Corey Shuman

President and Founder Since the late 1990s Corey has been actively working to preserve historic mining sites that were scheduled to be bulldozed. Then it occurred to Corey that the best way to preserve these old mines was to claim them. In 2008 Corey started staking claims on historic mines. It wasn't long after that friends were asking what he was going to do with the claims and offering to buy them. This soon evolved into a full-time job for Corey.

Mention the name Corey Shuman to most people and chances are nothing comes to mind. Mention his company - Gold Rush Expeditions - and it might conjure up thoughts of tours to old mining towns, and that wouldn't be too far off. Corey, the owner of Gold Rush Expeditions, has been traveling out to old mines for the past decade, claiming them and then turning around and selling them at a rate of about two per week or a hundred each year. This has created no small stir among small scale miners. It's a breath of fresh air in a world where mining has become a dirty word. Gold Rush Expeditions has managed to amass a loyal Facebook following of over 43,000, a sign that small scale mining in the U.S. is not dead.

Jump back 20 years and Corey would have laughed at the idea of selling mines. Back then Corey was mostly interested in exploring old mining sites, but soon fell in love with the history.
...
20 years ago Corey was content to just visit these old mining sites to take in and appreciate the history, but as Corey began to see an increasing number of Abandoned Mine Reclamation Programs start their work, he became concerned. "Entire mine sites including mills, ore bins, trusses, cabins, and the mines would be completely erased from the landscape, never to be seen again. It was alarming. One week they would be there, the next week there would be an empty bulldozed piece of land. remarked Corey.
Corey decided he needed to do something to preserve some of these old historic mines. He originally tried working with state federal organizations, but it was an uphill battle that Corey wasn't going to win.
...
Corey says that this destruction of these historic landmarks is alarming. "We are actively destroying our heritage.
...
Corey has been exploring historic mines throughout the West for the better part of three decades, and has explored thousands of old mines without incident. "Mines can be dangerous, no doubt, but so can skiing or mountain biking, or kayaking, or a host of other activities that are encouraged on public lands. says Corey. He continues, "Mine hazards can be all but eliminated by bringing the right gear and playing it safe. There are a few mines that I come across that I wouldn't feel safe entering, but by in large the vast majority of these old abandoned mines are safe."
Blackfoot So how did trying to save historic mines from demolition launch Corey into the business of selling old mines? "It was rather by accident", relates Corey.
...
The mines sold quickly on Ebay and that's when Corey knew he was onto something. For the next few years he continued to document and sell historic mines in his spare time. By 2011, after a few years of continual success, Corey decided it was time to take a leap of faith and quit his job and start selling claims full time.
...
says Corey.
...
Having documented thousands of mines over the past few decades has led Corey to a different conclusion. "Most of these mines were abandoned between the 1910's and the 1940's. A look back at history shows us why."
Corey explains that in 1917 the U.S. entered WWI, and more than 4 million men answered the call of duty.
...
said Corey. Order L-208 and WWII essentially smothered small scale mining. Some small scale miners continued their work, but it was never resumed on the large scale as before the war. Many mines were just forgotten.
According to Corey, the gold is still out there, waiting to be mined. "It's not uncommon for us to find exposed ore veins running throughout these mines, and to see drill holes at the end of the tunnel, with a muck plate in place ready to blast another few feet. Some mines are worked out, but many of them still have gold reserves that were left from the mid 1900's."
Corey continues, "Today the opportunity is ripe. The tools to process the ore from these mines are better and cheaper than in the past, and if I can play a small part in helping Americans to remember and appreciate their past and at the same time provide an opportunity for many to work the rock and provide a good living for themselves, then I'm content."
And while each year more and more mines are erased from our landscape, Corey is out driving the back roads of the West claiming old mines in an attempt to preserve some of our history. As quickly as Corey can find and claim good mines, there is always someone on the other end eager to purchase and start working them, proving that the small scale miner isn't dead.


The Special Investigator for the AG ...

The Special Investigator for the AG Office is responsible for investigating alleged criminal violations involving state and federal laws, rules, and regulations, but Corey Shuman, founder of GRE, Inc. says that Ronald Barton's investigation and harassment of GRE, Inc. customers has been taken too far and without merit.

...
Mr. Shuman stated, "It is one thing to investigate a complaint.
...
GRE President Corey Shuman explains that in early 2012 he received a call from one of his clients, out of the blue. The client was rather frazzled and said that he had just had a conversation with the Attorney General.
...
Mr. Shuman says he assured the client that everything was fine and he would get to the bottom of the issue. Mr. Shuman informed his attorney of the incident, and he sent a letter out to the Attorney General's office, advising them that if they had any concerns, GRE was more than willing to address them directly.
The Attorney General's office neither confirmed or denied any investigation, and responded that they would contact GRE, Inc. if they needed something. That should have been the end of the story, but it was just beginning. "A few days later I received a similar call from another client, same issue, the Attorney General had called them, grilling them about their mining claim purchased from GRE. Asking completely irrelevant questions, and then advising them not to contact GRE about the call. says Shuman.
...
Mr. Shuman reported that "GRE had issues with SITLA, and we feel that they are one of the most corrupt organizations we have ever dealt with. We even put up a website, stopSITLA.org to showcase some of their misdealing. Mr. Shuman believes that this may be motivation behind the continual harassment from Mr. Barton.
...
Says Mr. Shuman, "And it's making Utah a very difficult state to do business in." Mr. Shuman further disclosed, "We provide a very solid service, and work very hard to assure that all of our mining claims are valid.
...
Shuman asserts that out of the hundreds of Mining Claims they have sold, they have very few complaints.
