  1. We should have known earlier. According to Clay at My Land Matters: Mining is exempt from lockdown Did you know mining activities have been declared an essential industry? Mining is on the US Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency's ‘Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce’ list.
  2. I'm strictly a detector operator, so when a friend asked me about the ins and outs of dry washing on public lands, I was at a loss. I told him that I would ask the knowledgeable folks here on the forum. Specifically, is dry washing considered casual use of the land, just as metal detecting and panning are? Is a mining claim and/or notice of intent or plan of operation required for motorized dry washers? Thanks in advance for your insights!
  3. Hey guys!! So I'm wondering if anyone knows the Oregon law or can point me to a link (I've exhausted google on this) if I can use a recirculating sluice powered by a 12v battery back at camp and bring dirt up from the river to work. I've put in phone calls down to Salem numerous times and have never received a call back. I think after reading the 700 permit rules I would need this permit if I was discharging tailings back into the river but I'm unclear if I bring the dirt up if that's still a no-no. Oregon mining laws in general are pretty frustrating to try and navigate. I really
  4. Good mornin' y'all- I have done several hours of solid research this morning about lode staking and I have not found conclusive answers to theae two questions yet. These questions are only for the initial time you actually discover the lode area and place the monument on the diacovery, before sending in any paperwork/filing forms/fees, etc. If you have any experience with these specific areas of lode claim staking here in CA, I would very, very much appreciate any advice, experience, and or details you have to share. Thank you very much for your time, experience, and your help. 1. D
  5. Hi Guys I've started this post to inform members and non member detectorists that the NQMA (North Queensland Miners Association) is lobbying the Queensland Mines department to change access laws to EPM's (exploration tenements) The proposed change would ban detecting and prospecting on exploration tenements without the consent of the tenement holder. This would effectively ban metal detecting in any gold field as they are mostly covered by exploration tenements. Whats worse is that more than half of the members of the NQMA are detectorists or hobby prospectors. And they are usi
  6. Alaska raised the annual state mining claim rental rates substantially in August, as people who got the billing know. The state website fact sheet still shows the old rates however and people who did not get the billing may be in for a unpleasant surprise. http://dnr.alaska.gov/mlw/hottopics/pdf/new-rental-rates-for-mining-claims.pdf NEW RENTAL RATES FOR MINING CLAIMS, LEASEHOLD LOCATIONS, PROSPECTING SITES, AND LEASES On August 1st, the Office of the Lt. Governor approved a change to 11 AAC 86, setting forth new rental rates for mining claims, prospecting sites, and mining leas
  7. Has anyone come across a good quitclaim deed for transferring ownership of mining claims? This would be for California. Tons of forms on internet but was wondering if anyone found a specific one that worked great. Thanks.
  8. Join Jeff on the adventure of taking the Annual Assessment paperwork in to the Sacramento BLM office.
  9. I wanted to share what threatens in Poland for using the detector. For your passion in Poland, you can go to prison for 8 years ?. You can have the landowner's permission, you can have permission from the government, and you still have eight years of danger. Legally, you can detect only on the beaches. Appreciate that you can practice your hobby.
  10. This post is for the newbies that are still confuse after hours of hours of research to where you CAN, CAN’T or/and MAY metal detect. I’ve seen so many posts in this forum with great finds. Without getting in the discussion of specific places, such as State Parks, County Parks, State Forest, DNR, etc. Where do you guys metal detect, do not tell me everyone is hunting ONLY in Private Land! I think people should share their experience, I’m not talking about telling the location of your jackpot, I’m talking about where are YOU hunting, most important what kind of LAND it is. To clarify, I’m just
  11. Josh Bohmker is a friend of mine and his name is at the top of a lawsuit against the State of Oregon. I wanted to let you guys know what's going on with this and how you can help. Back story - in 2016 Oregon banned motorized mining on many public lands, basically taking away the main gold reclamation methods that have been in use since 1872. This is similar to the California ban, though until recently Oregon has been much more pro-mining. The big issue with this is that it gives away the decision making of how we use public lands to a select group of interested state parties wit
  12. Hey all, While reading up on and watching YT vids on the current tech, product performance reviews and such, learning the lingo, narrowing down what I would want to do with a unit and narrowing down possible equipment if I were to jump into this hobby, until now, after reading some others posts from here and around the world, it never dawned on me to consider what kind of bureaucratic BS, restrictions, laws and such that metal detecting is susceptible to in the US. Gaining permission from private property owners is a no brainer, but other than that....................? Do you ha
  13. I know of a great location spot for relic hunting. The only problem is that it's on federal land. I think it's also part of a federal national park or recreation area. However, the location used to belong to my spouse's grandmother and was the place of her birth and childhood. About 50 years ago, the land was taken through imminent domain. Due to this family connection, is there a legal process or procedure that would allow me to metal detect there? And if so, would there be special rules concerning any finds? Any advice would be appreciated.
