The guy shoveling gravel into a mini trommel in his, or someone else's front yard, as he talks about SDRC.
Are any of SDRC's supposed mining operations a placer? So why the hobbyist-level nonsense?
A small curation of recently made company Tweets:
As a response to inquiries from current and potential investors, we determined that it was best to respond publicly : $SDRC@SDRCMINING's current board members have never sold or otherwise unrestricted any of their shares, and they have never done so in the past. This statement…— Sidney Resources Corp. (@SDRCMINING) July 11, 2023
I can also say not a single board member has lifted a restriction on any of our shares. How many boards can say the same thing. I have held shares including shares I purchased before being asked to join the company for over a decade.— Sidney Resources Corp. (@SDRCMINING) July 15, 2022
$SDRC Sidney's board and leadership is committed to the success of the company and it's vision moving forward. This year and within the last month the board has purchased over $1,000,000 in private restricted shares to support operations to production. Production in Oct. #GOLD— Sean-Rae Zalewski (@SeanRaeZalewski) August 7, 2023
Sure. Since he’s a board member. Corey just made a $750k deposit to fund winter production and various things needed to keep the site operational all year.— Sean-Rae Zalewski (@SeanRaeZalewski) September 15, 2023
Plus someone else invested 25k separately.
Hope that helps
no more backing is needed btw. We are fully funded at this time. We are focused on achieving production and creating meaningful distributions/realized return to our shareholders— Sean-Rae Zalewski (@SeanRaeZalewski) September 20, 2023
Check out the video in their latest press release on OTC Markets. The guy shoveling gravel into a mini trommel in his, or someone else's front yard, as he talks about SDRC. I don't know who is running the promotions dept/ IRP, but I thought that PR was ridiculous. Makes them look like amateurs in my opinion.
They should just knock off the hype and mine some damn gold.
The only necessary Pr's at this point are when production starts and when they announce gold sales.
Wow, impressive loot these guys are pulling in!
16.86 million new shares issued?
Quote "Sean Rae Zalewski's exceptional leadership as CEO of Sidney Resources Corporation has been instrumental in securing critical funding and forging invaluable networks that have propelled our company to new heights that include winter operations. “
What new heights would those be? The outstanding share count?
It certainly isn’t the Share price
As for winter operations, at almost 7000 ft, , I will believe it when I see production in Jan-Feb

Groundhog Mining changes to Western Frontier (Laser Tech?)
In 2017, Groundhog Mining and Milling, LLC entered a partnership agreement with Merger Mines (developers of the Graduated Optical Collimator) to act as System Trainer and as Contract Operator for all underground operations. This was in In conjunction with technical support from Frencken America and IPG Photonics. "After training completed, the system/unit would be turned over to the purchaser or leasee for their use as desired. System Maintenance of the Scan Head and Laser must, however, be accomplished by either Groundhog Mining, Frencken America, or IPG Photonics as applicable."
In 2018, Sidney Resources Corp and Merger Mines entered a Joint Venture agreement in which the Graduated Optical Collimator will be field tested and ultimately deployed for mining operations on properties being explored and developed by SDRC. This agreement as facilitated by a third party named Energy Capital Funding Group, LLC who was conducting a joint financing of the two companies.
In 2021, Sidney Resources Corporation hired Gary Mladjan and launched their Mining Technology Division. This "new division plan will actively engineer and design the inaugural "thermal fracturing" prototype units for the mining industry and adjunct applications in the areas of construction and rescue where safe and efficient removal of material is required." SDRC completed an extensive assessment regarding the economic feasibility and funding options to launch this new division and 7 million shares of common restricted stock were issued to Gary Mladjan for the rights to his design of the “Graduated Optical Collimator”. During October 2021, Merger Mines also agreed to an offer, from Sidney Resources, in exchange for restricted shares, to transfer the intellectual property and all related rights to the Laser Mining Project.
As of Q2 2023, Groundhog Mining and Milling ceased to be contracted to work Sidney Resources Corp's underground operations. They were replaced by Western Frontier Exploration & Mining.
