Reno, Nev.—Public land mining is big in Nevada. There are more than 200,000 active mining claims on lands managed by Bureau of Land Management in the state. These claims must be filed and paid by annual fees to be valid. Locating, mapping, and filing mining claims correctly will be the focus of a free public workshop offered by the BLM Nevada State Office on Thursday, July 24.
“Mining is an important part of the state’s history and economy,” said BLM Nevada State Director Amy Lueders. “Our goal is to assist miners by providing information and training that will enable them to accurately file claims within the appropriate timeframes.”
Workshop topics will include using the LR2000 system, bonding, land status, certificates of location, mapping a claim, annual maintenance fees, waivers, notices of intent to hold, affidavits of assessment work/proofs of labor and surface disturbance.
To attend the workshop, please RSVP by July 11 to Barry Bonnett, 775-861-6641, firstname.lastname@example.org or Lacy Trapp, 775-861-6599, email@example.com.
