Pat, ripped me off too. If his lips are moving he is lying. DO NOT INVEST IN HIS MINING SCAM !!!!!! I found out the hard way $50,000 gone he wont return my calls his office is abandon. There is no mine, there is no gold, he does know anything about mining. What he does know, is how to lie and rip off investors. He owes the BLM $225,000 for the damage done to someone’s claim, and he was fined $93,890 by MSHA for health and safety violations. This can be found on the Gov. MSHA website mine ID# 2602708 he has not paid any of this. He ripped off equipment rental dealers too check what United Rental of LV has to say about him he owes $55,000 for equipment he used and didn’t pay for. The rental place he ripped off in Elko went out of buisness because of him. And then there is the Caterpillar dealer in Ely he owes them $22,000 call and ask for Scott he will tell you all about this low life piece of shit. The BLM has pull their mining permit and will never permit Pat to mine again in the state of Nevada. This is just the tip of the iceburg. If you meet Pat don’t walk but run as fast as you can and keep hold of you wallet. *** Note to Pat*** you better hide real good cause there are alot of really pissed off people looking for you!!!
