In the wake of his arrest on money-laundering charges, Richard T. Silberman was replaced Monday as chief executive officer of financially troubled Yuba Natural Resources, the company announced. Meanwhile, to many observers, the operations of Yuba Natural Resources remain as murky as the Yuba River.

M. Larry Lawrence, a major Yuba Natural Resources shareholder and owner of the Hotel del Coronado, lent the troubled company an undisclosed sum of money "for general business purposes" last week, Yuba acknowledged Monday, feeding speculation that the company is desperate for cash. On April 10, Lawrence filed a notice of a lien on Yuba Natural Resources, an action that usually occurs simultaneously with a loan, real estate attorneys said. Filed at the Yuba County recorder's office here, the financing statement lists three pages of silica mining equipment as security for Lawrence's loan.
