Shall I be be required to deposit silver just for the fun of mining it? A mine I own? Would "salting the mine" become excepted mining practice?
May as well go to Coloma Park out in the California Territory. They have a salted trough where the youngens can pan river sand looking for salted gold... Gold put in the trough for the cubs to find.
