Weekly Update From ECPN Board Chairman Doug Sanders
Wednesday, November 17, 2021
I am pleased to report that we are well on our way to reaching our goal in collecting funds to renew the 100+ El Capitan land claims with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Lincoln County, and I send my thanks to the many shareholders who have stepped up to help the Company with this important project. Plans are already underway to begin the physical staking that must be done for each of the 100+ claims.
If you are craving some time outdoors and hiking in the beautiful New Mexico National Forest… you might consider volunteering to help with this project. I have hired the guy who has staked our claims in the past — literally “staked” them, as the process will involve locating all corners via GPS coordinates and physically staking each corner of each claim and attaching an information sheet to the stake… just like the settlers did in the old West (remember the Oklahoma Land Rush, which started on April 22, 1889)— and he will oversee this two- to three-week project and direct the volunteers. If you have the time and if fresh air and exercise sounds good to you, we could really use some volunteers for all or part of the staking process. We expect that the work will begin in late November at the earliest.
We’re still accepting funds on the last of the claim renewals… at $250 each. “Get ‘em,” as they say, “while they last!” — and have a stake (pun intended) in El Capitan’s success story.
As in the past, all documentation and information on each claim will be delivered to the BLM and recorded, all in preparation for the future, and our ability to negotiate from the strongest position possible with buyers or potential partners…
If you have an interest in volunteering, please contact me personally at [email protected]
More next week…
