been drilled, again showing good values. We have not drilled any of our claims, but with the history of the area, the mining conducted on the nearby creeks, and the results of these drill records, as well as our own mining experience on Anvil Creek, we feel confident that there is still a healthy gold reserve on our claim.