We are on the 9th month of 2023, and all you've posted on in 2023 are a handful of stocks you don't like. I am wondering if you actually like any stocks? Yanno, if there's any company with an OTC ticker you think is worth saying something positive about. Otherwise, what's with this copy paste job you are putting on multiple tickers? Are you just the caped crusader of IHUB? An altruist with nothing better to do with your time? Please enlighten us about your intentions. Why is a grown man (I am assuming) spending his Sunday morning copying and pasting the same message on boards of tickers associated with someone you really seem not to like?
For the length of my last post, it's surprising how little we know of these guys (Western Frontier & Steve Dobson).
Upon demonstrating the dead-end in my research, Sunnyland immediately responded to me "ill find out something for you. They're just busy underground." For the time being, this served to silence any further inquiry. His man at RBMC, Steve Cyros and perhaps a few others I will be in contact with, will physically be in Warren Idaho for SDRC's upcoming shareholders' meeting. At the very least I hope to find out more on this subject then.
I'm not gonna lie. Id rather have a thorough history of work to look at in order to determine WFEM's and Steve Dobson's qualifications, the reputation they are staking their professional advice on, and in order to evaluate the supposed "upgrade" from Groundhog. I'd be more much comfortable with that than being told to "trust me bro" in conjunction with a brand new website for a new company with no references.
The whole Steve Dobson mystery is another thing... I have been told by a few fellow investors, "what are you doubting the guy exists?"... In truth, I'm doubting investors are placing enough importance upon fully understanding what is guiding this company's decisions and the dramatic changes that have been made on their behalf in the past year. I am uncomfortable contending with the fact that management sees this as normal and hasn't addressed it yet. If we know SDRC is now holding industry standards in contempt (such as establishing a resource, then reserve, then feasibility, then construction, then production) then we need to know the details about what went into such decisions or else it is impossible to properly evaluate this as an investment.
If someone from SDRC is reading this, please take this (and the rest of my posts) as constructive criticism. I believe in your capacity for success despite whatever setbacks and I don't believe I am alone when I say I value a high standard for disclosure and transparency.
WESTERN FRONTIER EXPLORATION & MINING (WFEM) / GEOLOGIST STEVE DOBSON:
...What We Know and What We Don’t...
WFEM is a Nevada limited liability company, headquartered in Elko Nevada.
It was incorporated December 5th 2022.
WFEM changed their name from “Wild West Mine Services” as of March 2023.
I cannot find anything further on any company going by this name.
CEO since August 2021. The man has connections to Montana Tech. Quite a few of the followers of the company’s Instagram and Linkedin are students and alumni of Montana Technological University. SDRC is known to have partnered with Montana Tech’s Internship program.
SDRC hired WFEM no earlier than Q2 2023.
Before this date, SDRC’s mining contractor was Groundhog Mining and Milling. WFEM was not mentioned publicly by SDRC before August 2023/Q2. According to Q1 filings, SDRC disclosed that Groundhog had submitted a comprehensive mining plan for 2023 and beyond. 1 quarter later, it is said that WFEM had agreed with this mining plan, stating specifically: “Absolutely do not conduct a surface drill program. Get on the vein as they plan and go after it.”
SDRC has mentioned WFEM and/or geologist Steve Dobson so far in 4 publications:

There are nuclear-powered space shuttles in use currently by NASA?
You didn't respond to my question. The answer is no, NASA hasn't flown a shuttle since 2011.
But aside from that, the laser mining crap is a joke, just a gimmick. This is a company that can't do even the most basic exploration. And somehow they found themselves a friendly geologist who says nahhhh, drilling is unnecessary, just start mining!!
Read my post history. Nobody in their right mind would call me a pumper. I value balanced, honest debate. I have done more to promote that than anybody active on this board currently - presenting point after point, supporting evidence, and with possible rebuttals. Despite uncertainties, I still see promise in SDRC due to the big picture they are pursuing, although I see this as a longer term proposition that I would say most bullish on this stock would admit.
Retrospect, you must be mistaken. I have never invested in or have ever said anything about GGSM or TRSI in my life. I stay away from shells and dilutive messes unless I have a very good reason to make an exception.
Are these lies based on my recent comments on BYRG? I don't remember those comments being particularly positive ether. BYRG is an old scam ticker and I maintain that it is super risky. I'm pretty sure even Sunnyland has more than he bargained for with such a filthy stock and CEO. The mining side may have some promise into exploration (only because of Hard Rock Consulting's involvement) but not if the corporate side continues to be hopeless myer.
