Doritos work great and are fun to watch burn also.  Isn't it great what the curiosity of youth can discover?

The boys and I have been making these.  Cotton pad soaked in melted wax.   They are waterproof and fit in a pack and can be lit by flame or spark.   They burn about 5-8 minutes which is enough to get even damp wood on the river burning when we are out fishing and need some lunch.

They fit great into a tobacco chew container for easy storage.

Investments in mining / Ximen Mining: Reset as an opportunity?
« Last post by Flo86xx on Yesterday at 01:40:25 PM »
Dear shareholders,

a fall in price is never pleasant but sometimes, as in this case, if it contains an interesting component!
The price was still $ 0.385 two days ago, yesterday's closing price $ 0.30, why?

On January 4, 2019, around 3.5 million options expire at a base price of $ 0.25, including settlement costs of
1.5 cents, the total cost is $ 0.265. Except these options, called by the way in the English Warrants, gives
No shares at this level, because we were not without reason already at 0.385 CAD.

This means in plain language, it offers here, for us shareholders, an incredible opportunity! The options, which expire on the 4th of January 2019, can and
we should try to buy 0.195 euros.

That's the equivalent of around $ 0.29, because stocks at these prices will be starting at
05. Jan 2019 no longer exist and there are only about 1.5 million shares available for this price

For me, a small, 1 pound propane bottle blow torch with a self lighter works well.   <-yahoo_> 

Damp wood lights well, it's fast and very easy to use, reliable and also is fully usable for other, more traditional uses like plumbing.

Also, it breaks down to two smaller component parts and it's not heavy or bulky at all  (If it is too heavy for some folks  then possibly staying at home might be a better option instead).

KISS, reliability and ease of use are all first rate in my book.   [-1st-]

I also throw a Bic Lighter in a Baggie and always carry it in a coat pocket for those OMG times.

I read of an Aussie showing up for one of the North America gold rushes, looked around a little, said "this looks just like" some area in Australia, went back to Australia, found gold riches and thus started a big rush in Australia.

Answer 1
The bulk of placer claim holders file Physical Work for assessment fees. In most cases only Technical Work reports go into the data base when they are out of confidential.
Answer 2
Reports of technical exploration and development requirements are listed in Section 16 of  the Mineral Tenure Act, Mineral Tenure Act Regulation and
subsection (6) Approved reports are confidential for a period of one year from the date of registration of the exploration and development.
Answer 3 (see Answer 1)
If geophysical is done on a placer claim it will be in ARIS but a physical work report would not.

"technical exploration and development" for mineral claims and placer claims includes:
(h) prospecting and exploring;
Exploration and development work on a claim
Section 7
(8) Prospecting activities in respect of a claim are acceptable for registration as exploration and development only during the first three years of the holding of the claim by a recorded holder.
So a Prospecting report (to be accepted)
Must meet the requirements of a technical report
and can only be filed in the first three years of ownership.
The wording would indicate that if one acquires a 10 year old claim they would have the three year period.
