Mission Statement

The purposes and nature for which this corporation, a nonprofit charitable organization, is formed are:


Our mission is to bring about a consensus on the usage of public land through education and respect for private property without endangering the basic freedoms of our country. We have the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" as part of our heritage and access to a variety of usages on private and public lands is part of this right.


Who are we, and where are we about?

  • Resources Coalition came out of the small scale mining community and our goal is a balanced approach to use of our natural resources.
  • We strive to protect our rights, those that made our country great.

Susan Jo Wilson
Susan set out on her last great adventure to meet her Father in heaven on Feb. 27, 2014, after 71 years of a courageous, adventurous and cheerful life. As a four-time cancer survivor, her courage and determination influenced and amazed those who were fortunate enough to know her. Susan and Ronald Wilson were married Jan. 3, 1966, and she will be greatly missed by Ronald as he has now lost his wife, companion and partner in adventure. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Ronald and all of his family, as we also feel much sadness with the loss of our truly committed friend.