You guys need to get your act together and raise the quality of the conversation here. Resorting to lies and personal attacks are cheap. Isn't this conversation supposed to be about SDRC?
Why do you even give that guy surrealist the time of the day? He’s a known pumper and puts out false info all the time and every play he is in ends up at zero. $BYRG $TRSI $GGSM and countless others that got suspended
Answer to Gitreal Question #3: “There are nuclear-powered space shuttles in use currently by NASA? Really?”
Yes sir. Nuclear powered space shuttles and space stations are currently in use by USA, Russia, and China. I found a list for you on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_power_systems_in_space
It's a tall order for one small company to claim to solve ALL the problems of mining on other planets, but perhaps there is someone out there who hopes to in the coming generations, & can appreciate that SDRC may have figured out at least one small but crucial aspect of it.
Dr. Ryan Norman, nuclear physicist and researcher at NASA, & board-member of SDRC, seems to think there is enough promise to this project that he decided to stake his reputation it. This is a relationship contributing to what I like to call SDRC's “Economic and Anthropological Advantage.” 😂
The laser mining idiocy is a gimmick and a diversion, nothing less. How about they focus on doing some real exploration, establish some reserves or at least a resource?
There are nuclear-powered space shuttles in use currently by NASA? Really?
Answer to Gitreal Question #2: “They have mining lasers powered by nuclear energy!! Isn't that enough to justify going all in?”
The laser-mining apparatus is currently being powered by whatever electricity source is present on the 2nd floor of the "Center for Welding, Joining and Coatings Research" building at Colorado School of mines.
What Sean actually said (in referring to nuclear energy) is that the laser-spalling system is mobile enough to at least be powered by the nuclear-powered space shuttles in use currently at NASA. This makes it an option for the moon-mining methods undergoing research & development by US and Chinese governments. He also mentioned the laser-spalling system can be powered by solar.
Promotion of the interplanetary-mining angle is something I find to be very "out on a limb." We have enough problems with risks and uncertainties with mining on Earth! I happen to believe that if we were to experience a cyclical boom in space-mining investments, although likely to be favorable for SDRC and the commercialization of their laser mining, it will likely produce 99% failures and scams. CEO Sean should be very deliberate, and careful with his intention to enter this space.
Supporting the space mining angle at SDRC is board-member Dr. Ryan Norman who is a scientist at NASA Langley Research Center. His specialty is in nuclear engineering and radiation shielding. He must be weighing in on this subject at company board meetings, influencing the recent language of CEO Sean. Check out Dr. Norman's history of scholarly works here: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=K4e3m0AAAAAJ&hl=en
SDRC's Laser Mining system is in EARLY STAGES despite being in development for over a decade and having achieved spallation of rock – something its predecessors were not able to accomplish from laser alone. Expect the system to be optimized for power usage and efficiency over time. The development of this tech, although showing promising results, is far from over. Financing deals can enter at any stage, though, it is a long way from being put into service. I am pretty sure that lower power levels are optimal for spalling and a 4kw laser will at any point be deemed overkill / unnecessary for mature iterations of this product.
They have mining lasers powered by nuclear energy!! There's that......isn't that enough to justify going all in?
I say again, I am bullish on SDRC.
I have owned shares in SDRC since 2020. As someone enthusiastic for this stock I naturally gravitate towards others enthusiastic for this stock. Yes I do take part in Sunnyland's chatroom and I have no shame in it. I am fond of and friendly with the man. If anyone claims perfection, they are diluting you. I believe I contribute a much more balanced view on my investments than many others there, and if what you're saying is right about that forum being a pumper's paradise, I'm surprised such hasn't gotten me in more trouble than it has. Believe it or not, I value sound DD, and I am constantly re-evaluating my bull case constructively. Through all of it, and despite uncertainties, I remain overall optimistic on the big picture for SDRC.
As for BYRG, full disclosure, I do own shares in the company. I own way less than I used to however. It has become clear to me that the CEO is dangerous, with 1 and a half feet already towards going rogue with his 7 billion + shares. I think the hiring of expertise (Hard Rock Consulting) and the developments with USGS and WYGS doing geological reconnaissance in that area along side HRC's geologists are a testament to the legitimacy and promising future for that project. It's the corporate side and share-structure side that is a near hopeless mess. Only if it can be cleaned up and the company built into something that can get anything done on corporate side in any reasonable amount of time, I'd say that could turn into an opportunity. Permanent damage to the brand of that company has taken place, and by virtue of it's connection to SDRC, a much better company in every way, BYRG is close to parasitizing that relationship. I question why anyone would incorporate such an ambitious mining project under such a stock with so much baggage in the first place? Re-commercializing something like the New Rambler mining district (A platinum prospect, that until proven, most of the world will be convinced is impossible) is hard enough.
