Jeff Kane: Reviving the Idaho-Maryland Mine - What a Deal!

Jeff Kane of Nevada City shares a hilarious conversation he "might have had" with someone he bumped into on the street


Let me tell you about the gold mine we’re planning here in Nevada County.

Yeah, tell me. After all, that’s our history. Are you gonna dip a pan into the South Yuba?

Well, it’s a little bigger than that. We’ll dig for it at the old Idaho-Maryland site.

Oh? How big a dig?

We’ll go underground and remove about 1,500 tons of rock.

Sounds like a lot.

Ahem. Ah, 1,500 tons every day.

Every day? Where will you put it?
