Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 12, 2010 7A Strange sight over Indian Residents and others near the Moonlight Wildfire area last weeR were left to wonder about some strange heli- copter action they witnessed. For a helicopter with a strange tube- or missile-like thing dangling from it was flown back and forth over what seemed to them like the same area of the valley. The helicopter was actual- ly flying in a grid pattern over the Moonlight Valley, and the thingamajig dangling from it was a high-tech mag- netometer. The device can bc used to help locate mineral deposits, like copper, and map surface and bedrock geology in the top 500 feet of the Earth. The helicopter was from Fu- gro Airborne, a Canadian-based company hired by Novoro Cop- per Inc., a subsidiary of Starfield Resources Inc. According to an April press release, the electromag- netic survey targets were the Moonlight Valley, Superior and Engels copper mines, Os- meyer Ridge, Blue Copper, Sulfide Ridge, Copper Moun- tain and Ruby Mine. The copper exploration and possible mining in the Moonlight area has been a controversial subject in some circles, especially from a few nearby residents who posted signs with comments against the mining on the roads lead- ing into the Plumas Copper Belt area. Valley Strange helicopter action over the Moonlight Wildfire area sparked curiosity last week.