Quote"BYRG? Bless your heart. "
Not sure what you mean by that, but according to sources you were one of the many Sunnyland discord chat room posters who was very upset today with BYRG and Sunny. Is BYRG the next GGSM?
I guess the pictures of the new SDRC equipment didn't have the expected impact on share price? Unfortunately , I don't see this moving til they actually consistently mine some gold . I believe the constant social media promotion is hurting more than helping.
BYRG? Bless your heart.
Dan Hally has always been listed as one of the directors on the Red Beryl Mining Company team. Check out the bizapedia profile: https://www.bizapedia.com/ut/red-beryl-mining-company-inc.html
Ever since Hard Rock Consulting was hired at BYRG, Dan Hally hasn't been involved with that project. I doubt its interfering with his duties at SDRC in the slightest. BYRG has enough to chew on with the mining side, and simultaneously navigating that mess of a corporate side has proved too much of an obstacle for management. Its an unorganized company with a scamy past with prohibitive baggage. Super weak on corporate side, super ambitious on mining side, that's broad sentiment of BYRG. Meanwhile, company is penny-pinching on IR, legal, and other internal tasks, probably relying on Red Beryl's support way more than people realize.
SDRC, however, has a very strong corporate side comparatively. Sure exploration isn't as thorough as we want it, feasibility nowhere near definitive, and there's heavy leaning on technological edge tempting skeptics to assume is a red flag. Nevertheless, SDRC is driving expansion and growth whatever it takes. They're building a business. They have put together one hell of a diversified team and to what end is still a mystery. I remain cautiously optimistic on SDRC from here. Not sure what their association with BYRG will entail here on out, however loose it is , and how it will impact their brand. I reiterate, cautiously optimistic.
What are these questions you have inspired by Dan Hally's relationship to Red Beryl / BYRG? I'll do my best to answer them if you let me know what they are.
I wouldn’t touch BYRG with a 10ft pole. Now I have even more questions about SDRC.
So if I have this right, Dan Halley, the Chief operating officer of SDRC is working for Red Beryl Mining which is owned by Sunnyland ?
The same guy who is constantly promoting both SDRC and BYRG in his discord chat room and on Twitter?
Was looking at BYRG tanking this morning, and took a look at their PR’s on OTC, and came across this one which threw me for a loop.
Buyer Group International Inc Signs Statement of Work To Head up 2022 Exploration with Dan Hally of Red Beryl Mining Inc
Press Release | 12/15/2021
Buyer Group International Inc. singed a Statement of Work for 14.5 Million Restricted Shares Common for exploration in 2022 of the Wyoming property.
Buyer Group International, Inc (OTCMKTS:BYRG)
As of December 11, 2021 Buyer Group International Inc. is pleased to announce a Statement of Work with Red Beryl Mining Inc as Service Provider with Dan Hally as Head of Exploration for the 2022 Season.
The work will last through the 2022 season and at a mild cost of 14.5 Million Common Restricted shares which have been issued as payment to Red Beyrl Mining Inc. for the budgeting, costs and services for exploration of the 1446 acre PGM project in Albany County, Wyoming.David Bryant, was quoted "As we seek out Platinum Group Metals we are excited to bring in such an industry pro with a solid background and knowledge of the area to speed exploration of this magnificent area. This is another huge score for us at BYRG. The restricted share deal will allow us to maximize our capital deployment and bring in solid work partnerships that will accelerate our discovery of what we all hope is the motherload of PGMs. We are familiar with the work Dan did at SDRC mining and are impressed with his record. This is a very exciting time for us and we excited to have Dan on board with us."
Asked to provide a quote for the new venture, Dan Hally gave this,
"Buyer Group International, Inc recognizes that now is the time for decisive action for the development of domestic mineral supplies. Platinum and Rhodium are the top two minerals in short supply, and I am honored to have the opportunity to work with David Bryant to help win the race to secure the supply chains for the technologies of tomorrow."
