Oath Keepers Reveal Massive Corruption, Destruction of Property and Cover-Up By BLM Over Sugar Pine Mine

The evidence received by the Oath Keepers consists of:

  • Signed and notarized affidavits regarding missing or destroyed documentation within the BLM
  • Emails from BLM employees regarding the destruction and disposal of documents
  • Emails from BLM employees regarding the destruction of mines, equipment and structures
  • Emails regarding the use of foam by the BLM to close mines, forcing miners to dig through the obstruction to continue operations

The mine owner has submitted 14 FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests and has received only 3 responses. One man, however, walked into the Portland BLM office, verbally asked for the Sugar Pine Mine records on file and the BLM mailed them out the next day!

A FOIA request must be responded to within 20 days by law and most of the Sugar Pine mine requests date back to February.

The Oath Keepers have submitted the received evidence to the FBI.

Sugar Pine miners have had one of the longest running operations in the United States, having mined since the early 1870s. They have managed to produce 10 million ounces of gold since their conception and geologists estimate they have only removed 10% of the gold from the land, making it a highly sought after terrain.

The Oath Keepers have also received information on a lawsuit the BLM lost for not complying with FOIA requests over the Bundy Ranch incident.
