A Visit With Patrick Donnelly, President of First Mining Finance


Knowing that many readers of TFMR are holders of First Mining Finance shares, we jumped at the opportunity to visit with Patrick Donnelly, the president of the company. This discussion covers many important topics and it also provides some valuable updates for shareholders.

Among the topics addressed during this call:

  • The latest drill results from FMF's "Spring Pole" and "Pickle Crow" projects: https://www.firstminingfinance.com/news-room
  • FMF's acquisition schedule for 2017
  • Whether higher or lower prices for precious metal impact FMF's growth plans
  • Patrick's personal forecast for precious and base metal prices in 2017.

Again, I think you'll find this 15-minute interview to be very valuable. The mining shares have begun 2017 in a manner similar to 2016 and we all need as much clear information as we can get for the months ahead.

O/T AlliedNevadaFraud here with an update!

Hey everyone! Jordan here!

Hello everyone!

This email is going out a little late due to technical difficulties with the company that services these updates but thankfully everything has been resolved and updates can now continue.

Where do I start? First things first. If your like me, you probably won't understand the importance of what I'm about to say "AT FIRST", but let it all sink in, and you might just see what I see.

The Opening Brief to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has just been filed along with declarations from the 3 members of the Equity Committee stating that they agree that a reversal of the POR will not negatively affect impaired parties.

Let me explain the significance of this.

The declarations of the 3 equity members
The Equity Committee consisted of a few people who's objective was to negotiate the best possible deal for shareholders and with the information that they had at the time, that is exactly what they did.

However, there existed a group of people that believed that the debtors were misrepresenting the facts and dealing with equity holders in bad faith. This group of people, from the time of the initial filing of the bankruptcy, even until now, has had to fight without having any assistance from the Equity Committee.

This, in my opinion, gave great weight on the previous judge's verdict, with herself thinking, how can there be any merit in what the Appellants are saying, when the Equity Committee, who is supposed to be in this for the best interest of ALL shareholders, are recommending that all equity holders should vote to accept the POR.

Well, now that the smoke is gone, and everyone can now see clearly as to the original intentions of the Debtors, the members who consisted of the Equity Committee have now filed declarations stating that they believe that a reversal of the POR will not negatively affect impaired classes (we are one of the impaired classes, the equity holders).

These three members are:

  • John Connor - who is currently serving as the warrant representative for the warrants that everyone was issued.
  • Ajay Maskar
  • Michael Richey

Throughout the confirmation hearing, Mr. Brian Tuttle has presented countless arguments to the court showing that shareholders are being taken advantage of. Now, this is of course my opinion, but the fact that these three members of the equity committee submitted declarations stating that they believe that reversing the POR will not negatively affect any impaired classes, to me this means that they are finally able to see that Mr. Brian Tuttle's hard work and efforts in fact may have merit.

These declarations are now going to be put in front of the judge at the Third Circuit. The judge will now be able to see this case in a completely different light than the previous judge saw since now the Equity Committee has filed these declarations.

Can anyone else see a bright ray of sunshine here, from this ridiculously thick tunnel of darkness we have been in for these past 2 years?

The Opening Brief
The Opening Brief that was just filed by Mr. Brian Tuttle is incredibly important so please give it a thorough read. It is 33 pages. If you have to, stop, take a break, and come back to it, so that you absorb everything.

Lastly, thanks again to everyone who donated. This money has been put to good use.
Part of those funds were used to provide Mr. Tuttle the ability to put together a professional package for the court. This submission of the opening breif and other related documents cost over 300 dollars for, printing, shipping and supplies.The Circuit Court required us to send 7 copies of briefs and 4 appendix. Total package: 5 binders, 7 folders, 12 tab sheets. He printed over 2500 pages at Office Max.
See photo of binder: view photo

As always, as soon as we have another update, we will keep you posted.

Until next time!

Evacuations ordered below Oroville Dam; failure of emergency spillway 'expected'

too much water at Oroville

real time video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF3j82YEsTo the next storm will make it very difficult.

