My Pet Peeve…

Below are two maps of the same approximate area, several years apart:

3ace-tiger-names

 

3ace-pred

The property name has been changed from  3 Ace to 3 Aces. By the Golden Predator.

The Main Zone, with all the flashy visible gold is now the Queen of Hearts, apparently, the Sleeping Giant is Spades and all the other old zone names have also been changed. Just Because…

I think the name changes are specifically intended just to piss me off! The same perpetrators also changed old property names like Scheelite Dome to Gold Dome. And the Rhosgobel zone at Clear Creek to the Juno zone (even though they never even drilled it). All these changes piss me off…

I had to think about why I am angered by the changes. Perhaps because it makes comparisons between old and new results difficult. Perhaps because one of the joys of being a field geo/ prospector is being able to give a name to your baby, a new discovery. When they get changed for oh-so-clever marketing purposes by someone who spent 10 minutes on site it seems like a personal insult. So F you too!
