From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
31st President of the United States
Herbert Clark Hoover (August 10, 1874 – October 20, 1964) was the 31st President of the United States (1929–33). He was a professional mining engineer and was raised as a Quaker. A Republican, Hoover served as head of the U.S. Food Administration during World War I, and became internationally known for humanitarian relief efforts in wartime Belgium.
As the United States Secretary of Commerce in the 1920s under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge, he promoted partnerships between government and business under the rubric "economic modernization". In the presidential election of 1928, Hoover easily won the Republican nomination, despite having no elected-office experience. Hoover is the most recent cabinet secretary to be elected President of the United States, as well as one of only two Presidents (along with William Howard Taft) elected without electoral experience or high military rank.
Hoover, a globally experienced engineer, believed strongly in the Efficiency Movement, which held that the government and the economy were riddled with inefficiency and waste, and could be improved by experts who could identify the problems and solve them. He also believed in the importance of volunteerism and of the role of individuals in society and the economy. Hoover, who had made a small fortune in mining, was the first of two Presidents to redistribute his salary (President Kennedy was the other; he donated all his paychecks to charity).
President Hoover, as a mining engineer surveyed, sampled and mined the same areas on which the FHMC placer operations exist. His major published work for this area is; 1897 Geology of the Timberlake Fourmile placer mining district, Colorado. Engineering and Mining Journal, 63:510.
Below is a National Mineral Resources Map
This map displays known resource deposits in the Four-Mile Timber Lake Creek Mining District, and Housel Gulch areas. Place your mouse cursor over any red flag and it will note the mining claim. On the right when you place your cursor over the noted mineral, the red flags will highlight where that mineral is located.
Look for the Joker Pit, center right side. To the South and North of the Joker Pit is the placer trend that our operations will mine. Further North to the Law Dredge and Gooldy Placer. this region has significate HREE, Gold, Thorium, and other economically viable minerals.
Below are aerial photographs of two of the areas that FHMC plans to implement mining operations summer 2016.
