FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 15, 2013
This is to announce that 471 placer mining claims covering approximately 9300 acres, named collectively the Option Antero and the Aqua-Mermaid claims, have been recorded at the Chaffee County Courthouse.
Due to wide exposure of The Weather Channel’s reality show “Prospectors”, thrill-seekers, gem-rushers, the greedy and the selfish from around the world are expected to travel to Mounts Antero and White this year. By acquiring these claims, there is now no reason for continuation or expansion of the reckless behaviour and violent acts revealed by the producers of this show.
Now, all further prospecting is closed in the Mount Antero and Mount White region shown on the attached map.
All existing lode mining claims, and existing mill sites dependent upon them, within the border shown on the map will be challenged to prove they have actually discovered lodes or filed timely all necessary documents as defined by state and federal laws.
Now, a single answer can be given by elected officials, local law enforcement, BLM authorities, Forest Service officials, mountain and river guides, community groups, news organizations, environmental groups, outfitters, rock shops, jewelers, mineral societies, and all others, if asked about prospecting on Mount Antero and Mount White, and that is:
“THE ENTIRE REGION HAS BEEN CLAIMED.”
Antero Mining Options wishes to also announce plans to consider eventual transfer of its mining claims to a future “Gemstone National Park”. All interested parties wishing to be partners in preserving this unique national treasure and protecting the source of Aquamarine, the Colorado State Gemstone, should contact me for formulation of a 1000 year plan for the region.