  14. Does anyone know what the details are of the expansions of Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks contained in the new bill just passed in Congress? I could not find any details where the expansions are shown.
  15. Not quite sure where to put this Steve. It will probably have some interest for western prospectors and the eastern hunters are going to find it really useful. You decide if it needs to be moved and I'll go with it. Land Matters has begun a new section on their website for new projects in development. The most recent new project is Forest Ownership. This new map tracks Forest Boundaries as well as both surface and subsurface (mineral) ownership on the National Forest System. "Forest Ownership" may sound funny since the common assumption is that all National Forest lands are created equ
  16. If you have comments on these proposed revisions, the deadline is June 4. It’s very important that we hear from many of you on this important issue. NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES ON MINING IN THE REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES BRIEF DESCRIPTION The Department of Natural Resources proposes to change regulations on mining rights, addressing claim location, conflicting rights, annual labor, and penalties and eligibilities to cure abandonments. The Department of Natural Resources proposes to change regulations on mining. The Department of Natural R
  17. For those Alaskans unaware, DNR has been trying to revise certain sections of the Alaska mining statutes. Our Alaska legislature is no better than the DC circus! DNR said the hell with them (my words) and has switched gears toward regulation change. I just received this notice. "Dear Recipient, The Department of Natural Resources proposes to change regulations on mining. The Department of Natural Resources proposes to adopt regulation changes in Title 11 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with mining, including the following: (1) 11 AAC 86.215 i
  18. Last week I went to get my Alaska dredging permits. Usually they give you the diverge permit when you get the Habitat Permit for the Fish and Game. When I got there they informed me I had to go to the Department of Environmental Conservation for the diverge permit where I had to pay $25. So it begins
  19. I'm surprised the prospectors in Southern California haven't picked up on this. The Obama administration went on a public land closure spree just after Christmas 2016. The most disturbing of those withdrawals was the withdrawal of the last scattered bits of public land not already under withdrawals for wilderness, military, National parks, wild and scenic sewers, or study areas in the Southern California Conservation Area. This particular December 28, 2016 withdrawal was literally the last gasp for public lands open to location in the desert conservation area. 1,337,904 (1.3 million) acr
  20. how strict are these rules enforced,,,,,,,,,,,, lets say a spoon or a crevice tool on the banks of a river ?????
  21. The 10 million acre Sagebrush chicken withdrawal is no more! The withdrawal has been withdrawn. BLM cancels 10 million acre Sagebrush Focal Area Withdrawal Proposal Read that and then go beeping. 10 million acres is gonna take you a few weekends to detect so get started early.
  22. I got a call at my business the other day. A miner was desperate to get some reclamation work done. I thought I had this guy pegged as another miner that made a mess on public land and now he is being told he has to clean it up. I was wrong. I ask his where the work was and what needed to be done. When he told me I told him this could cost several thousand dollars. He said he well understood the cost involved but the U.S.F.S. was going to keep his bond in addition to charging him for them to do the work which was several times more expensive than what I told him my work might cost. The work w
  23. I would like to ask a question (and I hope this question does not turn political) What is the opinion or thoughts of most of you boys on the other side of the world about unfilled detector holes left by others. Here in Australia we are have a big problem with unfilled detector holes to the extent that some of our goldfields could be shut down because of it. Is it a problem over there and how do you guys combat it. Please guys just general comments as I don't want this to get heated and removed as I know it can be a touchy subject. Wombat
  24. I made a call to BLM in Canon City Colorado to see what it took to dredge on the Arkansas River. In years past the permit was free but then it cost to get the same permit. I talk with this Lady at BLM and told her what I wanted. I told her that is was a member to GPAA and Gold Prospectors of Colorado. The first thing she told me I could get a dredging permit from the GPOC and that is because they have a bond covering the members. When she said that I knew that is why the club charge extra for dredging. Now at the same time she said that GPAA hadn't done the same so I couldn't get a perm
  25. Can anyone guide me on removing a non paying/performing signer from a placer claim? This person will not return calls, emails or execute a quit claim mailed to them. Thanks for any help! Chris
