Most are only a five dollar increase but if you did not included the correct amount it could cause problems including the loss of your claim. I have tried to highlight the federal register notice areas of interest and the table of the increases. The new amount is on the far right side of the table. Major issue for most miners at this time is the increase in the filing fee with BLM for the Affidavit of Labor or Proof of Labor, this is ...

AMRA members are being denied their rights to LEGAL claims by the USFS and also by the Idaho Department of Water resources. Neither organization can point to a law forbidding the activity and have cited jail time and fines if they do not cease mining. This is a call to action to all miners and Patriots!

National Monuments are totally controlled as recreational areas with location rights removed. In virtually all instances that I know of public use is at the whim of the agency and most activities are very much curtailed or stopped all together like prospecting. East Fork of the San Gabriel River is one that comes to mind that is most recent. There is a web site page that is devoted to this that is a part o...
