Introductions were made as there many new faces.

There were 4 board members and 1 alternate present.

Secretary, Kimberlee Raymond read the minutes from the April meeting.  As there were no corrections, motions were made and carried to approve minutes as read.

Correspondence:  We received a letter from the D.E.Q. letting us know that our bond was sufficient and has been released from the work on the Wilson Bar claim.

Claims:  Jim Hinesley reported that all claims are accessible.  Some drifts still present but all are open for prospecting.
