There will be a Am and PM battle with the swap meet at 12 noon and after the second battle.  The swap meet will be on the DAM as this is the parking lot and it is 60 ft wide with plenty of room.

Vendors are welcome.

Jeeps and motorcycles will be of limited use as not all of the roads and trails will be opened up.  You can bring them and we will use them as best as possible.  For the most part this is an Infantry style event.  In the future the road net work will accommodate most military vehicles as this was a Tiff Mine and most roads are hard packed rock.

Camp Siman is 157 acres of an old Tiff Mine.  Tiff was strip mined as well as shaft mined so this land is in places very ruff and in other places just ordinary Missouri Ozark woodlands.  As for now roads and trails ore being cleared and or built by hand.  In time the whole area will be accessible by trail.  Camp Siman is a multi year project. 

What is Tiff?

Baryte, or barite, (BaSO4) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate. The baryte group consists of baryte, celestine, anglesite and anhydrite. Baryte itself is generally white or colorless, and is the main source of barium. Baryte and celestine form a solid solution (Ba,Sr)SO4.
 

Names and history
The radiating form, sometimes referred to as Bologna Stone, attained some notoriety among alchemists for the phosphorescent specimens found in the 17th century near Bologna by Vincenzo Casciarolo.
 
The American Petroleum Institute specification API 13/ISO 13500 which governs baryte for drilling purposes does not refer to any specific mineral, but rather a material that meets that specification. In practice this is usually the mineral baryte.
 
The term "primary baryte" refers to the first marketable product, which includes crude baryte (run of mine) and the products of simple beneficiation methods, such as washing, jigging, heavy media separation, tabling, flotation. Most crude baryte requires some upgrading to minimum purity or density. Baryte that is used as an aggregate in a "heavy" cement is crushed and screened to a uniform size. Most baryte is ground to a small, uniform size before it is used as a filler or extender, an addition to industrial products, or a weighting agent in petroleum well drilling mud.
 
Name
The name baryte is derived from the Greek word βαρύς (heavy). The American spelling is barite. The International Mineralogical Association adopted "barite" as the official spelling when it formed in 1959, but recommended adopting the older "baryte" spelling in 1978,notably ignored by the Mineralogical Society of America.
 
Other names have been used for baryte, including barytine, barytite, schwerspath barytes, Heavy Spar, tiff and blanc.
Baryte occurs in a large number of depositional environments, and is deposited through a large number of processes including biogenic, hydrothermal, and evaporation, among others. Baryte commonly occurs in lead-zinc veins in limestones, in hot spring deposits, and with hematite ore. It is often associated with the minerals anglesite and celestine. It has also been identified in meteorites.
 
Baryte has been found at locations in Brazil, Nigeria, Canada, Chile, China, India, Greece, Guatemala, Iran, Ireland (where it was mined on Benbulben, Liberia, Mexico, Morocco, Peru, Romania (Baia Sprie), Turkey, South Africa (Barberton Mountain Land), Thailand, UK (Cornwall, Cumbria, Derbyshire, Durham, Perthshire, Argyllshire and Surrey and in the USA from Cheshire, Connecticut, De Kalb, New York and Fort Wallace, New Mexico. It is mined in Arkansas, Connecticut, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Nevada and Missouri.
 
The major baryte producers (in thousand tonnes, data for 2010) are as follows: China (3,600), India (1,000), United States (670), Morocco (460), Iran (250), Turkey (150) and Kazakhstan (100).
 
Uses
Some 77% worldwide is used as a weighting agent for drilling fluids in oil and gas exploration to suppress high formation pressures and prevent blowouts. As a well is drilled, the bit passes through various formations, each with different characteristics. The deeper the hole, the more barite is needed as a percentage of the total mud mix. An additional benefit of barite is that it is non-magnetic and thus does not interfere with magnetic measurements taken in the borehole, either during logging-while-drilling or in separate drill hole logging. Barite used for drilling petroleum wells can be black, blue, brown or gray depending on the ore body. The barite is finely ground so that at least 97% of the material, by weight, can pass through a 200-mesh (75-μm) screen, and no more than 30%, by weight, can be less than 6 μm diameter. The ground barite also must be dense enough so that its specific gravity is 4.2 or greater, soft enough to not damage the bearings of a tricone drill bit, chemically inert, and containing no more than 250 milligrams per kilogram of soluble alkaline salts.
 
