Re: Bonnie Claire for sale

HA! That's funny and you are the second person this week that said the same thing about connecting the CBD with marijuana and not the Center for Biological Diversity. Most old desert explorers remember the CBD for their involvement in Surprise Canyon 20 years ago... https://www.biologicaldiversity.o...

Re: Bonnie Claire for sale

That would be a great 9 mile commute. Close enough to go home for coffee and lunch while one is working their new mine. I thought that the listing of the property might have something to do with the latest lithium speculation. I found this in a April 18, 2019 USGS report... "Bonnie Claire appears to...
