    To completely understand the information that comes up when clicking on the "i", you need to understand the aliquot mapping system (meridians, townships, ranges, sections, etc.). BLM has an information packet about claims that explains the system (search BLM). Once you figure it out it's like you learned another language.

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    I have this weird feeling a similiar topic has come up recently.
    Landmatters was provided as a resource, I'm sure.

    #1 mining rule - check land status before you start prospecting.

    This little bit of free research prevents you from being that guy that leaves all the freshly scraped bedrock and neat little piles of evenly graded rocks for the claim owner to find when they manage to schedule a weekend to go mining.

    It also ensures you are spending your prospecting time as efficiently as possible. In other words when you find that really great paying spot..it can actually be YOURS to own instead of someone else's.

    Ask questions..lots of people here willing to help you learn how to do it the right way.

    All treasures found with permission on private property or on active mining claims.

    Land Matters provides books, tutorials and a three part video on understanding the public land survey system.

    As QNCrazy pointed out you need to start there before you can understand the land description system outside of the original 13 colonies.

    Do the work to learn the system and you will be well on your way to understanding what you need to know to find areas open to prospecting and mining.