Feb 13, 2017 - 2:05am

Oroville, It's Bushs' fault; really

"Three environmental groups — the Friends of the River, the Sierra Club and the South Yuba Citizens League — filed a motion with the federal government on Oct. 17, 2005, as part of Oroville Dam’s relicensing process, urging federal officials to require that the dam’s emergency spillway be armored with concrete, rather than remain as an earthen hillside.

The groups filed the motion with FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. They said that the dam, built and owned by the state of California, and finished in 1968, did not meet modern safety standards because in the event of extreme rain and flooding, fast-rising water would overwhelm the main concrete spillway, then flow down the emergency spillway, and that could cause heavy erosion that would create flooding for communities downstream, but also could cause a failure, known as “loss of crest control.”

“A loss of crest control could not only cause additional damage to project lands and facilities but also cause damages and threaten lives in the protected floodplain downstream,” the groups wrote.

The Bush administration rejected that request, however, after the state Department of Water Resources, and the water agencies that would likely have had to pay the bill for the upgrades, said they were unnecessary. Those agencies included the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which provides water to 19 million people in Los Angeles, San Diego and other areas, and the State Water Contractors, an association of 27 agencies that buy water from the state of California through the State Water Project."

Power of Deductive Reasoning.......

Boing earlier posted this video of equipment working on the bank of the Feather River opposite the crumbling main spillway structure. It has been announced that so much debris has built up in the river from the destruction of the concrete spillway that it has backed up and deepened the pool at the base of the dam where the hydroelectric turbines are located, causing them to be inoperable. Normally 12,000 cubic feet per second of water can be run through the turbines at the base of the dam.

One can surmise the apparent plan by viewing the equipment in this video. It is obvious that a path is being cleared. Why? Because after they get the water level down a little, they will shut in the dam totally for a few hours while the heavy equipment works to clear the channel. The ability to run an additional 12,000 cfs downstream through the turbines will help substantially given that both other methods of discharge are severely impaired for the foreseeable future.

This is an amazing drama for most of us and quite sad for those whose homes and livelihoods are at stake. I'm thinking the gold panning and metal detecting will be quite good now that the river bed has been roiled like this!

Trouble Conceiving Cubic Feet Per Second?

The Mississippi runs about 2 to 4 million CFS at flood stage at New Orleans.

The Colorado River runs about 135,000 CFS in a good high water year. Which hasn't been seen since 1984!

The Niagara River which drains all of the Great Lakes averages about 85,000 CFS.

I can't wait to see the daylight photos of 100,000 CFS coming 700 vertical feet down the destroyed spillway at Oroville Dam, should be spectacular if not cut back by morning!

This photo is evidently a mere 55,000 CFS.........

Lake level is below 900 again and dropping. So presumably they've managed to release enough water through the standard spillway to get the lake level back below the emergency spillway height (either that or there's a breech which has lowered the lake level - the drop seems a bit too controlled though for that - but then I'm not a Dam structural engineer).

There must still be immense pressure on the weakened standard spillway though - and with more rain forecast by midweek and into the weekend, they have limited time to make emergency repairs before things potentially escalate.

Hopefully though if the spillway hasn't completely failed then any loss of life will have been avoided.

Make America Great at the Grammys

Singer Joy Villa wears this dress at the Grammys last night. Album goes to number 1 on Amazon digital.

BTW, the dress was designed by an immigrant from the Phillipines.


The designer behind Joy Villa's pro-Trump, "Make America Great Again" Grammys gown, Filipino immigrant Andre Soriano, tells THR that he is supportive of the new president despite his controversial immigration ban, and that the message of the dress was one of positivity.

"It’s more so about love," he said of the red, white and blue gown. "We all live on this planet. I’ve never been in the political arena. However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump, or this and that, someone wants to bomb the White House. I am an American, I moved here from the Philippines, and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message."

This could be interesting

If everyone wants out of the Euro, should be interesting for PM's.

The first thing to happen in the case of a Le Pen victory is that money will flood out of all non-German members of the euro. Italy will face a massive bond crisis, presaging default fears. Greece will be gone. Spain and Portugal will experience similar bond crises, and so too will Ireland.
