    Land Matters updated their Mining Claim Maps this past Monday.

    As we start into a new mining year everyone seems to be waiting for the newest claims closures. So far this year Nevada has seen the biggest changes with 55,000 acres opening up in just the last 15 days. Those ~2,700 closures are mostly relinquished claims from a few large mining companies. It's getting colder in Nevada so if you are looking to prospect for a new claim you will want to do so soon.

    Land Matters updated their Mining Claims Maps this past Monday.

    Utah closed a bunch of claims this period about 3,200 in the last 15 days.
    Closed claims since September 1 total 6,427 with 3,748 new claims located during the same period.
    We are just getting started on the new mining year - typically about 50,000 new claims are located each year.
    Oregon led in new claims locations with 398 new claims in the last 15 days.

    Land Matters Mining Claims Maps were updated yesterday.

    I seem to have missed posting the last update on the 1st. Rest assured these maps are always updated twice a month - unlike the paid service maps.

    I just checked and that adds up to 75 updates since we started these maps in October 2016. And counting...

    The Land Matters Mining Claims Maps were updated this evening.

    Arizona closed more than 46,000 acres of claims in the last two weeks - right in the middle of prospecting season. Lots of new areas opening up!

    Go get U sum.

    They closed some and opened land up for others?

    Current ACTIVE status mining claims are closed to prospecting. The land status changes when a mining claim location is made - that location is no longer open to prospecting or new mining claims.

    When ACTIVE status mining claims are reclassified as CLOSED the land usually is then open to prospecting and new mining claim locations. It is as if the mining claim was never there.

    So yeah - about 46,000 acres of land that was previously under claim is now open to prospecting and mining claims in Arizona. Just in the last two weeks. In some of the most productive gold producing areas.

    If you are a prospector looking for gold this is a good thing - 46,000 acres good.

    Now ... R U gonna go get U sum?

    Land Matters has a New Project map up for your evaluation.

    This new one is all about graticules. If you learned your orienteering in the military or if you've spent a lot of time studying maps like I do you've probably come to understand how useful those marked grid lines are on a map. Land Matters has figured a way to add a Graticule to any map. These aren't grids like a static map, they actually follow the curvature of the earth and are interactive - changing with your zoom levels as well as showing your location.

    All graticules show latitude and longitude so they can be really helpful if you know the lat/lon of a place but you don't know where to find it on a map. Why not give this feature a try and let Land Matters know if it's something you would like to see available on all maps?

    Just for fun I put the sample graticule map layer on the Historical Places map and turned on the "ghost Towns" map layer. While you are trying out the graticule feature check to see what ghost towns are nearby. You might just be surprised!

    Land Matters Mining Claim Maps were updated again yesterday afternoon.

    Interesting that there were two very famous claims closed in Utah in the last two weeks. These claims were over 100 years old and the fight to save them went all the way to the Supreme Court.

    In New Mexico there were more than 90 claims closed in Grant and Lincoln counties. Some of these were federal mineral claims on private SRHA lands - it appears all of the closed claims were on commercial deposits in productive mining districts. Might be something to look into over the Holiday if you are in New Mexico!

    Surprisingly the BLM updated their databases so we downloaded a copy.

    Yep the Land Matters Mining Claim Maps were updated earlier today.

    This update only covers claim activity through the 21st of December. There have been no new entries since the gov shut down so this is the most current information possible.

    The bulk of the changes are in Arizona where thousands of acres were opened up in some of the best gold mining districts. A smart Arizona prospector could find some interesting ground to explore.

    The LR2000 is back up and running.

    I guess the new boss told them to flip the switch. It did seem petty to take it down since the servers are already paid for.

    My brother in law and son the other day where talking about taking a cycle expedition this year with their Zeds and Pans.

    The big thing that came up was The Great Divide trail, plenty along the Divide to shoot and prospect. I have only done it one time my self and it was for riding reasons, only had a couple weeks off.

    But I just saw that Land Matters listed the TransAm Trail; now thats hardcore. The Great Divide we where able to come up with about 40 points of interest that you would want to spend a couple days at each location prospecting. Hardly worth the bike ride unless your a bike slut like us who just love cycling. Looking at the TransAm, I am seeing a great deal more, easy just off hand more than 100 spots if your into gold and stones.

    Thing about the TransAm is you can really diversify your route terrain from single track through hardball; meaning you could go either velomobile, road bike, fatbike, cross, hell or extreme freak with a Velove Armadillo.

    Has your site ever figured on adding the Great Divide Trail as well; I mean seriously, who thinks of bike sluts and prospectors combined, like no one except for that website. It is too small of a minority.

    But it would be cool too see the Great Divide overlay with that websites intel.

    Anyway, going to pass this TransAm off to my son and brother in law.

    Glad you found the TransAm trail map Oddjob. Sadly that one tends to get overlooked. It's a really cool map that shows a lot of what someone will encounter when traveling across the country on dirt. We have some younger members of our family that thought the TansAm would be a nice jaunt for a late summer trip. One of them even made it almost halfway without requiring hospitalization. It looks so easy on a map!

    We have been working on several trail maps including the Continental divide and the Appalachian trail. Just a few of the many projects that Land Matters has begun working on.

    The big thing that gets these projects moving is user interest. There are lots of maps to make for just two volunteers on a limited budget so we have a policy to put our efforts towards the most requested projects. We even have a page devoted to presenting these partially completed projects so users can give us feedback on what should take priority. Not surprisingly that's called the New Map Projects Page.

    Thanks for the feedback. Tell all your bike slut friends to let us know what they would like to see and we'll put them on the project list!
