Open the mines
March 13, 2014
Has anyone ever visited local libraries and local historical societies to find out about California's Gold Rush history and to locate all mining companies that closed down decades ago?
It would not hurt to relocate all the mines that have closed down decades ago — and up to the present — and reopen the mines that have been closed and boarded up, hire miners and geologists to look for gold and to explore for more gold-mining sites. A long time ago, the only thing coal miners had to work with were picks, shovels and gold-mining pans.
Keep in mind that California is flat broke and there are people moving to other states to find work. But has anyone ever thought about trying to save California instead of abandoning it?
We do not have to give up on California; there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel.
