About Us and Oregon Copper Bearing Sunstone
|Meet The Owners of Double Eagle Mining Company, owner operators
Debbie and John Aldrich. Both have strong interest in rare gemstones
and being able to mine this rare Oregon Copper Bearing Sunstone and to
make it available to the world is a privilege to both. John, being of Native
American heritage believes strongly in being a good steward of the earth
and to make sure it is preserved for future generations.
We look forward to helping you with your purchase of Oregon Sunstone. We
sell direct to the industry and the public alike.
Environmentally Friendly Mining is not an easy task. We are proud of
our operation plans and goals. We use a dry screening process which uses
no water or chemicals, eliminating the chance of introducing contaminates
into the soil. Even our camp waste (wash) water has to be contained and
hauled out to a waste water treatment facility. We only use the bare
minimum equipment and runtime necessary to extract the Feldspar crystals
from the host Basalt flows. Our camp is solar powered with a fuel efficient
Honda backup generator. We are proud of the fact that we mine 4-5
months a year and our carbon footprint is less than most homes for 2
Reclamation and restoring of the mining site and any test areas is an
ongoing responsibility and goal of Double Eagle Mining. After the extraction
of all marketable minerals and crystals; all natural tailings and rubble are
returned to the mining site. All testing sites are backfilled in a timely manner.
After backfilling and returning the surface area to its natural state, we
reseed with wild indigenous plant seed specific to the area. Our goal and
mission is to return all disturbed areas back to their natural state for all
future generations and wild life to enjoy.
