East Esmeralda Landowner's Association Citizens of Goldfield Townsite and sympathizers are joining forces to clean up the title mess in Goldfield and Goldpoint. Many of the folks are living on land with mineral rights belonging to others. The concern is that the holder of the patent mining rights can dig under residence and turn Goldfield into another Round Mountain. Of course, as you know, the entire town of Round Mountain was physically moved and the place is now destroyed. The people were given Hadley as their new town. Is that what you want? East Esmeralda Landowner's Association is a grass roots organiza- tion to protect our property d ghts. We are conducting a title search at this point. We may try to settle with the owners of the patented claims, Alpha, Overland and Columbus. If that fails, we will consider a quiet title action to the landowner's portion of the surface. If interested, you are invited to join us by calling James M. Stuart, Attorney at Law, at (702) 485-6352. Harmon receives grant from Beatty Sandy Harmon, executive director of EDEN (Economic Develop- ment Authority Esmeralda Nye) received plenty of support when he approached the Beatty Town Board at their monthly meeting on Septemhea- 9. Beatty's inco me will drop in the near future with the eventual closing of the Bullfrog Mine. Commissioner Bob Revert said that with the price of gold falling, no one is out exploring for more mines. He used the boarded up houses and businesses in Tonopab as an example of what happens with mine closings tounderscore the community's need to find another economic base. Most of Harmon's presentation focused on the proposed Nevada Science and Technology Corridor, and Kistler Aerospace's program to launch satellites from the Nevada Test Site, which he said was a "done deal." "A year from now, 30 miles from here, the company plans to launch 30 satellites a year and this is our big chance, and it may be our last chance." he said. The agency is also planning the idea of establishing an industrial park on land near the Beatty airport. It could he a possible location for a satellite assembly plant. Responding'to Skinny Forsyth's reservations by the preceding agency's embezzlement problems, Harmon explained the organiza- tional safeguards he had implemented since taking over. After hoard chairwoman Joannie Revert's plea that, "whatever we invest here today is an investment in ourselves," the hoard voted to grant EDEN $7,000 to help meet their matching funds requirement. It was determined that the money would come from the fund that formerly went to the clinic.
