All of us here at the Sugar Pine Mine would like to say an enormous THANK YOU! to all the guys and gals from the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Office, the Oregon Department of Forestry, the U.S. Forest Service, and the National Guard, for the incredible job they did protecting all the mines and homes in the Galice Mining District.

They even wrapped our cabin, mill building, and our infamous Stamp Mill in fire-proof Mylar sheeting to protect it from the fire!

The Taylor Creek Fire came very close to our mine infrastructure - it actually burned into the southern end of the Sugar Pine Group. Fortunately, due to the hard work and diligence of ODF and the State Fire Marshal, none of our structures were destroyed.

Thank you so much for all that you have done - you guys rock!  

Stay safe our there, and God bless and keep all of you.
