What a horrid surprise was waiting for me when I arrived at the blue chip mine to do some simple gold prospecting.
Arrived at my Blue Chip Mine to do some more exploration of a new quartz seam. Brought in the micro blaster, jack hammers, quad and all the rest of the equipment. Unfortunately what I found waiting for me was an awful surprise. I found that squatters had taken up residence at my mine. but not only had they made themselves a camp, the made a HUGE junk pile out of the area.
I did not want to be blamed for the mass so I had to go to the cops and file a report so I would not be blamed for the garbage left all around my mine site. I did talk with the people, they were very friendly and nice. They said they would clean up and take their stuff with them. However I could not take the risk of being left responsible for the clean-up it they decided to abandon it all where it is.
