Potential BLM Fight Brewing In Southern Oregon

Oregon BLM

This article comes from the Shasta Lantern.

by Red Smith

Investigating information received last night the Shasta Lantern has been following a potential standoff building between BLM and a group of miners located near Grants Pass, Oregon. The property in question, the Sugar Pine Mining Claim, has existed as a rightful claim since 1876 and is one of the oldest claims in the country. Reportedly late this week, BLM officials accompanied by deputies of Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel issued a Cease and Desist order to the mine and it’s owners. The order has given the miners until April 25th to remove all equipment, buildings and supplies from the mine. It has been reported local BLM officials have threatened to burn the buildings down if they are not removed by the date.

Since roughly 2012 the miners from the Galice Mining District, which Sugar Pine Mine is a part of, have been arguing with BLM for their rights to underground mineral deposits in and around Galice Creek, OR.  The Galice Mining District is a private consortium of claims, owners and miners that has continuously operated since the early 1870’s. This means the mining district actually predates the BLM by decades. The mining district has produced in excess of 10 million ounces of gold since its inception, and geologists estimate that only 10% of the gold in the ground has been removed.

On March 18th, 2015 BLM issued two Stop Orders on the mining district, citing authority under BLM Surface Management 3809 regulations. Once the miners signaled their intent to fight in court what they believe to be an illegal order and retained attorney James Dole (who has successfully defeated BLM in court on numerous mining issues) the current Cease and Desist order was served on the Sugar Pine Mine even though the issue is scheduled to be heard in court later in the year .

  1. Every where the BLM goes, there is abuse of power. They’ve forgotten who they work for. BLM must be confronted at every turn. When you’re stuck, and cannot come to our brother Oath Keepers aide, we must assist in every way possible, “bucks” is what comes to mind at the moment, legal aide, gas money, “beer” money, whatever money, so let’s do it. In Liberty. Milt/sarge

  2. The BLM is a *terrorist organization being used against Americans to steal their land, state’s land, etc; against the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it to destroy it – together making it **TREASONOUS activity on the part of all serving within the BLM, and those who SERVE within our governments that order these actions.

    *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.


    Understand that under the SEPARATION OF POWERS that is inbuilt within our Constitutional Republic that the ONLY thing the BLM can do LAWFULLY here in the USA is to enforce the laws/regulations/etc that those that were elected to the Legislative branch create (themselves, as they are NOT allowed to assign their duties to others – but can have assistance).

    The BLM is forbidden to create any policies, regulations, laws that they might use against the American people. They can create policies, regulations, laws to be used in Washington DC, on (real, not stolen) federal land such as military bases, naval yards, etc.

    The BLM cannot decide the guilt or innocence of any party, that is REQUIRED to be done in a court of law, by JURY TRIAL.

    When enforcing policies, regulations, laws that are in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution, it MUST be done in a constitutional manner. Since the US Constitution did not provide and authorize for the BLM or any other agency like it they have no LAWFUL standing in America except when they have taken and KEEP the Oath to support and defend the US Constitution.

    If they have NOT kept that Oath it is also a felony (at least one), and the crime of Perjury. If they have not taken the Oath as LAWFULLY REQUIRED by all who serve within our governments then they have NO LAWFUL/LEGAL standing anywhere within the USA. They are then criminals impersonating Officers/Agents of the federal government under the executive branch. If ordered to do so without the REQUIRED taking of the Oath those that ordered it from within our government are TRAITORS to the USA and the American people. They must be charged with such and held for prosecution whatever position they may currently occupy within our government.

    Any judge who supports those unlawful actions instead of taking and keeping the lawfully required Oath must be charged with “Misbehavior”, not using “Good Behaviour”, Treason, if any are injured or force is used in any manner by the BLM, even if just to intimidate, then they would also be charged with the crime of Terrorism.

    Molon Labe!
    Stay Safe All!

    God Bless!

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

  3. Because this issue has been linked to the anti-Constitutional activity at the Bundy Ranch and Gold Butte in Nevada, it is important to remember that Harry Reid’s former top assistant on lands issues, Neil Kornze, was put in as the acting head of the BLM before the troubles started down there.
    Though they have undoubtedly reviewed and revised some of their operationis, I would assume the tactics and the arguments the BLM will use in Oregon will be similar in nature to their last invasion in Nevada.