He went on to say, "Our national security and economic well-being are at stake and supporting the efforts of David and his team is being in the fight instead standing on the sidelines. I have been studying Buyer Group International for some time now and I am honored for the opportunity to be a part of a company that recognizes the value of honesty and integrity. I look forward to pairing my knowledge, experience, and expertise with David Bryant. I have no doubt how bright the future is for Buyer Group International, Inc. Projects under the management of BYRG are critical
That stuff is amateur hour scammery....
I expect better from these guys than to pull the old "special assay" ploy.
LMAO, I showed that PR to a geologist buddy of mine at breakfast this morning. He said the same thing you did. 3 samples?
Marvin Method? Secret sauce? He said more but I will leave it at that.
And It’s not even 3 samples. It’s 2 because one of them was redone via a different method.
Score another red flag for SDRC.
Yup. Gobbledygook PR....secret proprietary assay methods....Marvin Method? 3 samples of "ore"? Classic.
Thank you for a thoughtful response. Because I'm not any sort of expert, I appreciate reasoned discussion. I am looking forward to seeing some revenue in the coming year(s). For me, SDRC is a longer term investment, based in part a belief that gold will be a significant way to beat the inflationary path of paper dollars.
Groundhog / Western Frontiers geological opinions are presented to shareholders with an attached conflict of interest, especially when in conflict with Rick Hurt, Pete Ellsworth, Chris Christopherson's, and other opinions from independent third parties. Much of these are disclosed but many remain to be seen. I say this because we know Groundhog / Western Frontier will be getting the mining contract regardless. They will say whatever they need to to ensure the most lucrative contract from SDRC. Pushing for production and not for potentially disqualifying drill campaigns are to be expected from such parties and should be of little use investors.
It has been known for some time now that SDRC isn't doing sampling work to establish or prove reserves, which would otherwise be the case if they intended on conducting a feasibility study. It is only done to grow an "inferred estimate for recovery." They intend to minimally confirm gold occurrences at the spots they plan on extracting ore from. What else they do with these astronomical inferred values on social media, despite experts saying they need more information to draw conclusions, should be of little use to investors.
For the time being, this should not be considered an exploration company. The name of the game now is: Will the eminent revenues from Lucky Ben, despite the absence of an accurate projected value of the mine, be consistent and profitable enough? Will the market celebrate the first year of revenues? Will the market accept revenue guidances backed by inferred values alone?
Lots of “I believe”s. Lol, Did people expect him to say he doesn’t believe? Every miner believes their mine is the next bonanza. The OTC graveyard is littered with those companies.
I believe this is a mistake. Lucky Ben is an underground mine and should be extensively drilled to prove up whatever resource was left behind or missed by the original miners. I guess we will see what happens.
Quote “I would not change a single thing in their mining plan of operations. Absolutely do not conduct a surface drill program. Get on the vein as they plan and go after it. “
Steve Dobson , the Geologist for Western Frontier, had this to say about the progress at Lucky Ben:
"Based upon what I have studied on the claims under Sidney Resources and the geology of the area, I believe Sidney has the potential with Western Frontier to turn this into a very substantial gold and silver mining operation for the region.
I believe Sidney Resources is on a significant system and I believe this is an extremely significant gold bearing structure. It appears the strike length for the Lucky Ben vein alone exceeds a length of over 10,000 feet and the depth could reach well beyond the previously believed depth of 800 feet.
Everything I have observed is positive and confirms the history of the area. I would not change a single thing in their mining plan of operations. Absolutely do not conduct a surface drill program. Get on the vein as they plan and go after it.
We also located two additional veins on Sidney's claims that run parallel to the Lucky Ben. One vein was 6 feet wide, and the second vein was 8 feet wide. These can be accessed and mined from the Lucky Ben tunnel. We did extensive sampling and mapping of these vein structures and of the ore stockpiles. I believe today's efforts will result in great news for Sidney Resources when the assay reports come back.
EXACTLY. This is a pump and dump promotion run by Mr. Sunnyland and co. It’s sad to watch his minions in the discord so heavily invested in a company that is on the brink of total collapse. We’re seeing it unfold before our eyes
The story is over. Consider yourself lucky if you get out above .1
Clearly going there
