“Native American Mining Solutions LLC” (NAMS) is a privately held Limited Liability Company filed in January 2010, with the objective of evaluating abandoned mining claims for the potential of strategic, industrial, precious, or rare earth elements that are economically viable to pursue.
As a result of almost 5 years of research and assaying, the company has staked and claimed 880 acres of placer claims, as of January 2015. The company’s business plan is to license, permit, and place into full operation a 10-Ton @ hour Separation Plant by the end of 2015.
The company is currently registering as a Majority Woman-Owned and Minority-Owned Company. This will allow the company an opportunity to participate in various Grant Programs and Government Contracts that are made available under the Small Business JOBS Act of the “Start-up America” Initiative, with special emphasis on Critical Minerals.
The Founding Member and Executive Director of NAMS shares a direct blood-line to the Native American Tribes of the NW Territories. Her heritage is as a direct descendant of Mary Ann Sualis (Bertrand) (c.1842-1918) the sister of noted Sto:lo (First Nations) Chief “Captain John” Sualis of the Nooksack and Soowahlie Tribes of NW Washington State and Cultus Lake B.C. (c. 1850). The Parents of Mary Ann Sualis was Chief John (Full-Blooded Nooksack Indian) and mother “Christine” (1/2 Nooksack Indian and 1/2 Skagit Indian). History about them can be found at the Chilliwack British Columbia Canada Museum and Archives, the Nooksack Tribal Archives, the Blaine & Bellingham WA Historic Society Archives, as well as assorted Historical Newspaper Articles.