Other uses are in added-value applications which include filler in paint and plastics, sound reduction in engine compartments, coat of automobile finishes for smoothness and corrosion resistance, friction products for automobiles and trucks, radiation-shielding cement, glass ceramics and medical applications (for example, a barium meal before a contrast CAT scan). Baryte is supplied in a variety of forms and the price depends on the amount of processing; filler applications commanding higher prices following intense physical processing by grinding and micronising, and there are further premiums for whiteness and brightness and color.
 
Historically baryte was used for the production of barium hydroxide for sugar refining, and as a white pigment for textiles, paper, and paint.
 
Although baryte contains a "heavy" metal (barium), it is not considered to be a toxic chemical by most governments because of its extreme insolubility.
 
Paleothermometry
In the deep ocean, away from continental sources of sediment, pelagic baryte crystallizes out and forms a significant amount of the sediments. Since baryte has oxygen, systematics in the δ18O of these sediments have been used to help constrain paleotemperatures for oceanic crust. Similarly the variations in sulfur isotopes are also being exploited.

Tiff, Missouri

Tiff is an unincorporated community in eastern Washington County, Missouri, United States. It is located about eight miles northeast of Potosi. It was named for the barite ore found here, also known as "tiff". The community was founded as a company town in the early 1900s by John Cambel to house miners for his South East Missouri Barytes Company.

This is a FREE event and OPEN HOUSE, the event is designed to showcase this new site of 157 acres.  Teaser Tactical is the first in a series of Tactical's being planned for Camp Siman. This event is WW II any impression, any Theater any Nationality so long as it is correct.  Lets have fun! 

There will be two planned scenarios one AM and one PM followed by a walking tour and the FREE Swap Meet on the parking lot.

Bring a tactical lunch and water, we will have a few cases of water on site.  This is a primitive site NO utilities of any kind and the nearest services are 7.2 miles away. We will have a field latrine in use. Metal stakes are recommended for tents as this is an old Tiff Mine.  Fire wood on site. 

There will be overnight camping on Friday and on request on Saturday night.  Military vehicles are welcome but will be of limited use as only sections of the old roads have been opened.  Pyrotechnics will depend on the weather.  All HRS and 6th Corps LHG STL MO Safety and Authenticity  regulations are in force.   

We will use OC's for all Camp Siman Events.  They will be identified with a blue 6th Corps arm band and they will be unarmed.  Radios will be in use by staff. 

This is important:  DO NOT ARRIVE WITH LOADED MAGAZINES, end blocks and stripper clips can be loaded machine gun belts are OK, WE MUST SEE THE CRIMP ON ALL ROUNDS.. ALL BLANKS WILL BE INSPECTED BEFORE THE EVENT!  ALL WEAPONS WILL BE BLANK ADAPTED IN A CORRECT FASHION, IF YOUR SEMI-AUTOMATIC IS NOT BLANK ADAPTED DON'T BRING IT, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO FIRE SINGLE ROUND.  All loose blank rounds must be in plastic bags loose enough to lay flat so as to see the crimp.

NO LIVE ROUNDS END OF STORY.       

Parking will be Gate Three or "That Dam Road", parking will be on top of the 1800 ft long dam.  The FREE Swap Meet will be held at the same location.  Registration and S&A will be at the Crossroads on Homestead Lane. at Lake Shore Drive in the center of the property. This is the HQ and camping area of Camp Siman.     
 
Please pre-register BUT NOT REQUIRED.  WALK ON'S WELCOME!  GATES LOCKED @9AM NO ADMITTANCE AFTER THAT TIME. 

Limited phone service on top of the dam. 

We hope to see you on 21 March 2015 at Camp Siman, Tiff, MO.  We are talking about hosting a PTO late summer 2015 and an Eastern Front later in the year or early 2016.

The Staff at Camp Siman.

This is a carry on carry off site, take your trash with you.  In the field, leave only brass behind.

Camp Siman Events

World At War: Campaign #1 Teaser Tactical & Swap Meet

22-23 March 2015

The weather was perfect for the entire weekend, warm days, cold nights and dry.  We had several camp from Friday to Sunday.  We had 24 pre-registers with 20 showing and 16  participating as one left when the jeep broke down while unloading and two others were camp sitters including the property owner and two OC's.  We had five Germans, five Americans, three Russians and one British.

We covered a lot ground during the three scenarios, capturing the Crossroads and the Spill Way then a reversal on the Crossroads with a lunch in the middle.  I believe a good time was had by all.

Thank you to the members of 6th Corps and our guests for participating in this first time event.
