Update:  3 March 2019

Virginia Mining Company of Honduras, is no longer. 
After extensive violence and threats, we have abandoned the
project and walked away.  We left all of the equipment,
lab equipment, and personal property behind us.  Including
a 100 ton a day Leach Mill.

Twenty-five (25) years and much effort were destroyed by
the gangs.  An incredible loss, not only in investment,
but people.  We were forced to dismiss our crew.  Fortunately,
everyone got out alive.  The roads had been blocked by the
gangs for many weeks.

Yes, I lost my investment and all of the equipment at the mill site.
It will take years to recover, if ever.
I am still tender about this loss.  Good paying jobs were
lost in the process. 

Please pray for the safety of crews, workers, and citizens of Honduras. 
They need our prayers.

The gangs were not from Honduras.  They are now headed for the
Southern Border of the US. Please pray for the US; without a border wall, we are next for violence.

This is approximately February 2000, two years after Hurricane Mitch.

This operation is not related to Minera Virginia, just an interesting photograph. Placer
Mining at the minimum.  Water is probably cold.  This stream comes out
of the mountains.
