    claim location

    What do you guys make of this claim location. Some guys grabbed one of my old haunts
    3 locators 40 acres.
    Claim broken down into small 5 acre segments to grab as much creek, but this appears to be breaking the 2 rules posted below??

    In all instances, a claim must also meet the following requirements:
    A location by 1 or 2 persons must fit within the boundaries of a square 40 acre parcel (1320 ft x 1320 ft);
    By 3 or 4 persons in 2 square 40 acre parcels
    By 5 or 6 persons in 3 square 40 acre parcels
    By 7 or 8 persons in 4 square 40 acre parcels

    In George Kendall, etal. (184 IBLA 71 (2013)) , the Interior Board of Land Appeals ruled that an aliquot part description can be no
    smaller than 10 acres, with a few exceptions.

    That's a BLM rule. The BLM will or will not deal with it.

    There is no law stating that rule so if you are thinking of challenging the claim you won't have a law to cite to the judge.

    Truth is people who know so little about locating a claim rarely manage to maintain their claim. This too shall pass.

    In many instances it would seem to be the most prudent way to locate a claim....and maintain the least amount of acreage and yet acquire the stream bed...In many placer locations the claimant acquires land mass that is not productive pay....if the placer is primarily located in the existing stream bed. Primarily the key in such a location is the recordings that signify a clear understanding of the claim location. It has to be clearly understood and recognizable. In general BLM tends to frown on such locations and the Placer Law even states that the locator should use the USGS surveyed system. If my understanding of such matters is correct.

    It might be prudent but it doent conform to BLM rules. With the narrow 5 acre subdivisions you could get a mile of creek with only 40 acres and 2 locators.
    Essentially that's what the locator did here, except the creek is not running a straight line.
